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.

Home built cams, any advice?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I am planning to mod my clearwater micro mag into a micro monster. Its a fantastic little bow, super fast, but the draw length is too short for me by several inches. I have duplicated the exact shape of the existing cams but made it almost an inch bigger all the way around. I plan to cut the new cams out of high grade aluminum sheet, which I already have. Will use same modules and cables, but will have to make a custom length string.
Anyone done this before? Any advice?

Woman new to archery… looking for advice, suggestions

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I am a 53-year old, 5’1", small-framed woman, strong for my age and build. I have been interested in archery for a long, long time and am finally doing something about it.

I very recently got a 62" Ragim Wildcat takedown recurve rated at 28# @ 28". My measured draw length is 23.5" and I estimate my draw weight to be 19-20lbs.

My goal is to become a competent instinctive shooter (rather than Gap or shooting with a sight), and am interested in competing in target archery tournaments and later (perhaps) field archery tournaments.

I’m working on form right now (split finger) but routinely shoot high (about 25 inches at 10 yards) and to the left. My grouping is inconsistent – usually at least fair and sometimes very tight – obviously, my form still needs a LOT of work. To try to adjust the arrow elevation issue, I moved my bowstring nock point up from 1/2" to 3/4" and plan on changing my anchor to my middle finger (instead of index finger) to corner of mouth. Have not tested yet.

I’m currently shooting Easton Genesis II 1820 arrows cut down to 25" and fletched with 2.5" feathers instead of vanes. I believe these Genesis arrows are way too heavy and stiff for my set-up and have been considering a switch to lighter Easton Jazz 1516 arrows. I want to build these arrows myself so I can tune FOC and soften Spine (the 1516 as spec’d by Easton has an FOC <7% and is probably too stiff for my set up). I also like the idea of having the jig, etc. so I can replace my own fletchings as I tear them up. Here’s what I have in mind:

1516 cut down to 25" with Bohning T nocks, TrueFlite 2.5" feathers, and the Easton 1816 (63 grain) NIBB to add extra weight on the front end. Per the online calculator at http://www.goldtip.com/calculators.aspx these specs should give the arrows an FOC of around 8.8% and the total weight would be 110 grains lighter than the Genesis.

Is my logic behind this arrow configuration valid? Any advice about equipment, form, practice exercises, etc?

I appreciate your feedback…

Need some advice refinishing my recurve bow

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hello everyone,

I have a Ben Pearson Spectre which needs to be refinished. I see this on the limbs; the outer layer is peeled off. It looks like a layer of some laminate but I don’t know what it is. Underneath you can see the smooth wood limbs:

How do I proceed? For the riser areas, I will sand and refinish simple. But for the limb areas, I am stuck. Should I sand off the shiny laminated portion so only the wood is showing? What material is it that I should use to re-seal it and get back that thick black finish? That layer is quite brittle and comes off easily with some effort.

Thanks!
Marc

edit: The bow is a great shooter @ #45! It’s perfect, no cracks, no limb twist. I just want to make it like new again.

1st time food plot advice

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

After having access to a suburbian business complex that holds a good amount of deer in the area. I got permission and decided it was time to give these deer something else besides hitting the flower beds at night and having no other need to be on the Business complex. The small plating area is on a overgrown path that that is used by the deer at morning and night but always seems to be hit or miss how often they use it. It’s part of a patch of thick stuff that is a few 100 yards long and about a 100yrds wide. My side of the patch has small lots on either side of the complex that I have gotten pics on my cam all times of the day during the Rut and been lucky enough to take 2 Small Bucks on the property. I haven’t gotten pics of the BIG Racks that I have seen boardering the complex. The food source is very poor except for flower beds near the buildings and the nicely landscaped blacktop walking paths around a lake on the property.

I have looked at the Sweetspot stuff and so far looks like the most promising. I also just seen a ad for the Roll out food plot. I have to do everything by hand. I removed a good amount of weeds and growth. Just have to hit it with some weed killer next. ANY advice will be helpful.

Thanks,
Rich

.this Buck was from last season.
