Well, it’s time🦌😊. Time to start digging in my hunting tubs to refresh my memory as to what I’ve got for hot, warm, cool and cold weather camo clothing. I normally leave a couple of those tubs down at the farm for last minute changes. Also need to recharge my mosquito repellent unit. Fun times👍🏻😊. My R26 is ready to rock and roll. Didn’t see anything I wanted to shoot last year.
Wishing you guys a great hunting season!! It will be good getting out in the woods away from this crazy world we are in.

Seems like... a lot of science to kill one buck every half decade. I guess it keeps you out of the bars and brothels though. That and outtaya Sheila's kitchen.😂

She won’t let me in the kitchen except to eat and take my pills😊
Yep, it is a lot of planning and sitting in the woods but when one of these finally tippy toes by me…….it’s all worth it👍🏻

BTW, my R26 has some stiff competition this season. That little KI X1 is baddassed accurate! I’m getting ready to post today’s activity on that thread😊

Heck ... you don't need all that crossbow and technology to kill a buck like that. I knew a guy who killed a better one with a 167fps arrow out of a shaped 2x4 with a car spring for limbs! :)

That was the most rewarding deer kill ever for me. BTW, that 608 grain arrow left the bow at 139 fps😆. 25 yard shot. Knocked him down, got up and made it 40 yards before going down for good. I’ll never forget that afternoon👍🏻.

Gotta double check my R26 sight in with RamCat heads. Been spending lots of time with that other🙄😊crossbow in my effort to have it ready for season too. I will be hunting some with both if all goes well, starting next weekend.

385ish would be a good starting point

Need it for reference to set the ballistic holds for the SIG

Nice buck Pin ... I'm seeing doubles though. Might be an issue with my shooting. :p ;)
