Scott McGann of Idaho got it done on an Idaho black bear with his Shoot Pink Project arrow in the quiver in honor and memory of Jessica Swisher Hambrick. Scott's boy couldn't resist jumpin' in for a photo as well.
Well done Scott! Keep it up!
Stuck a few fish with some graduating seniors from Henry County High School the other night @ KY Lake.
We had a great Outdoorsmen's Breakfast event this past weekend with the good folks in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. Found a few new friends - and hunting spots- along the way too! Good times.
Turkey season has finally wrapped up in Tennessee. But before it did, I had a chance to sneak off for one last opportunity to slap a turkey in the face with a load of 4's. After hunting turkeys in Montana the last 5 or 6 years, the transition back to hunting the tough toms in the south has been quite a challenge. The eastern longbeard is without a doubt the hardest bird I've ever done battle with. It's been over a decade since I'd last hunted turkeys with a shotgun so this year I took some time to return to my roots and do some run-n-gun turkey hunting like back in the old days when I was first getting started. And I honestly loved every minute of it. Chasing gobblers in the swamp and dodging cotton-mouth snakes are memories of the past...that was until this year. It's been fun revisiting some old hunting grounds that still hold a few gobbling turkeys...and playing the game there just like I did many years ago. A big thanks to my little spotter, Easton, for helping me slam my last bird of the Tennessee season.
What started several years ago as a back-room redesign of a wildly successful product has culminated into the release of the new ground-breaking and game-taking Rage 3-Blade Broadhead with KORE Technology™. The extremely accurate futuristic ferrule of the patent-pending Rage 3-Blade deploys its razor-sharp 1.08-inch-long blades instantly upon contact to produce cuts in six directions for a gigantic 1.6-inch-diameter star-like hole with more than three inches of total cutting area.
Several states have banned mechanical three-blade broadhead designs because their blades can create a “barbed” configuration from binding against each other during extraction. Rage initiated a redesign of its original 3-Blade to overcome any potential for binding.
Rage engineers recognized that separating and orienting the blades away from the center of the ferrule would prevent any possibility of binding against one another. They created a unique skeletal design with a precision-ground solid steel ferrule that utilized the patented and proven Slip-Cam™ blade deployment system. This new KORE design absolutely eliminated interference between the stainless-steel blades, but Rage engineers never anticipated the accuracy and on-game devastation that their new design could produce.
The slim 3/4-inch in-flight profile of the new Rage 3-Blade proved itself field-point accurate, but its penetration and internal destruction has been unprecedented in both gelatin and field tests. The new Rage 3-Blade not only penetrates further than the original, it tends to “core” the target because of the single-bevel leading edges of the ferrule.
Each blade of the new broadhead is .035-inches thick—.005 of an inch thicker than the original—to greatly increase durability. The new 3-Blade also employs a polymer KORE Shock Collar™, which retains the blades much more reliably than O-rings until the moment of impact.
The new 100-gr. Rage 3-Blade with KORE Technology is now available from Rage Outdoors Authorized Dealers nationwide in a three-pack with a practice head and three replacement KORE Shock Collarblade-retention devices. The MSRP is $49.99.
