    When I first started, I used the straight clamp with an offset. I switched to helical shortly thereafter, and haven't looked back since! FWIW, I think when most people refer to straight fletching,...

    hmm...that is a sweet deal. The only thing that concerns me is that it was stored in a case with broadheads on the arrows. seems like that might not end well if one popped loose in there.

    I just sent in a scope I put on my new AR I just built in 300blk. Something came loose internally, and it wouldn't focus anymore. Not too impressive for a brand new scope, but we'll see how their...

    I'm all about carrying firearms. I carry as often as I can, but Illinois has so many gun-free zones, it can feel like tiptoeing through a minefield at times. Anyway, it really annoys me that this...

    Clethodim is the best product for grass weeds. Mowing does control broadleaf weeds fairly well, but grasses tolerate mowing fairly well, so a little chemical assistance may be needed if you have a...

    Regular Ag lime does take time to start working, because of the different aggregate sizes. However, if you can find a feed-grade or pell lime, those will work much quicker. Feed grade lime is just...

    Trust me - I'd rather be average. There are a lot of really nice bows out there that I'll never get to shoot, simply because they aren't made in long draw versions. On the other hand, arrow building...

    I'll second this.

    I'd also add that, if you don't agree with a particular type of hunting, you should put your money where your mouth is and lobby your elected representatives. They're the ones...

    I didn't sign, because I don't buy that overpriced UA garbage, anyway. Reason number 2: I don't know the Bowmars and had never heard of them before this video hit the news. If they wanted to be...

    Well, I guess it's time for me to formally introduce myself. My name is Chris. I hail from the beautiful Sangamon river valley of east central Illinois, which is also my primary hunting ground. On...

    I'm no expert on the subject, so take this with a grain of salt - My wife is working her way back up to shooting shape, and I push her to shoot daily. However, I encourage her to stop shooting as...

    Each blade has a tab, and they interlock with each other when open. Its kind of a hassle, but you have to stick the wedge between the blades to get those tabs to disengage. It usually takes me a...

    I have my wife set up with Thunderheads. I got 'em secondhand from the FIL - just had to put some new blades on 'em and get them tuned. They're sharp as hell and fly great. Couldn't ask for much...

    I have a 70# bow set at 60# right now. My next bow will be a 60# model. I see no reason to pull any more than that, based on how I hunt.

    I keep mine in a ziplock bag off season. It's 3 or 4 seasons old and it still smells just as terrible as the first time I opened it.

    I've never tried them before, but Toxics would be on my list. Pretty sure you don't need to shoot em to know they're a bad design.

    As far as I know, property size doesn't matter, as long as you're the proper distance from any occupied dwellings or public roadways. Of course, you should always check the hunting/trapping digest,...

    If its in full bloom, then its definitely time to give it a haircut. Cutting it will stimulate fresh vegetative growth that's a lot more palatable to the deer. If you're in Illinois, there's still...

    I'd talk to the landowner to see what the heck is going on. When a farmer leases or cash rents a farm, 99% of the time the lease agreement only covers tillable acreage. We had an issue with a...

    Higher FOC is always a bonus, whether you use heavier broadheads or heavier inserts to achieve it. Unfortunately, I have a 32" draw length, and I shoot a 32" arrow shaft, so its pretty easy to get...

    Similar material, just less calcium in it. A lot of feed mills are dropping dical and stocking monocal only, because they're somewhat redundant products.
