Who’s first buck was big or a monster? – with pics

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

.

I was reading the Outdoor News with pictures of young kids who’ve shot some really monster, impressive bucks and it was their first deer. So it made me think about people on Archerytalk who’s first bucks were monsters. This applies to archery, muzzle loader, rifle, or pistol. (I’d like to shoot a deer with an iron sighted pistol like a .44 mag still). So put up what you got.

Who’s first buck was big or a monster?

This was my first archery deer that I recovered so I consider it my first archery deer. (I shot a doe about a week earlier, but didn’t find it for a few weeks after). He’s my biggest buck and although it seems 170" is the mark, I still think he’s a big buck.

He came in at 164 1/2" gross and 156 2/8" net.

First attempt at bare shaft tuning. Please help!

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Like it says this is my first attempt at bare shaft tuning. I have no real idea what I’m looking at. This is from 20 yards. As you can see the bare shaft hits left and slightly low. The bare shaft also points low and left. These movements get progressively worse from 5 out to 20. My guess would be this means the rest needs to come up slightly and to the right slightly. Before I start moving things please help me.

My first knives finally done.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

So about a year ago I started making my own knives for the archery hunter (or any hunter). After a lot of finished knives going into a drawer and not seeing daylight because I didnt want my name associated with them. I finally finshed 2 and gave them to my hunting partners.

Both are 154cm light weight drop point knives. 1 is orange g10 and the other is orange kirinite.

I didn’t make the nylon sheaths but what I did was remove the stock plastic liner and add a custom fit to each knife piece of kydex so the knives snap into place and wont move, the buckle is just added security.

My first attempt at DIY Archery Equip…

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Well I just got into archery a month ago or so, and so far all I have is an old Ben Pearson No. 3350 fiberglass bow (30#). I haven’t bought much in the way of equipment yet, as I’m waiting to get a decent bow (planning on the Samick Sage). Anyways, I needed an armguard while I work on my form with the Pearson, so I used some leather, a piece of cardboard, and some paracord to make this:

It’s obviously no work of art :embara: however it does the trick for now…

My son wants to go deer hunting for the first time this season!!! I had him shooting a recurve, mainly to build up his shooting muscles, then I was going to move him to a compound… BUT he shot the Scorpyd today… this was his first time shooting a crossbow… he really liked it and I think he wants to start with the Vent!

W&W RCX17 First impressions

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I had posted this on the TradTalk forums initially, but thought I would also post it here as well in case anyone is interested in this bow and doesn’t visit the other forum.

Got home today to find a W&W box sitting at my doorstep. I was impressed with how light the box was, knowing there was a complete bow inside. Opening the box, I found a nice black/camo zippered case, much like that of the Hoyt Buffalo case except it had W&W logo on it. The white thing at the top corner is my little Maltese who was curiously sniffing the new object.

Unzipping the case, we see a couple limb sleeves, a padded riser sleeve, a string, and bow stringer. Not pictured is a white box containing the allen wrenches and a sizable piece of fuzzy velcro pad. Again, my little doggie manages to make his paws visible in the photo. Curious little guy!

Out of the cases come the limbs and riser. I must say, the riser is truly handsome and fit/finish is impeccable. The riser is all-carbon and feels as light as a feather, yet very strong and solid. There is a single Berger hole present for elevated off-the-rest shooting. The shelf appears to have a mild chamfer at the belly side, but otherwise, not much in way of radiusing for shooting off the shelf. The window is cut well past center and should accommodate pretty much any type of rest one would like to use. (time to dig out the old trusty NAP Centerest Flipper!)

The wood grip is very nice and comfortable at a mid-low wrist.

Nice touch with the W&W Black emblem set into the right side of the grip.

One thing I really like is the limb alignment system. It just oozes quality as you can see by the bold sticker in the pocket.

The limb bolt is of the same type commonly found on other W&W risers and has a locking set screw in the belly side. Would be nice if W&W used SAE sized hex wrenches, but at least they supply metric wrenches of proper sizes. Better keep that little baggie of wrenches handy!

The limbs are equally nice and also made of carbon fiber with wood cores. The top limb has the little shield logo with a "Made in Korea" in the little red banner across the bottom. The carbon fiber weave you see on the limbs is real and not just a cosmetic veneer. Both snap into the riser with an authoritative snap and feel nice and secure. My RCX 17 is 45# and 58" overall length. Stringing up the bow and taking a few initial draws, the limbs are surprisingly smooth for being "kit" limbs and exhibited not a hint of stacking at my 27" draw. I started to feel a little stacking once I pulled to about my ear which would be about 30" draw. Not bad for a 58" recurve. With the bow strung up at the factory settings for alignment, the limbs were nice and straight. Glad to know the QC sticker on the bow means something! At my draw length, the digital scale reads 43# at the middle limb bolt setting. Pretty much spot on if pulled an inch further. The complete bow weights in at 2.38# hanging from my digital scale.

I have not yet done any shooting with the bow as I got home form work late today and thought I’d post up some of my initial impressions after opening the box. So far, I am impressed with the bow. It feels solid, despite being under 2.5# and has a very smooth draw. I would have liked to see a second Berger hole positioned closer to a radiused shelf for off-the-shelf shooting, but nothing some furniture pads can’t fix. On bows with Berger holes, I like to shoot off a rug rest and use a plunger to set centershot. I would prefer to put the arrow as close to my hand as possible, but I’ll have to build up this shelf in order to utilize a plunger. Who knows? Perhaps this is just a first generation of traditional bows W&W is releasing and we will see further refinements in the upcoming years. I certainly hope so.

This concludes my initial impressions posting. I’ll try to post up some thoughts about shooting with it later on the week when I have more time.

First out of state hunt…advice

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I will be flying to Wyoming at the end of August for an antelope hunt with Table Mountain Outfitters. This is my first hunt outside of my home state of West Virginia. Any advice would be appreciated. I will be flying to Wyoming. More than likely I will be hunting out of a ground blind. I have been practicing out of a blind and will continue to do so. Thanks in advance.

So, I have had the bow for a while, but couldn’t get the time to make a target. Last weekend I managed to cop one together and now we’re off to the races. If you’all would be so kind as to comment on my form, I would appreciate it.
Thanks for all the advice, pre-purchase. It really helped when talking to the dealer.
