  1. with only 3-4 weekends a year and your requested budget thought, I would add a coupke thoughts.  In my experience if using 19 and only fish a few times a year then no tip / roller will be needed.    If fishing a lot or using 7 strand then I agree completely with above.  I agree though with above that a twill tip will be all you need and they are under $10 and take literally 3 min to install

     

    Again if not fishing much then you can get away with cheaper reels but IMO shimano tekota 600s are the only way to go.   Top of the line.  Okuma are junk, again in my opinion   Too many drag issues for what you pay.  Once drag upgrades are done then they are okay, but you will lose fish with them due to jerky drags

     

    19 strand is a bit easier to use with less kinks but I have found fraying issues with the 19 as of lately so am moving to 7 again.  

     

    Last thing that you will not find much disagreement with.   You will never regret going to wire    Just be sure to hold on tight

  2. I always have it with me, what’s your typical strategy with grunting?

    I’ve had great success with grunting once I see a buck. I’ll lightly grunt at him and watch his reaction. Have had several turn and come to the base of the tree. Not much luck blind calling yet though.

  3. Well she was 10 yards from where I lost blood and she laid down so neatly there was no white belly. Found her in 3 minutes in the daylight. I went double lunged through the bottom and cut the major heart artery. Barely any freaking blood and she acted like nothing happened. Absolutely wild. Not a great look for my Magnus Stingers which I am using for the first time. Amazing pass through, but where is the blood!!!! Anyway happy that one less matriarch is off of this doe circus.

    Hey idn713. Just read this. Curious. Great shot and no blood. We’re you in a ground blind?

  5. Me too. My tree was covered in poison ivy. By time I realized it I had already been breaking the vines and removing them as I climbed up. It's on my wrists. I went to dermatologist last year for same thing and he gave me this steroid cream. It was the only thing that worked. 1600692496092.thumb.jpeg.4d6853aa6bd9e953ff908c5fe5affa9c.jpeg

    Good tip on treatment of poison ivy.
    I was taught by a neighbor a cpl years back that poison ivy is very oily when it gets on your skin. After any day in the woods if you treat your hands arms etc like they have grease on them, wash with degreasing soap and warm water you will not develop the rash. I work in it all the time and haven’t gotten the rash since starting this practice. Don’t forget to wash your clothes as well as they carry the oil.
