    armguard

    I laminated the table and attached it to an archery armguard with quick release plastic buckles. I attach it to my foream when hunting, and it is easy to see and pick the right clics without having to twist the stock around.

    Keep a spare table in your pack in case you take off the armguard when peeling off layers of clothing and forget to pu it back on, as I have.

    I printed mine off in Microsoft excel format then laminated to keep it dry. Then I taped in on the side of the butt (side opposite cheek weld), nice and handy. Mine goes up in 25 yard increments.

    Also keep a spare in my daypack just in case.

    I pseudo-laminated mine with a couple of layers of clear packing tape on each side, and slipped it under my elastic buttstock ammo holder.

    I prefer to tape them to my rangefinder.

    My data is computed in a Microsoft Excel program and I lazerprint it on weatherproof paper. I tape a condensed version on the side of my buttstock and a large full blown version in my backpack or pocket. I've soaked this paper over night submerged in water and it's still completely readable. For long range shots the full blown version gets pulled out and put to use. For mid or shorter range shots I use the cheat-sheet on the buttstock. No problems so far...

    Palm M125 with Sharp Shooters Friend. Allow's fine tuning as field conditions change.
    Print outs are great cheat-sheets, but a program allows for all the variables.

    This is what I printed on Excel off of Exbal... Color key for each revolution of the turret.

    laminated it and keep it in my Eagle stock pack.....
