    Dealing with wind (chill)

    Boot blankets and toe warmer packs are the key for me. I put one on top of the toes of my boot and one on the bottom side and secure them in place with a piece of velcro. Then the boot blankets go over the top. Also, change your socks when you get to your stand. Heavy wool is what works for me. Cold extremities are usually a sign that your core isn't warm enough. Hence the insulating windproof layering vest Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    I got a drake waterfowl windproof vest for Christmas that I will have to try my next time in the stand. It got good reviews everywhere I looked.

    ROOKIE MOVES/List them here!

    I shot a deer the other week with my muzzleloader and took the spent primer out of the gun and put it in my jacket pocket. When I went out the next time I had the gun loaded up and took the new primer out when I pulled the gun up into my stand. After I popped a primer in it, i reached in my pocket to grab something else and found a primer, luckily it was the old spent one, but I came very close to messing up that day's hunt by using an already spent primer in the gun.

    Took my nephew out "hunting" today

    I was figuring maybe 2 or 3 hours in the ground blind tops. The blind is 30 yards from a feeder, so he should see something in an afternoon sit from maybe 2 or 3 -5pm Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  6. My 8 year old nephew asked me awhile back if he could go hunting wiith me, but I'm not sure how well he would handle seeing a deer killed in person decided to take him to 6 Mile Run State Park in zone 14 where I shot a nice 7 pointer last year. It's only about 10 minutes from where they are in Somerset, so it was pretty convenient. We got him a suction cup bow and arrow set for Christmas and he had been practicing every day to prepare for today. He was really excited about going "hunting" all week so I picked up some camo face paint, a camo jacket, a pair of rubber boots, a pair of binos, etc. I didn't take any weapon today, we just went for a 3 hour walk in the woods and found plenty of deer sign. Located quite a few scrapes, a bunch of rubs, tracks and scat galore, deer trails, other hunters empty treestands, trail cameras, a crossbow bolt with broadhead, etc. He even found a couple of fawn deer skulls. We both had a great time and I was very pleasantly surprised that he didn't complain once about getting pricked by the occasional sticker bush or legs that were tired from walking. Probably could have stayed out longer but he needed to be back by 3:15pm. I'm going to try to bring him with me to the property that I hunt in zone 12 and maybe sit in the ground blind and watch some deer stop by and eat some corn .

    Crazy night in the woods...

    If you are using BH209, are you using a hot enough primer? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    CVA Muzzleloaders

    Last year cabelas in Hamburg had probably every model of cva on the shelf. Stainless, thumbhole, etc. Pretty much every configuration. Even if you don't want to buy it from them you can go there and shoulder them all and buy somewhere else Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Issue with crossbow pattern

    Try the bolts that your friend is using in his crossbow if they are also 20 inch. His might be a stiffer spine than yours Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
