  1. Wondering if anyone has any experience with the Savage Axis II in 308 ? i just won one in a gun lottery and will be picking it up tomorrow. just looking for ammunition preferences, general likes / dislikes, any mods etc.
  2. Lol. Got it. I hunt and live in 7A and was just curious what town he came out of. Beautiful animal for sure. Congrats ‘Bout Time Mike
  3. Nice!!! Where is oswego county ? ‘Bout Time Mike
  4. Do you find that you have to tune the broad heads to align with the fletchings on crossbow bolts? I do this on my compound with fix blades and they shoot great. Just curious what everyone finds on their crossbows with fixed blades ‘Bout Time Mike
  5. For early season browns you are fishing tight to shore but as summer sets in and fall approaches 2 miles from the shore of FH will roughly put you in 70 FOW. Depending on your target species you will almost always be out further than that. ‘Bout Time Mike
  6. Estrus can / grunt tubes? Just started to get fresh scrapes showing up Anyone try one with success yet ? ‘Bout Time Mike
  7. Get a crossbow with a assisted cocking (crank) device. There are many in the market now where it makes it so anyone can cock them. As far as compound bow goes start with a cheap kids bow or something like a Diamond SB1 where you adjust draw weight all the way down to 7lbs and just continually build strength. As it get easier to draw increase draw weight slowly and continue. It is like Physical therapy all about getting range of movement and building muscle memory again. You may never be able to pull 70lbs but dont need to in order to kill a deer. ‘Bout Time Mike
  8. Not a great picture but any ideas ? Trail cam pics from down in 7R on the border of the arnot forest. Pretty decent size. Too big for a household cat ‘Bout Time Mike
  9. Down south by the arnot forest ‘Bout Time Mike
  10. This time of year you can find a lot of decent 2 year old and steelhead offshore (450+). It is more consistent to normal (temp) fishing. There are also staging salmon moving into the bays and around the piers. These are normally the more stubborn fish to get to go ‘Bout Time Mike
  11. I brought my climber into a newly acquired property one morning at 430. It was pitch black. Found a tree in the perfect spot set up and and settled in for daybreak. After a couple hours I had to get rid of some coffee and needed a break. I climbed down and relieved myself and then after a few minutes went back up for an all day sit. The tree had poison oak all over it and I never noticed it. The first body part that I touched with my hands was .....you guessed it. The worse 2 weeks of my life. Nothing I tried would take the pain and itch away. It got so bad I had to go to DRs and get a steroid to help. ‘Bout Time Mike
  12. I have been shooting G5 Stryker. I have had good luck with them but have broken some blades with rib shots. So I’m thinking about trying something different. I tried the Montec but couldn’t get them to fly right even after tuning. Looking to see what everyone’s opinions are on the following Muzzy Trocar Muzzy MX4 Wasp Havalon HV Also looking for a decent head for black Bear. I have rage, and also NAP spitfire but i prefer fixed over mechanicals ‘Bout Time Mike
  13. I use Grudens bibs / jacket. Lightweight and easily slides over shoes / boots. I even wear my mine in spring and fall when the mornings are cool ‘Bout Time Mike
  14. Fished the FHC today with friends from camp. We were greeted with solid 3-5 foot waves as we cleared the chute this morning. That quickly changed my game plan of running offshore. With a huge pack of boat to the East I decided to run a touch west and work the inside waters. I set down in 85 feet and ran a simple 5 rod spread consisting of 2 riggers, 2 dipsies, and a chute copper. Screen was solid in 100-120 FOW and it didn’t take long before we moved some rods. It turned into a slow grind for the rest of the day as the fish were just plain stubborn. We averaged one fish every 45 minutes to an hour. Our first 4 fish were all meat fish and then things went silent. I changed out the meat for flys and we started moving rods again. With 5 decent fish in our box we needed one more 20+ to add if we were going to be in contention. At 12:45 I started to pick up lines and while bringing in the copper our Port side dipsy fires and knew it was a solid fish. Once we scooped into the net I felt confident we had a decent box of 6 fish to make a good showing. We ended up in 6th place out of 59 teams with a little over 119 pounds. Tom Allen and Stephanie took the win with just over a 131 pound box ‘Bout Time Mike
