White Oak,like all clubs in the ice storm area,sustained a lot of damage to trees on the range and blockage of trails and shooting lanes but they have some hard working members that will have it ready for...

    Jack, The V-round was always a lot of work to set up properly and always hot out in that July sun! but if shooters had continued to come out in #'s and enjoyed the course then we would have been glad to provide the field for them.The problems you remember several years ago with the V-round...

    Help with old Hoyt

    Hello Jack, I think Keith gave you some good information and a pretty good clue to what may be going with your rig....something has sure moved and a good inspection of the string/cables is in order if you have not replaced the string/cables in a while. I think I still have the "spec sheets"...

    6mm bullet recommendations

    Auk, I agree with Ace and kytrapper, I feel that the 85 grain Nosler Partition would be a good choice. Your 6BR with it's 1-10 twist should stabilize that weight bullet well and deliver velocities in the 3100 fps or better. My only experience with a 6BR has been in 1-14 twist barrels but the BR...

    Dead horse alert...broadhead suggestions

    Whiterubi, Keith gives good advice, whatever you "choose to use" must be sharp and most of the time "right out'da package" needs some work..... I personally use a mechanical that I know Keith does not like but they work for me....most of the time giving very good blood trails and sometimes...

    David, Sorry I did not reply sooner but just as soon as I added to this thread I left to "fire up" the stove in the club house....but to answer your question, (a little late of couse!) shooting conditions were not all that bad by about 11:00 a.m. although the wind had a "bite" to it. I know...
