    A box showed up on my front porch today. I looked around but didn’t see anybody who could have left it there. Maybe it was dropped by the Ether Bunny. I opened it up and there was a really weird contraption inside that seemed to have something to do with pigs. I thought maybe it attached to a blender being as some people suggest blender blades are good for killing animals but to my dismay the bolt hole were not right on the blender. Then I thought maybe it had to do with shooting pigs with drill bits, so I went out to the garage and got my rusty ole Craftsman drill and a 338 bit but even after I got the contraption duct taped on the drill, I didn't have enough extension cord to go hog hunting.

    Finally, I untaped the device and put it in the box on a shelf and I will ponder for a while about what this device actually will fit on. Who knows, maybe the Ether Bunny will drop off another box for me in a couple of days.

    "Spot Hogg"?? Maybe one of the women in the house ordered it for removing "spots" in the carpet.

    The pins are 0.010. I am hoping that they will behave much like a fine crosshair and give a precise aiming point at long range. Some people have said that with a fast bow, seven pins will get you to 110 yards and perhaps even more. Probably depends upon arrow weight. We shall see when more boxes get here.

    Nice sight. I didn't know .010 dia. pins were available. Your eye sight must be way better than mine. I don't even get along with .019 pins but sixty yards is where I spend almost all my practice time. You fellows that shoot groups out to 100 yards have my admiration.

    You misunderstand me. I have not set up a new bow in about 8 or 10 years and have not shot a bow in at least two years. This is a new beginning for me. I have done about everything with a rifle that a reasonable person would do and all that is left for me with a rifle are the feats like making a kill at 1500 yards or a mile. I will rifle hunt one more year and then switch back to bowhunting.

    Bob Nice you will love the 7 pin. I got to wonder about your title however? Do you know who the "EATHER BUNNY" was?

    I do not have a clue.

    My intention was to do the knock knock joke routine. Being as the boxes are ordered through the "ether net", I thought it was a good play on words.

    The next time a box came I would post a threaed and title it "Nuther" and the next time the thread title would be "Stilla", etc. :D

    It takes quite a few boxes to put a bow together.

    I know nothing about long range bow hunting other than what the guys at my local gun/bow shop have shown/told me. Kyle, one of them, has killed an antelope at 110 and an elk at 120. They use a sight pin connected to a turret and a range scale. They have pins for closer shots but I think for 50+ they dial.

    Long range bow hunting looks interesting. I'm looking forward to hearing about how it goes for you.

    What you tired of your kids beating you at f-class? Gonna give up the gun for the stick and string? Well that is just fine, shoot what you want but don't quit hanging out here, I enjoy your posts. I wouldn't let it bother me that a little girl could beat me at f-class.

    I'm interested to see how you like the .010's. I have the .019's and wonder if I should have gone smaller. 110 yards is asking alot even with 7 pins, how much do you intend to pull, and what bow did you go with... unless that is ruining your surprise :D

    I plan to stay tuned (no pun intended) cause this long range archery stuff is fascinating. If I decide to get envolved in more that shooting foam, I'll need to rethink how to keep the critter still while the arrow is headed his way. A lot to think about, for sure.

    I'd like to try it but I just can't afford it. One long range sport is all my wallet and wife can handle. Plus, bow hunting mule deer takes more skill than I possess. I'll just have to experience it vicariously through others like Buffalobob.
