New Hunting Regulations in Effect THE 2018-2019 hunting and trapping seasons and regulations before the Ohio Wildlife Council at press time last spring go into effect this month include season dates and modifications to whitetail deer hunting on public land. Deer bag limits were proposed to remain the same as last year for all but one county. A reduction in the bag limit from three deer to two deer was proposed for Jefferson County. All other county bag limits are expected to remain the same. The Division of Wildlife also proposed modifications for hunting on public land that would permit hunters to harvest only one antlerless deer from public hunting areas per license year. It also required that only antlered deer be harvested on public land after Dec. 2 to allow…

THE NEW Carbon RX-1 is a precision piece of equipment. One which promises to make you a better shot. If that sounds like marketing hooey, consider this: The ZT Hyper Cam System is designed in such a way that it produces a comfortable, natural shooting posture, by increasing the cam to cam distance. This means when you draw the RX-1, you’ll experience a flatter string angle, which brings your peep directly to your eye (less eye fatigue during the shot sequence) and reduces facial contact with the string. This may not seem like a big deal and won’t be when you’re at the range. However, when you’re in the heat of battle and have only a few seconds to set up and execute an awkwardly angled shot, it means everything. Naturally,…

GEAR “The Right Gear Matters” BOW CHOICE IS VERY PERSONAL with plenty to consider when selecting that perfect rig. For instance, how you intend to hunt is very important. Are you an ambush artist? Or, are you a backcountry addict? Is arrow speed the most important consideration for you? Or, do you place value on being able to control the bow at full-draw with little or no shake? Other considerations include your build and draw length. Are you comfortable with a short axle-to-axle bow or do you need a few more inches of riser to tighten your groups? These questions need to be asked, and at least partially answered, long before you darken the door of your nearest pro shop. HERE ARE FIVE NEW, TASK-SPECIFIC RIGS THAT WILL ENHANCE YOUR ENJOYMENT AS A…

an ambusher’s dream

LIKE THEIR 2017 Halon 32, the new Triax delivers incredible accuracy and easy tuning with the Crosscentric Cam technology. Unlike last year’s model, the Triax is 4 inches shorter between axles, which means it tapes at only 28 inches. For the treestand and ground blind hunter, the Triax is a dream come true as it delivers true maneuverability in tight situations and allows for a smooth, shoulder-friendly draw during those up-close moments when you could be busted by excessive movement. The Triax feels short at first, but after a few shots you’ll settle into the abbreviated design. You’ll often hear bowhunters say that bows this short are difficult to shoot well, and many have been, mostly because they didn’t tackle the problem as well as Mathews. SPECS Axle-To-Axle 28 in. Brace Height 6 in. Bow Weight…
