  1. I too recently started bowhunting and was steered toward John Dudley's videos at Nock On Archery. He has some awesome step by step tutorials on YouTube for form that really helped me progress quickly. I think he called them "weekly lessons" or something along those lines. He also has some basic 101 videos. I shot a ton from Spring - through hunting season to get comfortable. Good luck!
  2. I asked my Euro guy to use an old piece of barnwood for a mount he did for me and I think it came out pretty cool, if you like the rustic sort of thing. He said a lot of customers have been requesting it after he showed it around.
  3. Where's my Vig ?!?! I know you read the fine print in our contract...
  4. Considering the items people will actually spend money on these days, you're likely to have a successful venture!
  5. Lint is a good lightwieght tool to have in the arsenal to assist with fire starting.
  6. We have some serious lookers on all of the Capital District news channels currently!!! Watching the news more than ever, even though I stopped listening months ago ....
  7. There is nothing better than in-person training (if done by the right qualified people) for firearms safety. If given the choice, I would rather have a required in-person firearms safety course than an in-person hunter course. I know firearms safety is a large part of the hunter course, but there is much to be learned when handling a firearm, especially to someone who has never even seen one.
  8. I wonder about this as well...I have a x-bow and compound and use each as the law dictates depending on were I am hunting. As someone who transitioned from x-bow to compound in the last couple years, I find the compound much more versatile when setting up stands and such. My x-bow shoots awesome and is deadly, but it's cumbersome in a tree when its game time imho. But its hard to discredit all of the + sides of using the x-bow vs compound.
  9. So Trump was chastised for this way of thinking several months ago and now Andy will be hailed a hero for saving so many businesses on the brink....They basically said the same thing. I'm sorry, but this is hypocrisy at its worst. I know a bunch of people who have lost everything and for Andy to say this is a huge slap in their face. I know this because that's what they told me.
  10. Nice, Love a good Euro. That mount is slick too, assuming it tilts?
  11. Definitely keeping at it! I've been in parties where we've approached the 40'' mark, just wasn't my turn in the rotation. When I'm with my brothers and close friends, we often rotate flags so we can all catch something. A buddy catching a slammer on my rig is just as enjoyable as me as far as I'm concerned. Pay it forward as they say. I know about Durant, but my buddies always want to fish different water when we head up that way. Beautiful Northern!
  12. While I am new to the game, my brother has researched extensively and is assisting me along the way. He echoes Culver's advice with Minnesota Trapline and also has had good experiences with Hoosier.
  13. I never fished Oneida, should have when i lived in Oswego. I usually headed North for Northerns or to Otisco for trout/tigers. Still trying to catch a tiger, its bucket list fish of mine as is a 40" Northern.
  14. Any diehards on here? I would hardly call myself a diehard, but icefishing is a close second to deer hunting for me. I love getting together with a few friends and brothers fishing with tipups and BS'ing all day. There is usually some gambling involved - biggest fish, most fish, etc. that by all accounts, the winner spends on rounds for all after a good day on the ice.
