“PINNCH” as Hogman Says #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

So it’s always amused me a little to hear Hogman say "Pinnch," "Peench," or however one spells it. All I know is what he says.

I’ve always liked the RCRrchery and Dudley videos. I’ve learned a lot from both of them, and unfortunately still don’t shoot nearly as good as them, but I can live with that.
Nice delivery (both in words and in arrows downrange) with both of them and seem like genuinely nice guys.

Anyway, on one of his videos I watched recently, Robert from RCRchery discusses different techniques one can use to fire a thumb release. It’s the one with a thumbnail photo of he holding up a release with a square-block thumb peg on it.

He mentions at one point that he’s now experimenting with trying to concentrate on "closing a circle" from his middle finger to his thumb to get the release to fire, vs. straight pulling, or curling the outer fingers, or relaxing your grip, and other ways, all of which I’ve tried to varying success so far.

I’d never heard of that technique before, and since I’ve been trying it this week after work, it’s helped my shooting quite a bit.

So if you struggle to fire a thumb release, you might want to give it a try. Just settle your shot, then concentrate on making the tip of your middle finger and your thumb get closer together. And ‘voila as they say in France somewhere.

My shots feel like a slight pinch rearward, going back an inch or so, between my finger tip and my thumb as the arrow releases and my elbow goes back slightly. And that’s it.

It’s like I was holding the nock between my fingers against a force, then letting it slip away towards the target. Kinda weird but cool and they’ve been flying straighter than ever lately just by trying this.

I have a good release set light enough that it doesn’t feel like I’m punching the trigger, but simply releasing an arrow with a slight movement that doesn’t adversely affect my sight picture.

And I hunt, too, so there’s times I need to simply release an arrow quickly – but as accurately as possible above everything else. And this would allow me to do that.

Maybe it’s not as good for 3D or spots, but it sure has helped me so far and I’m going to try it when I shoot them next, too.

And the Hogman reference? "PINNCH" …. ROGer! Maybe that’s why he says that.

If you try (or have already tried this technique, maybe it’s an old video) consider sharing how it worked – or did not – work out for you, and why.

Got deer? Cougars could help control herds, study says

Yeah, hunting wouldn’t work here. Let’s introduce a top of the food chain predator. It worked well with wolves in Minnesota.



Got deer? Cougars could help control herds, study says

By Cristina Corbin Published August 11, 2016

Big cats are the new big idea for reducing the deer population in the Northeast, where growing numbers of bucks and does wander through backyards and onto roads — where they pose a danger to themselves and humans.

A group of scientists is calling for re-introducing cougars into states like New York and New Jersey in an attempt to lower the exploding whitetail deer population. They say the 220-pound predators are a natural solution to a problem that causes 1.2 milllion car accidents per year, including 200 fatalities.

"Recolonization by large carnivores could provide an efficient solution to the problem of deer overabundance,” wrote study authors Laura Prugh, a wildlife scientist at the University of Washington; Sophie Gilbert, a wildlife ecologist at the University of Idaho and several colleagues.
The study, published in the journal Conservation Letters, argues the region could see fewer fatalities and save $ 2.13 billion over the course of 30 years if the prowling beasts were reintroduced into the wild.

While the authors acknowledge "large carnivore recolonization" could lead to attacks on humans, pets and livestock, the number of lives lost would be far less than the number of lives saved.

The eastern cougar was last seen in Maine in 1938, but the cats the study refers to are also known in other regions by names including catamount, panther, puma and mountain lion. The cats have been seen as far north as the Canadian Yukon and as far south as the Andes mountains of South America.

It’s not the first time scientists have thought way out of the box in an effort to cull the hoofed herds. Several locales, including New York communities of Ithaca, Staten Island and East Hampton, have spent taxpayer funds to tranquilize and sterilize deer.

Auto accidents attributed to deer also are blamed for $ 1.66 billion in damages and 29,000 injuries to people, making them the "most dangerous large mammal in North America to humans," according to the report.

The study asserts that a single cougar may kill 259 deer over a six-year lifespan.

The study, published last month, cites South Dakota — where the giant cats were imported — as a success story, noting their presence has dramatically reduced the number of deer-vehicle collisions.

The scientists argue that the Garden State, for instance, could save $ 2.4 million and avoid 24 injuries caused by deer-vehicle accidents annually. In New York, some $ 218 million could be saved each year and roughly 2,188 inuries and 16 deaths could be avoided if cougars prowled the land, they estimate.

The authors’ methodical approach analyzed certain factors, like starting deer density and final deer density. It also included projections for 17 other states, such as Maine, Missouri, Ohio, South Carolina and Wisconsin.

The idea of reintroducing cougars was roundly criticized Wednesday by one state official in New Jersey.

"It doesn’t have a leg to stand on," Larry Hajna, a spokesman for the state’s Department for Environmental Protection, said of the recommendation.

"We’re too densely populated," Hajna told FoxNews.com. "It makes absolutely no sense to introduce a top-line predator with so many people packed into a tight area."

The areas where deer are most problematic, Hajna noted, are places near homes with children and pets.

"I don’t understand the logic whatsoever. Cougars have been known to attack people," he said. "It seems the authors are sitting in an ivory tower out West."

In New Jersey, Hajna urged people to stop feeding the deers’ voracious appetites and advocated for greater use of what he called the community-based deer management program, which allows for hunters with specific training qualifications to kill more deer in certain areas.

"It takes some political will on the part of towns to implement this program," he said.
