    What’s everyone hoping for...

    Hoping to get youth tags as well. One for my 13 year old daughter and another for my 11 year old daughter. This will be the first hunt for younger if she gets drawn so we're all pretty excited to see what she gets. A 10 day coues hunt down south for the wife and a late coues hunt for me. Hoping for some good times ahead hunting with my family.

    The future of bowhunting is here my friends

    Nothing like the draw lock. This thing is basically an arrow clip for your bow. You just pull the bow back and it automatically loads an arrow to the string. I believe the clip holds 5 arrows. I don't think it has a locking feature but I could be wrong.
  3. Do you guys see this concept working for hunting purposes? Either way I want one. Looks like it would be a blast to shoot.

    San Carlos lake reports?

    I'm curious as well. Didn't the lake have another fish kill this past year?

    Hunt guidlines

    Look at all that red. Down 1560 tags. This makes no sense. Must be a typo because we all know the only thing the G$F cares about is making that money. This could damage their reputation as the money loving tag whores a lot of guys believe them to be. What in TARNATION is going on here!

    Shooting of a road in AZ on YouTube.

    Learn something new almost every day too bad every time I learn one thing I forget 3 others. This whole time I thought that if I can drive my truck on it and it was on a map it was conciderded a road. So the question I have now is how do I determine if a road has been maintained? Does it have to be bladed? I didn't shoot at a buck this last year because my dumb butt thought the little two track below me was a road and I couldn't shoot over it. Now I find out that a two track is not a road. SOB! I could have miss a great buck if I wasn't such an idiot!

    Super Bonus Point

    This will definitely will raise money but I don't think I'll be buying one. On the other hand I would like to see some Super Tags being made available to help raise even more money. Sticking with the Super theme they could call it the Super Education Draw. Each unit will have one year long rifle deer tag available in this special draw. $10 nonrefundable Super Tag application fee per unit you apply for with a limit 5 choices. So if you only put in for 1 unit it's $10 if you do all 5 it's $50. Basically the same as the current drawing system which should make this an easy addition to the current draw system.

    It's amazing the quality phones are capable of producing now days. I still lean towards an actual small point and shoot over a phone when it comes to digiscoping but either will work great. The way you mount the camera to the scope is just as or even more important than the type of camera. Pretty much all modern cameras and phones produce excellent image quality but without a good scope mounting your pic/video quality will more than likely suffer. A good quality mounting system worked wonders for me when it came down to quality of the pics and video I was getting.

    2018 Rutting Coues Video

    I got between 70-100 yards from a handful of bucks unfortunately my furthest shooting distance was 60 yards. If I remember correctly the buck you said left the country I was able to get 72 yards from and 45 yards from his doe. His doe is the one that busted me. Heck yeah good to hear! Glad you like them.
