any body have one of these "stabalights"? i'm thinking about getting one to add to my bowfishing set up, just for some added light when in the boat, or to open me up to maybe some bowfishing from the bank when i dont feel like listening to the generator run in the boat all night. im looking for reports, bad or good, on this light, and also looking for a local dealer if anybody knows of one.
thanks, cp

well guys today i have a little rant! i drove into sherburne this weekend to do a little deer hunting with my younger brother. i would just like to say that i am 26 yrs old white male, driving a 2008 crew cab chevrolet 4x4. well i got a little excited to get in the woods and i realized as i drove past a gamewarden truck parked on the side of happytown rd. that i was going 40 in a 20 mph zone. now as i got out of my truck and very respectfully told them hello and asked how their day was going, they immediately frisked me and began to question me about having narcotics in my truck. NARCOTICS IN MY TRUCK?!?!?!?!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? ITS NOT A CADDILAC AND I DONT LOOK LIKE A SUSPICIOUS PERSON. They completely tore my truck apart for at least 30 minutes and all but strip searched me and my brother while my fellow sportsman drove by and looked at us like we were criminals because thats how we were being treated! these guys ruined my hunt and pissed me off so bad that when they gave me my 120$ speeding ticket i just turned around and went back home. so thats how my weekend hunt went. i am so aggrivated with the federal fish and game right now that i may never step foot on a refuge again just so i can limit my chances of an encounter with them.

August 04, 2009 at 4:41pm

well guys i finally got a chance to try out the bow fishing rig that i won as a door prize. it is actually alot harder than i thought it would be, but once i got the hang of it, game on. maybee next trip i will figure something a little better for lights. it is real hard to shoot with the headlight on your head. does anyone have a light that screws into the stabilizer port? and does it work good?

July 23, 2009 at 2:44pm

July 19, 2009 at 9:46pm

Alright guys it's time to vent a little! i woke up early this morning with a fire in my a$$ to burn some gun powder. so i called up a friend and we loaded up some weapons and drove the 40 miles to shoot at Sherburne, only to find that the rifle range that we all pay for with the state taxes coming out of our check every week is closed! wow! i am PI$$ED! the gates were padlocked at the rifle and pistol range with range closed signs and no explanation! whats the deal? any way, if anyone knows when it will re open let me know so i dont waste another sunday morning.
thanks, c.p.

the bucks in my area are starting to put some horns on!!!
who's ready for october 1st????????

May 21, 2009 at 6:36pm

alright heres my offer! if any one has an idea in there head and they want to make it come to life just let me know! if you want to manufacture something for your boat,truck, 4-wheeler, ect. anything! i want to do it! i am a machinist/welder. i have experience and rescources. i have acess to cnc machinery and can mass produce any product (metal) that you want. why just wait untill the next outdoor expo to see someone else getting rich off of an idea you have been thinking about? my prices are very reasonable and i am just trying to get my own business started. if anyone is interested e-mail me and we can talk.

also just because someone has a patent on something dosnt mean i can't build something similar to it. if you dont want to pay for "name brand" and you would accept something a little different then we can do that too.

alright guys,
who has one of these " pawpaw's pirogues".
i'm in the market for a good fiberglass piroge and these look pretty nice. was wondering if you have one how do you like it? or if any one else builds similar boats to these?

January 29, 2009 at 8:37pm

has any one ever taken apart a scott
'little goose" release?

mine is locked up and i need to know if the rods that hold the cam in place are pressed in dowel pins or if they are threaded bolts with the heads cut off?

i tried to tap them out but don't want to beat them out and then find out that they were screwed in.

thanks, c.p.

A comment titled: My .02 in response to a report titled: Bow sight help....

I shoot a copper john dead nuts 2 and i like it. It is a 4 pin sight and you could very well mess up with it. BUT i look at it this way, if you take an extra 2 seconds to make sure u are shooting the correct pin, then you have given yourself 2 seconds to become more comfortable and educated before you shoot.

A comment titled: Full in response to a report titled: duckhunting chokes

The only choke that would come with a benelli and would be labeled ' no steel' would be a full choke. All i can say is the worst that will happen is the end of the barrel will swell causing the choke to get stuck, happened to my beretta and it sucks.

A comment titled: Sustained lead in response to a report titled: Pointers/ Advice

Best i can tell you is keep yor gun moving at the same speed as the bird and shoot for the beak on most shots and continue to follow through after the shot. Also focus on killing oer bird at a time dont rush your shots

A comment titled: Waiting in response to a report titled: arrow rest

I am waiting on my new bow to come in, it comes with the hostage and i am pulling it off and putting the qad. I have a buddy that had a hostage and the brushes would wear out fast and his groups would be all over the place.

I cam remember my grandfather burning toilet paper soaked in alchahol in a cofee can, but i dont remember any specifics. I do remember how nice the heat was an also you just put the lid on when you are done. Sterno cans also work well

A comment titled: Here's one in response to a report titled: Deer ??

Here's a situation u make your mind up.
Say your make a hunt on Wednesday shoot and fatally wound a nice buck but don't find him. And then on Saturday you come across his remains, cut his head off and throw it behind your truck. A couple days later you drive through the gates at thistlewaite and a game warden meets you at your truck just to see how things are going. Right about know u gonna wish u had a tag on that deer! Trust me it don't matter if you say that deer ran in front of your truck as soon as you take possession of the animal or some of it's body parts, well then ..............
Cheers

A comment titled: Exactly in response to a report titled: Deer ??

That's what I would think. If u found a buck 3 days after the shot and cut his horns off it should be tagged.

December 04, 2010 at 4:14pm
A comment titled: Agreed in response to a report titled: Deer ??

Yea Andy I agree with what you said, but if you shot a deer and found it several days later and it was eaten up and you didn't take possession of it ( let's say it's a doe) would you tag that animal?

December 04, 2010 at 9:40am
A comment titled: ? in response to a report titled: Deer ??

I'd say no. It is a deer harvest tag, and in my opinion, the deer was not harvested, it was just killed.
