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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
