Just in general.. LOL... I have a horrible addiction.. and its Archery!

As of this morning, I now own 7 bows.. Why on earth I need that many I dont know.. but hey, a guy could have a worse habbit..

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.....

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?
    • leech~~
      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
