    Arrow Weight for Elk

    I've only been once and shot a cow with Douglas fir and bear greenies. Don't see cedar being an issue. I highly recommend surewood shafts. Heavy straight and durable douglas fir.

    Fletching choices

    Three 5" LW I seem to change colors a lot but my favorites are natural barred white and pink. I like a chartreuse nock most of the time.

    Knee pain

    My knees feel great. Jogging squats packed a small but whole whitetail out on my back just for kicks. But I've been researching knee strengthing exercises both preventive and therapy type. Hoping to avoid this next year! Thanks for all the advice.

    what is the most weight you have lost (body weight) on a backcountry trip?

    Traditional a handicap?

    Joe, I don't disagree but I do disagree. I believe hunting experience plays a much bigger part in someone's "handicap" But on the other hand take a person that is experienced in both hunting and proficient with both compound and trad gear. Then yes your odds go up with a compound. I am an each...

    Traditional a handicap?

    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...

    Spike Camp Hunting Techniques

    This year was my first time elk hunting. I started out about 3 miles in but due to hunting pressure I ended up 5 1/2 miles in camped about 1/2 mile from the elk ended up shooting a cow 6 1/2 miles in. I think hunting pressure weather and time to pack an animal out dictate the how far. I looked...

    Knee pain

    Knee pain

    The pain is right under the bottom of my knee. The first week it actually hurt to touch it. In the mountains both knees hurt like an sob! Down hills with a load were absolutely brutal! And stepping over downfalls with my right knee was excruciating!

    Knee pain

    It hurts going up more than down. Been 3 weeks now I think? Lol I've been to the gym 3 times trying to get some cardo in and last time I jogged 4 miles on a hill setting paid for it the next day! It's really bumming me out because I just stopped doing anything lower body wise. It is stiff and...

    Knee pain

    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?
