bucont

Does anyone here know whatever became of forum member bucont? He was a regular here years back and was making turkey calls under the Meadowbrooke Calls name. I bought a couple off him and the slate call is still in use every season. His last post was in 2013 and he said he was having a biopsy done o...

Re: Turkey box calls

No undeterminded intended but the whole rosin thing, didnt sound any different to me. Maybe I should try colored chalk!? It's not really a sound thing, it's more about one application being good for two or three years as opposed to chalk which needs regular application. Also, rosin is pretty much i...

Re: Turkey box calls

I started using violin bow rosin a few years ago on the recommendation of a custom call maker. I can get two or more seasons between applications and it's not affected by damp or raining weather. No more chalk for me. May I ask what form this rosin comes in? Is it a solid block and how do you apply...

Re: Boofest 2020 is going to be cancelled

That's the prudent choice Don. Lots of disruptions and cancellations due to this virus and we've come to accept that that's just the way this year is shaping up. We're certainly going to miss Boofest this summer but we're already looking forward to next year. :-)

Boofest 2019 pics

Bring 'um on folks! Another great Boofest weekend. :D A bit if a smaller crowd this year (we'll be expecting doctor's notes or death certificates from those who were unable to show up) but a great time was had by all. Thanks again to Don and Karin (and family) for going above and beyond to make this...

Re: Excalibur Current Models Best Suited For 3D/Target?

Used to shoot a lot of 3D and to be honest the best target bows were, and still are n my my opinion, the lower poundage Exo series bows. An older Vixen or Phoenix would fit all your criteria to a T.

Re: Excalibur Date of Manufacture by Serial #

If it has a serial number/barcode by the riser bolt it's 2018 and newer. Otherwise you'll need to go by model release dates to get a ballpark. Thank you for the reply. I would think a call to Dawn might help, Excalibur would surely have recorded serial numbers by date. Regards Wayne They didn't hav...

I found that if you go south of the border you are able to find the 5 watt radios. we only carry to 2 watt up here.
True but most two radios purchased outside of Canada are not ISED approved therefore technically not legal for use in Canada.

Re: Two Way Radios

We don't use radios anymore. We have good cell coverage everywhere we hunt and texting is more reliable and silent. But if radios are what will work for you be aware of a couple of things. FRS radios are all limited to 1/2 watt so their range will be quite limited. GMRS radios can go up to 5 watts t...
