2020 Flagship Model First Impressions!

All of the 2020 flagship models from the major manufacturers are now out! Below are our thoughts on the models we have shot so far. Keep in mind these are our first impressions. We have had limited time with each bow though we did purchase a VXR 28 and PSE NXT 31 so expect in depth reviews of those bows to follow. We'll likely also cover Hoyt's new offerings in more depth over the coming months simply because of all of the flack they have been receiving (both legitimate and unwarranted) and feel this deserves further examination once emotions have...


Mystery Ranch Treehouse Review

Mystery Ranch Treehouse Review

I originally bought the Treehouse with the intention of making it my dedicated treestand/whitetail pack but it has become my “Go-To” trail cam checking, range day sending, treestand hanging, do-it-all bag.

Arrow Building Step by Step

1. Select components you want to use. 2. Spin arrows to determine straighter side (If you are using high end arrows .001 straightness or better this step is optional but for arrows with lesser tolerances it will pay dividends. The Pine Ridge Arrow Spinner is a nice affordable option and every archer should have an arrow spinner in their kit to ensure arrows remain true over time regardless of how durable you think they may be) 3. Cut arrows to desired length removing the less straight side (I like mine to end roughly in the center of my riser to keep...
