I have a Tenpoint as well, in fact two of them.  Had an issue with one - great customer service.  A deadly accurate weapon for sure.

One is enough for me.  I agree, fantastic customer service and a lifetime no hassle guarantee.  They even sent me a prepaid ship label for the return to them in Mogadore, Ohio.  I got new limbs, updated cams, new bow string, new trigger box and the even replace all my Luminocks because the new trigger box takes a flat nock and mine were dimpled.  Hunter Manufacturing is top shelf.

I'm a gun guy.  The bow just extends my season.

Nothing here.  been religiously doing the Sevin.  I have cukes coming out my ears, literally.  I loaded up a pump sprayer with Sevin concentrate, too far to drag the hose end sprayer.

Give them some more dust....  If you run out of cukes, we have plenty to give away.  been having cukes in vinegar every night.  been doing the corn and the tomatoes too.  If it rains tonight, I'll douse them in the morning.  The cucumber and zuchini plants are alive every morning with bees.  Sounds like an airport over there.....  lots of little planes....lol

The zuchini looks like a hedgerow and the cukes have taken over two rows of onions.  Got to be that 46 Urea.  The corn across the road is at least 12 feet tall.  Never seen field corn that tall.  he uses 46 too.

After 8 dry years, I'm never going to get cuked out. ;D

I like cukes but some people really do.  I took a few to the gym and gave to a young gal that works there.  She ate them like a banana.. She hadn't heard of a burpless one

Trying to get a date?   lol

 I like to cut the end off, add some salt and munch away.  CL made some in sour cream this afternoon...for dinner I suspect.  I sliced up the bigger ones, they are in a big bowl soaking in saltwater for doing dill pickles tomorrow.

Never been to a gym.  I get all the physical exercise I need right here farming and working on the houses and seven acres.

We just had a boomer with rain.  Guess I'll be spraying the cukes again tomorrow...  (after picking another bucket full).

You can find my cukes, zuchinni , soon tomatoes, sweet corn and potatoes at John's vegetable stand on Old Route 223, across from Ottawa Lake Co-op at Yankee road...  and lots of other stuff too.
