  • I usually process my own deer but, I am seriously contemplating having it done this season. Does anyone know of a good place to have it done in Rowan county preferably between Salisbury and Statesville? I live in Woodleaf.

    So what areas do you guys start out hunting first part of the season? I personally bounce to and from. I like deep woods opening morning then its off to field edges my second hunt. After that, its randomness well, where the deer are for the rest of the season. What about you guys?

    Is Second Creek going to be a lottery for archery and rifle this season or as it usually is and open during archery and lottery during rifle. I'm only interested in Archery.

    X2 on the NAP Apache. You can pick one up for around $60.00 and it is a great rest. I have the Original Tooless design and I have the new Apache CARBON on my new Centroid and love both of the.

    Hey guys, I say I'm from Rowan in the title which is where I reside now. I grew up in Gaston, then moved to Greenville SC then out to Rowan and now I live in Rowan where we will retire in oh 35 years or so. We have one more move left to Lake Norman in a few years. Lake during the summer and hunting on our land in the winter. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me.

    Now about my hunting. I've only been hunting for 3 seasons and I only bow hunt. I don't fish much at this point in my life but, when we move to the lake, I'll likely bowfish and get back at the bass.

    As for forums I am an active member of (which is where I heard of this one) ArcheryTalk and so I'm not new to forums at all.

    I look forward to being on this site.

    Second Creek off White Rd near 801. Out around West Rowan High.

    Last season it was open to the public during bow then lottery during muzzle and rifle.

    Had I known about this sooner, I would have participated..

    Hey man, you still have that long pinky nail and wearing your hat sideways talking bad about the rage broadheads while taking high shoulder shots??

    Just so you know, I am just kidding. You may remember me as Sticknstringarchery from I just remember the crap you got from all the guys over there. I'm still on but, not as much as I use to be.

    How have you been?

    A comment titled: Stabs in response to a report titled: Stabilizers

    As Goblin stated they do have their purpose and actually many purposes. Everything from balance, vibration control, noise reduction and one I haven't seen mentioned, torque reduction. No matter what, don't just buy one because someone else uses that particular one. My current bow holds better without one so, I use a light one to reduce vibration. That's really all it is there for. My last bow needed at least 8' with at least 3oz of weight on the end. The one before that needed a lot more help than I was willing to spend on stabs. What I suggest doing is going to a shop and trying different ones out. Most shops will let you do that. If they don't you probably want to find another shop. In any case, just remember that each bow is different with each shooter. You and I would probably need a different stab for the same exact bow. Everything from Draw weight to draw length to bows natural balance to the way the wind is blowing can change what is needed from a stabilizer.

    I made one out of 3 fence post, clothes line and carpet. Works great. Put the post one one each side and one in the middle. Pull line tight as you can and lay the carpet and padding over the whole thing. Mine is around 10' wide and 5' tall. I have had a few pass through but, they just fall on the ground right behind it. Yes, it can be hard on Blazers though.

    No matter what deer you have in your woods, don't even worry about it. Enjoy hunting and if you have the chance at a bruiser, whack him!! If you intend on hunting for a big guy, enjoy it too, learn something ever time you go out and remember it for next time. Life is to short to stress about something you should enjoy.

    Thanks for telling me about this place. I really am looking forward to sharing my stories and hearing others. I am full of all kinds of to some is useless information as well. hahaha.

    There is some good turkey hunting in this area. I love me some run and gun, well bow hunting some turkeys. Never killed one but, have been really close. Anything else I kill will be with a bow though.

    For the money of the CARBON, I'd go with the Code Red if I were to change it up.
