I guess it's time to start the new thread.

Post at your own risk. If you post a location, your spot will be hunted by someone.

Please don't post pics of deer that were not killed in the Sam with out a disclaimer on it.
Keep it civil, keep it clean, and have some fun.

Put a camera out for the first time Saturday in the area I started hunting last year. Hopefully it's there when I go to retrieve it.

If you feel unsure about it rig up a locking mechanism and you should be fine. That's what HF did when we set out to the woods yesterday.

Are you the guy HF brought out to the house? If so have you shot that bow to see if it groups yet?

Yes sir I am, thanks again for having me over and helping with the bow. I haven't had the chance to shoot just yet, but after I get home this afternoon I'm gonna shoot it a bit and let you know how it goes!

Put 3 cameras out on Sunday. Hopefully pick up some more deer. Checked two cameras our and one is still getting a bunch of pics. If the bucks keep gfrowing like they are already, we are going to have a couple of good bucks. Fingers crossed.

I made locks to go around my cameras. I'd like to come back and them actually be there. These shod help.

Don't know how long I'll leave them there, but I'm already excited.

Didn't shoot till late, but this was the first group. Clipped one of the arrows so not too happy about that. But all in all grouping nicely https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...113c3f6ff7.jpg

John, I can't imagine what caliber bucks you could have left. You've got some real studs there for sure.

We've got a couple off good looking bucks on camera now. Still growing, so who knows what they will do. I have a feeling that if they will stay in the area, someone is going to kill a good deer.

Time will tell.

Put a nut and bolt in my release, makes shooting it way easier, but I still can't group with it that well. This was 30 yards, after that the groups with it open way up. Props to you guys who shoot thumb releases [emoji23]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...bbe155ef3c.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...6a3a3b09e5.jpg

There is a correct way to shoot the release. That might be your issue. Plus your tune was just to get you started and on the plate. How does the bow hold? Whatís your float pattern like? All of these can cause issues.

dmack 05-22-2018 08:44 PM

And also what is spread out? Be realistic with yourself. You just need to stay in the pie plate. Most people are not touching arrows at thirty yards. It takes lots of practice and a good mental shot to group tight consistently.

I honestly do feel like I'm shooting it wrong, it just has a lot of give before the arrow flies and trying to hurry through that I think makes me pull my shots. My float pattern I've been trying is a figure 8 pattern, and what do you mean by how it holds? Also I feel like I really have to pull against the back wall to get my shots up where the sight pin is, which I feel makes my shots less steady

Your hold is how your pin sits on the target. Your float is how the pin moves around the target. If your float is low and under the target could be you pulling up with your release hand. Fast jittery movement is a sign of a short draw length. Slow and stretched out is a sign of a long draw length. Itís finding the draw length and loop length that keeps you smooth and steady on target.

dmack 05-22-2018 10:01 PM

And as for the release shot. It should be a subconscious shot. When it fires it should catch you off guard. Like a surprise at first. Thatís when you know your shooting good shots. Focus on aiming. Not the release going off.

Sounds like maybe his draw length is too short as it stands now?

Hm okay, do you think I should move in to 20 and just shoot focusing on float patterns and repeatability? And how hard should I pull against the back wall, cause where I feel comfortable I shoot tighter groups but they're lower, so I don't know if I'm letting it creep without thinking

I am not saying move forward. Just keep practicing. Focus on making good shot. As your shots get better youíre float will get better also.

forest-hunter 05-23-2018 08:42 AM

AllRight new thread! Excited for deer season to start up already.

huntinfool 05-26-2018 06:23 AM

I wouldn't get hung up on trying to hit the back wall. I'd focus on where it's comfortable and where you're making good shots.
If the bow is set up too long and you feel as though you're trying to stretch to reach the back, then maybe we should shorten your d loop. That way you're able to pull it to the stop and still in a comfortable shooting position. Main thing is to practice.

dmack 05-26-2018 07:09 AM

That bow has a draw stop on the cam. So thatís what stops the draw cycle. If itís like an elite. Pulling hard on it will give it left and rights. I doubt you are creeping. But are more relaxed and letting the bow shoot. You can adjust that stop and change the holding weight of the bow. If you need to.

dmack 05-26-2018 07:17 AM

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...d4de251341.jpg well Sherry is back at it. Shooting turtles in the head with her bow. I have never seen someone get so much entertainment in shooting turtles. :D

I think what he is saying is that when he draws the bow back he's not hitting the draw stop. He has to stretch to hit the stop. So when he relaxes he isn't against that stop. Thats when he shoots well. When he stretches to the stop, that's when he shoots off.


Maybe I'll text him and tell him to get on her and answer .....

Sorry guys tapatalk wasn't sending me notifications. What I meant is that when I draw my bow back and sit comfortably on the back wall and shoot, I keep shooting low. I've noticed I have to pull harder against the draw stop than I was to get the correct height out of my shots.

Dang Dmack, y’all got that many extra arrows? Or you got a string attached?

MetalMan2004 05-26-2018 08:20 PM

In for another year. Iíve been trying to get out there to scout since March and it hasnít happened yet. Had two good years and two decent bucks in my last spot before people trampled all over it last year. Time to go even deeper!

Let me talk slower. Are you shooting turtles with arrows and leaving them in the pond or swimming out to get them or are you using a bow fishing rig? You said sheís shooting them with her bow.

I donít know how much deeper one get realistically get. Seems like theres a forest service road not more than 500 - 600 yards in any direction.

Duh. I thought it said extra bows. No she shoots them with her tournament arrows. They die and float up in three days. And I pull them out and she wash them back off lol. Or throw them away. But we have a tub of arrows to waste on turtles and squirrels in the yard.

Cameras going out this Friday. Scouting has been hit or miss, the woods are thick where I've been scouting compared to where I hunt in Mississippi.

All caught up on the new thread, looks like y'all are getting the equipment lined out and the trail cams hung! I had a good conversation with NF today, it was good to hear from him! HF and Chief have been hard at work with the scouting already and it sounds like they are getting dialed in.
DMack and Sherry--sound like yall are still the sharp shooters yall always were![emoji106]
Lee-- looks like the furniture moving has begun! I know y'all are excited!

To all my other buds on here....big wave! Wishing y'all all the luck in the world this season! I will be following along and participating when I can, but I'm not really certain how my upcoming season will pan out just yet. I will just have to see what these feet (and the law) will allow me to do.

No time for scouting on my end yet but Iím taking Kaden on another ram hunt first week of August if anyone wants to go. Last one for the year. Glad to hear yíall seeing bucks Damian. I got a bigger freezer yesterday so Iíve got room for more animals now. ;)b
