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...

Re: Are They Hidden

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...

Re: Crows ain't all that smart !

Got an Owl decoy? I've heard stories of shooting crows until they were out of shells. Recently I had a group of 4 pestering my dog & cat. Got 1 off the top of the barn with the 22. Week or so later blew one up with the 25-06 about 350 yds out in the field. Have not seen the other 2 since :D. Czy_Horse

Zombie Tough

First time I've ever had any arrow aluminum or carbon survive a close encounter with a 2x4 :shock:. The arrow was sticking about 4 inches out the back of the pressure treated 2x4, I removed the field point, then I using a hammer/hammer and 3/8 punch I was able to drive the arrow back out. http://i99...

Re: C2 crank question

It's the rope slipping into position on the reel as you crank. Watch the take up reel, I find just after it starts the second layer the rope will slip/roll. Nothing to do with the bows.
