    Hoyt 2022, are you still happy with it?

    I have a '22 Ventum 33 Pro Shoots GREAT. Only reason I picked it up is because at the same draw weight as my Z7, its shooting the same weight arrow at almost 40 fps faster. In my mind that was a reason to change. The quiver system and picatinny sight mount are great additions in terms of accessory

    Home Solar thread

    Well as a short update, I was able to talk with a guy at work(but waay different department) and he happens to live just up the street from me. He did solar a year ago and its a dang good system.

I got the dude some basic info and basically a 8.76kw system will get me 120% of my peak usage. it sounds like it's going to be string inverter type instead of a micro inverter. I.I don't consider it to be...

    Jocko Willink Origin Hunting Gear?

    There definitely needs to be some sort of deciding criteria for what people define as 'quality' or "better" A company needs quality materials, quality workmanship, and a good QA dept. Kuiu (Toray) makes some amazing fabrics Origin (so far in my experience) makes a great pair of jeans At the...

    Danner boot sizing

    sure that might be the case but they won't re-sole if the welting comes up and I've burned through 2 sets of Acadias. first time I thought it might be my fault so I made sure to take a bit more care of my second set.. same thing happened.

    Danner boot sizing

    personally I wouldn't buy Danner. I've gone through 2 pairs of Acadias faster than. they should have worn out and the welting fails in about 3 months and Danner won't repair without charging more than the cost of the boot

    arrows for TAC

    my vote is cheap arrows. I don't hunt foam but I certainly am interested in seeing if I could make some hard shots without wounding an animal. I'm shooting no frills arrows as fast as I can get them. at the end of the day, if your ability to shoot is good and your site tape is accurate, you'll...
