Re: Best add-ons for Grizz2?

I'd upgrade the scope rings. The factory supplied ones leave a lot to be desired.

Re: Which new head to try for 2018?

I think seeing this video sealed the deal for me. SpitfireMAXX it is!

Which new head to try for 2018?

I'm interested in trying a new broadhead for 2018. I like the NAP Lineup and two heads have caught my eye. Which of the two do you think I'm best off trying first? NAP DoubleCross (crossbow) https://26yz9t1a1vtd2yndnc3a2jo5-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/spitfire-doublecross-300x...

Re: Shot to vitals, bolt deflects into the guts!

Very true, the exit wound was sealed shut with guts and a pile a leaves! What you're saying makes sense. I think my next broadhead of choice is going to be the Grizz Trick 2. Put that flixed blade to the test. Seeing how the KillZone compares to the Grizz Trick should put the debate to rest :lol: :l...

Re: Shot to vitals, bolt deflects into the guts!

MAYBE it was slightly quartering towards me. Slightly. But if it reacted to the shot it would mean that she turned towards the shot, that hypothesis has me baffled. I'm almost certain she did the opposite, she turned AWAY from me after the shot.

This really has me questioning those 40-45 yard shots everyone are talking about!

Re: Shot to vitals, bolt deflects into the guts!

I thought the same thing, but at 20yards? It had time to move so much?

Re: Shot to vitals, bolt deflects into the guts!

The entry wound was MASSIVE, you can tell it easily had the 2'' cut that you expect from the KillZone, and from her running, that wound stretched to 4-5 inches on the hide. I see your point, but I don't think failure to open was the culprit. Also inside the chest cavity I could easily see that the b...

Shot to vitals, bolt deflects into the guts!

I got my first xbow harvest this season and I'm super pumped :lol: :lol: :lol: Also my first adult doe :lol: :lol: :lol: The shot that I took was at only 20 yards using 100GR Killzone Broadheads on 385GR Bolts using my Micro335! The shot was strange as when I took it, it was a perfect broadside shot...

adjust hunting strategy when temps 86F +

It's going to be 100F with humidity tomorrow and I'm hunting in Quebec province!

How do you adjust your hunting technique when temps are hot at 86F + (30C+)

Crossbow bolt repairs : life hack

You can improvise a rear nock for a crossbow bolt out of a .22 Magnum cartridge casing (it has a flat base and it's made from brass)!

Re: ALLEN PREMIER ***MICRO*** CROSSBOW CASE CAMO

I did my first mod to this case and I'm very happy with it. You know how the quiver compartment tends to get squashed under the weight of the bow? In that compartment I cut to length a rectangular piece of heavy duty shipping cardboard and now I can chuck my bolts in there and they don't get deforme...
