Re: The new Excalibur crank

to me this is the biggest let down from Excalibur ever! I was so bumbed when I seen this massive contraption after telling everyone I new those hollow but's and that lug on all these new bows was for the new crank for the bows. Then find out it is as big and clumsy as the C2 I already have, and don'...

Re: Matrix 380 Owners

I have owned a Suppressor, Micros, Matrix 405, 330, and Exo series bows, but those are gone but I still own the 380,, and this why, 50 yards, 5 shots, at 1.5" bulls, and every arrow inside the bottom half of the bull, all within 1/2 of the exact same POI. https://s19.postimg.org/ip9d9hhf7/3scope_lev...

Re: Any Info On Excalibur Assassin Crossbow ???

Sorry, Id like to see a convenient portable crank cocker, on and off without tools, I was hoping for it to be a snap to change from Micro to Suppressor to Bulldog, but this don't look like an answer to any of my dreams, quite the opposite. I'd go back to the Suppressor which I did like, just wanted ...

No hunt'n fer me,,, I'm outa here

Well we have had the hottest days of the year the last week, so I ain't in the mood. I refuse to hunt when it seems like growing season,, I like hunting when the highs are below 55 ot 60, and there is frost in the morning. Then we have my Salmon grounds with no water and no fish, or very few, and hi...

Re: Venting and asking for input

I gotta agree with others,, 50% deposit or full payment to get on the list,,, I don't think the 50% is out of line if someone really want's it. The full payment would my choice, and I think I've sent payment before one has come before, if they are not willing to those terms,, I don't how they could ...

Re: Basspro and Cabela's

I gave up on Cabela's long ago,, they have become no more than a glorified Dick's in my opinion, only difference in what they sell is Cabelas has there name pasted to the same stuff Dick's sells without labels and for 1/4 the price! I don't waste my time anymore, Dick's Cabela's Bass Pro,, don't mat...

Re: Is modern hunting actually easier?

I think it makes hunting for me harder, unfortunately there are many that think 50 or 60 fps makes hunting easier, and along with those incorrect thoughts comes hundreds of new archers who don't know anything about hunting and runs everything out of the area before even they even have a chance to hu...

Re: adjust hunting strategy when temps 86F +

First thing I do is make sure my bow out of the vehicle,, then after breakfast I make sure the air conditioning is set to 72*, the fresh natural apple cider (this time of year) is ice cold, and the satellite receiver remote is within arms reach,,,,, then I set back and watch anything but those stupi...

Re: What do you guys climb with

I usually don't, but when I do I use the best,, my Timber Tall Super Brute,, with upgrade padded seat and backrest,,, the only problem is I seem to nod off frequently when I'm this comfortable!
