I have had my Micro Bulldog 355 for 3 days now. Lol

I have slowed down on bow purchases. I'm saving for a big hunting trip in 2019. I'll be 50 and it's time to spend my money on hunts instead of bows that I don't really need... :)
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.

My first crossbow was an Exomax purchased in 2011. I found it highly effective on deer and it just feels right in my hands. I don't see any point in buying one of the more recent Excalibur models.

I bought my first, a Wolverine @ Lake Huron Rod & Gun, in Sept. 1987. My Aunt passed away leaving my a $1000 in her will, spent the whole wad on bow, scope, arrows, broadheads, case & the newest Treebark camo. I still have the bow and it still makes it out of storage for a round or 2 of target shooting every year. I still think it's my 'quietest' crossbow.

I guess I'm old fashioned. I've been married for 45 years, drive a 1923 Model T Ford, and have had only two jobs since graduating from college. I have a Matrix 380 and a 350. I don't plan on making any changes in the formentioned ant time soon.

I have owned Excalibur's for 25 years. Have owned 5 different models and fired many more. In my opinion the Matrix 380 is the best I have ever had. I will always own an Excalibur until my hunting days are done.

hell I don't know, ain't to good at math,, but I know I had the Lynx as soon as they were avalable, and was so happy with it, I had the M380 Mad Max as soon as it was released,,, still got em. The 350 Matrix, I had before Excalibur decided to cut the 405's up they had left in stock, so I've had a realtree 350 before they were available. I have not had one problem yet, had a splinter on the Mad Max when it was new. Danny Miller offered new limbs but I see no reason to quit using what I have 5 years later,, not when it shoots 5 arrows like this at 50 yards

This is the limb, I just broke it of, and lightly sanded the sharp edge it left, you can't even see where it was! Still nock'n them whitetails down and stalk'n em up!

Bought my bare Vixen in 1996. I'll keep it until I don't hunt anymore, and that will be at my life end.
