I know you've noticed it. For the past year and a half no matter how carefully the OP narrowly defines the topic to where there may be a handful of people on here with actual experience/knowledge of the subject, within a half-dozen post the original question has been "drug off on in the bushes" where it will never be heard from again and will reappear only on milk cartons! It's not your fault...you've done your social duty and been glued to you keyboard staring at the monitor over your mask for nearly two years! Good news, my brothers..."the Season" is upon us. Now let go of the mouse...slowly back away...go to the woods...and actually hunt something. In the meantime I'm calling Batman and we're going to conduct a corporate "prayer vigil" for all you'uns recovery!

From: A Tag
Date: 16-Sep-21




DanaC, the 12x56 Bugeyesers have too much magnification and cannot be held steady enough to use for glassing without a bipod. They may advertise them as compact but you might want to try a set of Lone wolf climbing steps instead of a bipod stand.

From: Supernaut
Date: 16-Sep-21




A Tag, that is a valid point regarding the usage of the climbing steps but......

Can I ethically hunt a thought to be extinct Tasmanian Tiger with a 27#, "Supercurve", fast flight string wearing, Single 1 inch fletch arrow shooting bow? I'd of course limit my shots to under 67 yards unless, "it just felt right".

Enquiring minds want to know.

From: JusPassin

Actually, speaking of milk cartons, did you know the milk inside may or may not come from cows grown in the United States? You may be drinking mild from Argentina.

From: Rick Barbee Compton's Traditional Bowhunters

What does "Mild Agentina" have to do with this topic?

Also, did you know it comes in different colors. I was floored when I found that out.

I was drinking almond milk for awhile,suppose to be healthier.I found out most almonds are grown in California.I don't want to put some cow out of business so its back to milk for me.I need to be strong for the upcoming bow season.

Milking almonds, that’s just nuts.

Nut corps are just slightly behind irrigated alfalfa for water consumption. Nuts in California take approximately 1900 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of nuts.

If your not using a two pound arrow with a fast flight string your bow your not getting enough penetration. If you can't get six inches of penetration in a oak tree you'll need a heavier arrow and a sharper broadhead.

Don't let this sht distract you from the the fact that in 1966, Al Bundy scored four touchdowns in a single game while playing for the Polk High School Panthers in the 1966 city championship game versus Andrew Johnson High School, including the game-winning touchdown in the final seconds against his old nemesis, "Spare Tire" Dixon.

From: Supernaut
Date: 16-Sep-21




You think Al Bundy would shoot "Hill style, swing draw"?

Would he have scored 5 or more touchdowns instead of 4 if he did?

Would guys argue it on an internet forum?

From: tinecounter
Date: 16-Sep-21




OK, that's enough; let's drop the phony Al Bundy references and get this thread back on the LW serious, no nonsense traditional track that is the forum's hard earned trademark. If moderator sees that post, this thread is history. Good info lost.

I was about to leave for the range n y'all reminded me. I'm taking a 57lb bow to shoot so do I need 700gn arrows for range bags. Or can I shave em down to 570gns to shoot flatter at 10 yards?.

From: tinecounter

Knifeguy, always place camera on opposite side of tree. Game trail cameras are not camo'ed well enough to prevent game from spotting them. Most pics will be of game rear ends, but will closely resemble hunting encounters.

Now I got a hankerin’ for some peach-flavored almond milk!

Getting this back onto an archery-related topic, it seems that George Harrison was a toxophile. At his wedding to Patty Boyd, his nephews were getting bored and fidgety so his friend and bandmate Paul McCartney took the boys out and taught them to shoot George’s bow and arrows.

After that, the fledgling band eventually became moderately successful and developed a bit of a following. I’d like to think that archery had something to do with that.

olddogrib, Frisky isn't famous, he's notorious.

And anyway, back to the non-topic of binoculars...

When does the objective lens size take binoculars from 'compact' to 'full size? Or is there a 'mid size' that nobody talks about? Is there a conspiracy to hide the very existence of mid-size optics?

From: tinecounter
Date: 16-Sep-21




2 bears, fletching gets heavier as color gets darker (additional feather pigmentation). Fletching color info to keep in mind when choosing cock feather. Wrong fletching color combination will throw arrow out of balance and affect arrow flight. Being a true traditionalist, I don't know if this info holds true for vanes.

And now I'm curious, are dark feathers like blue or black heavier than yellow or pink? Are red and green about equal, weight-wise?

From: Jinkster

DanaC...Pink and Green are heavier colors because you have to mix two colors together to get either....to get pink you have to mix red & white and to get green you have to mix blue and yellow and everyone knows that one color is lighter than two but white is the lightest because it's the absence of color...bleach works.

Now where'd my slippers go?

From: Supernaut

You have to take into consideration what species of swallow the feathers came from, African or European, when determining weight or flight speed for that matter.

As long as you choose matching colors for the hen feathers and the cock color is of a weight that is diametrically opposed to the g force weight of the hen colors then you will get good arrow flight. Think I saw that somewhere on here, maybe GF?

I once set a supermarket staff in a tizzy for two hours looking for "canned gloit". The odd thing was the manager looked at the shelf stocker like he was stupid and said, "oh, heck, that's in aisle 6! I am FIGHTING to keep from laughing while he looks, and, of course, no gloit. He tells me he will get to the bottom of why they weren't carrying this important ethnic item. He wanted my number so I gave him one. Two things: 1. After he called corporate, did they actually look for it and is he still employed. And, 2. Did any of you guys get that call?

When you try too hard to avoid motion and cut your string with the broadhead does that void the strings warranty? And can you get broadheads killing sharp but not string cutting sharp?

From: Supernaut
Date: 16-Sep-21




GLF, It shouldn't void the strings warranty unless it's a fast flight string padded with 180 strands in the loops so you can blow your own horn about using it on your vintage bow without causing damage.

Only "Premium" broadheads will get killing sharp but not string cutting sharp but you have to provide a doctoral thesis in physics when you purchase them to unlock that benefit from what I gather.

Well, one of the old girls kicked the bucket. When I found her, whe was still about lukewarm. No idea what killed her, she just laid down with the rest of the herd and died right there; no struggle, nothing. Guess we all need to go like that... Anyway, to make a long story even longer, I came back to next day to find about 20 buzzards doing what they do best. Since they had already added insult to injury (and they cant get past the hide to really to a good job of getting it cleaned up), I thought I would run an experiement on my bow and get some preseason practice in.

Got 2219's, pine shafts, and cedar. I had one bh, a Rocky Mtn Razor. I shot it and, well, it was ok. Good penetration until it hit the spine. It lodge in and died right there. This is where it gets interesting. The rest of my arrows had field points. The cow was already starting to swell (the legs had attained lift-off). It needed a hole started to get the gas out and the birds/coyotes in, so I shot it. The arrow hit solid, and came back at me. Now I was using a Howatt Hunter with 60#. Aluminums, wood, they all came back. Approx 60 attempts, not one single entry. This is not scientific, and I did not have a Magnus, etc to test the cut on impact heads. I did, however, come to the conclusion that if anyone goes to Africa to hunt those water buffs, you need a lot of bow, and a damned serious head.

BTW, the four blade bh I used went in 1/2". That is where it will stay too; it flew terrible, and the cow can have it as far as I am concerned.

So, there you have it. Maybe someone cam use this information. At least now we all now that you cannot kill a dead cow with field points.

P.S.

I stuck one one time, and threw sticks at it trying to get it to dislodge.

Finally made the squirrel slide down the shaft enough to fall off the end to the ground, but I still had to climb the tree to get the arrow.

Squirrels and judos in trees you say,

Have you ever climbed a tree to retrieve a dead cow? Now that's some real "Legend" Fred and Howard stuff there. I'd bet you wouldn't need any type of BINOCULAR to see the cow but you could probably lasso it with the record breaking THREAD.

I'm sure a lot of members think we are just being silly here, even childish. I'll just hit them with the old, "Laughter is the best medicine" line. I guess that depends on what ails you, sometimes it's penicillin and a few shots....so I've heard.

I grew up poor and we couldn’t afford ADHD. When I had my archery shop, you couldn’t give those bows away, now everyone wants one. I never shot one myself, but with a well-tuned arrow and a properly sharpened broad head, I’ve gotten complete pass-throughs with a 27# bow measured at my 23” draw length. Of course, that’s with my 1961 Bear Mambo Magnum and it takes more than some AI powered interactive spine calculator to figure out the right numbers to tune one of those. No one here understands how to do that any more. Used to do it back when I was a founding member of the Pennsylvania Association of Braggart Archers. We just called it archery back then and everyone shot paper targets pinned to a hay bale from 80 yards. Didn’t have not need for those 3D targets - couldn’t afford ‘em any way.

I bet that your computer is manufactured in China, and your mobile phone too. I don’t have a mobile phone. But I have a lot of canned goods in my basement. That’s where I make my endless loop strings. Guess that makes it archery related. Been doing it that way since the 1960’s and don’t see no need to change.
