    Crank the # as low as it'll go Will. It don't take a lot to kill a deer.

    I'm not going out west this year (first time in 20+ years), but I do have a cabin in north Wisconsin where I sure will put my time in. I'm using either a Zipper recurve with carbon express 4000's and Wentzel woodsman BH's or a 55# osage selfbow of my own making and heavy ash arrows tipped with 160 gr grizzles.

    Good luck all

    sounds great man!!! i would love to hunt deer in wisconsin!!! big 'uns up that way!!!:D

    also wanted to say this, which was in my mind, but i just thought about it. well, with my father passing recently, he has two bows at his house, and my brither and i are going to get them. one is his recurve,55#, with his old quiver and arrows(and he used to shoot grass carp with it), and another recurve. my brother doesnt hunt, but is gonna learn to shoot some, so he will get the single recurve, and im getting the recurve with the arrows and all. cant wait to learn to shoot it..........its an old bear bow!!! it will be like my dad is with me in the woods!!:)

    Definatly. The more time you put in the better you will get and more deer you will see. I grew up in Wisconsin and have been bowhunting there since I was 12. This will be my 11th year doing it, but my first year living in Florida with limited time up there:(. Haha, oh well the weather is a fair trade IMO!

    Your always welcome to hunt in Wis....there are some big ones:eek:

    Shoot me a pic of the Bears, you might have a collector there, but in any case if you learn to shoot the recurve I guarantee you'll love it.

    Not too far from Hayward, maybe 40 miles I think.

    Living in FL you'll have some deer hunting. kinda like squirrels compared to Wis. deer :D I was hog hunting down near Melbourn a few years ago and brought some meat into the locker where this guy had a 10 pt hanging, basket rack. He proudly informed me that this trophy weighed a whole 110 lbs :rolleyes:....I had a lab that big.

    I'm heading out with my Wild Horse Creek recurve (57lbs @ 28") Easton aluminum 2020's and 125 gr. Magnus Stinger BuzzCuts.

    All of my hunting will be done here in Kansas this fall. I saw a couple of bruisers last year that never got within range of a dart... hopefully they survived the noisy season and will be around again this year.

    Already in training with some weight lifting and lots of shooting. I'll be setting up trail cams and such starting next month. I think we need to start a trail cam thread if there isn't one already.
