  1. Day 6 Plotwatcher Pro Review

    Yup. No flash is the reason. Maybe no motion sensor helps too.
  2. 99 out of 100....

    It's a real problem. I think it has increased rudeness in the few face-to-face interactions people still have. People are so rude when they comment on someone's tweet or youtube video...they forget that face-to-face interactions are different. When I grew up in the 70's and 80's my friends and I spent countless unsupervised hours in the woods and out in the streets playing games, throwing rocks and each other, etc. We had to work out our own problems and disputes. I think there was a natural tendency to build respect and politeness. If you were too rude, you got punched in the face. It hurts. It teaches you not to disrespect people. When you're just commenting on an internet post there are no physical consequences and you can't see how you've hurt someone by watching their body language and facial expressions. Society has become course.
  3. Worst experience ever

    Jeez man. Glad it worked out. Thanks for the nightmares I'm going to have tonight!
  4. Hunting with transition lenses?

    It takes a little getting used to...but then it's fine. In my case I just needed to make sure I was looking through the top half when I look through a scope. Just spend a few more hours at the range this off season till you get used to it. Its definitely better than not having a good prescription. Now I only hunt xbow and firearm. Not sure about how it would impact compound.
  5. Move to PA with handguns?

    Nothing. When transporting handguns in PA: 1. If you have a license to carry you can have them in your vehicle loaded. 2. If you don't have a license to carry the best way to do it is to have them in the trunk in a separate container from the ammo. There are some exceptions where you can have it in your passenger compartment unloaded but uncased if you are going to and from a shooting range or between two of your residences, but its better to just have them cased and unloaded in the trunk if you don't have a license to carry. Note: A license to carry is very easy to get. If you can pass a normal background check, you can get one. Download forms on internet. Fill out (you need 3 references). Go to county courthouse. Takes about 1 hour and you need to renew each 5 years.
  6. Saw this on another hunting forum. Looked like too much neck to me, but other guys say gravity will do that over time...
  7. The statute requires surrender of existing firearms rather than grandfathering in ones legally purchased. Hopefully some organization will challenge the constitutionality of that aspect at the very least. I'm not a constitutional lawyer, but I'd think this violates a few provisions. Even in eminent domain cases where the government just takes your property, it must compensate you.
  8. This is so weird!

    Yeah, I think it showed up on my twitter feed; someone else I follow tweeted about it.
  9. This is so weird!

    Pretty absurd...made me laugh though. See for yourself (just watch the first minute): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qd5-qspfKtc
  10. Assault weapons ban 2018

    So they can show how many weapons they didn't ban.

  12. I didn't say you don't have to practice. I said "as much". Please don't quote things out of context. I think you do need to practice. In fact, i think xbow haters often understate how much you need to (esp off hand and not under ideal range conditions). But, I do think you don't need to practice as much with a xbow than you do with a vertical to achieve the same level of proficiency.
  13. Are you "getting the itch" again? I can send you some formulas on how fast a deer can drop! Please.....lets not do that one again.
  14. I'm going to assume Rusty made this post in answer to a previous thread about how a xbow isn't a bow (nevada). I hunt with a xbow during archery season. My take is that, in the field (esp in a treestand), there are advantages and disadvantages to both. Compound you need to draw; xbow you don't. But, with a xbow, it's pretty clunky in a stand. You don't get the range of shots because of the limbs (esp behind the tree, etc.) that you can get with a compound. Also, if you have to shoot off-hand (which happens a lot in actual hunting), you're accuracy isn't that great. I don't think the ethical effective range is all that different either. I know guys scan sit at a bench in an open field and hit 60 yard shots with a xbow, but in the woods with obstructions, wind, a real animal, the effective range of a xbow is much closer to that of a compound. Let's call it a draw between the two in a treestand. The part where a xbow definitely excels vs. compound is practice. You don't need to practice nearly as much to become proficient. So, I agree overall a xbow is an easier weapon. If you're a xbow hater, that's fine. If it makes you feel better, here goes: YOU ARE BETTER! Now, can we all just get past this? Hunter numbers are declining, liberals are constantly trying to limit our hunting opportunities, can we just work together and get along?
