Re: Length of Excalibur ownership?

I have had my Micro Bulldog 355 for 3 days now. Lol I have slowed down on bow purchases. I'm saving for a big hunting trip in 2019. I'll be 50 and it's time to spend my money on hunts instead of bows that I don't really need... :) I don't live to far from you so when is the bow clearance sale :D

Re: Arrow day

Not sure why but I made up a few shafts for the micro with those vanes on a helical twist and they all hit in a different spot. I thought maybe it was the vane going down the rail on an angle that throws them off. I took them off and went back to the straight 2 inch parabolic round back and they fly...

Re: How hot is too hot for you to hunt

Only time it was too hot for me was a couple years ago I went for the velvet hunt in Kentucky first week of September and it was 90 all week. The heat didn't really bother me but it bothered the deer as I only saw one out in daylight.

Re: Nocturnal Deer

I didn't read the article but where I hunt there are guys that hunt all around me. They all put out corn for bait. I usually see where they put the piles and then set up back on a trail that leads to it. Usually the deer hit the bait after or just before dark so they are passing me in the daylight ....

Re: 335 Speed ?

Interesting. Shot 6 bolts ranging from 406.4 to 408.7 grains. Slowest was 352.8 fastest 364.2 fps. Unusually take the string off and back out and lubricate the limb bolts so they don't rust in at end of every season. Not sure what gen assuming first I've had it 2 years and sure the shop had it at le...

335 Speed ?

I have had my micro 335 a couple years now. I have been shooting the quil bolts but don't really like them. I decided to make up a few of my own to try. I got out the chrony to test them. I never did shoot the quils through the chrony. The arrows I made up with a hundred grain field point weigh 406 ...
