re: Give me a list of must haves for someone looking to get into bow hunting - A_bear
Gotta have a rope to pull your bow up to the stand, screw in bow/bag holder, range finder, cover scent/scent killer, light weight clothes because it's hot as hell, thermocell with plenty refills, and I always bring a back up release just in case something happens to my primary one. ...

re: Best Arrow to Shoot - A_bear
I shoot the gold tip hunter xt as well and I like them. They work with my bow so I'll keep shooting them. I shoot a pse with a 27" draw and 70#'s. The arrows are the 400 series. Should work well with your setup. I would throw those rages away and get some grim reapers though :cheers:...

re: New gmc/chevy 2500 - A_bear
The diesel will give you better fuel mileage, more power, will last longer, and upgrades will give you more power and mileage than upgrades on a gas burner. That 6.0 vortec is a good engine but in a 2500 it will get terrible gas mileage and give you "less" power due to the weight of the truck. I wou...

re: What does Hartung's family do? - A_bear
I actually didn't know any of this and I'm pretty good friends with her brother. Super nice guy and he's a pilot and on his way to becoming a helicopter pilot I'm pretty sure. I know that him and the step dad enjoy shooting guns and hunting and they have some badass guns that he let me shoot. Never ...

re: Anybody own an unpopular cartridge? - A_bear
I have a 6.5 Grendel, 6.5 creedmoor, and 10mm glock. Not sure how unpopular they are now but people usually find them interesting at the range. ...

re: Early Season Deer Hunting - A_bear
Early season deer hunting is tricky because of the heat, deer don't have to move far at all to find food and those damn squirrel hunters. Mostly the heat though. I wear very light pants and a light t shirt for the walk to the stand and then put on my light jacket once I get up the tree and settled i...

re: 300 Blackout with Supressor and Thermal - A_bear
Both of my 300 blackouts had 16" barrels. I didn't really need the maximum performance since I just used them for deer hunting in thick woods. So they got the job done for me. I do love my 6.5 Grendel. Haven't killed anything with it yet since this will be my first season with it but I killed a coup...

re: 300 Blackout with Supressor and Thermal - A_bear
I don't know much about suppressors or thermal scopes so forgive me if this question is ignorant, but why is the suppressor a necessity? I like them and all and I wouldn't mind owning one for my 6.5 Grendel, but I've never wanted to spend the time or money getting one. I feel like even with the supp...

re: How to lock in on a deer. - A_bear
You should be able to pick up on his tracks pretty easily judging by the size of that deer compared to others eating out of your feeder. Follow them back a few hundred yards and you'll be on his trail. Set up a climber a good ways off of his trail (25-30 yards if bow hunting. 80+ if gun hunting), fi...

re: Climbing or spike shoes..where do u get advice - A_bear
I'm not following you either. I thought you were talking about Spurs too. Why would you wear spiked shoes in a climbing stand? If you're saying you're worried about the stand slipping because the built in spikes are too dull to dig into the tree, sharpen them with a grinder. The spikes on the new su...

re: How many of you hog hunters is as good as Franz-Albrecht? - A_bear
I watch that video from time to time because it's awesome. Dude is a beast. I wish they could cut hog dogs loose on wma's for a week or so after bow season. I'd love the opportunity to shoot at hogs like that with my 6.5 Grendel AR. I know I'm nowhere near as good as him though. Those $3,000+ rifles...

re: Is there a favorite broad head for deer hunting - A_bear
Another vote for grim reapers. I shot G5 montecs for a few years but I didn't like the way they fly. They always had a little rise to them in flight. So I decided to try out the grim reapers and they fly exactly like field points and leave a ridiculous blood trail. ...

re: Spin-off: whats the best climber as far as price, safety, ease of use? - A_bear
I have the summit specialist sd and my cousin has the viper elite sd. They're the best summits when you have a long way to walk. They're solid as a rock, easy to set up, and comfortable if you change out the mesh seat. I wear a hss harness though, just in case. ...

re: Has anyone ever heard of a Manx cat before? - A_bear
I got her from a breeder in Houston. F1's and F2's are the most expensive and can be up around $20k. there's no way in hell I'd spend that much on any animal. Mine is an F4. She's a little smaller and doesn't have the perfect color patterns that the 1's and 2's have. ...

re: Has anyone ever heard of a Manx cat before? - A_bear
Yeah she's a big ole cat. Mine probably can't jump 10 feet but she can easily jump over 5 straight up. The food bill is pretty high for her though. She eats like a damn cow. I can't convince her to walk on a leash. She's too stubborn. ...

re: Has anyone ever heard of a Manx cat before? - A_bear
One of my friends has one. It's huge, has no tail and is pretty chill. Check out savannah cats and highland lynx's, they're pretty cool too. I have a savannah and she's pretty badass. ...
