I went on my first elk hunt and shot a cow this year. Many people commented great job and with trad bow. How many of you feel like a simple stick n sting is a handicap? Me personally I've shot compounds with sights etc and to me that's a handicap. When I have a critter in front of me it's just a...
Been back from Colorado for over a week and my right knee is still hurting. I don't think I twisted it or anything damaging while in the mountains? Anyone else have issues after hiking for several days?
Ok I've extended my range out to 50 yds (would never take a shot at a live critter less I was 8 for 10 on the range and it was an out in the open kinda shot) but my problem is if I can blur the arrow/ rise I'm in. If I can't I shoot wide right or left trying to stay focused on my spot. You guys...

All our preparations: exercise, practice with our weapon of choice, pouring over maps, scouting, etc got me to thinking.... How many of you practice packing unpacking gear, setting up and tearing down camp? I'm thinking if everything has a place and I know where everything is/goes I can be more...
Who does yoga as part of their training? I started today and all I can say is I will keep doing it! It is way harder than it looks and I can see it as a way to relax tired muscles after a day of bushwacking.
Trying to think of ways to reduce the weight of my pack. Thinking about removing some of the padlocks being there a ton and a lot of them are in non ideal places. Has anyone done this? I have a blue widow by the way if that helps.
I bought a new recurve last summer and have always used a back quiver. I don't see me dragging around a heavy leather back quiver on a backpack hunt. Trying to decided on a limb bolt quiver or a light weight quiver I can attach to my pack. What do you use and way do you prefer it?
My area got hit hard with the drought the deer took a beating. Anyway hunted 2 days with my daughters and what is normally 10 to 15 deer sightings a day was 0!!! Should I even take them again? I don't want them to get so discouraged that they give up on hunting.
Just curious to hear some anchor points others use. I have always been in the corner of the mouth but during actual hunting situations I tend to draw longer and always pick a spot at the bottom of the chest to compensate for it. I'd like to find a rock solid anchor.
I know the area I'm planning to hunt has at least one outfitter that runs wall tents and horses. Does anyone have experience dealing with this? Planning 4 1/2 mile hike before leaving the main trail for game trails. But my scouting showed evidence of horses just about everywhere I went even...

Ok so I noticed I get pimples were my harness rides on my shoulders and chest. Also after a long weekend without a shower hiking in the mountains my face has broke out. Anyone else have these problems?
Ok was thinking about flying to Denver then renting a truck driving to my spot and if I get, actually
when I get my elk driving back to KC. Has anyone else done something simalar? I hate my IPhone sometimes meant flying verses driving.
