Re: Scope sight in at 25 yards?

I switched scopes yesterday myself. I was using a Barska three dot 3x32 IR Contour, but due to going to some heavier arrows It was no longer anywhere close to being on after 20 yards with the other aim points so I switched to a straight power 4x with duplex crosshairs. Sighted in at 25 yards (main c...

Re: Best Buck Ever! Brown Bear 225 gets it done!

I just went and looked at the photo (s) from 2009 and 2010 that was posted of this deer. Unless he had a clone that looked just like it and fell on the same leaves as this pkoto...were being dooped. :oops:

Re: Buck Bomb

Re: Piece of my Excalibur equiptment I hate the most.

I switched from the Excalibur Quiver to the 3 arrow Kwickiee Quiver. I have it mounted on the bow with the standard Excalibur mount that fastens under the riser. I carry my crossbow on a sling on my back and have never had an issue with my arrows coming loose. I even carry a back pack with me when I...

That special time of year

I love the fall! I got a chance to get in the woods this morning but I still have to hunt off the ground because I haven’t got my tree stand back up yet. We had a hard freeze here last night and I figured it would be a good morning even if I was getting a late start. The sun had already started to p...

Scrath one thief

As you may have read on an earlier post, I had a tree stand and stick ladder stolen sometime between 7 A.M., and 4 O’clock this past Tuesday from where I hunt at. :evil: I spent 24 years as a cop, half in drug intervention and the other half as an Investigator. It took me four days but I tracked the...

Re: FOC at only 4.6%

XX75 but what arrow, 2216...2219? I have just got some XX75 2219 and added Gold Tip II brass inserts to them to give me a better front of center (just over 10%) and I still use 100 grain broadheads.

Re: Changing arrows

I'm shooting the Phoenix, I'm hoping to be getting around 280 or 285 out of it with my boo string but I kind of doubt it. But like you say it should be accurate.I know that their will be a big difference between a 401 grain Gold Tip and this 546 grain monster. Thats a difference of 145 grains. :shock:

Changing arrows

With only three arrows left out of six and season still far from over here in Georgia, I was forced to get out yesterday and buy some more arrows. As normal for me I went to the local bow shop and wouldn’t you know it, he was out of Gold Tip Lazer II’s and said that it would be at least a week or tw...

Bad day

Didn’t get to go hunting this morning because of an appointment I had to be at, so this afternoon when I went to get in my tree stand…It wasn’t there! Sometime between dark last night and 4 O’clock this afternoon, someone helped themselves to it. Hope they actually use it and don’t trade it for drug...

Re: Hey Boo!

Thank you for your response. I knew they were going to be a little heavy but my max range is only 30 yards so I didn't think it would make that much difference. I guess we'll see. :lol:

Re: Ga. doe down!!

Congratulations on your nanny, I had the same thing happen on the 7 point I got a couple of days ago. Good shot but no blood trail. Blew my mind considering the hole he had in him.
