David i get emails from the forest service about proposed burn sites. But i figured out this year that they really do a lot more burning than what I'm told about. The Montgomery county fire marshals website had a map up of all the places being burned, at least in the county. There was a large portion being roasted

I stole this from a friend who shot it in Paris. I thought it was a fitting photo for here.

Took a picture of a spiral wrap flu-flu. No jig required. Just contact cememt and 2 full length uncut feathers per arrow.

Cheaper than traditional 6 fletch flu flus.



Edit: I am concerned about them getting hung up in a tree though. Figure best to make sure they are on lower limbs or on the trunk when using these.

Truflight sells some specifically for spiral wrap. They have less foam attached to the quill so they are easier to wrap. But when I started out, I used plain old regular quilled feathers because that is what I found at the store.

David, IMHO the fresh burns shouldn't be avoided in your scouting plans. They can be very productive. I will give you a call after this weekend and we can chat about it further.

Well since SwampRabbitt decided to go hunt live critters instead of foam, it looks like it will be Holly and myself, Andy and Jason representing this thread in Vanderpool at the Bugscuffle Ranch this weekend. I will post some pics of the tourney but it wont be until Monday. Cell phone signal is extremely weak at the ranch and your lucky just to sneak a text out every now and then.

No kidding about cell service out there. I introduced my kiddos to the concept of a pay phone for the first time at Garner SP!

You guys have fun and be safe driving out there. Like I said last year... maybe next year!

I think I may still try and hit the coast. I believe I have a spot I can get out of the wind, tide should be moving.
Back seat is open. Anyone interested? Sunday.

I've been using a truglo 5 pin and it works fine. One of the cheaper models. But I don't shoot tournaments, just kill stuff.

Truglow is very bright. I used to shoot them. I ended up making my own with a copper John sight and added tough fibers. They are bright and very durable. However since my eyes aren't what they used to be, I really enjoy a lens in my sight while sighting in. That way I can see the target. Then once sighted in, I can take the lens out.

just placed some orders. maybe i'll have my longbow setup again by the middle of may for some squirrel action in the forest. d97 to make a new string, new bareshafts to start out tuning it back the right way, a pack of those trueflight flu flu feathers, some wraps, and some small game heads after I determine the point weight I'll roll with. Then I'll start on the same with the recurve. Feeling pretty hellbent on hunting with them this year. Got some nice broadhead quiver options at vanderpool, and even the longbow is sitting pretty with a small 4 arrow quiver that is barely noticeable.

Spot hog makes good sights so I have heard. Axcel makes great sights. Sur-loc have great sights. But those two can be expensive.

I like the smaller pins. Especially for the longer shots. I've been looking at trophy Ridge with their sight that you sight in at 20 & 40 and then it's good out to 100.
