    Who's heading Moose hunting this fall with an X-Force?

    We are heading up moose hunting this fall and i am just wondering who is as well and what x-force they will be taking with them?...I am going for the vacation,to get away with my father,do some fishing,grouse hunting and hopefully get a chance at a bull in the rut....But most of all to spend some time with my dad and have fun...Grizz

I met this six year old child with this blank,pale,emotionless face,and the blackest eyes,the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply evil"...

    Nice,we should get drawn this year for a bull tag,if we don't,oh well we are still going to fish and to grouse hunt and scout a bit....How do you like your full throttle?I plan on picking up a Omen max or a Full throttle as my next bow.That could be 7-8 months,I'm in no rush to add to the collection right away...Where about are you heading?We are heading up for the 20th and stay until the 27th of September....We are heading up to the Hearst-Longlac area,just a bit west of Hearst....Grizz

    Just got the throttle and I am still getting aquainted with it.It really wants to head to the target fast.There is no creeping with it.Our group heads up to the Red lake area which is about 22 hrs drive.We will be going up around the 23rd and staying at least 10 days.

    Sounds good,there's only 2 of us,maybe 3-4 going.All depends on tag situation.I have been to Red lake,i worked up in that area.So the throttle wants to go at all times,eh?I have been shooting my Omen and Vendetta a lot lately and maybe in my old age but i am having a hard time putting the vendetta down,i am shooting it and the omen the best out of all my bows at this time.Of course,i have been shooting those 2 the majority of my spare time,the last 5 weeks.I have another bow coming here shortly that i believe will be coming moose hunting as well.How many in your crew?...we like to keep ours small...Grizz

    I am seriously getting the urge to start looking for a Black 60 lbs Omen Max with 28" cams,i love the omen,had 2 Omen pros and preferred the original Omen but,i kind of want to add the Omen max in black to the collection...I enjoy the Uf cam at 60-63 Lbs,one of my favorite cams built.The Omen will be my moose hunting rig i believe this fall,just starting to build some custom arrows for moose in the next few weeks,i will be building an arrow close to or a tad more then 500 gr,i believe i will be using Steel force phat-heads and my father will be using Grizz trick 2 broadheads.....Grizz

    i picked up 2 dozen arrows,i plan on building them for moose hunting.I will be putting 100 gr brass inserts in the .300 spine and 50 gr inserts in the other dozen i picked up.I plan on putting 7" white wraps with white vanes on them.I will be shooting 100 gr Steel-force phat heads from one set up and 100 gr wasp bullets from the other setup i take with me,still undecided on the 2 bows...i picked up a new primos bow sling today to go along with my tenzing 1140 for the moose hunt.I have an older primos sling and my shorter ata bows would fit but i never felt comfortable.I put my x-force treestand Hf in it and wow,this is 3 times the sling the original is....very happy with that purchase,i was considering buying a whole new pack.Sure am glad i did not...Grizz

    so this evening i went up baited up my bear baits and took my vendetta with me to fling a few arrows when i was finished.I have to say,that the more i shoot this setup,the more i love it and at this point I'm almost certain it will be making the trip up north for moose hunting this fall....i believe i will shoot the 100 gr steel-force phat heads out of this with a 500 gr ish arrow .300 spine.65 lbs,28" draw.I am feeling very confident and shooting better with this bow then any of the ones i own at this time,here it is in the new sling...the sling was worth the money...imo......Grizz

    Sounds like a blast, I enjoy living in and huning Kansas whitetails but would love to hunt elk,moose etc...to expensive these days to travel and pay out of state tag fees.
    Good luck!

    Nice,i hope you enjoy the new bow..We have it good,we now have an Elk draw for an area an hour or so away..,i can hunt bear,turkey,whitetail,grouse,d ucks,geese etc on my own land and travel a bit for moose...i really have no reason to go out of province except i want to hunt antelope and mule deer....first is i hope to get a bull tag this year for moose...I cant imagine paying some of the prices people do to kill bears..but that's just because i can kill them 2 minute walk from my camp door...Grizz

    Thanks..It makes for a long summer when your waiting for early September for bear hunting and then the 20th for moose,we do not do a lot of duck/goose hunting anymore on our land,as we mostly bow hunt,so we try and keep it quiet.I will be doing a ton of bass fishing this summer and shooting my bows getting ready for bear/moose and then deer season.I already have over 750 pictures of numerous bears hitting my baits every night.There is a Big sow with 2 cubbies,she has been there for 8-9 years now,have another boar who will be pushing 300 lbs come September and then the big boar who's 475-500 lbs,he has eluded me the last few years,i had him at 13 yards opening day last year and could not get a shot at him.He would not commit to the bait until it was dark...my heart was pounding pretty good that night....if i do shoot him this fall,i am getting the full body mount and will never kill another bear again...I hope to have the same experience with a moose as well...That's why i hunt...for the adrenaline rush...well,and the meat...

    Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle: when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.

    i am debating on shooting the Bi-polar broad heads on the end of my 500 gr ish arrow.Soon as the brass inserts arrive in the next week or so,i am going to start seriously getting my 2 setups ready to take on the hunt...i am at this point stuck on which 2 rigs to take.I really like the lightweight of the Tree-stand Hf and that i am shooting it really well right now,i am going to get it set up with the 500 gr arrows tipped with the Bi-polar set at 70 lbs,28" draw and shoot it for a week or so... and as of right now the Vendetta XL/DC will be coming along for sure with arrows tipped with Wasp bullets and Steel-force Phat-heads.I have the confidence that any or/either of Bi-polar,Bullets and Phat-heads will get the job done if i do mine...Grizz

    i received my supplies to build my arrows the other day.So far i built -(12) .300 spine 9.8 gpi with 100 gr brass inserts.(Victory Vforce)
    -(6) .400 spine 7.7 gpi with 75 gpi brass inserts(Easton bloodlines)
    -(6) .330 spine 8.7 gpi with 75 gpi brass inserts (Easton bloodlines)

    I am still trying to determine with dozen i want to build with the 50 gr inserts i purchased as well.The only arrows i have shot have been the .400 Easton bloodlines out of my 28", 62 lbs Pse Revenge,it was fairly windy yesterday but i have them shooting great out to 30 yards.I am now leaning on talking the Revenge because of it's size and that i love to hunt with it.I have the 100 gr Steel force phat heads on the tip of those arrows and i have those arrows footed as well.Next up to try is the Axe 6 shooting the Victory Vforce arrows at 28",70 lbs tipped with 100 gr Slick tricks.

    I am still waiting on some wraps to change on the Victory arrows...Grizz

    I just went and fired 15 arrows with my Axe 6,the Victory vforce .300 tipped with the 100 gr brass inserts and a Slick trick mag.Hits like a mac truck,one little click right on my Hha and i was dead on at 15 yards.I can't shoot any further in my basement.I am heading up to camp later and plan on taking the Axe 6 and Revenge with me to get them dialed in out to 50 yards...Grizz

    these are the Easton Bloodline 400's that i originally footed to try,i then added 75 gr brass inserts to them and like them,that's why i have not added the brass inserts to the other 400's yet.I want to do some testing with both sets out of the Revenge before i do add the brass inserts to the pink fletched 400's...I will find out this weekend...Grizz
