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.

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
