Top Bow 2012-05-30

It is June 9th, and we are in Gladwin, Michigan for one of the Michigan Bow Hunters District Three Super seven 3-D shoots, held at Top Bow Archery and Taxidermy. It was a beautiful day for a shoot. Temperature was in the low seventies, light breeze, and bright sun. I was shooting with my two brothers which made the shoot even better.

Communication, That's the Key! 2012-05-29

Dodge Thornton is a friend that Buck met after we were married. I always wondered if he got his name because he was built like a truck or because his folks just got creative about spelling Doug. The longer I knew him though, the more I suspected it might have something to do with his personality.

InstaTree 2012-05-31

Are you a ground pounder like me? I get nervous climbing on a chair to change a light bulb, let alone climb a tree to hunt from a tree stand. Now, I didn't say I don't hunt from treestands, but now you understand the risks I will take on my life to do so. But as a rule, I would rather take my chances on the good ole earth.

Still Hunting 2012-05-22

 As I eased along the old logging road, I caught movement off to my right. I wasn’t sure what is was at first, but then a whitetail doe stepped out from behind some brush. I froze. She continued to move quietly parallel to the logging road I was on.

 Sighting in Your Bow

 

Question: I have a new bowsite, but am having trouble sighting it in, help?

Answer:   This is a common problem for people when first trying to set up a bowsite. The answer is fairly simple, but not easy to come by on your own. When you shoot your bow, shoot enough arrows so that you are getting a consistent group. By that I mean that your arrows are hitting the target consistantly in the same spot. Without a group, you can't know which way to move your site. If you are unable to group your arrows, you may need to get some help from someone concerning your shooting form.

Once you have established a group you can start moving your pins to compensate for your sighting errors. This is fairly simple - move your sight pin in the direction that your arrows are grouping from the bullseye. In other words, if you are shooting high, move your pin up, if you are shooting left of the bull, move your pin left.

All left and right movement, should move all your pins if you have multiple pins. Yardage will be moved one pin at a time.
