7 weeks to get my mount back…how long does your taxi take?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Got the call today, mine is all ready to go pick up. I hear these horror stories about guys waiting years to get their mounts back, IF they even get them back in some cases. It is crazy. I only bring it up because my Taxi was chatting with me today about helping out other Taxidermists, trying to get them caught up when they had stuff 18 months and beyond still sitting on the shelf undone. He says it is a huge problem in his industry & I told him "I know, I read about it on my hunting forums very often."

He no longer helps out other Taxidermists, as he’s got his business so built up it keeps him busy all year long now. Said he does about 300 mounts a year, and he works all by himself.

He says he can’t understand why these guys can’t get their work out in a timely manner. Procrastination, not very organized, OR they don’t know what they are doing. I don’t know, but I’m happy that my Taxi does very timely work.

How long before we see a $3000 mainline bow?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I can’t imagine it will be more than a few years. We are already ticking around two grand on several, if they move to carbon on some of the flagship target bows, I can see it happening.

I bought a new Switchback from a dealer back when they first came out for $ 575, to me I don’t see twice as much improvement for twice as much price in new bows today.

I’m wondering I hear a lot of stories with people saying it took a few years. Its going to be my first year bow hunting and I’m hoping to get a kill this year with it.

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.

Lesson Learned the Hard Way **Long Read**

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

One of the owners for the company I work for sent me this in an email…ENJOY!

Author Unknown — probably for good reason.

The Plan
I had this idea I was going to rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it corn for a couple of weeks and then kill it and eat it.

The Execution
The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I’d noticed they congregated at my cattle feeder and didn’t seem afraid of me (a bold one would sometimes come up and sniff the feedbags while I was in the back of the truck). I figured it wouldn’t be difficult to rope one; toss a bag over its head to calm it down, hog tie it and transport it home. So, I filled the cattle feeder and hid at the far end with my rope. The cattle, having seen the roping thing before, stayed well back. They were not having any of it.

After about 20 minutes, three deer appeared. I picked out a likely looking one, stepped out and threw my rope around it. The deer just stood there and stared at me. I wrapped the rope around my waist and twisted the end so I would have a good hold. The deer still just watched me, but you could tell it was mildly concerned about the whole rope situation.

I took a step toward it … it took a step away. I put a little tension on the rope. It was then the deer decided to give me an "education."

The Education
The first thing I learned is while deer may look at you funny while you rope them, they don’t like it when you tug on that rope – the deer EXPLODED!

The second thing I learned is that, pound for pound, a deer is a LOT stronger than a cow or a colt. A cow or a colt in that weight range I could fight down with a rope and with some dignity. But a deer – no chance! It ran, bucked and twisted and pulled. There was no controlling it and certainly no getting close to it. As it jerked me off my feet and started dragging me across the ground, it occurred to me my idea wasn’t working out nearly as good as I’d planned.

The only upside is that deer don’t have the stamina of other animals. A brief 10 minutes later, it was tired and not nearly as quick to jerk me off my feet when I tried to get up. It took me a few minutes to realize this since I was mostly blinded by the blood flowing from the big gash in my head. At that point, I had lost my taste for corn-fed venison. I just wanted to get that devil creature off my rope.

That gash and several large knots showed how I’d cleverly arrested the deer’s momentum by bracing my head against several large rocks as it dragged me across the ground. Upon reflection, I realized I shared some tiny amount of responsibility for the situation we were in. I didn’t want the deer to drag the rope off and maybe suffer a slow death, so I managed to line it up in between my truck and the feeder. I’d set a little trap there beforehand – a kind of squeeze chute. As I got the deer in there and moved closer so I could get my rope back, the deer administered the next step in my "education."

Did you know that deer bite? They do! I never in a million years would have thought a deer would bite somebody, so I was very surprised when I reached to grab the rope and the deer grabbed hold of my wrist. Now when a deer bites you, it doesn’t just bite and let go like a horse. A deer bites you and shakes its head – almost like a pit bull.

The proper thing would probably have been to freeze and draw back slowly – I tried screaming and shaking instead. My method was ineffective. It seemed like the deer bit and shook me for several minutes – but it was likely only several seconds.

I, being smarter than a deer (though you may be questioning that claim by now), decided to try and trick it.

While I kept it busy tearing the crap out of my right arm, I reached up with my left hand and pulled the rope loose. That was when I got my final lesson in deer behavior that day. Deer will rear up and strike at you with their front hooves, which are surprisingly sharp. When a horse does this, the best thing is to make a loud noise and move aggressively toward the animal. That will normally cause them to back down so you can escape.

However, this was a deer and such trickery would not work. In the space of a millisecond, I revised my strategy. I screamed like a woman and tried to turn and run.

Now the reason you don’t try to turn and run away from a horse is there is a good chance it will paw you in the head. Maybe deer aren’t so different from horses after all, other than being twice as strong and three times as evil. The instant I turned, the deer hit me in the back of the head and knocked me down.

Now, when a deer knocks you down, it does not immediately leave. Maybe it doesn’t recognize the danger has passed. Instead, the deer pawed my back and jumped up and down on me while I lay there, crying like a little girl and covering my head.

I finally managed to crawl under the truck and the deer went away. I then understood why people hunt deer with rifles instead of roping them. At least a firearm makes them somewhat equal to their prey!

How long does your string last?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

So the string on my old Browning is fraying…again. I got the bow as a loaner and it came with a string that was kind frayed already, so I bought a new string at the local shop and had it restrung. That was just in early December last year. Now its just April and its started fraying again.

The part where it frays is about 6 inches away from the serving area, so I’m pretty sure its not rubbing on anything. The string came waxed, and I diligently applied wax to it every 3 weeks. The only things I changed on the string would be to increase the brace height from 7.75 to 9 inches. This is where the bow seems to be quietest. Heck, with this brace height, its even quieter now than when I put in those little wooly puffs!

Anyways, my question is…how often do you guys have to change strings due to fraying? I’ve unstrung the bow now (I usually leave it strung and sitting horizontally in a rack on the wall), but if I were to string it, would the string snap? Would it snap whilst shooting?

Long time away

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

So it has been a while since I have posted. I was at an awesome military training school learning a lot of really cool things. I was able to shoot over 2000 rounds with an M4 and M9. Shooting full auto was quite a treat and really shows how awesome an AR can be.

I just checked into a new command and will be deploying to Bahrain for 6 months starting July 1st which basically means I lost a hunting season. My crossbow budget is effectively 0 dollars now.

I did purchase a Thunderbeast 30p-1 suppressor and have a custom 300 blackout and 223 being built as we speak. I knew that training would cost me big time.

I am still reading and I see the same old stuff is happening. Pin buying and selling, geekster rocking out arrow testing and Moon doing his shorty thing. Oh let’s not forget Wyvern rocking out bows with his giveaway and Swamp doing some crazy stuff way up North.

I will be reading and will try to post but I am a not depressed, but knowing I can’t buy or test crossbow stuff the next 6 months is keeping off the forum. I look forward to reading great reviews and seeing some awesome trophies this year.

Who would like the rack of guns we had at the training. 62 M4s on the rack fully auto capable, wonder how that is worth.

Just to let everyone know I now have some awesome green camo now instead of that awful blue crap.
