    Best winter gear ??

    I do 2 things, hunt and ski. Just putting this out there, the best winter gear made is Spyder. I wear a thin base layer under my jacket, does not matter if it's 10 below or 35. I am comfortable. I got Spyder gear about 25 years ago, and will never want or need a new one. The sticker price will stun you, but it's a lifetime investment.

    I am crushed

    Do you know what the issue was? Lack of penetration, or did the shot glance off to the side? I have successfully taken hard angle shots, but never this shot, not sure what I would do.

    For all you Rage fans!!!

    The deer I shoot must be very good at dieing. On Sunday I shot my 3rd deer of the season. 30 yards double lung broadside. 3 blade 1 and 1/8 inch fixed head. It fell over dead in 30 yards. I will never use any mechanical, because I never had an issue with a fixed.

    I am not suggesting or telling anyone to break the law. Just thinking, so long as the people know each other well, not a stranger, and both have FID cards, there is no record of who owned what long gun. Guy wants to buy friend's rifle. Who could ever know it was not his to begin with? Just saying.

    Thinking tomorrow morning will be good. Be safe if out in the wet and wind.

    All the deer I have ever shot with a 3 blade 1 1/8 fixed head fall over dead in 20 to 50 yards. I can shoot at sharp angles and never worry about penetration. Moving parts equal failing parts. I like excalibur crossbows, pump action slug guns, and bolt action rifles, ect.

    Excalibur Crossbows

    I bought my complete matrix 380 package from Walmart online 3 years ago. It came from a sporting goods shop. Walmart had the best price.

    Here comes the RAIN

    This is exactly correct, over night lows is the 30s in zone 8 are coming new few days, highs in the 50s, no rain!

    Excalibur Crossbows

    The sound of the excalibur is a non issue. At 30 yards the sound of the shot and impact are almost the same. Yes I know the speed of sound is about 1150 fps, and my bolt is 380 fps, this is all academic. Deer only reaction to my shot is dieing.

    Guns for deer hunting

    A savage 220 is a bolt action rifle that shoots slugs, effective out to 200 yards, maybe more. I have a mossburg pump action slug gun, haven't bothered since I got my excalibur 3 years ago.

    Anybody else had it with this weather?

    I like 2 seasons, Fall and Winter. Fall weather starts Friday, high 58 and sunny. Next week over night low in the low 40s in my zone 8 world. Hang on, it's coming!

    Excalibur Crossbows

    This is my 3rd season with the matrix 380, leupold crossbones scope, stock Diablo bolts, and 100 gr wasp drone 3 blade fixed heads. I would not trade this set up for anything. It's dead accurate, simple, and I can shoot length wise through a deer. You can't go wrong with excalibur, because there is nothing to go wrong! That should be their slogan. I have seen people selling complete set ups Here and the other site for 3 to 4 hundred, a great deal.

    Golden Triangle Whitetails

    Reading these stories makes me so glad I am not interested in these types of hunts. $4500 for a BS hunt! I spend a week at the Atlantis with my family for half that. Good luck and buyer beware!

    What to do with Illegal campers ?

    On a related note, I always thought that on the large WMAs, thousands of acres, someone could live and no one would ever know.

    Loin dinner

    This was the rarest part, it just melts when eaten. This rest was a classic medium rare.
