String/cables will make a big difference. Ive never used 60x but have heard a lot of good things about them. Threadz and Rogue strings are pretty popular for the 3D shooters right now. I know folks using them and they have held up well.

I only shoot BHs a month or so before season and not a lot. That is the norm unless I have changed bows, arrows or BHs and then I shoot and tune until they impact the same as my field points. The first year I elk hunted and started shooting BHs at longer distances, I shot them almost daily and made many changes.

This year I have a new bow and will be using new arrows and BHs so I anticipate shooting them earlier and more often. I bought four used McKenzie inserts at a 3D shoot yesterday just for this purpose.

Archery / Re: Shooting sticks to sight in your bow?
« on: May 04, 2018, 10:00:30 AM »
Im going to guess that it wont work. When a bow is fired it reacts in your hand as the arrow pushes forward and off the rest and away from the riser. By having a bow supported with something other than your hand the poi wont be the same.

Target archers routinely experiment with different lengths, weights and angles of stabilizers to achieve a steady and consistent hold. Nearly every significant change affects their poi. I would think shooting sticks would do the same.

Archery / Re: Single versus multi pin sight set-up

Its an up pin with two aiming references. The second reference isnt adjustable but the slider has two indicators that will give you the yardage of each reference. There are some videos on it, Spot Hogg is the only company I know of who is making this particular setup.

Finally came in this week and picked her up today. Second shot was a bare shaft bullet hole. Got it home and put a tape on it and shot a couple four inch groups at 55.5 yards. This bow is so easy to shoot it makes me look like I know what Im doing.

MBG and Spot Hogg are what I would consider the gold standard for sights. I have both and my current favorite is the Fast Eddie XL with the double pin.

Hunting Gear / Re: Carbon bow trade off?
« on: April 04, 2018, 11:18:33 AM »
I shot a carbon bow earlier this year when I was shopping for a new bow. My thought process was I could add weight where I wanted to. I shoot a heavier and longer bow better than a shorter lighter bow. Most folks will shoot a heavier bow better because it slows their pin float. Its really a trade off. I want to be as accurate as possible so the weight of my bow is the last place Im looking to cut weight.


Huh?


Your 2nd & 3rd sentence doesnt conflict your last sentence?  Maybe Im reading slow or something.


Yea, I agree a bow needs some weight.  Say two bows weigh 10 lbs fully loaded. One is mostly bow weight. To keep it there you need to use a light and short stabilizer. The lighter bow; you can get a longer stabilizer with a heavier dampener out front. It leans a bit to the side?  You can get an offset mount and not only have the weight up front, you can move it to the side some. Same 10 lbs. the one you can customize weight distribution for yourself is the more accurate bow for me.


At least Thats how I think of it. I have a new for me carbon Defiant 34, I need to put together. Only way for me to buy it was to seek out a used bow. My bow shop guy went hunting. We dial in the peep poisition when he gets back. After turkey for us.


The bow bare is so light.

Yep, messed that up :grin:  I shot a Carbon bow to compare to some aluminum bows I was considering. I thought with the carbon I would just add weight for balance as the aluminum bows held steadier. To drop $1500 on a bow and then use weights with stabilizers to make it feel closer to a less expensive bow was foolish. Does this make more sense?

String and cables unless you are just wanting a new bow.

Never thought they made a big difference. After playing around with target setups, Im convinced they absolutely make a big difference. Ive found a front stabilizer and side bar with and adjustable bracket can balance a bow and improve accuracy, especially at longer distances.

General Elk Hunting / Re: best bow?

Guarantee the elk or deer has no idea what your bow cost or whether its a top of the line or price point bow. Its all about the shooter being comfortable with his equipment. If you look at the ASA results in Foley, AL a PSE rep one his class with one of PSEs price point bows. He has a few of their 2018 top of the line target bows and felt comfortable shooting what he shot best.

My best advice for someone thinking about elk hunting, just do it. I was given this advice when I was a lot younger and didnt follow it. I would have loved to been in the mountains when I was younger, skinny and healthier. Youre never promised a tomorrow so just get out there at the first opportunity.
