Arrow life….. #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

New to this hunting style, and very quickly, I was given a 2009ish PSE Diablo single cam bow with all the accessories and 6 arrows. It was the backup bow for my mentor and he had it tuned to shoot BH and FP to same group with the arrows he gave me. (Gold Tip Velocity 300′s w/ 100 grain tip and he also gave me 6 100 grain Magnus Stingers).He told me that I would need to practice diligently this year if were to hopefully be ready for season this fall. I did. From early this spring thru summer , and I feel I am shooting and learning pretty well. (Even though it is a little overwhelming trying to keep up with what I read here in this forum)

Now, my question. I couldn’t begin to know how many shots are on these arrows. Is it OK to screw my BH on and go ahead and hunt with them or should I get new arrows? I am hesitant to go to my Mentor with this, he has been so generous with me and I know that he would just build brand new arrows for me and not except anything in return. I really don’t want to further take advantage of his generosity.

If you think new arrows should be considered, must I stay with the same brand (I assume they are good arrows because my Mentor is quite knowledgeable in archery and he had these with the bow) or, could I consider another brand with the same spine? (I really like the look of the PSE Radial X weave 300′s).

If I were to go with the PSE’s, is it the forum’s opinion that a lot of tuning would be involved to be ready to hunt. Not sure if I’m ready for that yet, and again, I know my mentor would assist me, but I don’t want to take him away from his hunting preparations.

I hope this is the right place to post. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Life span, of LIFELINES? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

So I haven’t used hang on stands for years. Only my climber(s) and ladder stands. Mainly because I felt unsafe in lock ons. Never used lifelines with the ladder stands, but I do stay attached from the ground to the top, and back again in my climbers.

But we’ve picked up some new acreage, and some of it is really tough to get to, especially hauling in ladder stands to put up. So I’m back in the hang on game with two full setups, including life lines.

How long are you guys leaving them out, and how long are you using them before replacing with a new one? The suggested total life time said two years, and never to leave them out for more than two months straight…which definitely is out of the question. For reference, I bought the HSS life lines.

New life for a classic – My SBXT project – pic heavy

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I picked up a SBXT a couple months ago cheap and decided i was going to give it a complete make over. The finish was flaking off so I figured why not try my first DYI riser refinish. After lots of research and , I decided to duracoat her coyote brown. I bought the $ 40 rattle can kit. I broke her down and stripped her with aircraft remover. Next I plugged all the threaded holes with dummy screws from ACE hardware then blasted her with aluminum oxide.

I built a backyard paint booth with some scrap wood and plastic I had. I made the hanger in a way where I could rotate the riser as I painted it.

My final prep step was washing her down with denatured alcohol to remove any lingering grease/oils/residue/etc. I blow dryed and let her sit for 30 minutes.

I went first with 2 thin coats of rustoleum self etching primer, 5 minutes between each coat and waited 30 minutes before top coat. Finally I went with 4 thin coats of duracoat, 5-10 minutes between each coat. I let the riser hang for 4 weeks before I ever touched her so I could reach a full cure or very close to it.

Preperation is EVERYTHING with painting. I assembled her tonight. I added new black limbs, DCA stab, Dead End string stop, Copper John Rut Wrecker sight, new idler wheel and new axle, new cam and new axle (cam and idler were chewed up on the edges), updated QCCs, black torqueless grip, and a harmonic stabilzer light. I blacked out all of the damper weights by removing the gold stickers (I had to paint the small ones).

I still need to add a black QAD HDX, the coyote brown/black shark tooth weave wrist sling, quiver mount and peep sight but she is looking good. She still has the Breathn threads that were on when I bought her so they will suffice for now. Hopefully I can get her tuned and rocking by next week, I cant wait to stick a deer with this bad girl.

Enjoy the pics.

Outdoor Life: for Hunting bow, no wrist sling or stabilizer -what do you think?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

In an article in the new Outdoor Life it describes how to pare down a bow’s accessories to the absolute bare necessities for hunting. They say get rid of a wrist sling because it’s for a better grip and don’t use a stabilizer. I’m pretty sure they are talking about stand hunters who normally don’t shoot past 30 yards. I’m sure a plains hunter who may take shots out to 70 yards or more may definitely want a long stabilizer.

Since I added a Bowstix Bipod to my bow (which I love), I have not put my 8" PSE stabilizer back on. The bow is just as accurate without it. The only reason I had the stabilizer, which was just really a dampener at that length, was to keep my wrist sling on.

I thought a wrist sling was so you didn’t drop your bow, not for a better grip. So which is correct, or is it for both those reasons?

What do you think about this article?

Nikon Customer Service: Now a Customer for Life

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

AT,

There are a lot of threads about binoculars, so here’s experience that is worth sharing.

I’ve had a pair of Nikon Monarchs for five seasons. I got the 12x56s for low light situations after tagging out unexpectedly on a doe that to this day I swear turned into a spike only after I shot her. I have used them hard, never casing them, and they work great in low-light tracking situations which seem to happen, well, always. They pretty much sit all the time either on my chest on a four-way strap harness or in the bottom of the Cat Quiver exposed all the bouncing, dust, and rain I get into. The eyepieces long since stopped staying in place once twisted out and I even dented in the side outside edge by the right objective by dropping them out of the tree stand at 12 feet. Oh yes, the objective lens caps had long since torn off and there were some scratches that I couldn’t get out no matter how carefully I polished.

Since a dented objective lens area is just waiting for water and fogging, I went on to the Nikon website, registered them, started a work order for the equipment by listing what needed to be done, pre-paid postage and handling with a credit card and sent them off. I was sure I was going to get a charge since I pre-authorized it. I got an e-mail telling me I would have to authorize $ 10 above the 20 or so I’d paid originally for shipping and handling, so I thought uh oh, here comes the first of many.

Today, a brand-new pair of 12 x 56s show up. I keep looking for the charges on the bill of lading. None. Oh yes, there’s a coupon for $ 10 off in the next Nikon purchase and a neat tripod attachment that I didn’t have before.

I don’t even want to take them out of the box they are so pretty. I hope everybody else can have the same experience.

JK
