Default Re: bow hunters

sry to dig up an old post but i was about to make thread to see who all bow hunts and waht they use. i am looking for some new fixed blade broad heads and seeing what other people use. right now i am using 100 gr Anderson have worked great for many of deer but i am down to 3 left and i cant find them anywhere. and i have to put my 2cents in about the whisker biscuit, they are the 2nd worse things to happen to archery. TOO Freaking LOUD, isnt it enough to have to worry about a deer hearing your draw to have to worry about another loud things to spook them.

I have used the NAP Thundderhead fixed blades. They are an awesome fixed blade. I agree with you about the whisker biscuit, Im not a fan of them, too loud.

yea that is what i was thinking about because from what i understand NAP now owns Anderson but i didn't know if the quality has changed because if i remember correctly the price per three took quite a hit when they started calling them NAPs. but yea i just to day finally changed from aluminum arrows and got some easton AXIS FMJ and cant wait to see how they shoot, my father started running them last year and he says they are awesome but he finally took the leap to mechanical broad heads i dont know if i am ready for that or not. lol

I know the Thunderheads have been around for many years and they have always been solid performers. not much has changed on them since they came out and they tend to be much cheaper than other broadheads.

It's just harder in general to do it unless your luck enough to know sone rich Lord who has a shit load of land and a palet for venison!
FYI, we also need to get a license here, as well as permission from land owners (depending on if you want to go for some bigger game or if you are just going to stay on state land. I've found the bigger stuff is on private land, lol).

I won't be able to bow hunt this year until the general rifle season starts, and then I will have to start wearing orange. I still try to go out and shoot at least once a week so I'm not out of practice.

i'm really a matthews man, had a z-max a few years back, sold it with hopes of a new one, then got laid off, so i picked up a high country solo cam and have been rockin it for the last few years, not bad, 80 lbs, 3-d rover rest, tru glo 5 pin fiber optic sights, scott release, and carbon express arrows with trophy ridge/rocket 2 1/2 " expandables
so far i've shot 5 deer and a turkey with the rockets, nothing has gone further than 20 yards, a 2 1/2" hole puts em down !!!!!
i also hunt out of a summit open shot deluxe climber < light and rock solid, best stand i've ever owned

now that i should be done building the quads, and got the ranger, i'll start savin for a new matthews Z7 extreme !!!!!

btw........i'm almost 48, been shootin stick and string since i was 12

heres last seasons steaks..............

having a family farm FTMFW...and our bow deer season stops when they start all the gun hunting and it restarts for about 2 weeks, so I never have to wear orange while bow hunting
