Legacy

Legacy -The 2019 Season-

Recommended Posts

Well I thought I would get an early start on this thread this year. Normally I dont start this thread until after Labor Day but I'm starting to see a ton of deer cam pics from people and the 2019 "hunting" talk has started. 2018 ended for me with a bit of disappointment. I had my opportunities but never connected. One of the biggest changes for this year was to invest in my firearms. With all the time i put in the woods it was apparent I needed to ensure my equipment wouldnt fail me. I purchased a new CVA Accura v2 muzzleloader at the end of last season and I just ordered a Savage 220 that should be here soon. After numerous conversations with others... it looks like I am pairing both of them with a Leupold https://www.leupold.com/scopes/rifle-scopes/vx-freedom-muzzleloader-3-9x40 (Ill post some pics once they get all setup). I am still looking for advice on ammo for each of them.

Im still shooting my Mathews Z7 and figured it was time for a bow overhaul. I ordered some new string silencers, dampeners, strings, and cables and I dropped the bow off to the shop yesterday for a tune up. I brought my kid with me so we could do some adjustments on his bow (draw length, peep adjustment, poundage, ect). Ordered a dozen fresh arrows for him along with new broadheads so he should be good to go by the end of the week. 

Yesterday afternoon led me back to the wormhole of broadheads. I have always been in the market for the "perfect" broadheads and have done a full circle right back to Slick Tricks. And now after the resent bow adjustments.. my kid will also be shooting them.

 

All in all, I guess this is me trying to be prepared for the 2019 season. Good luck everyone.

I shoot the savage 212...I used to pair it with the barnes expanders exclusively but since no longer in production I had to find another option. The closest thing I have found is the hornady superformance. I used them last year and like them a lot. They hit hard and pattern well.

My father shoots the Lightfield mag hybrids out of his 220 and I’ve seen him take deer out around 200 yards. Guns zeroed at 100 gets about an average of a 1 3/4 group. In my opinion for a slug gun you can’t beat it. Honestly though it’s a bit expensive but the best thing is to buy a few different brands and paper test them see what works for you

I'm always glad when this thread starts...it means we're on the cusp! Last weekend was the first time we worked on treestands, and we're set to go again this weekend, too. I want to get all of the existing sets finalized so that we can begin work on: a new piece of property that we're closing on this month!!! So excited. It's a piece that I've had my eyes on for some time, close to a parcel that we lease, and it looks sweet. I'll post pics as we move forward, but for now the idea is to scout, hang a few sets, put a new floor in the elevated box blind, and think about an orchard and food plots for next year.

FYI, $90 apiece here: https://www.presleysoutdoors.com/browning-strike-force-850-trail-camera-16mp/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI042t3aD04wIVBpSzCh1xGAYfEAQYASABEgKi5fD_BwE. Full disclosure though, I've never ordered from these guys.

 

I love the original BTC5HD from back in 2016, best camera I've ever run, but the newer BTC5HDP gives them a run for their money with an internal viewer.
