Same today in 7A-only 4 hr sit  NADT (not a dam thing), excluding a black squirrel 

I must have missed your earlier posts. Noticed you were a Phoenixer as well. I have not heard to many shots the last few days but have not been out as I'm tagged out in 7A until Monday.

had a good sit last night. Really got to test my new vortex bino's in some low light conditions in the pines. For the black friday sale of $128 shipped these diamonbacks are impressive. Of course anything is nice compared to my old nikon 10x32's. I am going to get a harness for sure though.

Hey Belo, I've been in the market for a new pair of binos, what power are the Vortex binos you got?

I'm not thrilled that these are made in china, not because they're lacking in quality from what I've experienced so far, but because I really do try to buy american when i can. But they were $128 on black friday and I couldn't resist. I am used to my small light nikons that were like 10oz, and these are 20 something. But the trade off in weight and size is worth it I think, especially with the harness. I think I'm most likely to really see the benefits turkey hunting with a much larger FOV and better clarity, so I will be able to get eyes on target much quicker. Something I've struggled with before.

I love my vortex 10 x 32's compact, but clear and great field of view.

Wow, great price! I bought those same binos two years ago and they were about double that price. Let us know how you like the harness. I bought a harness, but it seems cumbersome with everything else I wear during cold weather so I haven't really used mine.

love this harness.  So light and does not inhibit movement at all.  Easy on off. And holds binos secure to chest.  No issue shooting a bow or gun with it on.  I got rid a an FHF harness in favor of this.  So much easier.   All elastic so no need to adjust for heavy or no layers either.

I like the look of that. That thing compared to mine is like a string bikini compared to overalls!

These are nice.

I usually sling binocs under one arm and use a standard neoprene neck strap; but when you want a harness these beat the traditional wide strap harnesses.


Give it a name, apply human sentiment, and its no longer a wild animal its a Disney character.

Adding insult to injury, they avoided me in the huntable area (no fur seen), but one was back feeding in the neighbor's garden when I got home!  

There is also deer poop on my front walkway.  Fantastic.

My son and I hunted the woods in the am and saw zip. Deer seem to be in the hayfields now. Saw spike and a doe same one from yesterday after lunch in field below my house. My son decided to do some still hunting in the hayfields along the edges and saw 4 deer and sneaked to within 50 yards of this lil buck. Not so easy with the crunchy ground!IMG_0550.jpeg

      The procedure below to carry the bow is detailed below:
      You have to use a cotton towel or something similar. You have to wrap it around the bowstring. Doing so ensures that it will not cause an injury with the bowstring coming in contact with your body. It will not be that sharp either. Once you cover the bowstring with the towel, you have to wear it like a sling. So that it will not fall away from your body. The best way to cover the bowstring is to use a large enough towel. You can wrap it around twice as well. When making a sling out of the cotton towel, you have to ensure that you tighten it to get a snug fit. In that case, it will not slip away. Consequently, it will remain in place. When using this technique to carry a bow on your back, it is essential to practice before going in the wilderness. Only when you can move briskly and without noise using the scanning mechanism should you go ahead with it. To remove the bow, you have to hold it at the bottom. After that, you have to slip it over your head as well as arm. Doing so ensures that you can remove it quickly. When trying to focus on a prey, you need to remove the bow quickly. The technique for removal that we have highlighted above can certainly help you do so.

      Just want to relay an experience I had this weekend regarding hunting regulations and other hunters.
      I've had several  hunter's tell me last weekend(10/12/2020) that muzzleloader was open, it is not. I also had two other hunters last weekend confront me as to why my son was carrying around a rifle and hunting deer. I calmly explained the youth weekend and the rules around it. After that everything was cool and we continued our hunt.
      I know at the end of the day we're all trying to participate in a sport we love and maybe harvest some game. My thought is to just make sure you're up on your local hunting regulations. Not just so you are within the rules, but also so you can assert your right to be where you are, hunting the way you're hunting.
      I know when I have been operating outside of the regulations I have appreciated a person respectfully correcting my ignorance and I try to pay it forward by being informed and respectfully educating when required.
      Thanks for listening, off my SB...

      Hello,
      I am in the process of purchasing my first rifle to go hunting deer for the first time.  However, I have received contradicting information regarding the types of rifles that are legal.  Based on what I have read, it appears that I am able to use a bolt-action rifle with a pistol grip and a detachable magazine which holds 10 rounds.  However, I have been told that this is not the case. I can't seem to find where this is stated.  Can any one here provide me with some insight into this? I'd really appreciate it.
      Thanks in Advanced,
      Alfredo
