00:00:35.080 –> 00:00:40.620
show last week but we had two shows in one week before that so you know we made up for it. But

00:00:40.620 –> 00:00:46.280
folks I want to talk to something that’s a talk about something this week that’s kind of near in

00:00:46.280 –> 00:00:52.400
and dear to my heart I guess is bow hunting. Bow hunting season opens up here in Pennsylvania on

00:00:52.400 –> 00:00:58.760
Saturday. So I’m really looking forward to that. I look forward to this every year. Unfortunately a

00:00:58.760 –> 00:01:03.960
little late this year getting the dough permit. I didn’t get one this year. They’re already all

00:01:03.960 –> 00:01:09.440
taken by the time it was time to get my license. They open that up usually July 1st and usually by

00:01:09.440 –> 00:01:19.240
like the end of July they’re usually all pretty well chewed up. So I didn’t get a dough permit

00:01:19.240 –> 00:01:25.400
this year but I got a buck tag. You know folks for me going hunting is one of those things where

00:01:25.400 –> 00:01:31.600
you know it’s an enjoyment thing for me. You know I do like the meat I’m not gonna lie. You know you

00:01:31.600 –> 00:01:36.160
get one deer and that can pack your freezer you know for the whole winter and a good part of the

00:01:36.160 –> 00:01:40.280
end of the season. I know myself you’re up to you’re allowed actually in PA you’re allowed up

00:01:40.280 –> 00:01:44.920
to three dough tags. I only ever got one and I don’t have it you know been you’re allowed up to

00:01:44.920 –> 00:01:49.160
one buck. But like I said you know I you know when I was younger there was actually a dough season

00:01:49.160 –> 00:01:53.760
and they don’t have that anymore in PA. You have to actually get a permit. They say it’s a little

00:01:53.760 –> 00:01:59.400
bit better way of them controlling population and controlling all that but I don’t know I’m I kind

00:01:59.400 –> 00:02:02.440
of liked it when there was a dough season but they guess they said too many people were taking

00:02:02.440 –> 00:02:06.920
doughs out that out of the woods that’s why they have the dough permit. I don’t think it’s right

00:02:06.920 –> 00:02:11.880
that you get the three per you get the three you know the three for one person. I think everybody

00:02:11.880 –> 00:02:18.400
got one so you get one buck one dough and that’s enough. But you know archery season like I said is

00:02:18.400 –> 00:02:24.720
starting up this Saturday and let me tell you folks archery is archery is something I can sit

00:02:24.720 –> 00:02:28.560
here and probably do multiple podcasts on. I’ve been an archery hunter most of my life. I’m not

00:02:28.560 –> 00:02:33.680
not gonna lie I mean I’m a gun hunter I like to go on hunting but archery is really my thing and

00:02:33.680 –> 00:02:39.080
anybody that’ll tell you that will tell you knows me. Usually archery season is my go-to season.

00:02:39.080 –> 00:02:44.760
Usually I actually will take right after the rut happens I will usually right around time rut

00:02:44.760 –> 00:02:51.440
season I will usually take a week off and then go bow hunting a whole week. But I’m not sure I’ve

00:02:51.440 –> 00:02:55.120
been doing that this year I was actually out like I said last actually I was doing some traveling

00:02:55.120 –> 00:02:59.800
some of that so I don’t think I’ll be doing that this year but you know usually I do it’s one of

00:02:59.800 –> 00:03:05.000
my favorite seasons something I was like no orange you know the orange the first couple the first

00:03:05.000 –> 00:03:09.120
couple of weeks of bow season now the people out in the woods seem to be it’s a little there’s not

00:03:09.120 –> 00:03:13.640
as many people out in the woods you know there’s the people that are out in the woods are a little

00:03:13.640 –> 00:03:17.240
bit different sometimes than the people that are running gun seasons people seem to be a little

00:03:17.240 –> 00:03:22.680
more laid-back during archery season people aren’t as on top of each other it’s not that dense just

00:03:22.680 –> 00:03:26.400
seems to be a little bit better environment the first couple weeks above of archery season usually

00:03:26.400 –> 00:03:33.360
or so so right after that rut happens is usually when you can really get into archery season and

00:03:33.360 –> 00:03:38.520
and really and once after that rut happens then you can go ahead and that’s usually when you can

00:03:38.520 –> 00:03:43.200
rattle in the bucks and and all that kind of stuff you can you know make your your burrs and the

00:03:43.200 –> 00:03:49.040
trees and stuff like that and that’s usually right around the rut is your prime time you know you can

00:03:49.040 –> 00:03:55.420
use the you know the scent or the the the the actually well the urine and all that and you can

00:03:55.420 –> 00:03:59.320
actually you know really get a good opportunity in a book specific you know if it’s blowing down

00:03:59.320 –> 00:04:04.320
wind you know usually you can do pretty good with that you can actually buy the the actual

00:04:04.320 –> 00:04:08.680
urine I know it sounds terrible but you’re gonna see buy the urine up or actually know people that

00:04:08.680 –> 00:04:15.280
actually will get a dough and will actually save the urine I don’t go that far but you can actually

00:04:15.280 –> 00:04:20.560
do that I know a lot of guys that have actually done that I don’t well but I usually will just

00:04:20.560 –> 00:04:24.680
buy it that’s good enough for me but I do know quite a few guys that’ll actually go ahead and

00:04:24.680 –> 00:04:29.840
and and actually will actually get to get their dough and and then they’ll actually use the urine

00:04:29.840 –> 00:04:35.400
for the for you know taking the buck but I like I said I don’t really do that but you can do that

00:04:35.400 –> 00:04:40.360
if you like so one of the things that I have to point out folks one of the things that I said I’ve

00:04:40.360 –> 00:04:47.080
always said this is probably the most dangerous part of bow season is actually always the it’s

00:04:47.080 –> 00:04:50.760
always the tree stands you always hear horror stories about people in tree stands by the way

00:04:50.760 –> 00:04:56.520
this time of year folks I will say one thing I actually do climb but I will tell you this though

00:04:56.520 –> 00:05:01.520
if you’re gonna climb make sure you’re wearing a good harness not talking like a cheap $20 horse

00:05:01.520 –> 00:05:06.840
talking like a good harness safety harness obviously if you’re gonna use a climbing tree

00:05:06.840 –> 00:05:12.600
stand always make sure you’re buckled in and if you’re gonna put up a tree stand you really really

00:05:12.600 –> 00:05:18.400
really need to make sure that you’re up high on the you’re up not only remember one thing folks

00:05:18.400 –> 00:05:21.360
you’re in the tree stings you’re trying to stay above the scent line that’s the most important

00:05:21.360 –> 00:05:25.160
thing with this you want to be above the scent line so they don’t smell you and one of the things

00:05:25.160 –> 00:05:28.600
you’re gonna want to do with this folks remember it’s not like gun hunting so those of you that

00:05:28.600 –> 00:05:32.640
have never archery hunter before you’re gonna get really right on right on top of the animal

00:05:32.640 –> 00:05:38.240
within 20-30 yards and one of the things you want to make sure you do folks and if you’re gonna be

00:05:38.240 –> 00:05:42.600
putting up a tree stand you want to make sure folks that you get it you know at least make sure

00:05:42.600 –> 00:05:47.320
you pick a healthy tree and and make sure you have a tree that’s not you know not in bad shape

00:05:47.320 –> 00:05:52.600
it’s in good shape is a good healthy tree you’ll know it when you see it okay and that’s what you

00:05:52.600 –> 00:05:57.840
do you make sure folks that you get a good healthy tree and you put your tree stand up on it and then

00:05:57.840 –> 00:06:03.040
you’re actually going to be above the scent line and that’s really really important another thing

00:06:03.040 –> 00:06:06.720
too when you if you are going to be bow hunting they said you’re gonna be within 20-30 yards of

00:06:06.720 –> 00:06:12.480
them make sure you sight your bow in I see a lot of guys that they don’t really they go out and they

00:06:12.480 –> 00:06:16.400
buy their first bow and they don’t know they don’t say they don’t think time to sight it in they don’t

00:06:16.400 –> 00:06:21.560
take the time to practice with it they don’t take any of that time to really get that bow and and

00:06:21.560 –> 00:06:27.600
get it in get it right get it adjusted properly I recommend anywhere between 50 to 70 pounds on the

00:06:27.600 –> 00:06:33.080
pole that is completely up to you you’re gonna need when you go to an archery shop I’m not

00:06:33.080 –> 00:06:36.240
talking just field the shrimp you need to go to an archery shop there’s you can always find one

00:06:36.240 –> 00:06:41.760
online your local archer and they will actually adjust the bow for you they will set you up now

00:06:41.760 –> 00:06:47.160
there’s the bows have really changed a lot over the years since I first started usually I remember

00:06:47.160 –> 00:06:51.040
when I was a kid you always had the peephole and you look through the peephole and then look through

00:06:51.040 –> 00:06:56.640
the other part and it would uh get a good good view and that would be how you lined it up through

00:06:56.640 –> 00:07:04.080
your sights nowadays you have any they’re so advanced now you have laser sights I mean delicious

00:07:04.080 –> 00:07:10.840
goes on and on via laser sights you have all different kinds of bow arrow knocks and holders

00:07:10.840 –> 00:07:15.760
now and all that they’re really really different and now you have the mechanism as well the pulling

00:07:15.760 –> 00:07:20.360
mechanism that locks it back and all that so there’s there’s a lot of they really really

00:07:20.360 –> 00:07:24.720
changed and one thing to folks if you’re when you pick your like I said when you go and buy your bow

00:07:24.720 –> 00:07:31.080
you’re gonna have to make a decision what you want I recommend either getting a Hoyt or a PSE I like

00:07:31.080 –> 00:07:35.440
PSE a little bit better because they’re really really light and I find them they’re a little

00:07:35.440 –> 00:07:40.760
bit easier to get through the woods with your Hoyt bows I think they’re a little more for competition

00:07:40.760 –> 00:07:45.680
bows or a little bit heavier and I’m not really a huge fan of them I find them sometimes a little

00:07:45.680 –> 00:07:49.960
bit heavy little awkward but you’re gonna want to make you’re gonna want to go there you’re gonna

00:07:49.960 –> 00:07:52.960
go to an archery shop don’t buy it online this is something you actually really gonna have to go to

00:07:52.960 –> 00:07:57.680
a store because you this is something that’s going to be tailored for you okay it’s just like you know

00:07:57.680 –> 00:08:01.360
it’s not like just you going to buy any gun this is a piece of equipment that you’re going that’s

00:08:01.360 –> 00:08:04.560
gonna have to be tailored fit for you it’s got to be the right weight for you it’s gotta be the

00:08:04.560 –> 00:08:08.120
right pull for you it has to be the right knock for you not the knock of see where you put the

00:08:08.120 –> 00:08:13.320
arrow in the sights have to be right that everything’s gonna be set up it did your bow it a bow

00:08:13.320 –> 00:08:17.120
is not the kind of thing where somebody else can pick it up and use it it’s got to be one of those

00:08:17.120 –> 00:08:21.640
things that that’s really really really set up for you you know and obviously you have your all

00:08:21.640 –> 00:08:27.880
different kinds of arrows you have your your plastic arrows your fiber arrows your aluminum

00:08:27.880 –> 00:08:34.880
arrows I again that’s again that’s all gonna depend on you folks what you want to do you know what

00:08:34.880 –> 00:08:40.360
what what you’re comfortable with it’s all gonna depend on the arrow you get what kind of setup you

00:08:40.360 –> 00:08:46.080
want all that so just remember all that when you go to get that bow because it’s gonna be specifically

00:08:46.080 –> 00:08:52.640
set up for you and I mean the bow is something that if it’s not right you’re not gonna be not

00:08:52.640 –> 00:08:57.160
gonna be able to do it and the other thing too when you when you’re actually at the archery shop

00:08:57.160 –> 00:09:01.880
one of the things you’re gonna have to do folks is you’re gonna have to make a decision are you

00:09:01.880 –> 00:09:07.840
going to use a release which you hook on your your you know your string in the back pull and

00:09:07.840 –> 00:09:12.480
the weight will be most of the pull will be on your wrist and then when you line it up you pull

00:09:12.480 –> 00:09:17.480
the release lever and the lever releases and the arrow goes flying with the wire okay are you gonna

00:09:17.480 –> 00:09:21.480
use release or you’re gonna pull your fingers I will tell you this there are two it’s two

00:09:21.480 –> 00:09:29.680
different feelings using your fingers and using a and using a release are two different feelings

00:09:29.680 –> 00:09:35.200
okay it’s totally different the air it really this is something you’re gonna really have to decide

00:09:35.200 –> 00:09:40.680
what you want to do if you’re gonna be using a and knock that is actually with a brush knock where

00:09:40.680 –> 00:09:45.520
the arrow goes through one direction only okay you’re gonna want to probably use the release

00:09:45.520 –> 00:09:49.040
because that is gonna probably aim the arrow up when you release it’s gonna go right through the

00:09:49.040 –> 00:09:54.000
knock the arrow just goes right through the brush okay if you’re gonna be using one you know knock

00:09:54.000 –> 00:09:57.560
that you hold with your thumb and you you’re gonna buy into pull and release because they’re

00:09:57.560 –> 00:10:02.800
gonna have to coordinate your finger releases at the same time so very very important folks

00:10:02.800 –> 00:10:09.080
there’s a lot to know with this kind of thing and if you’re really really unsure make sure you talk

00:10:09.080 –> 00:10:14.680
to the right person also to folks by the way it is legal now for somebody who’s not disabled to

00:10:14.680 –> 00:10:18.880
hunt with a crossbow so that’s something else you gotta make it different I think of to defending

00:10:18.880 –> 00:10:24.000
look at the one thing to think of is what kind of tree stains you’re in are you able to pull do you

00:10:24.000 –> 00:10:28.200
have any shoulder issues you have okay if there’s something okay and I’m tell you one thing a

00:10:28.200 –> 00:10:34.840
definite crossbow versus a regular you know compound bow is gonna be totally different

00:10:34.840 –> 00:10:40.920
okay so you have really had to make a decision on what you want to do go try both now remember a

00:10:40.920 –> 00:10:46.800
couple of times they have outlawed the crossbow for archery hunters they’ve done it they’ve undone

00:10:46.800 –> 00:10:51.480
it they’ve done it they’ve undone it a couple times over okay so think about that when you

00:10:51.480 –> 00:10:54.720
buy your bow because it’s gonna be an investment okay you’re probably gonna spend a couple hundred

00:10:54.720 –> 00:10:59.160
bucks okay on a good one and I’m thinking I said get a hoyter PSE don’t get a no name and knock

00:10:59.160 –> 00:11:04.920
off okay get something good because if that string snaps on you okay you could you could really could

00:11:04.920 –> 00:11:09.320
hurt yourself okay but you have some serious injury so get a good bow don’t get a used one

00:11:09.320 –> 00:11:13.000
this is something you need to buy brand new I don’t say that very often on this podcast but

00:11:13.000 –> 00:11:19.640
this is a product you need to buy brand new okay and one of the things folks I want to point out

00:11:19.640 –> 00:11:26.240
to folks is that when you actually okay get your your bow and all that okay and you get your first

00:11:26.240 –> 00:11:31.720
kill okay you’re gonna be field dressing that deer okay now those you know we feel dressing

00:11:31.720 –> 00:11:36.000
what’s happening is once you take that animal okay you’re gonna have to gut you’re gonna have

00:11:36.000 –> 00:11:39.940
to gut that animal there leave the gut pile there okay don’t worry about the gut pile the

00:11:39.940 –> 00:11:46.000
coyote will eat it okay and make sure you clean out all the insides you can clean up the you know

00:11:46.000 –> 00:11:50.440
the guts the lungs the heart the liver you can keep that stuff you want to eat it some people

00:11:50.440 –> 00:11:55.800
like the heart liver and kidney I don’t okay and then you’re gonna want to make sure you clear out

00:11:55.800 –> 00:12:01.520
the you know anything that could be toxic to you you know your colon bag your rectum all that kind

00:12:01.520 –> 00:12:05.920
of stuff I know it sounds a little crazy but you got to make sure that deer is safe to eat okay you

00:12:05.920 –> 00:12:11.640
know what you need when you’re doing this okay the sharp knife okay get a good knife okay a buck

00:12:11.640 –> 00:12:15.600
buck knife is the best I will tell you this I swear by buck that’s the only thing I bring in

00:12:15.600 –> 00:12:23.440
with me when I go hunting is a buck knife you know that knife needs to be needs to be sharp okay let

00:12:23.440 –> 00:12:28.400
me tell you something okay you need a sharp knife okay and that brings me to our sponsor of the day

edge sharpening and that’s Richard he’s the official sponsor for today’s show okay and like

00:14:50.880 –> 00:14:56.000
I said folks unique make sure you get a good sharp knife because I’m telling you right now

00:14:56.000 –> 00:15:01.120
try cutting through that carcass and let me tell you it’s it’s a nightmare and a half if you don’t

00:15:01.120 –> 00:15:06.480
have a good knife okay also two folks by the way I’d like to point out as well with the knives

00:15:06.480 –> 00:15:11.240
you’re gonna get not only can you can only can you gut the animal okay they’re also in the back

00:15:11.240 –> 00:15:15.720
have a little hook okay that’s that’s actually you cut and you peel okay that’s the that’s your

00:15:15.720 –> 00:15:20.900
parrot your peeler okay makes getting the first remember one thing gonna have to cut through the

00:15:20.900 –> 00:15:28.080
skin then the muscle then the fat all right so that’s very very important okay get a good knife

00:15:28.080 –> 00:15:32.360
like I said buck is what I recommend they’re a little pricey I know they are expensive guys but

00:15:32.360 –> 00:15:35.880
you get get a good knife you get what you pay for in the plus two it’s a knife that you’ll have you

00:15:35.880 –> 00:15:39.720
can hand down to your kids and all that kind of stuff because they do last forever you get them

00:15:39.720 –> 00:15:45.140
sharpened all right you take care of it you take care of the tool tool takes care of you all right

00:15:45.140 –> 00:15:51.860
so like I said folks make sure that you get a good knife that’s one thing you’re gonna need your knife

00:15:51.860 –> 00:15:56.960
and your bow without those two things you’re in trouble also two folks I want to point out

00:15:56.960 –> 00:16:01.480
hunting gear okay now remember you’re not gun hunting you’re not gonna be a thousand

00:16:01.480 –> 00:16:06.640
yards away when you pull the trigger okay this animal is gonna be within 20 30 feet of you okay

00:16:06.640 –> 00:16:15.200
sometimes even 10 10 yards 20 yards I mean it’s a close okay so what I recommend all right those

00:16:15.200 –> 00:16:18.600
of you don’t have it you don’t need it to start but I recommend you get yourself a decent range

00:16:18.600 –> 00:16:24.980
finder a decent range finder okay online will run you probably yeah I would say probably maybe

00:16:24.980 –> 00:16:30.260
maybe 80 bucks hundred bucks okay now I’m not saying you have to have it but it’s something

00:16:30.260 –> 00:16:33.760
that I found very useful okay because remember you got three sites you’re gonna have your 10

00:16:33.760 –> 00:16:38.840
your 20 your 30 okay you’re gonna want to know how far away the animal is so you know to use

00:16:38.840 –> 00:16:47.720
the right the right site okay very very important all right make sure you use the right site so you

00:16:47.720 –> 00:16:54.040
don’t miss the other thing folks you’re gonna want to do okay get a pair of binoculars you don’t need

00:16:54.040 –> 00:16:59.620
an expensive pair you can get a cheap $10 bear okay let me tell you something when you’re bow

00:16:59.620 –> 00:17:03.520
hunting it’s not like gun hunting okay you’re gonna pry guarantee your first you’re gonna do

00:17:03.520 –> 00:17:07.100
when you get up in that tree so you’re gonna knock the arrow okay then you’re probably gonna set you

00:17:07.100 –> 00:17:11.600
know set yourself up where the bow is either hanging on a branch hanging on a hook whatever

00:17:11.600 –> 00:17:17.200
okay those binoculars can look out and tell you when something’s coming okay when you know

00:17:17.200 –> 00:17:20.200
something’s coming these switch over to your range find you’re gonna watch the range watch

00:17:20.200 –> 00:17:25.440
him come in watch him come in come in while follow him in once he gets the closer he gets

00:17:25.440 –> 00:17:29.800
if he looks he’s gonna veer off you know he’s not gonna come in as close if he’s at least 30

00:17:29.800 –> 00:17:37.060
at least 30 yards or so away 30 feet away you can take your shot okay but okay but I’m gonna tell

00:17:37.060 –> 00:17:43.080
you right now okay if you see him coming in and you try to take that shot at 30 sometimes even

00:17:43.080 –> 00:17:48.520
you know some guys I shoot 40 yards 50 yards away you can probably do maybe do that on a crossbow

00:17:48.520 –> 00:17:51.840
you’re not gonna be able to do that on a compound bow don’t even try you’re not gonna kill the

00:17:51.840 –> 00:17:56.120
animal or you’re just gonna wound it and scare it off okay and bow hunting remember is a game

00:17:56.120 –> 00:18:00.640
of patience you know a gun hunting when you see the animal you know how far your gun can show you

00:18:00.640 –> 00:18:04.640
shoot good hey a lot of times with bow hunting you’re gonna have to sit perfectly still and

00:18:04.640 –> 00:18:09.500
wait him out okay he’s probably gonna okay you have to okay you have to wait for it’s not like

00:18:09.500 –> 00:18:16.440
gun hunting okay so it’s totally different you’re gonna have to wait him out sometimes no thing it’s

00:18:16.440 –> 00:18:20.080
true you don’t want to get him startled so I strongly recommend those got you guys that are

00:18:20.080 –> 00:18:26.040
you know that aware you guys your hunting equipment and all that kind of stuff okay make sure you

00:18:26.040 –> 00:18:34.880
watch the stuff in a scent free wash and scent free soap okay when you do your laundry and you

00:18:34.880 –> 00:18:38.960
wash your hunting clothes separate you’re gonna put this this is scent free you can find it that’s

00:18:38.960 –> 00:18:43.600
like three four bucks for a container so pilot I’ve had the same bottle probably ten years you

00:18:43.600 –> 00:18:47.000
only use it to wash your hunting clothes once a year with it okay you’re gonna put that so you’re

00:18:47.000 –> 00:18:51.000
gonna wash the clothes and then you’re gonna take those clothes and you’re gonna air dry them

00:18:51.000 –> 00:18:56.960
outside on a line over the over the side of the porch whatever once they’re dry if you’re gonna

00:18:56.960 –> 00:19:02.800
bring them inside you’re gonna put them in a black plastic bag tie it up okay and you’re gonna let

00:19:02.800 –> 00:19:07.720
those clothes you sit outside – okay – you go outside and wear them are you gonna bring them

00:19:07.720 –> 00:19:12.320
inside let them sit in a room in a black plastic bag to keep the scent off them okay if they get a

00:19:12.320 –> 00:19:17.400
whiff of scent they will be gone remember yes you’re above the scent line but you can kick up

00:19:17.400 –> 00:19:22.840
you can kick up sense especially when you’re walking in okay when you are bow hunting you

00:19:22.840 –> 00:19:28.600
need to make sure you’re wearing rubber boots you’re good rubber hunting boots spray them down

00:19:28.600 –> 00:19:33.440
with scent free okay you can get the look you get the Canada stuff like three bucks okay spray your

00:19:33.440 –> 00:19:37.440
boots down with scent free after you before you walk into the woods okay it will help keep the

00:19:37.440 –> 00:19:42.820
scent down all right very very important you don’t want them to smell anything also to guys

00:19:42.820 –> 00:19:48.600
you know women may be not an issue but for guys if you’re gonna go a lot of guys like to shave

00:19:48.600 –> 00:19:54.160
before they go out don’t they’ll smell that aftershave they’ll smell like they’ll smell any

00:19:54.160 –> 00:19:58.780
of that stuff like they’ll smell the they actually will smell you know the stuff that’s on the razor

00:19:58.780 –> 00:20:04.680
the smell the you know the shaving cream they’ll smell all that stuff so guys I mean I hate to say

00:20:04.680 –> 00:20:10.480
this but don’t shave before you go out ladies I know you’re listening don’t shave anything legs

00:20:10.480 –> 00:20:16.560
nothing but okay because I’m telling you they will smell that stuff coming in even your toothpaste

00:20:16.560 –> 00:20:21.360
you should really use a scent free toothpaste I know this sounds a little nuts okay but you

00:20:21.360 –> 00:20:28.360
really should use a scent free toothpaste okay very important you can buy it you know honey

00:20:28.360 –> 00:20:31.180
so you’re not gonna find something like that at CVS but you can use it to scent free teeth

00:20:31.180 –> 00:20:37.480
wanna brush your teeth in the morning don’t use any hair gel hairspray anything like that on your

00:20:37.480 –> 00:20:42.400
hair in the morning when you shower the night before they actually do have a scent wash where

00:20:42.400 –> 00:20:47.800
you can wash yourself wash your hair and you know soap that’s scent free believe it or not if you

00:20:47.800 –> 00:20:52.160
if you know you you do you dial soap the night before when take a shower and you use you know

00:20:52.160 –> 00:20:56.200
whatever trust the man your hair what I do they’re gonna they can actually smell that so you’re

00:20:56.200 –> 00:21:01.120
gonna use a scent free soap and all that to wash yourself the night before I know it sounds a little

00:21:01.120 –> 00:21:06.400
ridiculous but trust me you are bow hunting these animals are going to get right up on top of you

00:21:06.400 –> 00:21:12.760
you cannot cannot have any scent on you they’ll still smell and they’ll be in the be gone or they

00:21:12.760 –> 00:21:15.920
won’t even do some of them if you’re supposed to be your downwind on a day we got to get your

00:21:15.920 –> 00:21:21.400
downwind they will and if they get a whiff of it or upwind I’m sorry if you’re upwind and they’re

00:21:21.400 –> 00:21:26.440
downwind that though they won’t even walk up on you though they’ll smell it so very all that stuff

00:21:26.440 –> 00:21:34.000
very very important I’m also two guys like I said I know it’s gonna sound a little ridiculous if

00:21:34.000 –> 00:21:39.520
you’re going to be up in the tree stand for a lot of hours make sure you bring something to pee into

00:21:39.520 –> 00:21:45.880
ladies I am I’m not sure exactly how you’re gonna handle this situation I’m sorry I’m a guy I have

00:21:45.880 –> 00:21:52.320
no idea but I know guys especially you they actually sell the scent free bottles and you can

00:21:52.320 –> 00:21:56.480
actually pee in them whatever you do I see guys stop all the time sounds a pee in the bottom of

00:21:56.480 –> 00:22:00.440
the tree before they climb up you might as well just hand that deer like you’re not gonna get

00:22:00.440 –> 00:22:05.600
anything that deer is gonna smell that walking up on you so if you actually are going to if you’re

00:22:05.600 –> 00:22:09.560
gonna actually like I said if you have to go to the bathroom you’re gonna pee into the jar and

00:22:09.560 –> 00:22:14.000
it actually holds the scent in close it put it back in the bed hunting bag so you don’t have to

00:22:14.000 –> 00:22:17.400
you know so they don’t smell any that because that’s that’s like a dead giveaway believe it or

00:22:17.400 –> 00:22:20.760
not I see a lot of guys make mistakes like that they come down from the tree go to the bathroom

00:22:20.760 –> 00:22:25.800
climb back up that the animals gonna smell that so very very important you’re they know the

00:22:25.800 –> 00:22:29.920
difference between your pee their pee all that stuff it believe it or not they know remember

00:22:29.920 –> 00:22:35.240
one thing folks when you are in the woods everything in the woods is natural I tell you I’ve been in

00:22:35.240 –> 00:22:40.120
the woods a couple times in my tree stand or even hiking or you know be just walking around do

00:22:40.120 –> 00:22:44.600
whatever and and and if you’re in a really not only like pure you know if you’re your home we

00:22:44.600 –> 00:22:49.240
have houses and all that’s a little bit different but if you’re in the in the woods like on state

00:22:49.240 –> 00:22:56.160
game land and somebody smoking upwind from you you will smell it because everything in the woods

00:22:56.160 –> 00:23:02.360
is natural and that’s not a natural smell and it blows right down when you smell it no problem so

00:23:02.360 –> 00:23:05.360
that’s another thing you got to be very very careful so that kind of stuff always make sure

00:23:05.360 –> 00:23:11.920
you know no smoking obviously none of that stuff but all remember the woods are natural most of the

00:23:11.920 –> 00:23:16.760
stuff we bring in the woods is not natural so you know it’s very important if you have to go to the

00:23:16.760 –> 00:23:21.360
bathroom in the woods like number two guys make sure you bring a shovel and bury it I know it

00:23:21.360 –> 00:23:27.560
sounds disgusting but you don’t want to leave any traces behind smell so that’s something very very

00:23:27.560 –> 00:23:31.520
important and the reason why the scents are so important guys is because the scent can linger

00:23:31.520 –> 00:23:35.560
for a couple of days so if you’re gonna be hunting that same spot two three days every time you get

00:23:35.560 –> 00:23:40.320
down on a tree stand you guys smell it’s a weird thing so the what you know you got to really make

00:23:40.320 –> 00:23:43.720
sure you cover up that scent and all that because if you’re gonna be hunting that spot a couple of

00:23:43.720 –> 00:23:50.600
days or even all season you know the only post I’m gonna tell you is if you are going to go hunting

00:23:50.600 –> 00:23:55.680
by the way on the state game lands two weeks prior to hunting season and two weeks after

00:23:55.680 –> 00:24:00.560
hunting season is over the tree stands must be removed I will tell you this if you are going to

00:24:00.560 –> 00:24:08.280
hunt on state game lands I strongly recommend that either use a climbing tree stand or you use either

00:24:08.280 –> 00:24:14.960
one with a ladder tree stand because they’re pretty cheap or somebody up here the climbing

00:24:14.960 –> 00:24:18.960
tree stand nice because you can climb up and then take it with you or clerk you climb down take it

00:24:18.960 –> 00:24:26.400
with you the climbing the the ladder tree stands aren’t really too expensive they’re like 150 bucks

00:24:26.400 –> 00:24:32.040
and not too bad but if you’re gonna be hunting on a state game and don’t use a really really

00:24:32.040 –> 00:24:36.340
pricey tree stand I’ll tell you folks I usually a state game that I usually use a climbing tree

00:24:36.340 –> 00:24:42.400
stand just because convenience to one and two bitches I had a lot of problems with people stealing

00:24:42.400 –> 00:24:45.960
my stuff my for my tree stands on game letter taking a part of my tree stand on because you

00:24:45.960 –> 00:24:49.640
know what’s on the game lands people think oh it’s here I’ll just use this one so that’s another

00:24:49.640 –> 00:24:52.600
thing you have to worry about on state lands I know they say you can chain them to the trees

00:24:52.600 –> 00:24:57.960
but you know the old saying locks keep the honest robber out so if you’re gonna be hunting on the

00:24:57.960 –> 00:25:03.720
state lands I really recommend don’t you think it’s a climbing tree stand or just a lot of times

00:25:03.720 –> 00:25:08.200
if I’m hunting on state games link game lands I will actually use a blind I know it’s not the most

00:25:08.200 –> 00:25:12.040
efficient thing in the world and I know it’s not really keep keeping you above the scent line but

00:25:12.040 –> 00:25:17.120
what I’ll do I’ll put the blind out and then I’ll spray it down with no scent and then what I’ll do

00:25:17.120 –> 00:25:21.880
I’ll get in the tree stand or in the tree stand in the blind and I’m obviously pretty scent free from

00:25:21.880 –> 00:25:25.680
all stuff I told you about and I’ve actually done pretty good in the blind I actually have had

00:25:25.680 –> 00:25:29.000
sometimes like if I have I’ve actually had a friend’s son with me or my daughter she’s went

00:25:29.000 –> 00:25:34.120
with me the kids especially really young really if they’re not familiar with climbing some of that

00:25:34.120 –> 00:25:38.360
and it’s not a safe this we have a one-person tree stand you can’t have two people up there so

00:25:38.360 –> 00:25:41.720
sometimes if I have like you know a little one with me or sometimes uh you know something like

00:25:41.720 –> 00:25:45.120
I’ll bring or something about buddy with me you know I want to talk over hanging you know what

00:25:45.120 –> 00:25:48.920
then we’ll get we’ll put the blind up on being the blind we’ve actually done pretty well with that

00:25:48.920 –> 00:25:52.720
all the blind is a little bit safer and some people don’t like to climb you may be somebody

00:25:52.720 –> 00:25:56.280
says I’m not climbing I don’t trust cheese chance I don’t trust trees I don’t you know I don’t like

00:25:56.280 –> 00:26:01.720
heights no whatever so you can use the blind you can get a blind for for I mean the good ones are

00:26:01.720 –> 00:26:06.640
gonna cost you but I actually got a tree actually have a blind I think I spent I think I spent like

00:26:06.640 –> 00:26:09.720
200 for that one which is a little bit pricey you can actually get them cheaper online I’ve seen

00:26:09.720 –> 00:26:15.520
them like one 150 you know it’s they unzip and all that some of them some of them are a little

00:26:15.520 –> 00:26:20.640
extravagant you know for me I you know I’m only out the day or so but if you’re actually in an

00:26:20.640 –> 00:26:24.200
area where you can actually leave your blind up I know a friend of mine if he hunts his own

00:26:24.200 –> 00:26:28.800
property mostly and he actually has a really nice blind they paid I think 500 for but but again you

00:26:28.800 –> 00:26:33.240
know it’s honest property it stays up all year long you can actually get one of them you know

00:26:33.240 –> 00:26:36.080
it really depends on you but if you’re gonna go sometimes you’re gonna go in state land like I

00:26:36.080 –> 00:26:40.560
said I usually climbing trees didn’t all bring the blind out and believe it or not sometimes folks

00:26:40.560 –> 00:26:46.480
believe it or not I’ve actually when I’ve actually went out sometimes I’ll just even land you know

00:26:46.480 –> 00:26:50.480
sit on the ground with the Billy’s with it with a ghillie suit on I’ve done that as well I get

00:26:50.480 –> 00:26:54.720
these suits aren’t expensive you can get a good one for like 50 75 bucks and you know they’re

00:26:54.720 –> 00:26:59.040
actually not too bad either folks you can actually get a ghillie suit you know and then they’re

00:26:59.040 –> 00:27:02.760
actually not too bad you can sit on the ground they’re pretty light to remember to you know

00:27:02.760 –> 00:27:07.840
hunting season around here starts like you know archeries like six weeks as the first from first

00:27:07.840 –> 00:27:13.640
week of October so Thanksgiving and you remember – it’s a little warmer it’s not as cold so you’re

00:27:13.640 –> 00:27:16.560
not gonna be wearing gloves and all that so something like that but you’ve got like an 80

00:27:16.560 –> 00:27:20.440
degree day and you’re out in the middle of the afternoon something like that could really you

00:27:20.440 –> 00:27:25.480
know really keep you kind of I’m sweating cuz remember – if you sweat you’re gonna smell – and

00:27:25.480 –> 00:27:28.640
they’re gonna still smell that so you want to think you want to look at the weather tonight

00:27:28.640 –> 00:27:33.600
before you go out and say okay well it’s gonna be 80 degrees tomorrow you know maybe I’ll just wear

00:27:33.600 –> 00:27:38.920
a ghillie suit or maybe I’ll wear a t-shirt and you know and long pants and the boots and I’ll

00:27:38.920 –> 00:27:43.560
just you know the boots should always be rubber no matter what but you know you want to make sure

00:27:43.560 –> 00:27:46.800
you don’t sweat so you and again you know it’s depending on where you are I know both see

00:27:46.800 –> 00:27:50.920
especially out west especially you know you’re going out in the sun is gonna be 100 degrees out

00:27:50.920 –> 00:27:54.720
so you want to you know take the weather into consideration always bring I always tell everybody

00:27:54.720 –> 00:27:58.080
if you’re gonna go hunting especially here in Pennsylvania always bring rain gear I usually

00:27:58.080 –> 00:28:02.560
bring like a camo poncho and I’ll just throw it over myself if it starts raining or something

00:28:02.560 –> 00:28:05.720
that I was you know especially if I’m sitting there a lot of times I’ll bring a chair and just

00:28:05.720 –> 00:28:08.360
sit especially if I’m only gonna be out a couple hours I’m not gonna worry about bringing to the

00:28:08.360 –> 00:28:12.440
climbing tree stand and all that I’ll just sit in the chair with the bow knocked and just sit there

00:28:12.440 –> 00:28:17.520
and you know relax a little bit I mean if I get something I get something doing a no but very you

00:28:17.520 –> 00:28:20.640
know again it’s one of those kinds of thing you’re gonna need to know what you’re doing you know

00:28:20.640 –> 00:28:24.760
what you know where you’re gonna do one thing I will tell you though folks is if you are gonna

00:28:24.760 –> 00:28:30.960
be doing a lot of stuff on the ground the compound bone should work compound bush work really nicely

00:28:30.960 –> 00:28:36.280
some people I will tell you though will like a couple of my buddies that use the blinds sometimes

00:28:36.280 –> 00:28:40.280
it can be a little bit awkward with a compound bow you may want to think about a crossbow you

00:28:40.280 –> 00:28:45.000
know depending on what you’re doing almost too if you’re gonna be in any type of good old buddy

00:28:45.000 –> 00:28:49.640
of mine he’s got quite a bit he’s got a hundred acres and he has you know all tree stands on it

00:28:49.640 –> 00:28:54.560
and they’re the ones of the roof on them I know sometimes when I go to shoot getting the compound

00:28:54.560 –> 00:28:58.280
bow splice can really be tough you have to either open the door or something like that a lot of times

00:28:58.280 –> 00:29:03.560
what I’ll actually do I’ll actually bring I’ll see use the compound bow I just heard of the crossbow

00:29:03.560 –> 00:29:07.200
because sometimes shooting at the window the crossbow you can’t turn really shoot you know

00:29:07.200 –> 00:29:11.280
you see in the movies where Robin Hood shoots the crossbow sideways or the bow side doesn’t work that

00:29:11.280 –> 00:29:17.760
way you can’t really shoot a compound bow or regular bow sideways so you could mean it’s not

00:29:17.760 –> 00:29:21.640
you could but it’s not gonna be accurate you’re not gonna kill anything so a lot of times if I’m

00:29:21.640 –> 00:29:25.760
going to one of those strands I’ll just bring the bring the crossbow with me and and that seems to

00:29:25.760 –> 00:29:31.400
work pretty well you know you’ll adapt it as you’ve got some experience you know you’ll learn you

00:29:31.400 –> 00:29:35.040
know what really works for you what doesn’t work for you where’s a good spot where’s not a good

00:29:35.040 –> 00:29:41.080
spot I strongly recommend folks to especially with bow hunting bow hunting is really an art

00:29:41.080 –> 00:29:45.280
and then gun hunting is difficult too but I think a bow hunting is a lot more it’s really more about

00:29:45.280 –> 00:29:49.360
the hunt because remember with with with a bow remember one thing folks when you’re shooting with

00:29:49.360 –> 00:29:53.360
the bow you know you’re going for a blood kill you know you’re gonna hit the animal it’s gonna

00:29:53.360 –> 00:29:58.800
bleed out and it’s gonna die whereas the when you’re doing a you know gun hunting you’re shooting

00:29:58.800 –> 00:30:03.320
and it’s ripping through the animal it’s gonna probably you know it’s doing blunt force trauma

00:30:03.320 –> 00:30:08.920
so it’s a little bit different so one of these that you recommend is is you can get yourself

00:30:08.920 –> 00:30:12.520
and I’ve said this a million times you don’t have to spend a lot of money on hunting gear it depends

00:30:12.520 –> 00:30:17.680
on how much you want to spend what I usually tell everybody to do is if you know where you’re true

00:30:17.680 –> 00:30:23.520
you want to put your tree stand you really should put the tree stand there and put the scout camera

00:30:23.520 –> 00:30:28.280
there and and just see what goes by a lot of times too what I’ll be doing probably about a

00:30:28.280 –> 00:30:34.640
month before bow is in starts I’ll put a scout cam out and and just see what comes by you know

00:30:34.640 –> 00:30:38.240
and just see what I get I mean sometimes I get you know and that that’s a good way of knowing

00:30:38.240 –> 00:30:42.360
what kind of spot you’re gonna have one year I and let me tell you some to folks I would like

00:30:42.360 –> 00:30:47.800
to point out to that while trail cams and scout cams are great and I really enjoy putting them

00:30:47.800 –> 00:30:51.240
up and I love seeing what I get regardless of other hunting or not I really like to see the

00:30:51.240 –> 00:30:57.240
wildlife and I really do enjoy the outdoors one of the things I will tell you that is is that you

00:30:57.240 –> 00:31:02.040
can put that scout cam up and and you can go back once a week and get the video or the picture

00:31:02.040 –> 00:31:07.440
whatever you choose to buy and nobody folks scout camps can go from 50 bucks to like a thousand

00:31:07.440 –> 00:31:13.760
bucks so one thing I will tell you though I guess it folks if you if you’re gonna put the scout cam

00:31:13.760 –> 00:31:17.700
they’re gonna go back everywhere we can get your stuff every four or five days usually I will tell

00:31:17.700 –> 00:31:22.740
you though that if you are gonna do that eventually the animals patterns will change I’ll tell you why

00:31:22.740 –> 00:31:27.480
one from you walking in the woods if you’re only disturbing it once a week you should be okay but

00:31:27.480 –> 00:31:33.280
once once bow bow season really starts it really kicks off especially after the rut and there’s a

00:31:33.280 –> 00:31:38.480
lot of people in the woods the animals patterns are gonna change so while that while you’re gonna

00:31:38.480 –> 00:31:45.560
see what’s walking by it may not if everyone may not be there all the following week so that’s

00:31:45.560 –> 00:31:51.640
something folks to to really remember and really think about when you’re actually putting up your

00:31:51.640 –> 00:31:56.840
scout cam you know especially you know once you start getting that she wants you to really getting

00:31:56.840 –> 00:32:01.040
heavy in the woods with people I will tell you this folks there is there is a second archery

00:32:01.040 –> 00:32:06.640
season by the way folks I don’t know this that is actually after but that’s actually at the end it’s

00:32:06.640 –> 00:32:12.000
just the last season after buck season and you can actually go in and that is actually the time in

00:32:12.000 –> 00:32:15.640
Pennsylvania I don’t know how it is in every state but I know in Pennsylvania that is actually the

00:32:15.640 –> 00:32:22.960
one time where you can go into the season you can use your buck tag as a doe tag but I will tell you

00:32:22.960 –> 00:32:28.200
this I have gone out that second part of the season after gun season with my with an archery

00:32:28.200 –> 00:32:34.880
badge and my archery license and I will tell you yeah I can you can use your buck tag as a doe tag

00:32:34.880 –> 00:32:38.840
the second part’s four weeks first of all when you’re out there it’s really bitter cold compared

00:32:38.840 –> 00:32:44.240
to the you know you’re out there you know in January where you were out there in October so

00:32:44.240 –> 00:32:48.880
it is really cold and I will tell you that that part of the season especially after you’ve had

00:32:48.880 –> 00:32:55.600
you know archery black powder you know a gobbler you’ve had you know another round of buck of the

00:32:55.600 –> 00:33:02.800
round of gun but time you get out there the the deer pretty well picked out you can’t I mean I’ve

00:33:02.800 –> 00:33:05.840
gotten lucky I’m not gonna lie I’ve gotten lucky out there I usually like I said usually get my

00:33:05.840 –> 00:33:11.000
deer by the end of the first doe season but no the end of the first archery season excuse me my doe

00:33:11.000 –> 00:33:17.480
or my buck but I have gone out the second part when I didn’t have a doe tag I’ve actually gone

00:33:17.480 –> 00:33:21.320
out the second part of archery where I can actually use my buck tag as a doe tag and I have

00:33:21.320 –> 00:33:27.160
gone out and I have actually done pretty well so like I said it’s not something I mean it’s not

00:33:27.160 –> 00:33:30.480
something I would recommend like saying okay well I’ll just wait to the end of the season to do it

00:33:30.480 –> 00:33:35.600
but it is something where if you haven’t filled a tag and you really do need to meet you can go

00:33:35.600 –> 00:33:39.360
out like I said the last I think it’s in January I think it’s the end I think it’s like the end of

00:33:39.360 –> 00:33:43.840
middle of first the middle of January it’s rather than the new year things it’s like later and it’s

00:33:43.840 –> 00:33:47.840
either the first week or January or later in January in February but it is like I said it

00:33:47.840 –> 00:33:53.000
you know you can’t actually use the tag then if you have one extra like I said I have gone out and

00:33:53.000 –> 00:33:56.160
I’ve gotten lucky but usually by that part of the season they’re usually the deer usually picked

00:33:56.160 –> 00:34:00.840
pretty clean also to folks I want to point out to if you look at the weather to before you go out

00:34:00.840 –> 00:34:06.120
look not only so you have the appropriate gear to go out with but also to folks I’ve been hunting

00:34:06.120 –> 00:34:13.880
most of my life and I will tell you that come if you get a really rough day with a lot of wind a

00:34:13.880 –> 00:34:20.960
lot of noise in the woods a lot of rain a lot of this the deer just don’t move I mean honestly

00:34:20.960 –> 00:34:26.400
folks I’ve been I’ve gone out almost every weather you can imagine if you get a really really really

00:34:26.400 –> 00:34:34.080
bitter cold day you know the rain it’s raining it’s windy you know the leaves are rustling on

00:34:34.080 –> 00:34:39.840
the trees the you know you hear the know every time the wind howl you hear the trees moving on

00:34:39.840 –> 00:34:45.240
they’re not gonna move they’re just not I’ve sat out there for hours and a couple times I

00:34:45.240 –> 00:34:50.680
remember forget I sat in a tree stand for a good couple hours froze with the wind got a little

00:34:50.680 –> 00:34:57.720
seasick in the tree moving around and I climbed down and I walked walked back to the walk back

00:34:57.720 –> 00:35:02.800
and as I’m walking back you can see a bunch of deer just just bedded down and in the brush so

00:35:02.800 –> 00:35:07.920
it’s one of those things folks where you know what you’re gonna do you’re gonna have to you’re gonna

00:35:07.920 –> 00:35:12.920
really you know you’ll gain experience as you’re out there I will tell you this though folks when

00:35:12.920 –> 00:35:16.600
you go to shoot at your first deer you you know you’re gonna be excited on that you have to try

00:35:16.600 –> 00:35:21.320
to calm yourself down because I know myself first time I ever saw the deer I was like you know it’s

00:35:21.320 –> 00:35:24.840
been for I’m still like that now is an adult first first year I see the season that goes better tree

00:35:24.840 –> 00:35:28.880
stand you get really excited and you’re you know your hands are shaking a little bit you’re excited

00:35:28.880 –> 00:35:34.040
you’re ready like you know that we I mean you know the kill only lasts a couple seconds it’s the you

00:35:34.040 –> 00:35:38.680
know the the build up to it that’s really what hunters live for and you know it’s one of those

00:35:38.680 –> 00:35:42.120
things where you’re gonna be in the woods and you’re gonna be like you know great gearing up

00:35:42.120 –> 00:35:46.440
and all and and you know so it’s one of those things we have to try to keep yourself calm and

00:35:46.440 –> 00:35:50.320
I know believe me I know it’s hard I’m an adult and I know it’s hard I mean I’m doing this most

00:35:50.320 –> 00:35:53.600
my life and I still do it sometimes so you’re gonna you know it’s one of those things you’re

00:35:53.600 –> 00:35:57.720
gonna have to try to sit and just you know look and say okay I got a calm got to stay relaxed

00:35:57.720 –> 00:36:03.000
you know and you can go from there so it is one of those things like I said so just just remember

00:36:03.000 –> 00:36:06.920
that when you’re gearing up it’s gonna you know and especially oh my god especially if you have

00:36:06.920 –> 00:36:10.880
a young one with you it’s either first time hunting or it’s the first time being out just

00:36:10.880 –> 00:36:15.320
got his license and that you know it’s your mentor tag that’s oh my god they’re gonna be the first

00:36:15.320 –> 00:36:19.680
time they see you do a shoot out there I mean you know they’re gonna be you know it’s almost I mean

00:36:19.680 –> 00:36:25.000
it’s normal it’s a you know it’s normal it’s a very you know thing for a boy say a pretty buddy

00:36:25.000 –> 00:36:29.400
boy girl whatever thing you know I see your first deer first chance to make the kill first chance I

00:36:29.400 –> 00:36:34.640
mean it’s it’s a it’s a big thing so you know but the main thing with them is to keep them calm tell

00:36:34.640 –> 00:36:40.520
you know and even yourself just a calm cool collected I actually had a guy I was teaching

00:36:40.520 –> 00:36:44.320
once I went used to go bow hunting and he was an excellent shot amazing with the ball by the way

00:36:44.320 –> 00:36:50.560
and he actually actually went out I said to him I said you’re always so calm and ready he goes well

00:36:50.560 –> 00:36:55.400
what I do I do jumping jacks before I practice he goes I do 10 jumping jacks I’ll shoot a bunch of

00:36:55.400 –> 00:36:58.920
arrows and I’ll go get him and I do 10 more to shoot it and that’s him because he said he cuz I

00:36:58.920 –> 00:37:04.200
know when I see that deer that I’m gonna be hyper and it’s those way it prepares me for what I’m

00:37:04.200 –> 00:37:09.440
gonna be like when I shoot I said that’s actually is a really good idea actually so I mean that’s

00:37:09.440 –> 00:37:13.680
like I said that you know something to think about you know by the way folks like you know and I want

00:37:13.680 –> 00:37:16.640
to point out to you before you put your you know you’re gonna be out in the woods gonna be there’s

00:37:16.640 –> 00:37:21.680
gonna be Sun there’s gonna be weather it’s gonna be they sell a wax you should really wax up the

00:37:21.680 –> 00:37:27.440
that string and a bow because what’s gonna happen is that’s gonna sit probably a good part of the

00:37:27.440 –> 00:37:31.160
summer unless you’re somebody takes it out and use it like I do during this during the summer for

00:37:31.160 –> 00:37:35.240
target practice and I’m part of a league too so you’re gonna make sure before you go every time

00:37:35.240 –> 00:37:39.800
put that away or before you go out with it or reading always always take the take time to take

00:37:39.800 –> 00:37:44.160
the wax and just wax that up you don’t do it every time but I would recommend doing it probably at

00:37:44.160 –> 00:37:47.480
least at least every time it’s during the season anyway before you put it away for this you know

00:37:47.480 –> 00:37:51.960
for the one you know for the summer always make sure you use the wax and wax it up because that

00:37:51.960 –> 00:37:56.200
string I mean like I said string is there’s a lot of tension on there and if that goes not only can

00:37:56.200 –> 00:38:02.360
it damage you but it will damage the the equipment as well so something to maintain maintenance is a

00:38:02.360 –> 00:38:06.720
big thing a lot of these place by the way folks these archery shops I’ve noticed a couple of them

00:38:06.720 –> 00:38:10.560
that have been to around here do it I’m not sure where it is for how you guys are obviously but I

00:38:10.560 –> 00:38:15.760
know around here where if you actually go to the archery shop I’ll ride around but pretty about

00:38:15.760 –> 00:38:19.840
the ready to go off you know any time could you look this over they’ll take a look but they have

00:38:19.840 –> 00:38:23.200
a machine they can put it on and all that kind of stuff it it’ll check everything make sure he’s

00:38:23.200 –> 00:38:27.800
okay and all that also two books by the way I like to point out to if you’re gonna you know if you’re

00:38:27.800 –> 00:38:30.880
banging it around some of that you’re out there change your sights might get a little out so you

00:38:30.880 –> 00:38:35.320
might want to cite it in maybe every season or two I always recommend that even you know remember

00:38:35.320 –> 00:38:39.040
this thing is a weapon I mean that’s what it is I mean it’s gonna kill something I point that out

00:38:39.040 –> 00:38:42.040
to I’ve actually talked to them talk to my kids and all that about that too I see you know they

00:38:42.040 –> 00:38:46.000
say all time well it’s just a bow it doesn’t matter it kills something well it’s not a gun

00:38:46.000 –> 00:38:51.080
it doesn’t matter it’s still a weapon that will be used to kill something so make sure you bring

00:38:51.080 –> 00:38:55.200
that up with anybody who’s who you’re bow hunting with you have to see a little sloppy or something

00:38:55.200 –> 00:38:59.000
like that maybe you know let them know because that that’s something you’re they really need

00:38:59.000 –> 00:39:03.800
to know that you know I mean yes it’s not a gun but it still isn’t a weapon that kills somebody

00:39:03.800 –> 00:39:09.160
I’m also two folks I would like to point out to oh when you’re getting your arrows by the way I

00:39:09.160 –> 00:39:12.800
like to point this out I really I forgot to mention this earlier if you’re going when you

00:39:12.800 –> 00:39:17.760
get your arrows there’s a couple of a bunch of different broad heads you know they’re the ones

00:39:17.760 –> 00:39:22.720
that are like a triangle or you have those or you have the actual broad heads that I like that you

00:39:22.720 –> 00:39:28.000
actually screw on and then when they when they hit hit the animal they open up and and do the damage

00:39:28.000 –> 00:39:33.960
or you have a cup there’s a bunch of different type of broads heads be aware whatever you pick

00:39:33.960 –> 00:39:39.600
when you use the practice arrows you’re gonna be used the practice tips but there’s nothing basically

00:39:39.600 –> 00:39:44.600
to them just a little nub at the top once you add that broads head to that there’s gonna be a real

00:39:44.600 –> 00:39:50.040
weight difference to it so if you’re gonna be practicing I recommend getting the brook getting

00:39:50.040 –> 00:39:55.240
some broads heads and you know practicing shooting the target with the broads heads that you’re gonna

00:39:55.240 –> 00:39:59.320
use whatever you feel more comfortable there’s a bunch of different kinds by the way you know so

00:39:59.320 –> 00:40:04.000
make sure you prep because there is gonna be a weight difference on that bow that you’re not

00:40:04.000 –> 00:40:09.400
going to they’re not gonna have with the practice tips and whether I want to point out folks to

00:40:09.400 –> 00:40:15.720
their practice tips or a razor tips or a broads heads when you go out hunting you must make sure

00:40:15.720 –> 00:40:23.120
that you have the right tips on those arrows and I’ll tell you why okay folks because you’re going

00:40:23.120 –> 00:40:27.200
to get the razor tips you have the practice tips you have broads head tips you have a bunch of

00:40:27.200 –> 00:40:34.120
tips you have tips for rabbits tips for small game tips for turkeys tips for you know large game

00:40:34.120 –> 00:40:38.960
you’re gonna want to make sure because I will tell you this if you get caught walk in the woods

00:40:38.960 –> 00:40:44.600
and I’m today it might be you know even if it’s an accident you get caught with one arrow that’s

00:40:44.600 –> 00:40:49.960
not the right kind of tip you can actually get quite a bit of trouble with the game warden so

00:40:49.960 –> 00:40:54.040
just remember that always make sure that you have the right tips and all that stuff when you’re

00:40:54.040 –> 00:40:57.800
getting ready to go out also two folks will be careful when you’re walking the woods to those

00:40:57.800 –> 00:41:02.080
broad heads that you know a lot of these things have the knocks on the side or the the holders

00:41:02.080 –> 00:41:06.320
in the side you put the broads heads on you’re walking with the broads head and you can really

00:41:06.320 –> 00:41:10.100
whack your leg pretty good they actually do sell covers and I know this from experience you put the

00:41:10.100 –> 00:41:14.520
covers on and can protect you from getting a free nasty cut on your fingers or on your hands

00:41:14.520 –> 00:41:19.720
especially because I mean you only usually one arrow I mean one maybe two the most you’re walking

00:41:19.720 –> 00:41:22.840
in with a couple arrow and a couple of broads heads and those these are razors I mean they

00:41:22.840 –> 00:41:27.120
I mean they’re gonna go through something and I mean you can just like shush kebab yourself on one

00:41:27.120 –> 00:41:30.360
of them so they do sell the covers as well I recommend those especially if you have small kids

00:41:30.360 –> 00:41:36.120
guys or anybody young and maybe mentored now you may be bringing into the woods with you I recommend

00:41:36.120 –> 00:41:40.480
you know making sure that the covers or even when I tell sometimes to I’ll even have the kids just

00:41:40.480 –> 00:41:44.400
keeping the case and you can take it out of the case when we get to the stand just make it safer

00:41:44.400 –> 00:41:49.600
for the equipment safe for them more than anything else but say for the equipment safer for everybody

00:41:49.600 –> 00:41:54.640
in the long run when it comes to stuff like that so just something else to think about as well if

00:41:54.640 –> 00:41:58.880
you’re gonna you know if you’re have somebody you’re gonna bring it in the woods with you by the way

00:41:58.880 –> 00:42:03.960
folks like I said it’s the main thing is to gear up and be practiced and ready to go it’s a lot of

00:42:03.960 –> 00:42:08.920
fun arteries by my favorite season of the year I’ve been going out so I was a kid for archery

00:42:08.920 –> 00:42:12.720
it’s my favorite time of the year things I love going out I’ll go out every archery season and

00:42:12.720 –> 00:42:17.720
but it is something to remember even though it is a bow and it’s still a weapon so be very careful

00:42:17.720 –> 00:42:25.400
