Re: NAP Spitfire out of a crossbow

Like I said I never had a problem. I have shot many deer with the same heads, but I do change the blades and the retention clips after each deer I shoot. The way I look at it is one it does cost about 20 bucks foe a three pack of replacement blades but it is well worth it knowing that I know that I'...

Re: NAP Spitfire out of a crossbow

I have been using NAP Spitfire Max and regular Spitfire's for a long time and never had one open up. I use the 125 grain and have great success. My xcals are Vortex and I switched from that to the Micro 335. They do make good entrance and big exits. Really good blood trails if they go that far.

Re: Excalibur micro 355 mechanical broadhead

NAP Spitfire Max 125 grain they are on my stocked Quills. Have never had a problem using them and they shoot real well. I have shot them with my Vortex and on my Micro 335. Great blood trails. I have taken a good bit of Deer over the years with them.

Re: Reducing scent

I have been Bear hunting a few times and I do use the Sent Killer Gold also, but I hang my clothes outside and then what ever the vegetation is in the area I will rub some that from the ground. One thing I also used and had to problem with is Thermacell. I used the regular one. Now I see they have a...

Re: My favorite stand

Joe,
I had a stand a few years back we called it the gillie tree stand. The guys I hunt with we took a lot of 🦌 out of it. The funny part is that is was not that high off the ground. I finally lost it to Mother Nature. I always look for them vines to hand stands. I think they are great cover.

Re: Hawke XB 30 Pro

The best advice is go look thru the scope and see what you think. This is what I did to compare them. This helped me with my decision to buy it.

Re: The perfect crossbow scope reticle

I picked up the Micro 335 a few years ago and it came with a Octane scope as the standard package. This scope I had no propblem with until last year when my eyes started to play a factor using it that age thing. I listen to a lot of good recommendations on this site about scopes. I ended up getting ...

Re: questions about a new scope

I upgraded to a Hawke XB Pro SR and I have had no problem with it at all. It's clear and the illumination is a blessing for low light conditions. So far this year I have taken 5 Deer from 20-45 yards. The scope a bit expensive compared to some others out there. I can not say anything bad about the s...

Re: Spitfire Broadhead Question

I have been using NAP Broadheads for a long time. The one I use now is the Spitfire Max 125 grain. It's a great Broadhead. They fly really good. As far as the crossbow ones I was told the retention clips are a little heavier on them. I have shot many a deer with them and had no problems. They have c...
