Interested in everyone’s solutions to keeping treestands and trail cameras secure.

PLEASE, keep the stupid comments to a minimum. You’re not the first person to say "Don’t put anything in the woods you aren’t prepared to lose", or "if someone wants it, they’ll find a way to take it". It’s not a profound idea. Everyone gets it. We’re interested in keeping the honest people honest.

Example:

On my stacking sticks, I replace the pointless round hitch pins with stainless steel nuts and bolts. The cheap-o stamped steel wrenches that come with your treestands are1/2", so that’s the size I used. Tighten them enough to where if you want my ladder, you need tools. Keep the wrenches in your backpack you use when hanging/retrieving stands, and throw a set in the console of your truck.

This worked so well that when some asshat came through the woods with bolt cutters, he got my stand (cable lock), but the whole section of 25" ladder was laying there next to the tree (apparently he needed my straps).

sign post rubs= broken tines?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

ok i have been getting some awesome footage on a camera i have placed over a good sized rub that gets hit every year, the tree is about a foot in diameter and has a fork 3 foot up and about 8 inches in diameter on that limb, ok well every buck in the area hits it all hours of the day and from what i have gathered, this is where alot of bucks break off tines and become busted up so to say im not saying this rub will have tines all over under but i will look but they absolutely look like they are fighting this tree and using all there might to knock it down no kidding. ok who else thinks this is why bucks get busted up besides fighting of course?

Offseason scouting…Google Earth Style -Long Post

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I’m not lucky enough to live near my hunting grounds. Hwever, I’m fortunate enough to have access to these KS farms. During the offseason I get a little bored and start to think about new approaches to some of the farms I get to hunt. I learn something new about hunting KS whitetails every season. Its very humbling, but love the challenge. Just curious to see what the AT group thinks. It never hurts for some new perspective.

Farm #1
GoogleEarth_Image.jpg
This farm doesnt have any cultivation other than the hay meadow. However, it does have some of the thickest cover around. There are usually soybeans to the north, east and west and wheat to the south. Most of the stand sights cant be seen from the rd due to the way the terrain sits.
-The Cedar Ladder, Double Bull, and Island stands are all great stands with any westerly wind. We normally see quite a few bucks on their feet during the rut from these stands. The fence row stand looked awesome, but we dont see the movement that you’d expect. There is a heavy plum thicket just to the east and the fence row runs to the west up the hill. I have seen some good deer movement from the Double bull and think the deer come from across the creek along that fenceline. I have also seen a lot of deer from the road to the north when scouting in the evening during the fall. Most of the deer seem to be near the jog in the fence that is north of the creek. The creek to the N/NW of the Fence Row stand is lined with cedars and very hard to see into. We dont usually go near that area.
-The 2 possible stand sits on the north end of the hay field always intrigue me. I think they would be great with a north wind. I have seen a lot of deer come from that area when hunting the Holy Miller Lite Stand. There is a nice plum thicket just west of the creek.
-Tom’s ladder produces lots of deer sighting, but I got busted more than once from deer approaching from the SE. I ended up giving up on that spot. I didnt want to ruin it.
-The High Bluff produced good deer sightings on a late December hunt, but I havent really been able to hunt there in Nov much. Seems like a good place with a S wind.
-I want to move the Hackberry some where near the fence corner to be able to hunt with a westerly wind.

I’d love to hear what everyone’s thoughts are on this farm.

Farm#2
GoogleEarth_Image 2.jpg

This farm is directly south of the first farm and is always planted in wheat eith a nice crp buffer along the creek, there is soybeans on the farm to the west. The east creek banks on the farm are very high and steep. I have seen some great bucks here, but have struggled finding good stands sights.

-The Gorilla is at the end of a small ridge the empties into the creek bed from a pocket in a wheat field. I didnt hang that stand until hunting the Double Bull a few times. I saw a few good bucks entering the field from this point. I do worry about deer that want to enter the field from here and have to travel the ridge to get to the field. the ridge is very narrow, only about 10 yds wide at the most. I have had some great bucks on camera at the Gorilla stand during the early fall. It is a pretty good stand with a south wind and overlooks a big opening in the creek bed. This is a low point in the creek as the I think the best way to access it is from the the pocket behind the farm house.

-Double Bull – it was just too tight quaters. The field pocket was only about 30yds wide. However, there was a decent draw to the east, but a west wind ruins it. I couldnt find a tree here so that when I moved spots and setup the Gorilla. I have never tried to set anything up anywhere to the W/NW of this spot.

-The Point was the first stand we hung on this farm. There is a small pond(dry the last 2 years) just the SE east. I saw some good deer traveling into the field from where we ending up hanging the strip. I had a great buck that I missed from the Point who was skirting the east edge of the timber. We no longer have the stand hung.

The Strip- it used to be plated but is now just about 2 acres of CRP. The creek bank here drops off over 30 ft. We hung this stand here after seeing quite a few deer travel through here when we were hunting the Point. However, it hasnt ever produced many sightings.

-LW2 is in an area where the creek bank is much more accessible and there are heavy trails along the timber edge. We were only able to hunt a few times, but havent had much luck.

I would like to hang something on the west side of the creek. I think I can get high enough that my scent may blow over the top of the creek bed. I do think many deer travel through the CRP buffer on the along the edge of the creek.

I have just struggled to find quality stand sights on this farm.

Thanks for the long read, I look forward to any feedback from you guys.

My first year of traditional Archery (Warning Wordy Post)

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

We are coming up on my the anniversary of my first year shooting traditional bows. So I thought I’d look back on my progress, what i did right, and what i did wrong. My goal is and has always been to hunt and take game with my recurve/longbow.

So back track to 12/25/2012 and after much research and input from the AT Trad forum I recieved my first recurve as a Christmas present. It was a 35 lb @28 Samick Journey AMO 64". I’m 6’3 265 pounds, and played tackle in HS football so i’m no small fry. I previously shot a 70lb compound with a 30" drawlength for over 10 years, including winter leagues, so was not a complete noob to shooting a bow.

So then i acquired some easton aluminum arrows full length w/ 125 grn points and feathers, a stringer, tab, glove and arm guard. It was the middle of winter so most of my initial shooting took place in my basement at 10 yards or less.

I acquired the book "Shooting the Stickbow" and used it do my intial setup of the bow, and as a reference for basic form.

So i head to the basement excited to setup the bow and take my first shot. I set brace height to the recommended range, put on my rug rest and tied on a knocking point.

My first draw with my 35# bow was tougher than i expected! My bow arm shook a little and i didn’t even make it to full draw. When i released i grazed the side of my face with my string hand… I actually recall thinking "am I going to be able to do this?" I was collapsing one shot, and plucking the next.

But I was DETERMINED, I shot, and shot, and shot some more. By the end of the first week i was aclimated to the 35lbs and could draw it back comfortably and even wondered if i should have gone for a 40# bow. I was capable of reaching full draw and holding there indefinitely (although i seldom did). I still had a floating anchor, and was collapsing, and my string hand was a mess too. I struggled sprayed arrows all over the target, even flat out missing the target at times even a point blank range. This continued for several weeks, I eventually changed to an elevated rest (hoyt stick-on) and my arrow flight improved immediately .vs. shooting off the shelf. I also built a new string for my bow from fast-flight (D97) and my bow shot flatter and quieter.

Then disaster struck… I was shooting in the basement and my upper limb hit the edge of the rafter and split.

I had gotten to a point where I felt like i wanted to continue my journey in trad archery, so I broke down and purchased a Hoyt Excel with 45# Black Max limbs. With the ILF adjustment i could get these limbs down near 40 lbs @28 and figured I could use them to gradually increase my poundage.

The Excel is a VERY good bow, and with a nap flipper rest I proceeded to work on my form. I started shooting outside and at distances up to 40 yards, and it uncovered many of my form flaws.. I figured out that my anchor was floating, and shot THOUSANDS of arrows at point blank focusing on nothing other than experimenting with different anchor positions and reaching a solid anchor. Next I figured out I was collapsing and that’s why my arrows kept going to left all the time. I learned on AT about back tension and drawing and holding with back muscles… Then I shot THOUSANDS of arrows trying to work on expanding through the shot and touching my shoulder as a secondary anchor. Then I worked on my string hand… I experimented with both a glove and tab. I experimented with 3 under and split. I settled on 3 under and a Rod Jenkin’s Safari Tuff Tab. I learned on AT about taking a deep hook and then just relaxing my string hand while maintaining back tension.

I had gradually over the summer increased the weight on my Excel from 42 lbs up to 48+ lbs on the fingers. I was handling the weight comfortably, and my form coming along.

I learned that coming from a compound you give up the complications of adjusting your bow in some respects, but you gain complications of tuning your arrows to the bow. Initially tuning was futile, worthless, pick an adjective. It wasn’t worth wasting time on because my form flaws made the arrows look weak one shot and stiff the next. By mid-summer my form stabilized to the point i could start tuning somewhat. I learned that the best way for me was to start with a bare shaft and a bunch of different point weights. I found that if i could take a bare shaft and by adjusting point weight, length and/or brace height, get it to fly straight without any wobble and impact the target fairly straight that was the best way to get a basic tune and know you have the RIGHT ARROW. From there, i’d shoot the bare shafts with fletched shafts and tweak brace height and nock height until they group together pefectly.

Aiming… This was my downfall. I had spent precious little time on aiming. There are a bunch of different ways to aim… Gapping at the bow, gapping at the target, instinctive, gap-stinctive, string walking, face walking, even a sight. I could tape a matchstick on my bow as a makeshift sight and hold a decent group, without it though I could be hit or miss (literally).

Summer was ending, i tuned broadheads with my bow, i even put a sight on my Excel and considered hunting with a sight. I considered hunting with an extra nock tied on at a 20 yard crawl. In the end, I decided I just wasn’t ready to hunt with my trad gear. I hadn’t developed the confidence and skill i needed to meet my own criteria to hunt game.

So i pulled out my compound bow and in 15 minutes i was ready for the season. I ended up killing 2 does and a buck with my compound this year all of them fell within 50 yards. Funny thing is all my deer were shot at very close range well inside 20 yards.

I HAVE NOT given up on my goal to convert completely to traditional gear, I have worked my way up to shooting a 50lb longbow and a 52lb recurve to test the waters. These are acutally more weight than that at my near 30" draw length. However, I’m finding that its just not enjoyable to shoot so much weight, and its much harder to maintain form, and difficult to shoot the quantity of arrows with these heavy bows.

So I’m settling in on bows around 45# at 28" which at my draw length are just under 50lbs. I have a 45# Samick Phantom coming for Christmas and also purchase a Trad tech Pinnacle riser (from Kegan in the Classifieds) to mate with my 45# BlackMax limbs. Oh, and on that note, I found that the Excel didn’t handle 50# very well unless you shoot a very heavy arrow. I plan to setup these bows to shoot the same arrow and use them for hunting and fun 3d. I may also pick up a set of cheap, low pound ILF training limbs for the pinnacle to continue working on form. If I had it to do over again, i may have gotten more materials like masters of the barebow and books/dvds on form and aiming earlier on or gotten a coach.

The AT forum has been a big help to me, and I’m still working towards my goal. Traditional archery has its own set of challenges, nothing is handed to you, and I think that’s why its so rewarding.
