It started whenever I realized that I had been borrowing my wife’s uncle’s compound bow for 3 years and I wanted to return it to him, also with my shoulder getting progressively worse a lighter poundage bow or perhaps a crossbow would do me some good, so the research started and i came upon this starter set for $120 on sale it came with bolts, the bow, a scope, and some field points. After some research I figured out it had plenty of energy to take white tail deer though I was still kind of concerned it was borderline, though I went ahead and pulled the trigger on Amazon.
When I received the bow I was excited to get it put together and fire it, after a few shots I already had bent all of the aluminum bolts that came with it, and ended up buying some cheap carbon express wolverine 20″ bolts from Walmart and some cheap Allen broad heads and extra field points. To improve the accuracy I modified the scope rail because the scope already had yardage markers, and the play in the mount due to the zeroing system built into it kind of hurt the accuracy a bit, so I pinned the mount in place so it couldn’t move, you can see the process and data HERE.
I think I have the buck I shot last year haunting me, I cannot for the life of me slow down and concentrate on what im doing, 3 weekends in a row shot and missed 3 deer from not taking an extra half a second to make sure im using the correct range marker in my scope that buck fever tho.
Hopefully i can get past this i had it really bad for 3 years with rifle, after i harvested my first deer i haven’t got buck fever with a rifle since. It’s pretty rough knowing that in the last 3 weekends i could have put 3 deer in the freezer but my nerves caused me to lose out.
Two of the three deer ive shot at were at 30 yds and for some reason I used the 20 yd marker for both, shot went right under. Then the one i had at 20 yds…… i used the 30 yd marker. In practice I don’t have any issues ranging and shooting guess i just need more practice. Thanks for reading and watching! More videos coming soon.
The server has changed in many ways since its first build with an old 775 socket celeron and 2gb of ram, to a dual xeon 771 setup, to a dual 6 coreopteron with 32gb of ram, back to a xeon 771 with 32gb of ram, and now its an i3-2120 i5-2400 with 16gb of ddr3 ram.
The server is running server 2012 r2 Datacenter with hyper-v for the virtual machines. here is a quick rundown of the virtual machines.
For main storage there is an array of 5x 2TB hitachi drives in Raid 5. contacam has its own 1tb blue, lancache has its own 300GB 10k velociraptor, there is a 500GB seagate I keep images of most of the vm’s on. finally the operating system with the rest of the vm disks are on a samsung 250GB samsung SSD.
Contacam: Running windows 10 ltsb and contacam software to manage my home security cameras. [4 cores 1GB-4GB dynamic meory] switched from contacam to motioneye in a docker, much less resources pretty cool webgui overall better imo.
