kodiak bows

4 posts in this topic

Anybody own or ever hear anything about kodiak bows. I can get a really good deal on one and was wondering how they compare to top of the line models. Also i was wondering about a whisker biscuit for a rest. They seem to slow the arrow down a bit but are so convienent for hunting. Any experience with these items would be appreciated.

Kodiac- I have never shot one of these bows myself.. However, you do see a lot of them on the market, and I have seen quite a few of them shot. They were relitivly quiet, and the people I saw shooting them were pretty darn accurate with them.. I would shoot it and see how it feels to you.. that is what is most important.

As for the WB rest... for many its a love hate relationship!... some love them, some hate them... its all up to the person! If you do get one, they are easy to tune, they are very convienient as you say, but be prepared to have to fletch quite a bit more!

I myself shoot a trophy taker.

Yeah, feathers are pretty much out of the question with the biscuit, but like dietz said you'll be fletching a lot more. I'm not sure if they're still around, (you see them on clearance racks here and there) but the origninal model of the wb didn't have the slot in it to slide an arrow in from the side. The new models do, and you probably won't have to worry, but just keep your eyes open. The models without the cut out force you to put the point of the arrow through first, or slide the fletchings through backward, which looked like a pain.

You can also cut hairs out of the biscuts to alow for better fletching clearance (I've been told).

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy. "   Just because you are not glowing doesn't mean its necessarily healthy for a fetus it takes awhile for it to build up in a healthy adult that's just my           Methylmercury exposure in Wisconsin: A case study series” (2005)
      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
