Hello folks – hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We ate around 1:30pm and it was fantastic. I am writing this at 9:00pm Thursday night and getting ready to go cook an apple pie. – Mrs. Smith.
I started Thursday by going out and working on my HAM repeater build. Trying to get it up as high as possible I have been using a small compound bow and fishing line. This worked for lower elevation(40 feet) however not for upwards of 80 feet. The fishing line would not hold the weight of the paracord being pulled up and over a branch. I went from a 10 pound test to 25 pound however as amazing as it may sound the additional weight of larger fishing line stopped the arrow from getting up to the tree limb being aimed for.
Looking to buy myself an inexpensive crossbow. One reason would be to assist with the project above and the other is – I want a crossbow. As of this writing Amazon has the Barnett Recruit Recurve for $129.98. This is a great price. May order it tomorrow if I can convince the wife that the impending zombie apocalypse is close at hand.
For those of you traveling in bad weather over the net few days – be careful out there.
I am stuffed – but must go make my pie.
