  1. retro, I was thinking about the mounting bracket for the the gizmo the other day....an adapter could very easily be 3D printed that could go from an existing handlebar type mount to the gizmo itself. so if you have any ideas of how you want that done, sketch something up and i can model it and have it made.
  2. Yeah he's the heaviest buck I've ever killed. 192 lbs after guts out. Rack not that impressive compared to a lot of the other bucks people in my family shoot, but we had this guy on camera and knew he was going to weigh a lot, and when he came out to the picked corn field he was way bigger than any of the other deer I had seen that week. So I put a 150gr 30 cal bullet right in his gearbox.
  3. Yep, 8 pointer. Just figured out how to do more than 1 picture per post 🤦‍♂️
  4. And then later in the week I shot 3rd and 4th deer of the year, with rifle and from my adapted ladder stand though. Doe was much closer to the camera in the picture, she actually was only about 110 pounds. Buck weighed 192 dressed though.
  5. Shot a doe using shotgun right off the RancherAT. Used a box blind window Caldwell shooting bag over the handlebar mounted light bar to rest the gun.
  6. Doe I shot last Monday. My first deer kill while using a tactacam and also my first deer kill using my micro recurve.
  7. Wow @retroI had no idea your shooting range and target setup was THAT nice. Looks very well thought out and executed. Good luck in your upcoming season, line up 2 deer and that BD440 will have no problem going through both 😉
  8. It's been a slow start to the season here, but hopefully that changes when it finally cools down next week. A new place I get to hunt this year is loosely "earn-a-buck", and then we have another place with too many deer, so hoping to shoot a couple mamas and will probably just give em away or donate them. We'll fill our own freezer with deer in November. A bear hunting trip like that would be a lot of fun, and hopefully can be in the cards for me someday. It's 3D printed. I don't have my own 3D printer, but found a place that does printing for very reasonable rates. Once I made one for my Dad who uses an HHA Optimizer Speed Dial, I knew I had to make these available for others, but didn't really want to deal with taking orders and payments and shipping long term. So I worked out all the bugs and thankfully found a guy wanting to take it over, so they are still available to any Excal owner who wants them.
  9. @oh400ex where are you located? Look up Bill Bune Enterprises in MN. They specialize in what you're looking to get done at reasonable rates.
  10. Yeah I find myself putzing more with crossbows now than atv's... I can do it mostly on my own without arranging physical help, and can do it in smaller chunks and while doing stuff with the kiddos. Though I can't touch @retroin the crossbow realm either just like I can't with atv electrical stuff. I focus more on having my hunting setup and he's really got the long range target stuff dialed. Spent 13 years owning an Excalibur crossbow but spent the first 12 of those years not thinking about all the tweaking and customizing you can do to them. Now I'm hooked, working on building a Micro from spare parts even.
  11. Sorry for being out for so long, lots to catch up on here but glad to see pointing to the clutch, that's what it was sounding like as the cause to me when I was reading through the OP.
  12. I'm not gone, just fully absorbed in the "least busy, most occupied" season of life I've ever been in... Being a dad to 1, 2, and 4 year old girls.
  13. Put a few miles on my gizmo last weekend, still working flawlessly.
  14. Howdy folks. Been a while. I need to see about transferring the old fan control gizmo thread here, eh? That thing worked AMAZING this hunting season. Got it in the garage now and finally need to replace that leaking rear seal, for those that remember.
