disappointed hunt last night
 
Well as some of you know I'm doing a DIY black bear hunt in MB. I have a few baits that are very active and went out last night to hunt. I got in stand at 6pm.... then drew my bow back to stretch out a bit. Its the norm for me to do this. Well the chord on my QAD Ultra rest snapped[:@]. I tried to fix it in stand but couldn't. So I just sat there for 5hrs without any way of shooting if a bear did come in.
I'm still going to stick with the rest because I like it. BUT I'm going to check that chord alot more frequently for any signs of wear. I would think the wear in this case would have been inside the wheel of the rest anyhow and wouldn't have been seen externally.

Not last night.... but I do have 3 sows coming in almost nightly to the bait. 2 are dry and one has a cub that is the size of a house cat.... maybe a little wider. I'm waiting on one of those sows to come into heat sow I can smack a boar. If not I will hunt the fall season.

At least you didn't have a shot oppourtunity. That would have sucked to have a P&Y bear at 15 yrds.

That bites Robert, at least nothing came In when your stuff was down though. Better luck next time bud!!

Stink them baits up real good and possibly get some new bear In there.

Heck why didn't I do that earlier? Some people might feel bad for sitting on a 5oolbs bird feeder but I found it fun. That chord was how old. I'm not even sure. I bought the rest used! Its know ones fault but my own. And I'm not about to walk back out to my vehicle to drive home because i was hunting with another guy. He was still in the game in my eyes. I had to wait for him. Why ruin his hunt b/c I couldn't?
You'll get to know that about me. Its all about the hunt. AND by the way...... I'm sticken to my QAD

I love my QAD too... I would not switch either for something I overlooked, like you said... Love that rest...
