    Ugh...LH or RH?

    I decided to start over with archery. I never received much instruction. Today, I did a lesson with an archery coach. She never assumes anything. She had me shoot a LH and RH recurve. I am right handed, left eye dominate. My right eye is very weak...it has a weak eye muscle which gets better if...

    Have any Tyvek?

    Does anyone have any spare Tyvek? I had a full sheet of polycryo to make my ground sheet for my new tent BA Copper Spur 2UL. Unfortunately, the full size polycryo was too narrow by 12\". I need a piece of Tyvek 90\"x52\". I would pay for postage. If everyone is busy, I can wait on it until...

    How to Hunt a Bench?

    I have a Bench that holds elk for all of September. It rarely has hunters because access is hell. 80% of the approaches to the bench are extremely steep with talus (rock field) crossings. The only easy slope access is a very long trek, but still has some talus to cross. The fastest access is...

    Fletching glue

    I damaged my fastset glue\'s applicator, so I had to use other glue in my archery box that is probably 3 years old: Bohning fletch-tite platinum It is horrible. It flows like water and has way too big a hole in the applicator. At least they are only practice arrows where I was experimenting...

    Transmission Issue?

    I recently did a service check for my 1998 Honda Civic Hatchback manual transmission with 176,000 miles. I told the shop about a hard to get into reverse issue and an occasional shuddering while driving. If you ever had a car with a carburetor, it acts a little like a stuck carburetor which I...

    Archery: Downhill leg on steep slopes

    Today, I shot at a walking range with very steep slopes. Most of the ground was dirt with pea gravel. Slopes were 15-25 degrees. Fortunately, my hunting area does not have pea gravel on the ground. I had a lot of trouble keeping my downhill foot in place when I drew my bow back. I don\'t...

    Hunting in the Rain

    Since I have no tracking experience, I have wondered if I should hunt when it is raining? I have hunted in morning and evening rain. My advanced bowhunting class did a mock blood trail for us to follow. Last season, an elk hunting veteran showed me in the woods how to look around to find...

    BA Copper Spur UL2

    Anyone have the BA Copper Spur UL2? Most reviews appear to be favorable. The negatives point to an issue in heavy wind. I may be doing more spike camps in September. For 4 years, I have used a BA Fly Creek UL2. Great tent, however, my older body doesn\'t like the door placement. Despite doing...

    Stashing Spike Camp Gear

    I am considering stashing some spike camping gear in August. How do you stash your gear? This is gear only, such as, tent, sleeping pad, stove and small cooking pot. It will be there up to 6 weeks. At my base camp, squirrels have a bad habit of chewing my tent\'s webbing. How do you protect...

    I need a lot of the basic information of hunting mule deer in the CO mountains. I only started 2 years ago. I already knew where the deer were in my deer unit from previous backpacking trips into that Wilderness area. Spot and stalk worked for that deer unit. 2 yearlings came through my camp...

    Scouting Trip Reports

    I was wondering if everyone would care to share summer scouting trip reports and photos as the summer progresses? There are some members who do not have the luxury of summer scouting trips. You do not need to give your unit. I personally would not since non-members can search this site. Here is...
