Working overtime early this year while in Ohio allowed me to set my sights on a new bow. Well, that along with the fact I sold my 2008 Bowtech Guardian to my friend and was in need of a bow before Summer rolled around and practice time would be at a premium. Having shot different brands and models of bows the past few years while debating on updating what I had, I knew I liked the way Hoyt's balanced not just during the draw cycle and the shot but also just while holding and carrying around. As you'll hear in the video below, I shot numerous Hoyt models once I had decided that my next bow would be one and really liked the way the Vector 32 felt in my hand. I could continue to type out the pros and con (yes there is one slight con about the bow now that I have been shooting it but I believe I can get that taken care of) but I'll let the video of me talking do the, um, talking instead. Enjoy!
As July is coming to an end (and yes I know we were hardly as active blogging wise as I said we were going to be on the blog this summer, apologies are in order for that so please forgive me) and August looms on the horizon, mine and Paul's focus is getting turned to the upcoming hunting season. There is still lots to do in the final preparations department with certain spots on public land we have to get ready for camera setupds as well as equipment to be bought and weapons to get dialed in and practiced with, but the other week I start giving my Summit Viper a little TLC and the finished product is discussed in the video below. Give it a watch and maybe it will give you some ideas on how to spruce up that treestand you've had a few years.
Back in June you might recall that I made a trip up to New York. While we were there we did get in a couple of days of fishing. I personally had no luck other than a few bites. However, Jackie, who sat directly across from me on the boat, got her limit of Lake Trout with her largest weighing in over 5 lbs. We were fishing with live Mooneye minnows as we usually do for the trout. My Grandfather also had some luck as well. It was great to get out during our short trip home and even better to see Jackie catching fish!
I've attached the other photo in our media section so take a look!
I stumbled across a site on accident the other day. What I found was unexpected, yet very useful! I found a website that has hundreds of firearms manuals for free download. You can find the site here. If you have been looking for a manual and could not find it I would take a look here first if you can't find it at the website of the manufacturer.
Sometimes the great ideas that we have just need something to bring them to the forefront. The Inside Out team will be putting our talents to work and sharing our knowledge and love of the outdoors with anyone who wants to listen.
