high country bows

4 posts in this topic

I am about as rookie as you can be to bow hunting, and my uncle just gave me a high country he used to use. I don't think it's been used very much and I'm not sure how old it is, but it seems like a nice bow.

Anybody have any experience with them? Also some bare minimum tune-ups or anything I should have checked out? I like to spend my fall in the duck or goose blind besides rifle season, but I'm thinking pretty seriously about trying some bow hunting next fall. I figure with so many other bad habits, what's one more?? smirk.gif

Back in the day they were one of the better bows out there. As far as what needs to be checked I would start by checking the string and cables. If it is a older bow you should put a new string on it. Bring it to one of pro-shops and have it checked out. Make sure that the draw length is the correct length for you also.

I agree take to pro shop, and then practice as much as possible before going out next fall!

I shoot a HCA Carbon 4 Runner and love it. The main reason I bought it was the weight. It weighs less then 3 lbs and it has a small axle to axle. It is a fast and accurate bow. They had some Customer Service Issues a few years back but they have supposedly fixed them and are working to get back in the market more. When ever I decide to get a new bow it will be ht first one I look at.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
