    Venison Stir Fry

    I made some venison stir fry for lunch today. It's quick and easy. The hardest part is cutting the venison up in small pieces. Serve over rice or on its own. The stir fry mix is Sunbird brand.
  5. Thanks Culver, but because of the NYS Safe Act I can't have ammo shipped to me unless I have an FFL. Larry, I prefer the round nose because most of my hunting is in hardwoods and thick cedars. My friend's uncle told me years ago to only shoot the round nose bullets. He might be the best deer hunter I've ever met. He had a streak of shooting a buck in the Northern Zone that lasted 20 years I believe!! He had a stack of horns in the corner of his garage that my friends were all jealous of. He worked hard for every buck he shot and swore by the round nose Remingtons. I have shoot both the round and pointed bullets and didn't see much difference in accuracy at 100 yards. My shots are mostly less than 100 yards in the hardwoods. I am posting a picture of 2 Remington round nose bullets I recovered from a couple deer I shot with them. The bullet on the bottom was recovered from the 2nd doe when I killed 2 does with one shot ( and no I wasn't trying to kill both, the 2nd doe jumped behind the 1st as I was pulling the trigger). After passing thru the first doe it broke the opposite rib of the 2 doe and lodged between the rib and skin. Both does only traveled about 40-50 yards and died about 5 feet apart. The bullet on the top is from a big 10 point I shot. It broke thru ribs on both sides and lodged between the rib and skin. The buck only went about 20 yards. Anyway, that's why I use them. I know some guys hate them but everyone I know that uses them has had no complaints. Thanks
  6. I'm having a hard time finding some Remington Core-Lokt 30-06 180Gr ROUND NOSE bullets. Anyone know where you can buy them? I have only seen the 180 grain pointed tips in stores for sale. Thanks!!

    Kids Bow Thoughts

    I bought my 13 year old daughter a used pink Diamond Infinite Edge a couple years ago for around $225 shipped. She really likes it. The sight and rest that come on it are cheap. The rest is ok to start off but I replaced it with a whisker biscuit. I don't think many will argue that the whisker biscuit is the best rest you can put on a kids bow. I have used a biscuit on my hunting bow for the last 15 years. I would recommend a single pin sight for a kids bow. It will be a while before your son has to worry about shooting longer distances where more than one pin is needed. I picked up a used Mission Mennace bow for my 11 year old son a couple years ago for about $160 shipped. Mission still makes this bow I believe but they changed the name of it. It is a nice bow but the draw weight doesn't adjust down as low as the Infinite Edge. My son had a hard time pulling it back for a while. I put a whisker biscuit and a single pin sight on this bow as well. Once he was big enough to pull it back he has had a ton of fun shooting it. Overall I have been happy with both of these bows but I think I would say I like the Infinite Edge a little better. Here are a few things to keep in mind when getting your son started: 1. Figure out if he is left or right eye dominant. I'm right handed but left eye dominant. I shot right handed when I was younger but switched to shooting left handed about 20 years ago. I shoot so much better left handed. My kids both shoot left handed. My son is left eye dominant. I kind of pushed my daughter into shooting left handed just because I had an extra left handed sight and rest to put on her bow. Lol. 2. Be prepared that your son might get frustrated if he doesn't shoot well at first. Both of my kids have gotten frustrated and wanted to quit shooting. You aren't going to be shooting bullets out of a kids bow that has a low draw weight between 5-25 pounds. I gave my kids some old arrows I had that are pretty heavy and 2-3 inches too long. I realize these arrows aren't ideal for their set ups but they only shoot 10-15 yards. My kids draw lengths have changed every year sometimes more than once a year. When they quit growing I'll make them up some arrows that will better fit their draw lengths. My kids just shoot for fun, they have a long way to go before they are ready to bow hunt. Start your son out at 5 yards or so and keep it fun for him. My kids have a 2x2 foam target. They get bored shooting it after about 30 shots. Change it up, my kids have the most fun trying to shoot at a water bottle, soda can, and balloons. 3. Explain to your son how important good consistent form is to shooting a bow accurately. My kids struggle with this mostly because they are at that age where "they know everything" lol. Another thing to think about is if he will shoot fingers or with a release. My kids both shoot fingers. I know shooting fingers isn't a bad thing but I know my kids would shoot better if they tried a release. 4. Make sure your son knows that you should never draw a bow back unless there is an arrow on the string. The day I took my daughter to my local shop to get a new rest she dry fired her bow in the shop. Lol. We were lucky the draw weight was set pretty low that it didn't hurt the bow. I guess we were lucky she did it at the shop. The owner checked it over and had it fixed in less than 5 minutes. 5. Don't be afraid to ask for help. If you aren't a member on Archery Talk yet, check it out. Archery Talk is my favorite forum and has an unbelievable classified section. I have been a member there for about 10 years. I bought both of my kids bows there and I have bought 4-5 bows for myself there. I shoot left handed so it is impossible to find a good selection of left handed bows to try at local shops. The only new bow I ever bought was a new left over bow. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a used bow on Archery Talk. Check out the sellers feedback and you shouldn't have any problem. You should be able to find a used Infinite Edge there for between $225-$300 shipped and you will probably find one with an upgraded sight and rest. Good luck

    Tried my hand at making Venson Jerky

    Here's how I make mine: Venison Jerky 2lb venison cut into strips 1/2 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce 2 tsp Lawrys seasoned salt 2 tsp onion powder or salt 2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp black pepper 2 tsp white or brown sugar 1/2 tsp liquid smoke Marinate 6-8 hours Cook at 150 degrees for 5-6 hours. I have a smoker so I don't add the liquid smoke. I smoke my jerky using Jack Daniels Oak Chips.

    Where do you keep your bow while on stand?

    I used an EZ hanger for years but this year I started using a Third Hand Archery bow holder on my stand. It can be used on climbers or permanent stands. It is built like a tank and does a great job holding my bow much closer than the EZ hanger did. I have it adjusted so the bow leans forward (at about a 45 degree angle) with an arrow nocked. You have to pull the bow back towards you a few inches to slide it out of the holder. Here's a picture of my bow in the Third Hand bow holder.

    Facemask or face paint or nothing at all?

    Unless its very warm I always wear a mask.

    Last minute arrow rest change

    You can't go wrong with a biscuit for hunting. I bought the Pro model with year for my bow ONLY because I got it for $50 shipped on ebay. I don't think you need to spend the extra money on it. I have killed 8-10 deer with a biscuit that is about 15 years old. That one is now working fine on my sons bow.
