re: Best sidearm when bow hunting - tomcatrav
I've heard of pigs doing that but never seen it around here. Typically I get lots of eagles and vultures and an occasional coyote on camera over carcasses. ...

re: Best sidearm when bow hunting - tomcatrav
Thought about leaving him. But where he died was near a highly traveled trail near one of my best stands. I don't want a bunch of coyotes running around there. Wanted to find him and drag him out . Ended up putting him in a recently harvested cane field with a camera over him. Hopefully can get...

re: Best sidearm when bow hunting - tomcatrav
Be hard to "shoot my buddy in the pecker" if I'm by myself tracking the animal , which I usually am. Hence the need for the sidearm. Or I guess I could finish him off with another bow shot in the dark . That would work well. And good luck eluding an animal in the shite I was in, but I agree that ...

re: Best sidearm when bow hunting - tomcatrav
You seem like a piece of work. Id venture a guess that I have killed more hogs than you ever will . And probably killed more animals with a bow as well. But keep running your mouth. Nothing bad has ever happened to anybody who approached a wounded boar. Especially in knee deep slop on all fours....

Best sidearm when bow hunting - tomcatrav
Need some advice OB. Last night I was trailing a bow-shot boar thru the swamp . As I was on all my hands and knees crawling under palmettos, I realized that if he was still alive and charged me while I was on the ground I was in A LOT of trouble as i had nothing with me except a flashlight. Lucki...

re: Keeping raccoons off of deer feeder - tomcatrav
Best option (imho) is to feed soybeans instead of corn. Coons don't mess much with soybeans for whatever reason. If that isn't desirable or doable, put varmint cages on your feeders and run traps as stated above. They make great archery practice as well. ...

re: Elk hunting guide recommendation - tomcatrav
It was super easy. Very different experience every than my first elk hunt. The New Mexico hunt involved short rides in a Polaris utv, followed by hikes of less than a mile through relatively easy terrain. When we shot our elk, we would call in a guy with a tractor who would load it in the fro...

re: Any idea what happened on my shot? - tomcatrav
You will find him tomorrow. He's definitely dead. If u can locate somebody with a dog that would be optimal, but if you can't you will still find him. Good luck! ...

re: Any idea what happened on my shot? - tomcatrav
Were back legs paralyzed? Was he dragging himself with his front legs ? Sounds like a spine shot too far back to me. Also , not to preach, but this is why I always reload and put another round in em until they are completely down or they are out of the lane....

re: Aimpoint - tomcatrav
Used aimpoint express for a while. I still mostly use my feet to feel the break , but I don't use the fingers in front of the face anymore to pick a target. Instead i combine what my feet and eyes are telling me, pick a target and putt. Learning to use my feet definitely helped me be a better putt...

re: Super Lob Wedges - tomcatrav
I carried a 62 cleveland for years. Never found it very useful. IMO, Most of the time if you have left yourself a shot that truly requires a 62 or higher loft, you aren't likely to get up and down anyway. I will say though, I played spinners out of the sand with a low bounce 62 and could h...

re: Recommendations on Indoor Putting Green - tomcatrav
Don't remember exact dimensions. But it is about 15 feet long by 3 or 4 feet wide. One hole on each end. Championship speed (or whatever they call the fastest one. You will love it. I bought all the shims and pins and stuff too but you don't really need those, probly a waste of money. ...

re: Hot Melt DIY - tomcatrav
Nice work!! I would recommend using glitter glue next time. The specific gravity of the glitter glue is slightly higher, creating a higher MOI and more favorable launch characteristics. It also has the added benefit of making your driver look like it just left a strip club. Maybe my favorite ...
