    Dang, our bow season opens Oct. 15 and ends around Feb. 10. We can kill a buck and a doe a day, or two does a day, with a 3 buck limit for the season.

    I haven't ever lost any deer with the Slick Trick heads.

    I need to see if they offer crossbow heads -- that 4-blade design probably won't fit the rails.
    how big are your deer? last year I got a 95 pound button. a couple years ago it was a 185-ish pound doe, which is on the high side of medium for us.
    I can have 1 buck and up to 4 does.

    Average doe is around 120-180 for mature does. 150-240lb for mature bucks. Depending on what part of the state you hunt in. My wall hanger dressed out at 205 lbs.

    nice! so a little smaller than ours on average, but nothing like the "large dog sized" ones closer to the coast.

    This is what I want @OFFICIAL_KA-BAR to do. Full tang, not stick tang. :thumbsup:

    I always thought KA-BAR would do better with full tang myself. Yet, the stick tang has been their tradition for years.

    Yea, the lightweight of the stick tang is probably important when carrying a lot of heavy gear. I personally prefer the espoused tang Knifes myself and is why I would take the BK7 over the 1217 and over the Blade above :D

    took the crossbow out to sight it in - 2" high at 10 yards, dead on at 20 & 50.
    almost shoots completely through the big, black layered foam target cube at 50 - which also strips the plastic fletching from the stock bolts. :(

    helped a buddy sight in a couple of .22s at 100, then we went for a woods walk to see if there were any squirrel as stupid as us (there weren't) while we scouted out where to set up for deer hunting once the temps are a little more reasonable.
    But we stopped in the trees, fired up the twig stove, and cooked steaks for lunch, then found a dead pine tree full of fatwood -- about 3' of its trunk is sitting on my front porch now.

    That knife would weigh less if they put an actual cutting grind on it.

    but then it wouldn't survive all the abuse as well.
    also important to note -- Kabar makes them, but the US government designed them - and Kabar can't change the design or they won't meet spec any longer, even if the change might be an improvement.

    Monday is the first day of fall -- it was in the 90's again today, but the humidity was only 45%, so it was pretty comfortable, compared to the previous few days.

    in other news - do you know how the werewolf got out of jury duty?
















    he used a loup-hole..........

    now, start posting, or I'll start telling more dad jokes!

    A cowboy and a fisherman walk into a 19th century saloon followed by the cowboys horse and a swordfish caught by the fisherman. They all sit down at the bar, ...
    Oh look at the time! :eek:

    2 guys walked into a chemistry bar.
    the first one said "I'll have a glass of H2O"
    the second one said "I'll have a glass of H2O too!"
    the second one died.

    ...so the bar keep places a bottle of whiskey in front of the horse and the fish. He says, "You two look to be needin' a pick-me-up to cure those long faces."
