Was in my treestand (hunting) last week when I looked down at my bow and noticed something................

Looks like your cable slide is missing Perry...

I knew you guys would get it pretty quickly!

2 days before the hunt I noticed some erratic flight of arrows in practice. I made slight adjustments to my sight but couldn’t seem to pinpoint the problem. Funny how sometimes the problem is right there staring at you but you don’t see it! ;-)

I didn’t put 2 and 2 together until I was in my stand and noticed the cables pushing against the vane on my arrow- then it all made sense!

Luckily I was able to borrow one from my buddy’s backup bow.

You need a better string.

From: Rut Nut

Yeah, I’m overdue for a new string. Should have done it in the offseason................

second picture peep looks sideways?

It looks like severe fletching contact even with the cable slide. I always tried to keep the fletching from hitting cables.

It is Bou, but it squares up at full draw.

green mountain- that’s just the camera angle in the second pic- no vane contact with the cable slider!

Not a Mathews Spike- it’s a Darton! ;-)

Good eye Knife2sharp!

LOL Guys- I just replaced the insert in the biscuit! : )

Darton nice. Not too many out there and they are great bows. I happen to have a dealer not too far away.

People say that about gingers as well, but really?

Some would say your D loop is tied incorrectly.

t-roy and Matt- LOL! : )

How is that, Franklin?

From: Franklin

If you look at the twist in your d-loop and the direction of your knot you are imparting torque on the string.....that may be the reason your peep also realigns when you pull back.

I always have the top burnt end out from your face and the bottom in to your face. This is the way most tie their d-loops. Others say it doesn`t matter....just a FYI.

Ok- thanks Franklin. Didn’t know that made a difference.

Someone stole your drop away rest and put a WB on?

You claim to be hunting in PA, but there's not a single mushroom in that picture...

02-Oct-20
Lmao. Nobody knows a mushroom like the cronies of the PA bowsite state page. Classic
