Re: Thinking about the New Grizzly

I am 6'3" 260#, the Grizzly feels good to shoulder and has plenty of power to take any game I would hunt. All my whitetail shots have been 25 yards or less, all pass-through. I am partial to using the stock set up, with the 150 grain bolt-cutters.

Re: Boltcutter Kills

Deer dropped within sight, I did not take pictures. My opinion is: hunting from a ground blind you do not get as good blood trails because the arrow penetrates more or less on the level and the body cavity fills up. Shooting from a tree stand the arrows enters from the top to the bottom, blood leaks...

Re: Recommendation for beginner

First, check your local hunting regulations. ( required arrow length, draw weight max or minimums ). Visit your local Excalibur dealer and see which bows fit you well, shoot them and choose the one you like best. Personally I really enjoy my Matrix Grizzly.

Re: Buying dad a crossbow.

I hunt WV and purchased the Grizzly. Shot a doe with it this year and got a pass through. I use the 150 Grain fixed blade. Love the bow and it is not difficult to cock using the cocking rope.

Re: How Much Speed Is Really Needed

More variables come at the additional yardage. IMO gaining a few more fps wont make much difference when you consider everything else that comes in to play.

Will it hurt, no. Is it a good excuse to get a new crossbow... Of Course!

Re: most accurate arrow & broadhead

At a target distance of 40 yards, shooting at the same spot.... 150 grain boltcutter with diablo shafts will ruin every arrow you shoot. I shoot using the Matrix Grizzly.
