3-D archery has introduced me to many great friends that have helped me become a better archer. In 2011 I was introduced to Jason Wilkins and we have had a solid friendship since then. Jason introduced me to a whole new world dealing with arrows for 3-D and hunting. In 2012 my view of arrows would go to a whole new level as I began using the Black Eagle Arrows for hunting!

As the season was winding down, the weather forecast called for heavy rain almost every day I could go out to hunt. I don’t recall a ti
Pennsylvania instituted an antler restriction law in 2002. Personally, I have seen an improvement in the quality of deer in my home state. Every year I run trail cameras to scout my hunting areas and I see some amazing deer. The past few years I have had some 140 inch and larger class deer running the areas I hunt. I have yet to close the deal on a Giant PA buck but I know they are there! Early in August I purchased a SpyPoint Evo cellular trail camera. I was a little hesitan
