Be ready for field repairs

Every bowhunter’s worst nightmare is to have equipment issues in the field. Regular maintenance can greatly reduce the chances of this happening, but there is always a possibility.

Itís an exotic thing

January marks the end of hunting seasons across most of the country, with some ending at the first of the month, some at the end. Bowhunters are often at a loss when they realize they’re face a long offseason, wishing they were in a tree stand. These hunters can take heart however, because there are many great opportunities available to them bowhunting for exotics, but particularly in the Hill Country of Texas.
