now if it is freezing rain that is a different story but I dont know any one stupid enough to hunt in freezing rain. 8)
Call me stupid then cause I have and will again if thats what the weather is doing when I can get the time to go hunting. Its not all that comfortable but by god I'm a huntin!!!
I use a V rest and just replace the rubber tips every season ($1.99) and I am good to go. I dont usually walk with an arrow nocked though so I dont have a problem with it falling off the rest and never had a problem with noise that I would attribute to the rest.....yet.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
