    bluecat started a thread fleshing beam in Podunk Corner
    Decided to try and process my own hides. My brother ties flies so I thought I could give him a lifetime supply of deer hair. Didn't know what to do so I started digging around on the web and found you need a fleshing beam and a fleshing knife. I didn't have either so I ordered a knife and read where you can use a mower blade if you had to. Time was ticking and couldn't let the hide sit for very long so I gave it a try using the mower blade and a 2x6 piece of wood. It worked but it was messy, frustrating and inefficient. I saw where you could make a fleshing beam out of pvc and some scrap wood. Received my knife and tried out both the new knife and pvc beam on the same hide. It cleaned it up nicely and was easy to use. PVC is a great material because you want a smooth surface. The fleshing beam breaks apart for easy storage. Pretty slick. Hope to try and do some more post processing in the future.

    My Rocky pack has some seam problems with it so I'm having to make my decision quicker than I had anticipated. I can't fault the pack, it's been faithful for 20+ years. I bought an Eberlestock X2 with an internal frame. Will get a chance to use it this weekend. I can say this, it is well built and feels fantastic. I've always wanted a framed pack so here we go.

    I appreciate your input. I think what I need to do this winter is pick a really cold day and go out and shoot a bit at some targets to determine if it's release or loop or me. (Scott Wildcat single caliper)

    There was a buck that came by earlier that was nicer. I missed and thankfully did not wound him. When I clicked the release, the arrow did not leave right away (maybe half a second). There was just enough delay to move the bow and miss the deer (not on purpose though). Now the interesting thing is that this happened twice last year on deer. Point, Click and Shi#. At first I blamed the release. Checked it for grass seeds and whatnot. Functioned perfectly. So after the missed buck on Monday, my confidence was gone. I sat there pulling the string back a few inches to try and get the release to fail. It did not. I then got out a spare release from my pack. I made a mental note that whatever was happening I needed to punch it (which I'm not used to doing or want to do). I'd used the release in the summer without incident. Then it dawned on me that all three misses were missed under 10 degrees. I thought maybe the string loop had stiffened up so that it wasn't exiting through the calipers - even though my releases are single caliper releases. The string loop was complimentary and was put on by the bow shop when I changed string. It's not the loop brand I normally use. Has anyone heard of anything like this? I'm still not sure what is happening. I don't think I've developed the yips.

    When we loaded him in the truck it was a balmy 1 degree with wind. He was shot in North Central Nebraska on Veteran's Day. It had just snowed which helped in the trailing. The little brown mark on it's side is the broadhead beneath the skin. So, high entry and no exit meant about a teaspoon of blood for a 100 yards. Luckily it had snowed and I was able to watch where he went into the woods. He expired pretty quickly as I had gotten lung. Nice out-of-focus picture to remember him by. My phone would not work as it was so cold so my friend took these pics. Argg. Decided to take a picture of a spike that was nosing around earlier when my phone was working. Notice it is in focus.

    I wish their website had some clearer pictures on how the quiver is attached.

    Anybody have a quiver that's worth mentioning? The one I have is a two-piece. I like them because it doesn't mess with the site. But this pos only grabs the arrows on one-end and then uses the arrow in the foam as the second attachment point. The hood doesn't even cover all of the broadhead. So the arrow is constantly loose and you have to be careful not to cut yourself. Outstanding

    It's a simple question of weight ratios.
