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.

Changing your string and adjusting brace height is a lot easier if you are using a C2 crank with the stringing aid.

Re: Bulldog Targets for Boofest

I got the wooden frame put together for my target. http://i993.photobucket.com/albums/af51/Czy_Horse/20170628_112732.jpg I noticed yesterday that my arrows were picking up little melted plastic residue from the target face. A little dab of arrow lube worked to clean the arrows and keep it off while ...

Re: Bulldog Targets for Boofest

Back on topic :lol:. My new target showed up yesterday. First impressions, heavier than I thought. I had to test it out :mrgreen: , I shot it point blank with my 380. There was still ample room to grab arrow shaft in front of blazers. A firm grip with 2 fingers to remove arrows. Only one small whinn...

Re: Bulldog Targets for Boofest

We're going to build a wall, a big beautiful wall all along the border of the pasture to keep those arrows on the right side of the fence :oops:
