ARE YOU UPGRADING.....
« on: January 12, 2011, 09:52:32 AM »
Now that the season is over or winding down, what upgrades or changes do you plan for your archery tackle this off season. Just curious as to how others approach the off season, are you happy with what you have, want to tweak a little or make huge changes? Why?

Me, I'm going to switch out my QAD Ultra Pro LD rest with a Ripcord Code Red ( the QAD doesn't fit my bow properly) and update my binos with a pair of Carson Optics TD-042 high definition binos. (my Nikon Travel Lite binos are pretty beat up and about 10 years old)

my gear is functional and works well for me.  am going to spend more time on my total gym to keep the bow muscles in shape throughout the year to avoid having to buy a crossbow as i age.

Thinking about a new site, haven't made up my mind yet.  I changed a lot last year, and changed some things after the sight, so I need to shoot it a little more to make up my mind.

The way New York State is going I will spend my off season trying to secure a place to archery hunt. Every year it gets more difficult to access property to hunt. Soon, if you do not own or lease some ground in NY State, trying to hunt here will almost be impossible. I think it is getting that way in many states. Combination of the tree huggers that post their lands, hunters that post their land, land that is leased by guides and other hunters, non-hunters that deny access, and the ever increasing use of "nuisance" permits by our DEC, the future looks bleak.

I'll be upgrading everything.  I'll be going from nothing to a new bow with all new accessories (I haven't owned a bow in years, and haven't shot in even longer).

i won a peep eliminator this summer. i really like it. it did take me a month to get use to it, so plan accordingly. the site adjustments are much smaller than w/ a peep site. i am using 1 pin every 20 yards instead of every 10 yards because i can't get the pins tight enough. it's sure nice in low light.

I had a complete Bow make over this past October with the purchase of my New Breed Archery Nemesis Bow..
The only thing I will be adding is a nice Bow case...
Any recommendations on a awesome Bow case?
