This is a video that I shot and edited. Before anyone says anything, I will be the first to say this is not a shot to take unless you are dead confident with your abilities. This is a shot taken and discussed in a few archery circles. This is very educational for beginner archers, because you can see how easy it is to miss this shot. This doe was double lunged and shot through the heart..... Read More
Not a shot I recommend unless you practice it. I\'ve been practicing this 100 yard shot for 3 years now. Some of you members may have seen my video on the new bow strings I put on my 7 year old Hoyt TrykonXL this year. New strings out of the box with very little practice I hit 4 for 4 on a 3-D target at 100 yards. A little more shooting and tweaking of my right left windage and I was.... Read More
Second times a charm....Doe number 3! I sat this bean field the first time a week ago and had a old man on a bicycle ride down the field edge to try to get a closer look at a doe feeding in the beans. He didn't even know I was there, when he stopped 50 feet from me and the doe ran off. I didn't say anything because I know the guy and know he was just trying to enjoy the years he has left.....

This is the 8 minute video of Opening Day. Only one deer was harmed in the making of this video (and it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s not on the video) but you can hear it run into the ladder stand. These Rage 2 Blade Chisel Tips were extensively test for impacts with the dirt....lol! You can.... Read More

Well today was opening day of gun season here in the southeast and once again I found myself helping get the population under control on this farm. Wildlife officials say that 50 deer need to go. I've been blessed with 7 of them so far and they won't go to waist, that's for sure. I shot the first one with the bow and on film for a very good friend that is having some serious medical....

Well folks, I bought a new Video camera this past year and have searched the web for a reasonably priced camera tree arm. Wow....talk about 'sky's the limit', so are the prices. For an arm that is actually usable with a climber stand or any tree stand for that matter where the tree is to your back, you would have to spend in up-wards of $300.00.
I found this Gorilla Camera Arm online.... Read More
I just wanted to share a heart felt story about a kid that is dieing to go hunting!
I have a friend from many years ago, 31 years ago to be exact. Who's grandson has been sick for the last couple of years. The doctors could not find out what was wrong with him until they took him to a specialist. His diagnosis was 'Pandas disease'. This boy is 10 years old. Every day last year he would.... Read More
The first doe was shot off camera so here is the video of the second doe from opening afternoon. She didn't quiet get to the dinner table but, paused long enough while following a spike buck and a yearling doe for me to get the shot off. Too bad the camera would not focus after the shot but I watched her fold up 80 yards away.
I call this hunt the Cinderella Opener. In the past nine years I have found myself on the side of a tree watching the sunrise on opening bow day but, not this year. This year I had to finish up some work and return rental equipment. I knew the major move time was to be between 1:30pm and 3:30pm so I didn't get too bummed out.
My buddy had a ladder stand on a feeder that I was to.... Read More
Twas' the night before bow season and all through the house, everyone was scurrying, even the mouse! The washer was washing the hunting clothes to kill scent and mom was wondering where the money all went. As I nervously replied that it went for some hunting stuff, she turned away without even a huff! She to remembered September last year, when I started bringing home all kinds of deer. Back....

I shot this video after having my bow-smith put the new Flightwire by First String, strings and cables on my Hoyt TrykonXL. I chronographed this set up at 294fps. I\\\'m not making excuses but I have not shot my bow since the end of Turkey season.I shot 4 arrows two rounds at 55 yards and 1 round at 30 yards to make sure my sight tape was close and then shot this video. I was pretty.... Read More
