Specialty Archery Acquires Bodoodle Rest Line

Specialty Archery Acquires Bodoodle Rest Line

Specialty Archery LogosmallSpecialty Archery, LLC of Spencer, IA is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Bodoodle arrow rests from Blaine Earlywine, who had acquired the line a few years ago that had been founded by S.G. Christian in the 1970s.

Bodoodle LogosmallBodoodle was one of the premier names in arrow rests for more than 25 years, a favorite of both competitive archers and discriminating bowhunters who admired its quality construction and ability to launch arrows with a high degree of accuracy. Models like the Timberdoodle, Game-Dropper and Pro-Lite all preceded the current crop of drop-away rests yet provided total fletching clearance thanks to Christian’s elegant design.

Bodoodle rests based on that innovative design use a cradle that pivots on fine bearings, so that the speed fins that support the shaft for part of the power stroke sweep down and out of the way before they can contact conventional fletching. In the early years of the brand Bodoodle rests were among the most expensive on the market, but modern manufacturing techniques helped lower the cost at a time when other well-known rests were gaining in sophistication and price. By the late 1990s Bodoodle was considered one of the top arrow rest brands on the market. In 2004 its owner was inducted into the Bowhunting Hall of Fame.

After the death of S.G. Christian, Blaine Earlywine purchased Bodoodle from his estate and moved the firm from Coleman, Texas to Carlisle, Kentucky. Earlywine kept the Bodoodle name alive with the aid of dedicated employees, his wife Danita and young sons Braxton and Aiden, marketing several different models. They continued the Bodoodle tradition of offering rugged, perfectly machined arrow rests that were capable of providing flawless arrow flight, right along with excellent customer service.

Early in 2009 Specialty Archery, LLC and Earlywine began talking about a transfer of ownership that could take advantage of the Iowa firm’s strengths as a way to expand Bodoodle’s market share. Specialty Archery, LLC is known throughout the archery industry as a brand with a strong following among the type of precision archers who so often chose a Bodoodle rest in the past. The manufacturer of high quality scopes, peeps, and stabilizers has a strong dealer network domestically and works with most of the leading foreign distributors to sell its products world-wide. Specialty Archery, LLC also has a track record of introducing successful new products, like the Verifier lenses that screw into its peeps to sharpen the view of pins for aging hunters and the Clarifier lenses used to sharpen target faces viewed through scopes by competitive archers.

Michael Anderson, general manager of Specialty Archery, said their firm worked closely with Earlywine to insure another sale wouldn’t disrupt existing orders at a time when dealers were stocking up for the summer and fall peak sales season. “Both Specialty Archery customers and Bodoodle customers can be assured that great preparation has gone into the acquisition, so that the transition would be smooth and seamless for customers of both companies,” Anderson said. “Specialty Archery took over control of all operations including ordering, invoicing, customer service, and production starting on July 1, 2009.” 

Specialty's John RappsmallBodoodle Pro Litesmall

John Rapp holds Bodoodle’s most popular rest, the Pro Lite, which is also shown at right. Rapp works in production for Specialty Archery, LLC and also helps promote the product line at shoots. Careful planning meant  he had inventory ready to ship to customers immediately after the July 1 changeover date.

“The acquisition of Bodoodle allows us to pursue a different product line than what we currently offer,” Anderson said. “The Bodoodle name has a solid reputation in arrow rests, and Blaine Earlywine has done an excellent job in maintaining the company’s current status in the marketplace.  Specialty Archery is looking forward to the venture with a great deal of enthusiasm and excitement.  We plan to apply the same principles and practices that have made Specialty Archery successful so that Bodoodle can offer more shooters an alternative to the full capture style fixed rests and the cord-driven fall-away rests that dominate the market today.”

SWARM VERSUS NUGE-THUNDER BAY BRUIN WARS by Ted Nugent

SWARM VERSUS NUGE-THUNDER BAY BRUIN WARS 2009  by Ted Nugent
To the disconnected minds of city folk and nonhunters, I suppose now would be as good a time as any to pose the age old, rhetorical question: are we having fun yet? Certainly the cloud of six billion Ontario mosquitoes covering my face and hands were having the time of their lives, in spite of the fact that I had systematically killed more than a billion or so of them in the last few hours. The hordes of buzzing, flitting, stabbing, bloodsucking pests were clearly oblivious to my heroic destruction of so many of their carnivorous comrades, and on they sucked at the most inappropriate of times. Now they had me. Temporarily, that is, but they had me. There was nothing I could do to save my own blood supply now.
 
I could have carefully smashed a few hundred more per swipe if I dared, but now, after another long, joint numbing five hour stationery vigil, I was not about to give away my predator ambush position for anything, including the sweet revenge of much loved mosquito slamming.
 
For before me, finally, moving ever so cautiously into shooting position, was the long awaited arrival of a big, fat, ebony furred black bear, and the magical spirit of the bear owned me. It is the only diversionary tactic that I know of to take such a swarm of mosquitoes off my mind. I tried to think like a US Marine Corp warrior; improvise, adapt, overcome. Semper Fi! I wanted to kill this black bear in the worst way, so damn the torpedoes and the mosquitoes, it’s killin time baby, and I will not be denied.
 
Even though I was in the epicenter of the world’s densest black bear population, at a bait site set up by one of the best, most experienced bear hunting guides in the world, we all know that hunting is, has been and always will be hunting. Right place and right time is always the guiding hunt dictum, and so far our merry camp if thirteen die hard bear hunters were skunked, and the naked gamepole was painful to look at. I was on a mission from God; redeem WFO Thunder bay Ontario BearCamp, and whack me a handsome Ursus rugsteakus, and quick.
 
Garth Matyasovoszky and his gung-ho hunt crazed guides operate WFO Outfitters up here in God’s Country Canada, and I was fortunate to share a spirited camp with a gang of my fellow Michiganiacs. Michigan hunters are found in pretty much every hunting camp around the world, for we Winter Water Wonderful sporters are the real McCoy, and we truly crave our hunting life. Watching these guys shoot their bows each day at the range was a clear indicator that something was going to die. I had my work cut out for me. And here it comes.
 
I am amazed that I can even see a bear in the ultra thick Canadian bush. Waist high and head high dense vegetation conceals the forest floor, and every dark shadow looks like a bear part if you look at it long enough. But after a lifetime of treestand time, dare I say, probably more than any human in history, my predator radar tends to pick up on every and any little indicator, and fortunately I saw the tan muzzle of this bear as it slowly swayed amongst the greenery at about 35 yards deep in the forest, and immediately knew it was a bear. And a good sized bear at that. After three long, bug biting days on stand, I was absolutely locked onto this animal with a throttling desire to kill it. Bears are not an endangered species, but this one was. Immanent, deadly danger.
 
To kill a bear with a bow and arrow is one of life‘s greatest challenges, but add the increased difficulty of capturing it all on video yourself, and we have us a genuine mission impossible. But they don’t call me the WhackMaster for nothing, and the predator ballet was in full swing mode as I slowly pushed the record button on my vidcam, and ever so slowly lifted my bow for the shot.
 
It was here where the kamakazi skeeters were in a maniacal feeding frenzy, a bloodsucking orgy of ravenous proportions on my face and bowstring hand. But I’m from Detroit, so I simply ignored them and concentrated on the ribcage of my quarry. When the big bear’s foreleg stretched out a little, my lightweight 50# Martin AlienX bow drew smoothly back to anchor, I picked out my favorite hair on the beast and sent my 400 grain love projectile dead center into the pumpstation. Now I’m not the world’s greatest bow shot by a long shot, but when I’m on and the Great Spirit is with me, the planets do align, and good luck saves my day. It was beautiful!
 
The scalpel sharp Magnus broadhead sliced in and out of the 300 pound beast in an instant with bright red blood spraying on everything. The bear ran 25 yards, stopped, swayed, took two steps and fell over dead, the classic death moan following less than five seconds after arrow impact. It was heavenly.
 
I immediately slapped a few thousand mosquitoes to death, then turned the vidcam on a very happy, smiling bowhunter’s face to rejoice the moment of truth that all bear hunters dream of. The jubilant exaltations were elevated to a passionate peak by the three days of challenging, difficult torture, and I danced the hunter’s kill dance of joy. Yes, I celebrated and glorified the bear’s death, for it was perfect, natural and exactly what I flew up to Canada for. The mighty Canadian rugsteak has landed baby, and it is partytime for real conservationists everywhere. I hunt to kill, and my dedication to be the best predator I can possible be is cause for maximum celebration, and the party never ends at the Nugent huntcamps. Know it, love it, live it, cherish it, kill it and grill it. I always do. Tooth, fang and claw is my life, and I couldn’t be happier.
 
The bloodtrail was a beautiful thing to behold. The Magnus broadhead had given me five incredible bloodtrails on bears so far this year, and this red river lead me to a very dead, very handsome, magnificent beast. My sow surely weighed a good 300 pounds plus, and her rich, shiny deep black coat was immaculate. I could barely drag her for a solo video recovery, but managed to set her up for a respectful salute to the black bear magic we all love so much. I could lose my hand in her long, thick hair, and her brown muzzle made her as pretty a black bear as you could ever want. I sat there deeply moved, even the bugs were forgotten in the presence of the mighty beast.
thunderbaybear
 
Back at camp, we all rejoiced our numerous kills that night, and the X on my bear’s heart told the story of my bowhunter dedication everyday at the range before each hunt to aim small, miss small. When hit properly, a bear dies fast, and makes for a very easy tracking job. Mid body behind the foreleg with a slight quartering away angle spells instant death, and I was happy I practiced everyday.
 
This gorgeous bear was going to make a fine rug, the sweet backstraps succulent on the grill, and the skull, teeth and claws would bring me powerful spirit medicine for my family. With more black bears in North America that at any time in recorded history, now is the time to plan a black bear hunt. The spirit of the mighty beast will be with you forever.
 
On this hunt, I used a 50# Martin AlienX bow, Sims Limbsaver arrow rest, fiber optic sight and accessories, Scott release, GoldTip 5575 arrows, 100 grain Magnus BuzzCut, Bushnell rangefinder and binoculars, Rhino Skin undergarments, Mossy Oak ScentLok and BugOff clothing, LaCrosse rubber boots, ThermaCell, Skin Armor soap, Code Blue scent eliminator and bear attractant, Outdoor Edge SwingBlade knife, 3Rd Arm vidcam arm, Hunter Safety fall restraint vest and Glenn‘s DeerHandle.

SHEMANE NUGENT IN AFRICA by Ted Nugent

SHEMANE NUGENT IN AFRICA                                       by Ted Nugent
 
The grace, the beauty, the shape, the form! I don’t know if I can handle it, in fact, I know I can’t! My wife Shemane is so beautiful, it is stupid, or at least it makes me stupid. But when she picks up her bow and arrow, gently knocks her arrow on the string, then smoothly draws her bow back to her lips, I gaze gaga, like a kid at his first dance. And dance we do!! I don’t know much about Venus, but if ever a woman was at her most sensuous, it is surely at full draw. Talking about eye candy! You oughtta try to videotape her in a small blind sometime and maintain your composure and focus. Is it getting hot in here?
 
Her dainty pink Martin bow looks so girly as it is, add her pink Victory arrows with the pink and white fletching, her pink ScentLok cap and the tight fitting pink Mossy oak camo t-shirt, and the whole package confirms that bowhunting is ultimately made for women. Shemane and I are dedicated to spread that word and recruit as many women into the greatest sport on earth as much as we can. I do believe it is the future.
 
We see and understand the amazing success of Lee and Tiffany on their TV shows. Sexy little Tif is stunning too, and more so when she draws down on one of those heart slamming monstrous Iowa behemoth whitetails. We got She Safari TV, Beyond The Lodge, Archers Choice, Pat and Nicole, the gorgeous Michelle Eichler on Muzzy Bad To The Bone TV. Everybody likes to watch Jim Shockey and more so when his beautiful wife joins him onscreen. Karen Meehall does an exemplary job on NRA’s American Hunter television, and more and more women are showing up on hunting shows all the time and I for one love it all. As Motley Crew sang, “Girls, Girls, Girls”. Let’s get it on!
 
Shemane shot her bow relentlessly as we prepared for our 6th African safari together, and she was shooting the prettiest arrows any bowhunter could ever dream of. At 15 out to 30 yards, her lightweight 40# Martin bow sent her 400 grain GoldTip Zebra arrows tipped with a  two blade100 grain razorsharp Magnus BuzzCut payload square into the pumpstation of our 3D targets with every arrow. Women are not just more beautiful when they shoot their bows, they are always better shots than men too. Something about superior patience and control, huh.
 
Having made clean one arrow kills on giant fallow, whitetails, rams, Oryx, impala, blesbok, kudu, wildebeest, waterbuck and zebra over the years, we were confident that her lightweight rig was perfectly suitable for bringing home the beast as long as arrow placement was, as usual, perfect. Here we go.
 
After the long flight, we pulled into Angus Brown’s Safari camp in the Orange Free State province of South Africa to unprecedented pouring rain. About 150 miles south east of Johannesburg, Angus operates numerous properties in this rolling, mountainous region loaded with zebra, blesbok, black wildebeest, springbok, reedbuck, eland, sable, duiker, steenbok and sable antelope. The occasional lion, leopard and Cape buffalo are in the area as well, just to keep things interesting.
 
A few days prior to our arrival, on his first day in camp, gung-ho bowhunter Jim Brown from Indiana arrowed a magnificent one ton Cape Eland with a perfectly placed Magnus broadhead. Now that’s how one baptizes his first African safari.
 
And in spite of incessant rain, an African bowhunters worse enemy, National Field Archery Association president Bruce Cull killed a record book common blesbok right off the bat. My boys can shoot!
 
Now that my BloodBrothers have fortified the meat locker with delectable African backstraps, the pressure was off and we were ready for a relaxing, fun filled bowhunting Safari in the Dark Continent. Spirits ran high.
 
The African hunter’s sun was burning pretty good on this hot afternoon, and since I headed off to another blind and guide Reon Van Tonder got called to track Jennifer’s waterbuck, Shemane ended up alone in her thatched elevated hide. The muddy puddle was 20 yards upwind, augmented with a mineral lick and some alfalfa. Though she was entertained by the ever present birdlife, no big game showed up for the first four hours.
 
But that all changed as the bewitching hour arrived, and the boredom was obliterated by the arrival of the Lord of the Bush-the mighty Kudu. Two fine, nearly invisible bulls stood at a distance amongst the scrub, surveying the waterhole for a long time before they cautiously approached. As the bigger of the two turned broadside for a drink, Shemane made sure the videocam was centered on the old boy and she let him have it with a pretty pink 400 grain projectile.
 
True to form, Shemane’s arrowed zinged square into the pocket where all the pumping takes place, and both bulls exploded outta Dodge in a heartbeat.
 
She text’d me of her excitement and we decided she should wait for reinforcements before tracking.
 
The dust from the departing kudu had barely settled before a group of young impala sauntered in for a drink, and as darkness fell, Almay picked Shemane up and Reon picked up the obvious bloodtrail.
 
Sadly, Shemane had rewound the tape to review her shot, gained confidence when she did, but rewound again to show me, and taped over the arrow hit moment. Curses!
 

The next morning Reon and his tracker picked up last blood and found the dead bull a few yards farther along the trail.
 
Her beautiful kudu bull taped nearly 50” of spiraling horn, and grand celebration erupted back at camp for an extended photo session with the Culls and Browns.
 
It is important to note that Shemane’s pretty pink camo Martin Leopard bow draws a dainty 40#, her pink Victory arrows and Magnus two blade BuzzCut broadheads, Lumenok and three 4” white TruFlight feathers weighs in at a kinetic energy generating 400 grains. This petite lady’s rig has killed many a large, tough big game like this 600 pound kudu, tenacious wildebeest, hard zebra and more. Shot placement and a razorsharp two blade, cut on impact broadhead is her proven backstrap setup, and if more guys would learn this simple, surefire formula for the women in their life, I do believe women bowhunter numbers would double lickety split as fast as it is implemented. Why it hasn’t yet remains a mystery to us. We hope that everybody reading this helps to spread the word as far and wide as possible. The joy Shemane experiences needs to be experienced by a few million more woman ASAP. Spread it!

Carbon Express f15 dual blade broadheads.

I was wondering if anybody has used these broadheads yet and if they are what they are hyped up to be. I have watched a few videos on them on youtube and they look like they will work well but I was wondering from another hunters point of view what kind of results people had with them.

Thanks
