    Treecoy, mock scrape, rub post- new install strategy

    Ended up putting a 4 pvc into the ground with I believe a norway spruce limb. It was pretty sappy. Added a burr oak branch and some grapevine. Added grave digger scrape fix into the soil. I guess will see how well it works. Added some Conquest rutting buck to the rub post and licking...

    Trespasser caught on camera

    Im gonna give my 2 cents here. Im a police officer and this is how Trespass notices are handled at least on a county or city pd level. You, if you are the owner, or if the owner of the property is willing has to sign a trespass notice and it is signed by the trespasser. You can set a...

    Muzzleloader Bullets

    Blackhorn shoots more consistant out of a dirty barrel. My guns shot alitte to way off with a clean barrel vs a dirty shot barrel. I have also shot over 35-40 rounds no swabbing and accuracy is unreal. There are numerous posts and tests all over the internet about not swabbing with blackhorn...

    Muzzleloader Bullets

    Yep your right. This is why I shot 290 Barnes TEZ's. Problem with those was even with my vortek ldr and 110grns of blackhorn 209 I couldnt get decent expansion. 2 Bucks I shot with those died fast, due to heart shot and a double lung, but the bullets seemed to pencil through leaving small...

    Cross Bows in Iowa....? I hope not

    Yep I agree. Idk who many lazy bowhunters Ive talked to saying if crossbow season opens there going to them b/c they can take 1oo+ yard shots. People can argue about the whole compound vs traditional stuff, but in reality there still both bows that you have to draw back and know how to shoot...

    Shooting from rest

    I run a Elite 3200 3-9X40 doa 250 bone collector with 3.5-5 inches of eye relief. Never comes close to my face. If your getting scope eye, you need a scope with more eye relief or a better fitting stock. As I said in my post above about sighting in, I sighted in my muzzeloader last year...

    Shooting from rest

    I agree with this. I shoot sometimes with my hand under the forearm of my 870 on a bag but I dont really pull down. I let it recoil as natural as possible. I also will shoot without any hold as you would on a muzzleloader or high powered rifle as stated above where you dont hold the front...

    First pull of the season

    Nothing to impressive yet. Got pics of this buck. Wanted some opinions. Looks similar to the bladed 8 I had pics of last year, but this deer still looks young. The bladed 8 from last year should have put on more I would think and have a more mature look. If you look closely on the right g2...

    thoughts on speed vs. Kinetic energy

    Foc arrows arent a type of arrow. Its just a way to improve arrow penetration and flight. Every arrow has a foc percentage. Look up the foc equation to see what foc your arrows have. Arrows with good foc also recover MUCH faster from the bending or flexing that archers paradox refers to compared...
