Re: Exocet similar to ??

The stock and the color of the limbs is basically the difference. There was a Exocet that was less than 200 lbs. The 200 pound one should be marked Exocet 200.

Re: Anybody gotstid locusts?

Locust year in central PA will NOT be until 2025

I got into this in 2004 when people around here said it was locust year. It was NOT.

Locust years here were 1957, 1974, 1991, 2008, and the next time will be 2025

Locusts a come in different years in different areas.

Re: Which Scope

I use Leupold Vari-x-III and VX-III 1.5-5x20 with heavy duplex. Vari-x-II shotgun scopes 1-4x20 with heavy duplex also make a good crossbow scope.

Re: Wow!! No punches pulled!!

When I hunted with a vertical compound, I tried to have deer close enough to spit on them. Now with the crossbow, 30 yards and closer.
