  1. What do you recommend for care / maintenance? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Anything over 12x12 is taxed and requires a permit in the town where my hunting property is located. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. My 13 year old son shot 3 deer with Hornady American 100 gr. factory ammo. None made it past 50 yards from POI, with one dropping in its tracks, and all were one shot kills. Worked very well for him.
  4. I'm not sure I have a picture of the 162 pounder - that was before cell phone cameras Did you get a weight on yours? Looks huge in that pic!
  5. A doe that weighs 180 lbs. field dressed is one huge doe! We have kept weight records for all of our deer going back to 1991 - the biggest doe shot on our property was 162 lbs. dressed ... and she was a tank! Congrats on the deer!

  7. Don't the deer have to be dead in order to test for CWD? Or have they developed a method to test for CWD in live animals?
  8. I stock up every time I’m down that way … which will be pretty often soon since I hunt in that area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. My cousin is the brewmaster at Steuben Brewing Company outside of Hammondsport. He has some excellent beers!
  10. What it tells me is if my arrow rest is set for proper center shot - not manufacturer recommended center shot, but the center shot of the bow / arrow combination. If you are hitting dead on at 20 but get progressively more to the left the farther you go back in distance, move the rest to the right (or vice versa) until you are hitting your target consistently in the left/right direction.
  11. I originally started out at 7 or 8 yards in my basement to make sure I had good bareshaft flight. I took it to 20 yards outside after that and was getting such good results that I stepped back to 30 yards, then 40 yards to see how things looked. I don't normally shoot bare shafts at 40 yards but was pleasantly surprised that it hit with fletched arrows at that distance. I'll only be shooting fletched arrows out of the Enkore now that everything is set up and tuned appropriately.
  12. I'm shooting a 60 lb. Enkore and have to agree with you that the tuning system is great. Took me about 5 shots to get a bareshaft flying straight out of the bow. And it was grouping well with my fletched arrows out to 40. It's not the smoothest drawing or quietest bow out there, but it sure shoots well for me!
  13. Tightspot quiver - been using them for several years now. Tuck in very tight to the bow (if you want it to), rock solid attachment point, and easy on/off if you like to take your quiver off when hunting. I have no complaints with mine!
  14. We’ve had a nesting pair living in our scotch pines behind our house for 2 years now. They had 4 chicks this year. No marshes or swamps within 5 miles of my home … only farm ponds. Cool birds! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New bow .

    Are you looking to stick with 50 lb. draw weight? What is your draw length?
  16. All are still available at the moment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. @WNY Bowhuntergot my 70lb Kure. Heck of a nice bow! I shot 70+ lbs for years but switched to 60 lbs a few years back. My shoulders have taken some damage over the years and, while I can still draw 70 pounds with ease, I think 60 lbs will be better for me in the long run.
