Name your bow???

15 posts in this topic

How many people out there name their bow? I've named all of my bows- a few were named Joey, Golden Boy, The Picklefork, and my newest bow is named Titus. Just curious if I'm the only crazy one or if some of you out there give your bow a name?

They must feel neglected. Probably some inferiority complex brewing there. smile

Over the weekend I named my two week old 3 piece takedown Longbow "Ka-Boom" because that's the noise it made when the riser broke in half when I drew it back!!!

Now it's a four piece bow;(

Luckily no one, particularly me, was hurt. But what an awful sound.

That happened to me about 20 years ago when my York recurve snapped on me...but I named that one "#@% Dam-It"...'cause that's what I said when the upper limb smacked me right in the mouth!

My bow does not have a name but my name lee harvey came from some other hunters who call me that when I have my bow in my hands.

They believe that I hit everything I shoot at but I have missed a time or two.

We just don't tell them that.

I hear ya, I bit my lip as to not cuss out loud as my buddies 5 year old Son was standing right next to me. He thought it was the funniest thing that it snapped in half, talk about adding insult to injury!!!

Thankfully the guy that built it has a great warranty, his daughter was at the shoot later, brought the bow back to her dad that same day and he is getting a new bow built up right away.

Never know what wood is going to do. My lesson learned was I will be bringing a backup bow to Colorado for Elk this fall, just in case.

"The Provider" also the name of my 7mm mag. might sound cocky, but if they could talk! more or less an inside joke with my brothers and the old man!!

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
