Re: Old Buck :(

So sad to get the news this morning. Our hunting circles and the crossbow community has lost one of it's elders. I can say it.certainly was a pleasure to go afield with him over the years. Not many from that generation left to share the stories from days gone by. His outdoors legacy is alive and wel...

Ray is alive and kicking and I believe FLbuckmaster is still around despite some serious health issue...

Re: New Trail camera law in Pa.

So if that were the case here and someone got caught stealing my trail cam the government would get $1,800. Only the government could legally profit from someone else's loss. I'm in the wrong business.

Re: Torn (Vixen VS Axiom)

You're not likely to find an Axiom that cheap. Re read my post, bare bones brown Vixen can often be found on the used market that cheap. The brown ones have been out of production since 2008. They sell cheap on the used market for various reasons, mostly because everyone is camo crazy and speed craz...

Re: Torn (Vixen VS Axiom)

I'd go for the Axiom just because I think it's better value for your dollar. Clean bare bones brown Vixens (no scope or accessories) can be had on the used market for around $250-$275.

Re: Torn (Vixen VS Axiom)

Is this a new Vixen? It's been a long time since Excal has made brown Vixens. Also, what are 'rail upgrades"?

Re: Bow for boofest

Check with Don but I believe the fundraising aspect of Boofest will not be a big focus this year.

Actually Paul we're more like the poster children for "we're usually broke and can't afford to fix it". :lol:

Re: Why so much upgrading??

It's the constant pursuit of perfection. Just when you think you have a perfect set-up something better comes along.. lol You are correct, which is why I abandoned that pursuit years ago and focused on contentment. I'm quote happy with the Phoenix I got in 2006 and have been shooting it ever since....

Re: Max distance Excal Vixen (TARGET ONLY)

500 gr total arrow weight is pretty heavy for a target arrow. You'd probably be better off with done around 350 gr total weight.

Re: Who shoots 3D shoots with a crossbow?

How do the scores compare between the top crossbow shooters and the top open class compound shooters. I can't see the crossbow scores being any bet or even as good as the compound guys myself. It's easier to hold a open class compound setup correctly still on target than it is a crossbow free hande...
