    2022 arrow selection/opinions

    Hey guys. I have not been on the forum much the past 6 months or so. I am just wondering what you all are currently shooting for arrows. I have been shooting Easton Axis 5 mm for about ten years and it is time for me to either buy more or switch to something else. I really don't have a good...

    Rifle option decisions

    Hey guys. I am planning to buy my first rifle within the next few months. I have mostly decided on a 7 mm rem mag because I plan on using this as my do all rifle. I have been looking at ammo availability and my local Scheels has quite a few options in 7mm so that should be fine. I was also...

    Help me pick a new bullet please!

    Hey guys. I have been using TC Shockwave 300 grain bullets the past 5-6 seasons. Last year I shot a doe - thankfully she went down in sight as the blood trail was very poor. Complete pass through shot at 20 yards - small entry hole and tiny exit hole. A few days ago my son shot a doe with my MZ...

    Muzzeloader muzzle velocity

    Hey guys. I am looking for input on muzzleloader muzzle velocity. I hunt with a 50 cal cva Kodiak pro and can't seem to find much information on this on the web (probably because there are so many load combinations). I have a Nikon 3x9 bdc scope so I have been using their spot on app to fine...

    Frontal/quartering to shot angle

    Hey guys. I'm gearing up for MN Muzzeloader season and have been running through some shot scenarios in my head. I have been muzzleloader hunting for several years and have taken several deer. My question is this - when you are faced with a hard quartering shot angle do you: 1. Pass on the shot...

I don't know much about the used tractor market right now but am assuming the prices are high, similar to used vehicles at the moment - anyone have any insight on this? I am thinking I want something at least 35 horse...

    9mm ammo near Des Moines?

    Hey guys. I'm going to be passing through the des Moines, IA area this weekend. Anyone know of any 9mm ammo available in that area? Seems to be tough to get everywhere but just wanted to ask. As most people know, the places that do have it are charging quite a bit for a box ($35-$40). I'm down...

    My first kill with the SEVR 2.0

    Hey guys. Just wanted to share my experience with the SEVR 2.0. I was dead set on fixed blades this summer but just never felt they were as accurate as they should be (even after exhaustive tuning) so I ended up with the SEVR 2.0. I shot a doe last night at 22 yards. My setup is a Bowtech Reign...
