I’ve got news for you 2nd amendment, assault rifle toting nutjobs that suck at hunting so you need 100 round magazines. People are done with kids being slaughtered while everyone sits back with more “thoughts and prayers”. As a responsible gun owner myself I find it sickening that some of you on this site put the rights of weapons of mass murder above those of kids.
Sweeping change is coming in this country, we finally have a president that is sick of tired of status quo and actually has the balls to stand up to the NRA. Kind of ironic since alot of you have a direct hand in getting him elected, now you guys are scared to death of him.
You guys want to play solider with AR-15’s and AK-47’s go join the army, if not then keep you mouth shut when someone proposes a weapon that can shoot 500 people in 3 minutes is being looked at. I’ll keep my .22 for target practice and my Glock 9 for home defense, the rest of you get ready for some changes for once. I’m out on this subject, cant wait to see the meltdown that ensues after this post, but you asked for it by calling out the “Sympathizers” and “weak kneed Rinos”, whatever the hell that means.

I got a 2016 Perfexion on a trade, got it set up to shoot 3D, but haven’t got time to take it out and shoot it yet. But during my set-up time, I was really impressed with the draw cycle and how smooth it is. I usually shoot hoyts for hunting and target, changed to Mathews No-Cams this past year and have been very impressed with them (not fast by any means, but smooth and consistent), but if this Xpedition pans out, I may be making another change. I’ll keep you all posted.TysonTParticipantSeptember 6, 2016 at 10:39 pmPost count: 6669
I always used to use a 2 piece Hoyt permanent quiver until they changed the mounting hole shape. Then I switched to the detachable 1 piece style Hoyt quiver, they work great, and have a big loop on the hood end to hang them in the tree stand or ground bling. One of the best 1 piece quivers I’ve found so far.TysonTParticipantSeptember 6, 2016 at 10:38 pmPost count: 6669

If any new waterfowlers or guys with young kids that want to start their own spreads in the Waterloo area wants an inexpensive box of weights, line, crimps, etc. some new, some of it used let me know. I’m moving houses soon, and have a bunch of “extra gear” and old decoys that I’ll give someone a good deal on just so I don’t have to move it or store it in the new house. PM me, it will be very cost effective for you.TysonTParticipantJuly 26, 2016 at 2:14 pmPost count: 6669TysonTParticipantMay 13, 2016 at 7:02 pmPost count: 6669TysonTParticipantApril 16, 2016 at 1:15 pmPost count: 6669TysonTParticipantMarch 28, 2016 at 9:52 pmPost count: 6669

Looks like a waste of money. If you’re worried about torque, practice on your technique, get coaching, and remove your fat factory grips and replace them with side plates or no grip at all. If they weren’t gimicky, you’d probably see them being used by professional shooters that are winning tournaments.
I have an Uncle that swears by his, but I am kind of with you on this one. Fix the problem and you don’t have to worry about buying a Band-Aid to mask your problem.
exactly. there are cheaper/easier ways to fix a problem that’s not really broken. more time behind the wheel is usually the cure for bad shooting form.TysonTParticipantMarch 28, 2016 at 9:43 pmPost count: 6669
I’m running a 10″ B-Stinger out front and 8″ back bar on my Nitrium 34, both with quick disconnects. Also running a side bar on a 2008 Limbsaver Dead Zone 32 that I’m using as a turkey bow this year (and back-up deer), that one has a 12″ octane out front and a 6″ trophy ridge static for the side bar. I don’t think i will ever go back to shooting with-out a back-bar either.TysonTParticipantMarch 28, 2016 at 9:29 pmPost count: 6669

Sounds like you had a combination of issues, the biggest one one being incorrect spine weight on your arrows. I wouldnt listen to all the guys hating on your bow selection, many of the new entry level bows are on par with mid and some high level bows from a few years ago. If you like the feel of what you have, then go with it, work on your form and practice. Upgrade accessories if you want to find issues with what you have, and have fun.TysonTParticipantJanuary 13, 2016 at 3:26 amPost count: 6669
Not all string manufacturers recommend waxing your strings any more. There are alternative products (Venom brand makes some good ones), that are recommended by some string builders now. Also the use of a leather pad, can make heat/friction that could damage the string… best advice is to consult the string builder or bow manufacturer for their recommended string care techniques. For the strings though, check for fraying, separation of the servings and loose servings; most notably where it rides on corners of the cam (high wear areas). aAlso check the area that your peep is tied into, seen a lot of broken strings that came apart right in that spot. I’d also regularly check your nuts/bolts/screws to make sure they are tight… but don’t over tighten them. Check the limbs and cams for damage, nicks, dents, splintering or separation of the limbs. Also remove any dirt/debris, especially in the cams; dirt in the cam tracks can cause premature wear on your string and servings.TysonTParticipantJanuary 6, 2016 at 12:50 amPost count: 6669TysonTParticipantDecember 18, 2015 at 10:32 pmPost count: 6669TysonTParticipantOctober 4, 2015 at 4:03 pmPost count: 6669TysonTParticipantOctober 2, 2015 at 2:15 amPost count: 6669TysonTParticipantSeptember 30, 2015 at 2:26 pmPost count: 6669

I’d check with your CO. I would bet my last dollar that climbing spikes and gaffs are not legal on public land.
Your last dollar, or all of your dollars from the first through the last one? 😉 I’ve never read or heard anything that addresses them in any way, so I believe it’s probably a grey area that CO’s would have different opinions on. I wouldn’t doubt it if some new reg shows up in the next year or two addressing gaffs if more people start using them. They do marr up the tree surface, but don’t stunt or kill it, and since branch trimming isn’t illegal, I can’t see how gaffs would be either.
I believe that trimming branches is illegal.
You may construct a blind on a game
management area using only the natural vegetation
found in the area, except that no trees
or parts of trees other than willows can be cut
for that purpose.
I believe there is a section that states that branches less than 3″ (maybe) in diameter can be trimmed… I’ll try to find it.
Edit: Ok I couldn’t find it in the Regs book… not sure where I read that now. Might have been a county booklet for where I live referring to county conservation board owned land…
