    Archery lessons?

    Come on guys, give me some credit, I've had a bow for a few years, nothing special. I got drawn for archery bull and decided I need to step it up a notch and do some serious practice. I went and got a new bow and have started shooting pretty much every day in my back yard. My problem is I feel like I pull to the left, a lot. I just don't want to be teaching myself something wrong. I'm in Mesa
  2. Getting into archery, an early archery bull tag will do that. Just kind of looking for tips on what I am doing right or wrong. Anybody know someone that can help me out. I just purchased a bow and have been shooting in my backyard.

    3C early archery Guide??

    After years of not getting drawn, I finally have a tag. I actually switched from early rifle to archery. I'm a little nervous about the whole archery thing. Because of this I am looking into the possibility of hiring a guide. Anybody have someone they recommend? Anyone to avoid? A buddy told me a couple, I just want to see what you guys say? I am excited for this fall. But I feel like I need to determine quickly to do this on my own or with a guide.

    ***SOLD***

    Im looking for a new family tent. How old is it? I found a 10x10 online that says it fits 6. Would that be what this is stated as? How long does it take to set up?

    Hunting Dilemma

    Im not really sure what my budget is. I need to look into prices and see what I am willing to pay. More then likely I would just stay local. Of course I do have some family in southern Alberta. I would lean toward mt. lion. I was checking out guiding services for here.

    Hunting Dilemma

    I reached a milestone age and decided to give myself a nice hunt. Will probably go for a guide. What would you do? I am debating between a black bear hunt or mt lion. I even think, what about a coues deer on the res? That might be my last choice. I'll post the same thread in the mt lion section. I have not gotten either one.

    17 bonus pts...what to do?

    I agree with this. Again I don't necessarily care about size, but a 350 bull would be nice. I've looked at the odds a little, but is it really easier to get drawn for Archery then rifle? I did the early rifle bull. So, are you guys saying if I did the early archery bull I would have a better chance of getting drawn? Two years ago I bought a used bow from a friend to try going after deer when I didn't get drawn. Anyways, I got a lot of time to sit and daydream about drawing a tag.
  11. So as of this draw I have 17 bonus points. I usually just hunt with family. But the last few years I keep thinking this is my year. Don't we all! Here is my problem. IF and thats is a big IF I get drawn do I go for a guide. To me hunting is not about the size of the animal but about the whole adventure. But I feel like a once in a lifetime hunt I should go for size. Once I get drawn I will go back to putting in for cow hunts for my second choice, with a trophy hunt/late bull hunt as a first choice just in case I get lucky. Next question: How do you determine which guide? P.S I put in for 23 north.
  12. That looks good, but what looks better is the 40 behind it. Are you on mud? As my name says I have an 87 FJ60.

    My CC got hit

    Mine got hit yesterday on the 11th for $104, I would assume that was for my whole group of 3 tags. I was also charged $22 back in June.

    Two down plus a question

    My brother and I went out, 30 mins into it and we find pigs. Two quick shots, two pigs down. After we get to them we hear some screaming. We think maybe one is wounded. Turns out it's a baby. This is the second time it has happened to us. The first time a few years ago the baby wouldn't come close to us and looked older. This time the baby would come right up to us. If we scratched the ground it would come running to us. It looked days old, still had an umbilical cord, well it looked like one dragging. We both shot boars so its mom was somewhere. We thought about picking it up and taking it to GF and see what they would do. In the end we left it there and never touched it, hoping its mom would find it. What would you have done? It was a cute little guy.
  15. I posted this in the optics section then thought more people would see it here. I'm going to buy a range finder here soon and would like some of your opinions. I don't quite want to spend the money on the Leica so I am debating between the Nikon Monarch Gold 1200 and the Nikon RifleHunter 1000. Differences that I see are: Gold - 7x mag, 1200 yards, - reviews state it is well built RH - 6x, 1000 yards, - about $100 cheaper. The major difference is the RH has the angle compensator. Is this just fluff? Do I get anymore out of the Gold for my hundred dollars? Your opinions please Sean
