    Default Need help!

    Ok, I'll be the first to come forward. My name is Eric, and I'm an addict. I can't pass up a good deal on a bow. As most of you know, Arrow Splitter is getting a new bow from me. It shipped out Monday. Today, I replaced it with 2 more bows. Should have them end of next week. Thank God I am single and don't have to explain my problem to a wife. lol Most women just don't understand that empty feeling you get when one bow gets away from you. One another note, I'll probably have a bow for sale in a couple weeks.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    If I could keep everything the same and not have to worry about that, I'd be stoked! My problem is what I want to try to purchase next. Really wanting to get a new mobile hunting set-up so that is probably first. After that I'd really put some thought into another bow ... just because I wouldn't mind having another, but the Bengal is just so darn nice, it's hard to put it down. Really like to build an AR also to use for Coyotes ... choices choices.

    The deer herd in your hunting area would prosper if you built the AR. In an area with coyotes, deer fawn survival rates are about 10%.Fewer songdogs=more deer.

    That is the main reason for it. We have been seeing a lot more lately ... big bastiches too! Had one come in within range, right where I popped a doe, but didn't clear the shooting lane so I never got a chance at him. I know they will be around this fall and we have been seeing more each season so I'm hoping to get a stick in one of them. Then it will be .223 rounds in the future.

    Guess I'm one of the lucky Joes. I was shootin before I met my wife 37 years ago and she has never given me any grief about my archery purchases. Now that I'm older I have so much STUFF that I have very little need of any more and what I do have is good enough to get me through the rest of my life. There are always some changes that occur with equipment, but it really isn't a much as some of the younger people tout.

    Probably the only thing I need t chane right now is to get lighter spined arrows. I'm shooting a 500 spine. I have GT UL600, but even they tune too stiff for my setup. Test shows that I should be shooting closer to a 700-730 spine, but I'm too cheap to go buy them. There aren't too many brands with a 700 spine that fit my budget-----FREE, but I'm taking a close look at the Victory VAP with 80 grain target points.
