Of the three you mentioned the Vapor is by far the superior bow. Darton first made the Vapor in '04. The bow I currently have is a Darton and I love it.

I GOT THE DARTON so i guess i can agree its a great bow i had alot of fun and didnt do tooo bad for never ever ever firing a bow before i am hooked and will practice hard and long to make sure i can do things right and if i get great groups and feel i can make a good shot on a deer i will head out ARCHERY HUNTING in september. i have a lot of learning to do but my groups were pretty good.

Dave if you ever want to hit the Eden Prairie archery range some night let me know. I'll go fling a few arrows with you. I've only been shooting a couple years so I can say I know the basics and will help you out if I can.

Hey guys...

If you wouldn't mind a "tag-along", I'd love to get out a fling a few pointed sticks with you two. I have not picked up my bow since I hurt my shoulder way last season. I got the "okay" and I'm itchin' to get back into it. I'm going to hit Cabin Fever tomorrow and get my equipment a "once over" and maybe a new toy/string/cable for my Bowtech...

It's been sooooo long, maybe I forgot all my bad habits!! grin.gif

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
