    Long range tips

    I know it is late to be attempting to "fix" any issues with my long range shooting. However, I will say I am extremely confident (90-100% confident) in shots 30yds and under and probably 75% confident at 40yds. Outside of one deer I killed at 36yds, I don't think I have ever killed one over...

    Long bow project

    Well, I went ahead and ordered an unfinished longbow. I have absolutely no desire to pick up a compound bow, ever. I'll kill deer with my crossbow and then have fun with this thing. It's 71" long and 41# and will accommodate my long draw length. If I don't like it, I'll hang it on my wall! I'll...

    Won't be long now!

    I started working on the boat over the weekend and hope to have her in the water by April 1st. The lake was full of ice on Saturday but I just talked to a guy who said all the ice blew out with the strong south winds from yesterday (a north wind will bring it back). The early season jig bite...

    Its been a long night

    It has definitely been a long night. I had a 10 pointer come in last night in full velvet here in North Dakota. Most of the bucks had already shed so I decided to take him. My mic battery died so it was tough to get on the same page as my camera man. When I finally shot he was quartering away...

    Secrets to a Long Happy Marriage

    A old man was sipping on a glass of bourbon, while sitting on the patio with his wife, and he says, "I love you so much, I don't know how I could ever live without you"... His wife asks, "Is that you, or the bourbon talking? He replies, "It's me...talking to the bourbon." :pickle:

    How long do you have?

    http://media.nmfn.com/tnetwork/lifespan/ Mine says 86. I want to see what it says about Joe, though no questions about jealous husbands, so he probably will get a number over 40.

    Hummingbird Long Bows

    Anyone have an opinion on these? I have one offered to me in a trade deal. The only problem I see is the draw length. It is 26" and I believe I am 27.5" with a longbow. It has been a while. My compound draw length is 28.5-29" depending on loop length.

    Gun season not so long ago...

    My story starts out with me being 8 years old and going to my hunters safety course with my dad. After a couple nights of going to class and learning all about hunting, gun safety, and the outdoors, I passed my test and was ready to hit the woods. My first few years hunting were exclusively for...

    This evening I cleared out a spot to put in a food plot. Im putting in some antler king no-till in one section and turnips on the other. I just mowed the area with a push mower and now Im planning on spraying some weed killer on in it. My question is how long do I need to wait after the weed...

    How long will the ice last?

    It's melting! It's melting! :smiley_crazy: Since this is my first year of ice fishing, I've not paid much attention to how long it takes for the ice to melt off and not be "safe" to fish. However, the ice will surely melt quicker than it froze. One thing's for sure and for certain...it won't...
