Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried put one of these on your bow? Its to hold the draw for those that can't pull a bow back and hold it

It's illegal to hunt with one. I have however seen them in use and if you are hadicapped it looked like a pretty cool devise for target shooting.

i would think if you have a crossbow permit, a draw lok would be permitted, but i dont know that as a fact

I guess I'm not certain either, but I don't think they are legal for hunting even for hadicapped persons.

Back in the day when I first started bowhunting one of the old guys in our group had one. He put his boot on the riser and starting pulling it back, crossbow style. Just about at full draw the riser slipped off his boot and that baby came launching up at him in a hurry! It caught him right in the chest and stopped - it was late season in Dec and he had plenty of clothes plus coveralls on. Couple inches higher though it would have got him in the neck - would not have been pretty, possibly fatal.

I know for a fact they are illegal if you are not handicapped don't know if you can with a crossbow permit. I was watching the outdoor channel a couple years ago and the owner of drawlock was filming a bear hunting show in northern minnesota and I think their was 3 or 4 people that used the drawlock to take a bear and it struck me as funny knowing they are illegal.

The guy's name is Jerry Goff, he's an ex boxer. You can tell he used to box by how slow his brain works when you have a conversation with him. I met him at a bear camp in Alberta about 5 years ago. He had his contraption with him and I get the benefit of using it if you are handicapped, but it was a monstrosity to shoot. You actually have to pull back with your bow arm and push with your release arm, as if you were squeezing the bow to shoot it. The opposite of normal form. It was heavy, unbalanced, and the recoil was huge. He also crippled and didn't recover 3 bears during his hunt. The show he eventually aired for that hunt was filled with amateur footage from me and the 3 guys I went with, because he couldn't kill anything. Maybe he has improved on the design since then, but you couldn't give me one of those things, even if they were legal.

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
