My wife bought the D5100 combo on Black Friday and from what I’ve played with it so far I’m impressed. I have absolutely zero knowledge with photography so I’m also interested in hearing the sports lens/setting combos you guys use. We have been taking it to the local HS games to try and learn how to use it a little better.
BTW, I LOVE that sunset photo. 😀webenicParticipantNovember 25, 2013 at 8:58 pmPost count: 122
Best way…..good old practice. The best thing I did for my shooting was getting into 3D. You learn a lot about your abilities and weak spots, and it’s incredibly fun.
You are likely pulling or lifting your head on the shot attempting to see where the arrow goes. This changes your anchor at the last moment and causes the inaccurate shot. The other possible reason for the shot missing is not bending at the waist when shooting uphill/downhill.
I keep my eyes on the target through the sight after the shot, and 99% of the time I will see the arrow at impact. Lighted nocks help a lot too.webenicParticipantNovember 23, 2013 at 5:54 pmPost count: 122
I had the HHA and loved it but later went to a multi-pin for my hunting bow. I just put together a target bow for indoor with an AXT Driver sight and it is working well also. Very smooth gear drive and is solid. Go with the .19 pin. My HHA was .19 and MUCH brighter and easier to pick up than the .10 on my AXT sight.webenicParticipantNovember 12, 2013 at 11:17 pmPost count: 122webenicParticipantOctober 21, 2013 at 2:57 pmPost count: 122
Stuff happens. If it happens again why don’t you politely tell them it is private and ask them to run elsewhere? Kindness goes a long way. Unless they were purposely trying to wreck someone’s hunt, I’m sure they would be a little disturbed to know that someone was watching/hunting their route. There are a ton of naive people out there…..if they aren’t familiar with hunting they probably think it’s too early for deer season yet.webenicParticipantOctober 16, 2013 at 2:12 pmPost count: 122
I tried mine (HSS Ultralite)over my bibs and under my coat last weekend and it worked fine. I’m still able to reach the suspension relief strap should I need it so I don’t see anything wrong with it. The lineman’s belt loops are right at the bottom of my jacket so it worked pretty slick. However the shoulder straps tended to dig into my neck over time and I’ll probably go back to wearing it outside of my coat.
One tip I’ll give is buy one of the rope style tree straps. Much easier than trying to thread the tree strap through the top of your harness, and it goes on the tree a lot easier than the tree straps. And, you can set it high enough in the tree that it is simple to adjust for proper height when standing up vs sitting. They also make a rope style lineman’s belt but I haven’t tried one.
I pack my hang-on in and out each time, so I’m always attached when going up and down(set-up and teardown). IMO the most important time to be clipped in is when into or out of the stand.webenicParticipantOctober 15, 2013 at 10:46 pmPost count: 122
Yes the ones that come with a stand can be a pain to put on, but for your family’s sake take the extra 2 minutes to put it on and use it. I upgraded because of the comfort and ease of putting it on/taking it off, but I have many hunts with an old gorilla harness that came with a stand. Take the time and actually try one on, most of them are not as bad as people think 😉webenicParticipantOctober 15, 2013 at 8:18 pmPost count: 122
Since he is obviously too cool to wear it, I have an extra harness from a new Millenium stand that I will send someone free of charge if they will actually put it to use. Since I bought the HSS I won’t use it and I’d like to help someone out if I can.
I thought the same way as rooster for a long time, but then I realized how much of a burden it would be on my friends and family if something serious would ever happen.webenicParticipantOctober 15, 2013 at 4:21 pmPost count: 122
I was using the cheap ones that came with my climber for a while but this year I’ve purchased a HSS Ultralight and I love it so far. I was actually hoping to get the Muddy harness, but Scheels in Sioux Falls doesn’t carry them anymore. I also looked at the big game one(tree spider clone) but didn’t like how the lineman’s belt attachments were placed so low and far back. My HSS came with a lineman’s belt too so that saved me ~$20. I have no regrets with mind and would highly recommend it.
