Hey guys I am heading to Illinois for a weeks worth of bow hunting. Any best practices, products, or brands that you find are light enough for bow hunting but very warm also. Lows expected in low 20 s the week I will be there Tks Southnboy@gmail.com
Just wondering how bad the deer jump string when shot at with a crossbow. Those things are super loud and I figured beyond about 30 yards you wouldn't hit a deer unless it was by accident. If you shot at a deer with your crossbow I would be interested to hear how it went. Thanks.
I had a most unusual sighting on a recent scouting trip down at the Atchafalaya Delta WMA. Back in late September we found this turkey, that was obviously very tame, walking around on the Big island. It walked right up to me. I checked with one of the game wardens who told me apparently someone released some that they had raised. Still cool seeing a turkey in an area where there aren't any in....

What kind of lighted nocks do you prefer? Please give the brand and any pros and cons that led to your decision. I have been shooting the nocturnal lighted nocks and love them. there is a positive on/off switch that eliminates the chance of them malfunctioning on impact. I have not had one fail on me yet. The only other brand I have tried were the BC luminocks. I did not care for these as.... Read More
