    Hunter Safety Systems

    Don’t know but I recently order a couple of Muddy Safety harnesses that came with carabiners.... maybe call the company and ask.... perhaps they may send you a couple. Good luck and stay safe

    Opinions on head on or quartering to shots

    Like most, I prefer broadside or quartering away shots. I’m just not confident with head-on or quartering to positions ....JMO ....

    Xbow question

    I’d rather put that $100 into another piece of equipment

    Xbow question

    I think you’re right. Ten Point biodegradable bolts are $10 for 6. I bought the small yellow jacket discharge bag on sale for $15 and had an older bolt...... comparatively, biodegradables seem like a rip off. However, I guess you could make the argument for the price of convenience.....

    Xbow question

    I keep a yellow jacket discharge bag and an older arrow in my SUV. It works for me.

    What should I do? Corn baiting question.

    Agree with PQreturn. I carry a small bag of corn to some of my spots and spread it before climbing into my stand. It works.
