BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!!!

11 posts in this topic

I shot my friends Bowtech Gaurdian....I cant even hardly stand to look at my bow now....It twangs soo loud and the arrows lob out at a slow 290 something fps. It looks ancient too. The first arrow I launched, I didnt even know I shot I saw the arrow in the block and gasped HOLY ****!!But my PSE was my first bow and that was when I was 13 so I think its time to shell out the bucks this summer grin.gif

... and it'll take a lot of bucks to be shelled out to acquire a Guardian! However, I think it's worth every penny! I really, really, really want one, but timing's not good for me right now- baby on the way, deck and landscaping work to spend $$$ on this summer, elk hunting trip to pay for this Fall. I am hoping to get one by next year at this time though!

P.S. Did I mention I REALLY want one?!?

That seems to be the word from my bow hunting nut buds that the Guardian is indeed something special. So until my money tree buds I'll stay away from them!

I've been looking at the Guardian and the Vectrix. Shot them both and can't decide which way to go. Leaning toward the Hoyt Vectrix though. Can't go wrong with either I guess, but it's a tough decision.

I will be picking up the Vectrix tomorrow, the big difference that swayed me was the Vectrix was a little cheaper and I like the way Hoyts look, gotta have that to.

Craig and surewood, I'm with you guys- I really think the Vectix and Guardian/Commander are the cream of the crop right now. I've shot a crap-load of bows in the past couple months and I liked those two FAR better than any other bow I shot. surewood, I thought I remembered them being the same price? Regardless, they're a lot of $$$. I remember about five years ago thinking "A bow just can't get any better than this." Boy, was I wrong!

Archery really is an addiction isn't it? I too am amazed at what manufacturers can accomplish each year. Heck, even in the accessories department. Some home runs hit this year that is for sure.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
