It's pretty easy to set up yourself... Just get the AMS Retriever from Cabela's or Fleet Farm or something similar. I would suggest finding an older $50 bow from [YouNeedAuthorization] or [YouNeedAuthorization] though, You will prolly regret using your "good" bow for bowfishing. Then you dont have to mess with your set-up on your "good" bow

Ok thanks guys ... I have got older darton bow like an 01 I. I bought it from a buddy that I use for hunting. Would I be best off just buying a bow fishing only package rather than bolting on a reel to my darton?

If you want to save money you can bolt a reel on your bow. If anyone that you go with has a AMS retriever you will end up spending the money and buying one also. It all depends on how much you want to spend. There are three of us that go out together and all use the old wrap around reels and one day one guy shows up with a AMS retriever, well by the next weekend we all had retrievers.

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
