Tips are needed!!

4 posts in this topic

My buddy was in an crash 3 years ago and had his arm shattered it is all pins and plates now. He had a one year cross bow permit. Last fall he went back to his compound but the pain he went threw trying to use it made him go back to the doctor to get a lifelong crossbow permit.

I need tips for setting up a crossbow for turkey hunting if there are any. Any thing we should try let me know. Thanks guys.

I don't have any crossbow experience but I have seen a tool, which you may already know, that is used to help pull the string back with one hand.

Otherwise if there is a way that you can mount a bi-pod to it or just use a portable bi-pod that would be beneficial so he doesn't have to support the weight.

You might have to wait for someone else with more experience than I with the equipment to reply. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
