Default Lets see your hunting rigs for this year..........

Unfortunately I am not able to make it to the classic or worlds this year because of work and family obligations so my 3D season other than local shoots is done for this year. Because of this I have really started on getting my XT outfitted and dialed in for hunting season because I am starting to get really antsy to sit in a tree. I have had this XT for quite some time, but haven't even put accessories on it other than a whisker biscuit I had temporarily just to shoot it and feel it a bit at the shop. I got all my accessories here as of today except for the new string/cable which should be here soon enough (flour green/bronze from gibblet). It isn't quite as fast as I thought it would be however the cam is out of time on it and once the new string and cable are here and the cam is back in spec I am sure it will pick up a few more fps, not that it really matters. Specs and accessories are as follows:

70lb 30" SB XT - 289fps
412 grain Gold Tip XT's - wrapped and blazers
NAP quicktune 360
Sims S-Coil
Sword Acu Site Micro 3rd Plane - Camo 2" pin guard - .029 on top and .019's down from there
G5 meta peep (I know I'm trendy....[8D])
STS
Torqueless Grip - long nose, medium wrist, black/silver

Season can't get here fast enough for me right now, and I definitely can't wait to whack something with this rig.....

Hah.......good eye.

Bow isn't sighted past 20 yards right now and it isn't tuned well, I am waiting for the new string/cable to open that can of worms. When it is, I will have a 20, 30, 40, and 50 on it for hunting.

Wow, wow wait a minute!

Rickjames are you going to hunt with that 360 & how do you like it?

I seriously considered trying one and look to dump the DZ next year in favor of that rest or a bodoodle if I can find one. I'm impressed to see someone with anything he wants at his disposal shooting one.

How well does it work?

BTW, great looking rigs everyone.
