Sight Pins

3 posts in this topic

I am going to Sell my HHA single pin for a Copper John. What is everyones preference .029 or .019 pins.? I am having a hard time deciding which way I want to go. My HHA is .019 which is nice for long target shots but for hunting what would be recomended? Thanks

I think its personal pref... I have a copper jon and have the .19... I do believe the larger pins gather more light? Which might help you in low light situations.

I have .29 pins and looking closely at it this past week i realized that to get the fiber optic wire to stay in the pin, they melt it over, creating a mushroom like end where you actually aim with. This would be something to look into, Do the .19 and the .29 pins have the same "mushroom" diameter? if yes, go with the .29, because the actual sight pin would be the same diameter. if not, personal preference. hope you understand what i am trying to say. just something to look into

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
