Serial Number Rant!

Lets have a show of hands for those that enjoy the Perp walk to the till at Canadian Tire when you want to buy a box of 22 shells or a Swiss Army Knife. Excalibur has rolled belly up and is giving the Government away to "Register" our bows, away for the Government to record who bought it. The Govern...

Re: excaliber wolverine

Don't forget - use only Dacron strings! As for sighting in your Wolverine. If you have the same Tasco 2.5X scope that came on my Wolverine in 1987. I'm using an arrow weights around 430 grains. For the 3D target range, I have my Wolverine is set it up like this - centre cross-hairs @25 yds, then whe...

I thought Excalibur had a compound bow at one point is that accurate and if it was what was the name of the bow ?
That would be the Max Point.
I was thinking of the Paradox.

Bugs!

Re: Quiver on or off when hunting?

I used a hip quiver until I got the Exocet c/w a quiver. The quiver attachment bracket is attached to my day pack. I never liked the 'extra weight' or the 'off balance' feel of a quiver full of arrows hanging on my bow. KISS

Re: Length of Excalibur ownership?

I bought my first, a Wolverine @ Lake Huron Rod & Gun, in Sept. 1987. My Aunt passed away leaving my a $1000 in her will, spent the whole wad on bow, scope, arrows, broadheads, case & the newest Treebark camo. I still have the bow and it still makes it out of storage for a round or 2 of target shoot...

The 'Peep Site' setup that came with my 2009 Exocet 200 looks like this.

Re: Matrix 380 Owners

The 380's are my go to bow's. I've had them for just over 2 years, no issues with either of them. https://i.imgur.com/e5yFsItl.jpg I still think the Lynx is the 'prettiest' bow they have ever made :oops: . https://i.imgur.com/zLqr567l.jpg I do like how small and compact my Suppressor is but, the 380...

Only 3 times here :cry:. The chronic fatigue and other crap with this West Nile Virus has kept me from my usual outdoor activities.

Re: Is the Mission Sub 1 giving Excal a run for its money?

My first Excalibur is still quite capable of killing most of the North American game animals we hunt. It's now 30 years old. I used the Wolverine for 22 seasons before I bought my Exocet 200. The only maintenance it got was a new string, a bit of wax and a couple drops of oil at the start of each se...

The above statements are my exact sentiments before I even read them. Money up front before the build. Period. Also, I know string building isn't your livelihood Don. Having said that, I would keep a list of people not to sell strings to. That's an easy way to avoid some irritations.

Re: Crossbow level

Lots of cheap options on ebay & amazon but the shipping costs are retarded. Cheapest option I could find in the local hardware store was a string line level. I carefully took it apart with a set of side cutters :mrgreen:. Used silicone to attach to riser. http://i993.photobucket.com/albums/af51/Czy_...

OT -Hunters Orange Dog Vest

I've been looking for a hunter's orange vest for my beagle pup. She's mostly brown in colour and is really hard to see in in the fall under growth. I've asked at pet stores etc. and have only found hunter's orange collars available. Anyone know of a store in SW Ontario or an on-line location? Want t...
