Been a long time since I have posted ...

Post by MI Yeti » Thu Dec 14, 2017 11:40 am

Been a long time, hope you guys are having successful deer seasons . I have not hunted with my crossbow in about 4 years now . I did do some target shooting with my Exocet 165 and it was still as accurate as ever . Got it ready for archery season but never did hunt with it . I got a Button buck on opening day of firearm season with my .50 airgun . My truck broke down and I was only able to get out one day with a borrowed suv so I shot what I saw so I could get some meat . He was 85lbs dressed . I do wish Excalibur made a new bow that I liked, might get me back into crossbow hunting . I considered a compound crossbow but I just don't like em very much .

Hey welcome back, MI Yeti. I have just returned to the forum myself after being away for a couple years. Congrats on your Button. I have yet to even see a deer so far, let alone harvest one :shock: . I've only been out a couple of times, though. But the season's not over yet 8) . I'm curious, what kind of crossbow would you like to see Excalibur make to get you interested again?

Traditional stock, lower draw weight, solid color would be nice but not a deal breaker . I don't ever see them making a new bow like that though . I have not seen any new crossbows like that that are well made .

Glad airguns aren't legal in Ohio (for deer), that would be another expensive method I'd have to try. :lol: :lol:
I'm with you on not being too excited about the newer models. I prefer the traditional stock design with where the safety is located on the Excalibur crossbows.

Yeah the saftey placement is one of the reasons I prefer a tradition stock on an Excalibur . The other is that I find the current thumbhole stocks to be very ugly . The old exo series ones look fine . If they moved the saftey to the trigger guard and redesigned the stocks to look decent I would not mind them .

More and more states are allowing airguns for deer, better look out :mrgreen: . It is pretty addicting .
