Anyway, I'll take picts of it once it arrives on my door step.. heck, maybe I'll line em up and take a family picture.. LOL

New bow.. Hoyt UltraElite.. cant wait to get her and sight her in.. I think it will be a spot and 3D killin machine!

Deitz,

You can never have too many, you will need to show us a family photo. Are you married? If you are how do you explain to the wife the need for a new bow? When you already have 6.

Sounds like you need a 12 step program. I see you've reached the first step admitting you have a problem. Just eleven more. I'm stuck in the denial stage, theres no problem here.

Deitz, what I want to know is if you are part octapus to shoot that many. And I thought fishing was an addictive sport.

I've got 5 compounds, 3 stick bows and a recurve. Last weekend I was ogling the new Hoyt Katera XL. If they had it in left hand I might have left the store with yet another bow.

I'm just glad firearms don't evolve as quick as bows do. The custom stocked left handed Remington model 700 in 30/06 I got for my 14th birthday is just as good or better than what is on the market today. I'll probably never buy another deer rifle before I die. On the other hand the bow I was shooting when I was 14 is darn near laughable by todays standards. Even a bow that is 5 years old is often times light years off current technology. Sometimes I wonder if it's because archery companies stand to profit by making improvements a year at a time instead of releasing the best possible product all at once. Who knows.

Great point Hub-... They have come a long ways in the last few years with archery.. faster, more forgiving, quieter!... Guns, like you said, maybe even arent as good as they were 20 years ago.. LOL

I dont think its the archery companies holding back... Its just they learn each year, and try to out-do!

part of the reason I got the new to me bow, my 1992 Hoyt ProStar Meridian just wasnt cutting it any more on targets....

Just had a thought, raffle off one of your old bows to <18yr olds on this site every time you buy a new one. Win-win for everybody. Promotes the sport to younger generation, you get a little $ for your used bow and satisfaction that you're helping out a youth that can't afford a better bow. Plus you get to buy a new one whenever you get the itch without any guilty feelings whatsoever!

Heat- thats a great idea... however I am a bit of a mutant... I'm 6'3"... and have monkey arms to boot.something like 74' wingspan.. 31" draw... and, although I am right handed, I am left eye dominant.. so I shoot left handed...

So, of the gazillion archers there are in the world, and the few that would want to shoot my hand me downs... There may be about a dozen in MN who are 31" draw and LH... LOL

Deitz, you had me going with the 31" draw length, but I am right handed, and being 6'7" with monkey long arms, I'll hold out until my brother finally gets around to making long bows.....

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).  
    • Sushilicious
      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
