Time to swap out the shotguns for the bows as archery season is fast approaching. This time of year I love to fiddle around with different setups and determine what works best for me. I also get a lot of question on what bowhunting gear I use, so I’d thought give you a little update on what equipment I will be outfitting myself with this year to put the stranglehold on all the beasts I hope to slay this season.
I’ll be shooting the Bone Collector Carbon Element RKT, and I already covered why I am in love with this bow in a previous blog, so let’s get to what I trick it out with. My bow is decked out in Tru Glo and Apex sights and accessories. Spending time with my Bone Collector Apex sight at the range, I found that it is so easy to adjust, even my boys can figure out. They love tinkering too, and I will tell them what adjustment need to be made while I sit back and sip some sweet iced tea. Once that bad boy is dialed in, I know my arrows will hit wherever I put the pin, whether it is on the target at the range or the vitals of a Mack Daddy standing broadside 40 yards out.
I am still shooting a variety of G5 broadheads that include the T3 and Striker. For whitetail and elk, the T3’s get called upon because I love the pass-through and big cut I get from them. I will swap them out with a 100-grain striker when I am birddoggin’ bear and moose because the thicker blades are awesome for these huge animals.
In bowhunting, the devil is in the details and my other essentials include Fuse Stabilizers and quivers, T.R.U. Ball Bone Collector Release and a G5 Meta Peep.
I hope this sheds some light on what I use and why. I am panting like a dog as I wait for fall, but luckily I will get the chance to draw to some blood in Africa this July. I really hope to close the deal on a “black death” buff with a stick and string. Hope y’all are getting those bows in tune and shooting like a boss. It is one part of the game I love!
