Awesome Compound Bow

Posted by in Hunting, Outdoors

Diamond Archery Infinite Edge Bow Package After deciding to start shooting a bow again after several years I found this at Cabela’s. The Diamond Archery Infinite Edge Bow Package — Mossy Oak® Break-Up Infinity® I dialed this in at 55lbs and it is very accurate.  I am so glad I bought this at Cabela’s because now I am back into shooting bows.  This new compound will be used next year during deer season, feeling good about tagging a deer! I have been so pumped since getting the Diamond Archery Infinite…read more

The Best Rangefinder for Deer Hunting

Posted by in Hunting

After deciding to add a modern rangefinder to my hunting kit, I did a bunch of looking.  I kissed a few toads along the way, and I was also blown away by some others, but my search was over when I found the Vortex Ranger 1000 Rangefinder.  It represents the perfect intersection of a full featured scope with a price that won’t break the bank. I’m mainly a deer hunter, and most of that I do from a stand – (if you need a good tree stand and at a…read more

The Best Medium Priced Ladder Stand

Posted by in Hunting, Outdoors

Let’s get this out of the way right off – There are about as many different ladder stands out there as there are hunters using them.

I like to be comfortable in the woods, but I had grown used to the sometimes heavy gear that passes for “scent-blocking” these days. Yeah, there are the carbon-laced numbers, but are you going to see a carbon solution in a single layer or early season, breathable shirt? ScentBlocker® has solved this problem with their new 1.5 Performance Long-Sleeve hunting shirt. With a new technology…read more

The perfect combination: A Mathews Z7 or Z7 Extreme bow and Big Sticky’s BBQ.

Posted by in Hunting

In October of 2011 my old Hoyt single cam bow needed a new stabilizer, so I took it to Big Creek Archery in Troy, MO. I’d driven past the shop a number of times, and it’s close to my farm. It’s a smaller full service shop with an attached shooting range. As they were helping me pick out a new stabilizer, I made the mistake of asking about a new Mathews bow. These guys know they have a product that sells itself, because their response was very low pressure. They…read more
