New for the 09 season

Recommended Posts

Well with the talk of the season right around the corner made me wonder who bought a new bow for this year or did some mods to their bow for the upcoming season?

No new bow but i finally broke down and bought some nice much needed new sights. I got the Tru-ball Armortech 7 pin sight, so far Im happy with them and I should be for the price they were. I cant believe how much they want for some of the higher quality sights but Im sick of buying cheap sights and breaking something on them every year. Other than that my setup will be the same as it was last year.

I loved my last bow, but got a kick-butt deal on a brand spankin' new Hoyt and couldn't pass it up. So far, I really like this rig- a Hoyt AM35. I've got an HHA 3 pin slider, Kazaway drop away rest, new quiver and stabilizer... I'm shiny and new again! It will be fun to put it to the test this Sep.

Joe15 - have you shot that Mission much yet? I'm hoping to get a new bow next year and the Mission line-up looks like a lot of bow for the money - I just am not gonna be able to drop a grand on a setup. Only problem is the local archery shop doesn't carry them.

I'm trying to save my pennies for a new Bowtech Admiral that I can get a smoking good deal on and put my Liberty into retirement/backup department.

I put a QAD total containment drop away ultra rest on my bow. It's awesome. First arrow at game zipped my Magnus Stinger right through a turkey a month ago.

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
