#4810 Kids bowfishing at night video

Looks like a great time. I'd rather watch a newer shooter kill 10 fish than shoot 100 myself.


#4418 I think I hear crickets

Haha I'm not quite sure I would sit in 0 degrees for ducks yet. Maybe 34 not 0. By the time they fly in my hands are so cold I can't take my gloves off to shoot. Lol

I'll do a lot for a duck. Sat out in the snow earlier this week. Paid off though...got my limit of mallards pretty quick. My hands are pretty well immune to the cold now. I don't ever wear gloves except when setting or picking decoys.

#3887 trouble with certian shots

Posted by NuffDaddy on 14 July 2013 - 07:11 PM

6' down is a tough shot for even a veteran shooter.
I seldom shoot that deep but I'd say I hit 1 or 2 for 10 when they are that far down. The best way to learn that is to take a 2 liter bottle and fill it full of sand. Tie a rope around the neck with a buoy on the other end so you can retrieve it. Put it in about 3' of water and shoot at it. If you miss, tighten your line but leave the arrow stuck in the bottom. Look down the string and notice how much it bends when it hits the water. That is from the diffraction of light when it hits the waters surface. Fish are actually closer to you than they appear. The geneal rule is about 4" for every foot down, but in varies. Now back to the 2 liter...odds are you missed a foot or more high. Wind your arrow up and aim lower and repeat untill you can hit the bottle 50% of the time. Them move to 6' of water and repeat. For this deep you will need to aim close to 2' low if not more. Practice makes perfect.


#3865 How to tie on an arrow with AMS safety slide

Awesome thanks

No problem. I'm not sure what kind of line they use on spinner reels...I've only ever used a retriever. Should work basically the same...might just be a little harder to get undone if the line is thinner.


#3740 General knowledge for hunting Carp

Posted by NuffDaddy on 30 June 2013 - 06:36 PM

I'm from MI, so a lot of this might not apply to you, but I'm gonna give you what USUALLY works around here.

Pre-spawn
Water temps will be in the 50s or cooler. Fish will be staring up larger rivers and staging in large schools on the edge of bigger lakes near weed beds and mudflats.

Spawn
Usually starts when water temps get into the 60s. Fish will be up small shallow ditches, along the shorelines of larger rivers, and in shallow shorelines of big lakes. It's not uncommon to find fish in 3"- 4" of water. They will be rolling and splashing and will be easy to spot. If you get a cold stretch, or the fish just don't seem active on a given day, they will be in 1 of 2 spots...usually NOT both. They will either be as far in shallow as they can get and they will just sit and not move. I've killed many carp walking in 3" of water through cattails over my head. Walk slow and keep your eyes open. They will sit still until you step in them. If you see 1 there will usually be a couple more within a couple feet. If they aren't there, then revert back to where you were finding them during the pre-spawn on the outside of weed beds.

Post spawn
Fish may take a little more time to find. Could still be in the shallow weed beds rooting for food, or they might be back out cruising the edge of the shallows. Just gotta hunt for em, and once you see one there will most likely be more in the same area.


#3722 Any waterfowl hunters??

Posted by NuffDaddy on 28 June 2013 - 03:02 AM

SagNASTY huh? I live right by Grand Valley haha. I have a friend that lives over here, but decided to go there??? Good luck though, getting an education is very important these days!

Yup. :lol: I like the university, but I stay as far from the city as possible. I live on the north side of Bay City.
Hopefully I can do something with a degree when I'm done. Not a lot of work around right now.

I do mostly night shooting now, but I'm shooing in the Great Lakes Bowfishing Championship next weekend and that's 15 hours of daytime shooting over 2 days. Heading out there Sunday for a practice daytime shoot.

Other than that I really don't know. You could ask at a couple boat places. You probably don't really need a boat trailer either. A flat bed trailer might work even better.
