Yup.... enjoyed the hell out of it with you and Nick today. Was cool trying different broadheads in these conditions and learning that the coolness/ look factor of the Black Hornet did not make up for my lack of confidence in shooting it in this wind. I would have never guessed the BH would be that inconsistent with multiple bows in these conditions. On the flipside the Ramcats and the Slick Trick Mags were money ...especially those Ramcats!

Hard to admit but the Ramcat was more consistent for me today. Believe me I was looking for every reason not to hand over $30...

Already thought about refilling it ... wait ran out early last week. Alfalfa would already be in there, if it consistently kept him around during the day. Watching my Coverts every feeding, when I have alfalfa in the feeders he comes at night especially after he's been shot.. ... He pretty much ignores the corn during the day when he eaten alfalfa at night. He has been eating corn during the day since it ran out last week according to my Covert. He's never been consistent this year so I'm hoping that as the natural food runs out he does. Actually I hope I kill him before that happens

I'm just trying to get him on my time..
