Bought my first NEW bow!


Big Pine Walleye

Recommended Posts

I just bought my first new bow! I bought my first bow (an older bow)last fall at thirty three years of age. I have only shot at targets, but I fell so in love with the sport that I decided to go with a new bow for my first hunt. I bought a hoyt lazertech. I just shot it last night for the first time--WOW--was it fun. I cannot wait for spring to shoot at the targets or for next fall when the first buck walks past my stand! I have only posted once on the archery page--but I read it daily--thanks for all the advice and keep writing so people new to the sport (like me) can learn! Thanks to you all!

BPW- congrats! Very cool getting new gear, isn't it? I just got my new cable and strings for my new bow today. My site will be in on Sat. I should be flinging arrows by next week. I'm as excited as you sound!

Congrats on the purchase.

Scoot--

I think that bows are so awesome--but then when you put all the accessories on them and they look even better. There is nothing like setting up a bow--I felt like a kid in a candy store!

Congrates BPW on the new purchase. As was mentioned if you think this is exciting wait until you hear that unmistakable smack of your arrow hitting home on a deer. Make sure you got the safety harrness on.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
