Found a Mountaineer Archery bow in the attic. Need some advice.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

So, I was looking in the attic a few weeks ago and found a very nice bow that my grandfather bought 20+ years ago just before he died. It is in immaculate condition. It was only used a couple of times. (he died a couple months after acquiring it) Having been stored for so long the string is not serviceable. It is heads and shoulders above my pawn shop find that I use now. It is complete with case and tool kit and everything. (bird droppings aside) Can you guys give me a push in the right direction as to where to start getting it back into service?

Markings are as follows:

Mountaineer STD
Ranger 3-D
Hyper-Flite PRO

Draw 29-31
Weight 55-70
string 58
Cable 44
Let-off 80

The draw was about an 1.5in long for me. I know nothing about these things. I shoot them, but I have never worked on one. Any information about the bow itself is also greatly appreciated. Family heirlooms deserve a complete story.

Arrow advice please…

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi all-

I’m new to archerytalk.com, but not new to archery. I’m looking for advice on new arrows. I currently shoot the ACC 3-60. I have nothing to complain about with these arrows, other than the possible bending or denting. Every time I decide I want to go full carbon, I end up with more ACC shafts because that’s what I’m comfortable with. I mainly bow hunt, but shoot two to three 3D shoots a year, non competitive. My hunting arrow set up weighs in at 416 grains and I’m pushing them off the bow at 294 fps @ 29.5 dl and 69#s. I’m not necessarily looking to go lighter or gain speed, I just have no idea what arrows to even consider. These arrows hit game pretty dang hard, I think that’s the main reason I don’t switch.

So I guess what I’m looking for is a dual purpose arrow to hunt or shoot 3D with. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for any help and taking the time to read my post!

Advice Needed… Stripped Torx Screw!!!!

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

So got a bow and the seller nor I knew that the draw mods had a dab of loctite put on them to hold them firm *maybe too firmly in place…. I tried to adjust draw and of course being I thought it was just real tight stripped the screw (not bad but bad enough). I figured I would try heating the others slightly and they came out like a breeze…

So im stuck here with 1 stripped Torx screw…..

WHAT IS BEST WAY TO GET SCREW OUT WITHOUT DAMAGE!!!!!

First time elk hunter advice

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I am in the process of planning an elk hunting trip for next September, I’ve been doing as much research as possible since last November. I really want to do it the right way, and be as prepared as possible for dealing with an entirely new environment. I’ve been bow hunting since I was 12, I’m 26 now, so I’m experienced with bowhunting, but I know that the high country and mountains are a whole different world from the river bottoms and food plots I hunt here in Iowa. I am approaching this process with a TON of RESPECT, when I show up in the mountains with only my bow and a backpack I want to be as prepared as possible.

I’ve been doing a lot of research on gear, and I have a final pack list put together, if any of you want to take a look at it let me know, I’d appreciate any feed back I could get. What I really want to get out of this hunt is a wilderness experience, it’s really important to me that the hunt is DIY on public land, I’m not interested in doing a drop camp or having any guides. I’m mainly looking at Colorado because of all the OTC units, and I’m willing to work to find elk. I’m in good shape, I work out 6 days a week, but the idea of packing a mature elk out on my back 10 miles in sounds unrealistic. My questions are, how far do you really need to hike in (especially in wilderness areas) to get away from the pressure, but not be so far in that packing out an elk seems impossible? If I’m lucky and fortunate enough to get an elk, do you guys have any advice on meat care, the best ways to keep it cool and clean etc.? And if you guys just have any tips or advice in general for a first time elk hunter that might make the overall experience more enjoyable/rewarding I’d love to hear from you, also if there are any books, videos, websites, gear, or anything else that you think would help me out please let me know

I appreciate all the feedback, you guys on AT are AWESOME, thanks in advance! AND GOOD LUCK THIS FALL!!!:smile:

Ryan

Ii shoot a BowTech Destroyer 350 at 70#’s with 29" draw. Felt like I needed more spine than my GT Ultralight pro 400s were giving me. I’ve changed to Easton Da Torche 330’s. 28" shaft, blazer vanes, Nocturnal lighted nock and 100 gr Rage 3 blade. My calculation came to about 375 gr arrow. Does that sound right? Is that good setup for my bow? Who else is shooting these shafts and what do you think?

Need some advice for everyday shooter…

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I’ve been digging through all of the forums for the past few weeks, and I think it’s time to actually ask the remaining questions that I have.

I will be using this bow for targets (2D and 3D). I don’t hunt, but who knows…I may one day. Whatever I get will be my only bow, and I don’t want to "collect" other bows. With that said, I have been loving the composite styles, like Hungarians, as well as recurves such as the Korean Hwarang bows. I am finding a gradient of bows that seem to dramatically vary in fps. Is there a self bow that is considered superior within the community? Like, as far as Hungarians vs Sythian vs Turkish…etc?

Sorry for the dumb questions, but I’ve only had experience with normal recurves and compounds, and there’s no place around me that sells anything outside of these. Ordering before trying kind of sucks. Anyway, thanks for any input!

DIY Black Bear Alaska – Advice Needed

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Greetings,

I almost put "advice welcomed" in the title but that’s too cool… I believe I *need* it. Gotta quickly explain how I got to this point first so there’s no confusion…

Oldest brother and father passed in 09 and 11, it was a game changer and I realized life was short so I’m going full pedal to the metal from now until whenever. A friend invited me to Alaska for the salmon run last year for 2 weeks. I stayed five and wandered for 3, made a bunch of new friends. One of those Alaska friends hunted 30yrs, bears for 10, mostly over bait.

I got inspired to make Alaska a yearly trip, even possibly move here very soon (oh yeah, I’m in Anchorage right now… 2 in Oregon, and 5wks in AK). I got home last August, immediately joined a great fish n game club, indoor archery league, winter league, practiced a minimum 5 times/wk, picked all the experienced brains that I could, spent hours studying – buying- selling – trading equipment, reading, discussing, watching 100s of videos, reading through forum discussions, etc.

My performance, accuracy or equipment is excellent. I score 415-420 indoor targets, practice 3ds regularly and have used the indoor hunting simulator w movement and obstacles etc…. Its my situation that concerns me most.

I asked my Alaska friend if he’d set up a black bear hunt. He agreed. Somehow there was a misunderstanding on when baiting season ended so he changed to spot and stalk instead. Then he got a job and had to back it completely. I’m already in Anchorage to play around a bit before the salmon run in soldotna from the 14th onward, expected to do that black bear hunting on the 10th-14th.

However, here’s where it starts to get interesting:

I’m also acquainted w the guy who’s cabin area we were going to be at (trappers creek, petersville area). I ran into him a couple days ago and he was kind enough to invite me along to the cabin with his family on the 4th of July. After about 150mi drive, is 18mi gravel, then 7mi by ATV….

…. designated "PREDATOR CONTROL ZONE".

yay, right?

Ok, so, he won’t be hunting with me but I’ll be able to either sit in a stand that’s over one of several recently dismantled, cleaned up bait stations (which I’m sure still smell like Anise) or I take an ATV about 1/2 to 1 mile out, find a high point and start glassing. If I harvest a bear or need help, my friend will come get me or help me skin the bear but otherwise, I’m alone.

Ok, so I understand a lot of the basic stuff – compass, bug dope, rain poncho, hip waders, studied wilderness survival w tom brown jr, etc. I’m not a big gun guy other than target shooting for fun at the range and black powder, but he’ll be lending me a 3-something winmag for bear protection.

SO….

While I’m a pretty rugged guy in most respects, I’ve only got an easy turkey hunt to my experience yet here I am about to head "solo" into a predator control zone in deep wild Alaska to spot and stalk bear.

Questions:

1. Am I crazy? I think its exciting as **** and part of my "go big or go home" mindset but is this really too big too early? Only live once, right?

2. Am I over-imagining the bear encounter aspect? I talk to people who hike for years on sitka and other densely populated bear habitats and they tell me they rarely ever run into them. What’s the reality.

Yes, there’s a bit of fear and trepidation but that’s part of the excitement of mastering self and the elements.

So, do you have any suggestions or advice, they’ll be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
