    Hunting arrows

    The whole system is important as said by Skinner above. Arrow length, draw weight and point weight. Arrow spine is one of the most important parts of great arrow flight and many people ignore it, then wonder why they cant get great accuracy. I am here to help anytime.

    Markhor....what's the big deal?

    Hutch, I dont know either, i just dont find them appealing to the eye. You sound like the type of guy who is very fond of goats. Im not sure you are aware but there are several subspecies so not all have a true ribbon style horn as you say. My dislike of them has nothing to do with grouchy, if...

    Markhor....what's the big deal?

    Agreed. I hunted Red Stag and Mouflon last year with Acornland hunts. I booked the Gredos Ibex hunt shortly after my return home.

    Markhor....what's the big deal?

    I am going after Gredos in January. I guess i'm not really explaining my question/statement. Lots of people seem to see Markhor as the "holy grail" of hunting. To me, there are a lot prettier animals and prettier places to hunt (like BC for your goat hunt). To each his own, i just don't...

    Markhor....what's the big deal?

    I will start off by saying I enjoy all hunting and would never criticize or otherwise be negative about someone's choice in hunting. That being said, I don't get why hunting Markhor is so cool? The animal itself looks like a stinky goat to me (you know they have to smell awful), the...

    Have any of you guys seen or hunted with Air bows before?

    Not a bow at all. Not interesting at all to me. Crossbows are bad enough, this new contraption is even worse.

    Conventions: DSC / SCI - as attendee: which one and why?

    Ive been to both numerous times and ill choose SCI over DSC every tine. SCI event is just so much neater. More taxidermy, more and better vendors, etc. id be careful judging on the posts above as a majority of them seem to be local to the event which i understand. Pound for pound thougb, SCI...

    Who sits in a blind every day?

    You most likely wont sit in the blind all day anyhow. Almost all operators have take a mid day break from the blind which you could use to drive around and spot game. The other thing is african animals are not like north american animals, you wont find them out at waterholes at daylight...

    Pet peeves?

    Anyone have any pet peeves when talking about hunting africa? A few of mine are: 1. When visiting hunters call africans "natives". 2. When hunters in south africa call hunting farms "concessions". A game farm is not a concession, at least not in the true meaning of the word. 3. Hunting...

    Paying CASH up-front for a hunt?

    Cash is king. If i had any history with outfitter i would absolutely do it for the discount and to help him. I have been a booking agent for almost ten years now and the only time ive ever been screwed was by a "friend" hunter who used to post here, never an outfitter.

    Zebra rug - getting it done in Africa or at home?

    If you want to hear something unpopular but smarter....just buy a flatskin rug already done. Thats coming from a guy that has two rugs from "his" zebras. Unless yours has some super awesome markings, id just buy a flatbskin rug and save the money. I wish i would have.

    Favorite broadheads?!?!

    No, ive never understood that claim. They are deathly silent. Only thing i can think is if a guys setup is way out of tune or something but they have always flown great for me.
