thanks for starting this again!
Lord willing I'm hoping to make it this year.
I've gotten some camping gear together over the last year.
Haven't done it in nearly 30 years!

Unless someone else has any comments, suggestions and or input...

Bow opener is the 2nd Saturday in the month of September so it would be:

09/08 - 09 2012

I am standing here corrected!!!

One week earlier...

I don't even qualify as a "spert" let alone an "x-spert".
Still, would be glad to share a campfire.

My family and I lost a dear friend yeaterday, Jill Young has passed on to the otherside. We look forward to seeing her again when we get there.

Please pray, lite a candle or do a dance whatever your custom may be as we keep her family and friends in our thoughts.

Marlin 444,
So sorry to hear of the loss.
It's hard to see a wife, mother, &/or friend pass. I'll pray for all concerned.

Lost my mother-in-law this past week but she was ready to go. She was 90 and had out lived everyone from her generation. It was actually a blessing. She went down hill quickly and died in her sleep in a place staffed by people who loved her.

Again, so sorry for the loss.

I am thinking 125gr land sharks or Magnus stingers....The stingers
seem to be easier to sharpen...They have a screw on the
ferrule, and appears I could remove the blade and resharpen on my
Lansky sharpener ????
Got a new Academy Sports opening near us next week, so I am
gonna go give them a look.....

125 magnus stingers is what i shot last year they are good heads and easy to re-sharpen with the lansky--i just need a heavier head shooting with the trad bow.

i had to order mine online cause most places only carry the small 95 to 100gn heads for the compounds.

Could have wandered my way and hoisted another beverage or two. Turkeys here are gobbling like crazy.
