    Spotter opinions

    Glassing no more than 2-3 miles for elk and deer. Would you pick weight savings and packability of Nikon Ed 50/vortex 50 or would you jump to Swarovski/vortex 65? Most locations hunted won't allow for glassing of much longer distances. Keep in mind that sheep or goat hunts of any kind will...

    Broadheads and long distance

    What arrow, BH and vane combo are you using out to 100yds with excellent accuracy? I'm very happy with my BH and FT out to 60yds. Yet at 80yds my BH is constantly low by 12"+. My bow, I believe is well tuned as I have excellent groups out to 100yds. I should define my idea of excellent. I...

    Neuroma problem need help!!

    After injections solved my neuroma in January I finally got the courage up to hit the trail again with my boots. To this point running 8 miles caused no pain, hiking in sneakers caused no pain and carrying a 65lb pack while on the trail with sneakers caused no pain. I thought I was in the...

    How does ATA effect draw length???

    I have a 30" draw length and have read and been told I should not shot a 30" ATA bow. String angle is too steep. So, I have narrowed down my search for a new bow and most likely will be getting a Elite Answer which is 33.5" ATA. For those in the know, what is your opinion to ATA and draw...
