Re: Any bear hunters? What's your favorite...

I'm 12 and a half, but my Dad took me hunting on his back when I wore diapers. I shot my first rabbit and turkey when I was 3 years old with a 410 double barrel. I shot my first deer the day before I turned 8. I have hunted and taken deer, hogs, Ibex, Bison, three different rams, muntjac, mountain g...

Any bear hunters? What's your favorite...

I'm going bear hunting at the end of May. My Dad's friend says that we should be able to see the bears on the camera before we go and know which one to wait for. If we wait for a good one it should be near 300 pounds according to him. Does anyone have a favorite XBow, bolt, scope or broadhead specif...

Re: Axiom value

If it has the scope, quiver and 4 bolts, and cocking rope I see them around here for just $225-$275. If it has a replacement scope that is very good it brings more. I have one with a Nikon Bolt. Right now the scope is worth as much as the bow without it. It seems a lot of people are "upgrading" :roll:

Re: Black Bear as tabel fair

My Mom won't eat a whitetail deer but likes black bear meat. I like it better than deer but not as much as an elk or antelope.

Re: Matrix 380 $849 right now

Pine Mountain Archery in W. Va sells the Matrix 380 Lite Stuff Package for $679 with free shipping within US. They have these all day every day. That's still too much for me, but that's the best price for a new M380 package that I've seen.

Matrix questions

I see some with black rails, some with grey and some Camo. Is there a difference? A couple are described as pre-Bowtech. Is that a big deal? Most I’ve been reading about are 380’s but these differences might apply to other Matrix models. Oh yeah there’s a white one too.

Re: Wtb kids camo

If you PM your address my brother and I will gladly send you anything that does not fit us anymore. We are around 5' tall and I'm 100 pounds, my brother is 120. If the girls are less than that we should have some stuff that fits.

Last 5 days of deer season

Re: FPS v. Penetration

But I don't see anything with crossbows, or that compares the exact same arrow or bolt at different speeds.

FPS v. Penetration

Is there a resource that shows penetration tests of the same weight arrow with the same weight head at different speeds?

When does speed make a real difference in penetration, with the same projectile?

How much cutting diameter makes a differnce?

I'm wondering what the real difference is between different cutting diameters of broadheads in hunting.

If a fixed blade is 1 inch and you got to a 1 1/8th cut does it mean a lot? How about 1 3/16th?

If an expandable is 1 1/2 inch and you go to a 2 inch, what does that really get you?
