    Not worth much to a dealer…you would be better off selling your self… a dealer might only give you 100 to 150.00 tops or you can sell it your self for maybe 300….Last year I had a rider that was 1 year old took it to a dealer he gave me 600.00 for that one only because I was spending 4,000 on a new and better mower I also went from a 42″ tractor to a 54″ zero turn. So i got 2 zero turn mowers ones a 52 other is a 54″ My experiences is an older rider is not worth much

    So on Jan 2nd 2010 I met jeremy and tyler at McDonalds… drove to our first spot for a sit in the stand…. it was -20 deg with a wind chill of -40!!!!! jthe camera froze up and made it imposible to film any of the hunt… we sat for 1 1/2 hours…. and after not seeing anything…. and frozen feet jeremy and tyler decided that we would have to resort to deer drives. This spot that we were in originially sat in is usually a hot spot and if no deer are moving there then most likley no deer are movin period…

    the first field that we went to is another hot spot… we did 4 different drives on this property and the deer never left the field… just ran circles… somewhere around 30+ deer out of that field.. and a nice 150″ buck that jeremy and i jumped on our way to post for the drive but no shots… tyler and jeremy needed helmets and shoulder pads as they were takin turns doing the drives… deer were literally 3 yards away from them!! of course as we didnt have a gun or bow in hand…

    finally as jeremy was struggling on decision making…. deciding how to drive this property best with one driver and one shooter is tough… finally tyler and jeremy decided to just give it a try…

    As jeremy and I were walking to the post 8 deer jumped out of the bottom finger … jeremy quickly told me to sit down as we were in a good spot but not ideal… if we were to go any further the deer would have left for good… they held up a fence line connecting the two pieces of timber… with tyler on his way i knew that they would turn back to us… after a few mins the deer began runnig back down the hill to the finger of timber …

    then the show started!!!

    Wave after wave came running out of the timber and all i could hear was alan sayin..”this is so cool!!” … the deer kept comin and all held up by the creek.. about 145 yeards way..

    as the deer started trotting up the hill anywhere between 120 to 140 yard a way i told alan that we woulnt be shooting at those deer because we had 4 coming just right that would give us a shot… then i saw the buck…. i then changed my mind… 130” 8 point came out of the trees followed by another deer 10 yards behind… i told alan to get his gun up and take the shot…

    the deer wasnt moving fast at all but at a slow trot… when I pulled up the gun… I found the first deer that came into the scope… put it on MY shoulder and led him a bit until I was comfortable and squeezed off the shot!!! at first I thought I missed… but as tyler met up with us on top of the hill..Jeremy went to check for blood…. it didnt take long to find the good spray… since jeremy didnt see where the deer was hit… but had a good idea… tyler and jeremy decided to back out and give him an hour or so just in case..jeremy and tyler didnt want to make a mistake and bump his deer and make the track job longer than necessary…

    We drove back to Marshalltown to get jeremy’s card for the camera and then out to find the deer!! We knew that there was dark blood and alot of it… with the windchill hoovering around -30 degrees that the deer wouldnt last long at all. Turns out that the deer was this shed antler buck and ran only 80 yards!! jeremy ranged the shot at 135 yards and to make it better… DOUBLE LUNG!!

    8 years later i got me a bow and gonna give bow hunting a shot and hope to get 1 again

    If you are just getting into bowhunting,you don’t need a rangefinder

    What?!?!

    X2. I would say you definitely want one so you are not guessing. If you can afford one that would be high on my priority list.

    FWIW,

    Dustin

    Range finder is coming just not sure which one I wanna go with

    I have a Nikon Acculon. It works well as long as I’m not zapping black objects. I use mine for 3D shooting when allowed, it will not pick up black targets.

    I’ve kind of been looking into this one….still trying to decide trying to get some stuff now before next hunting season…i don’t have a whole lot so I gotta buy alot
