Ruttin’ Review: G5 Mag Loc 5 Arrow Quiver

Well to start with here is a little about this great product:

  • Top riser-mounted quiver
  • Multiple-hole sight-mount bracket for vertical adjustment
  • Secures using a Super Magnet that allows quick and silent attaching/detaching
  • 1-piece design
  • Lightweight magnesium stem
  • Rubber over-molded hood
  • Accommodates fixed or expandable broadheads
  • Right/Left-Hand design

Ok well I have a good reason to do a review on a quiver.  The last two years I have broken both quivers I had while on my bow.  The first one I actually tripped and landed riser down on the ground and my quiver broke in half.  I can’t really say it was the quivers fault but hey.  The second I was lowering my bow down from the treestand the arrows hit the ground first, string was too long lol, but the top of the quiver broke right off.  So as I dreamed of a new quiver I still used the old one with no holder for the heads, it worked but was not visually appealing nor very safe.  Guess what, I got a new one for xmas.  The G5 Mag loc 5 arrow quiver.  I got to install it on my bow for the last week and a half of the season.  The quiver is very easy to install, took me 2 min and it looked great on my G5 Primal bow.  The metal construction was great, and I’m pretty sure it’s not going to break any time soon.  The dampeners are great for on the bow shooting.  The magnet attachment system is soooooo quiet not like those other plastic setups.  The price is mid level for quivers which is good in my opinion.  The other features are it can be used with fixed blades or expandables, can hold any arrow size including full metal jackets, and it comes in many camo patterns.   I used it on my last five hunts and loved it.  You can also get the magnet tree bracket for easy treestand use which I find very helpful in those mainstay stands.  Overall I cannot say anything bad about this setup, its quiet, cost-effective, more than functional in every situation you find yourself in.  I highly recommend you go out and get one today, you wont regret it.

A Birthday Buck To Remember.

It’s another chilly November 10th morning 15 feet up in my tree stand.  You might say whats so special about the 10th of november?   Well 2 things.  1 it’s my birthday, and 2, 9 times out of 10 it’s during the rut.  As I sat in my tree stand as a fairly new archer.  I can remember it like it was yesterday.  There was no action, no deer, just a few squirrels and birds around. Well you might say whats so special about that.  Well at this time in my life our family did not really celebrate birthdays, I had not gotten a present in years.  Prior to that I had always received presents so it had been kinda a big change for a kid.  I’m not saying that presents have to be given or that I was lacking as a child I was definitely not.  It was just a change.  So enough of that and back to the story.  As I sat there in one of my favorite places, a tree stand with my bow.  I started to pray as I do 99% of the time even to this day.  The tree stand is like my closet as it says in the bible, its dark, usually pin drop quiet, it’s a great place for prayer.  My prayer that day was (I pray to you heavenly Father on this great morning that you have given us, I thank you for letting me out in this great creation of yours, enjoying everything you have made.  Father I ask you today to bring me a buck for my birthday, I have not received anything for my birthday in the last years and this is all I ask for today.  In Jesus name AMEN. )  I then opened my eyes and scanned the woods for ever so slight movement.  Nothing….. So I continued to scan for the next ten minutes or so until out of the corner of my left eye I caught a deer walking.  I looked closer and it was coming from about 100 yards out walking to my stand.  The deer approached closer and closer and at about 60 yards I could see a small rack on its head.  A six point, I was soooo excited and began to shiver a little.  The buck continued to approach my bait.  I grabbed my bow as the deer turned right on the trail coming to the bait.  I drew back my bow and tried to remember all the lessons my dad had tought me.  Again and again draw smooth, pull the pin to behind the shoulder, take a breath and let 1/2 out and hold.  release……  My release was true and I had arrowed the basket rack six point a little back but still a kill shot.  I began to shake tremendously and immediately after began to thank God for such a great buck.  I walked back to the cabin and got my dad and uncle to find the deer.  We tracked the deer in the snow for a while,  at one point I was praying again to find the deer.  Then it appeared a nice blood trail up the hill, a small 6 point laying in a hole.  I was so happy as my dad congratulated me and as I said to my uncle ” I think you should gut it for me since its my birthday”  I didn’t have to gut just drag.  I was sooo happy that day and was to this date one of the best birthdays I can remember.  The only one that strikes me more was when my dad gave me his 7mm rifle out of the blue on my birthday.  So for all you out there that enjoyed this story. Remember that it does not have to be a 23 point non-typical to become the best memories of your life. Also, I suggest that you try prayer in the stand it will change your life trust me….

There are some pretty cool teams that are joining us on this channel so we are blessed to get such a great opportunity like the one presented to us.

We always say “We don’t know what we are going to do, but we are going to have fun doing it.” Well this isn’t true about this channel. We have some pretty cool stuff lined up for ya. We don’t want to give it all away but trust me this will be some great infotainment, we are not going to pull any punches, we’re going to put all our cards on the table and take no prisoners. Geez, how many clichés’ can I put in one sentence let alone in one blog?

Speaking of blogs, I am going to be extremely busy with this new project and I know this blog will suffer. I enjoy blogging but I know I have alot of work ahead of me. I’m am going to try to blog as much as I can but want this thing to be successful for Team D.I.R.T. and TMP.

Ruttin’ Review: The Silent Retriever

Posted in 6or7, antlers, archery, bear, deer, experience, fishing, fleece, g5, g5 quiver, guns, Hunting, outdoors, recipe, reviews, Ruttin' Review, scent-lok, sheds, sportsman, team dirt, typical, Uncategorized, vertigo with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2012 by THENONTYPICALSPORTSMAN

The Silent Retriever… What a good concept. I don’t know how many times I have been up in my tree stand and well, you all know what happens next. There goes your warm gloves, your quiver, or even your bow. Now its prime time hunting and something you need is now on the ground. I’m pretty sure most of you have had this happen more than once, I’m here to tell you there is now a solution to this problem. It’s called The Silent Retriever. This new product looks kinda like a fishing lure with a 25 ft multi purpose cord. The way it works is you lower it down quickly and quietly and it hooks to your item to pull it up. When I received The Silent Retriever I could not wait to give it a try. I went out back and placed a few items on the ground. A bow, Pair of gloves, hat, arrow, and binoculars. I hooked the retriever to the multipurpose rope and dropped it down. Quickly I brought up all the items and it only took 30 seconds. I was pleased at how quickly and efficiently it picked everything up. I highly recommend this product to everyone’s backpacks this upcoming season. I haven’t got a chance to try it out but I was thinking if i was ever lost and needed to catch fish this also might be a good item for other survival situations. I know that’s off topic but was just a thought. Go to http://www.thesilentretriever.com to check it out and pick one up for your upcoming season. You won’t be disappointed.
