Re: 2019-20 Regs

Thanks. I took a look for those on the MNR site last Wednesday when I was filling out my vacation request for Turkey. I was hoping to fill out my forms for moose and deer too but they still had last year's regs then. I guess I was just a day or 2 early.

Re: Northern brothers

Thanks Gerald. Sadly, this day probably goes by largely unobserved up here. It's not a holiday and our memorial for it is over in France. Our prime minister makes a speech but unless it's a slow news day it rarely gets much if any mention in the media. Exceptions were the 90th anniversary ceremony a...

Re: Does anyone make their own lighted nocks?

Re: Vintage Excalibur model ID

Actually after looking at the picture . This is a first generation Relayer because of the manual safety inside the trigger area . But has been upgraded with a cast aluminum riser and carved tip limbs . So prolly a custom or repair job? That's fine with me. From what I can gather from reading other ...

Re: Vintage Excalibur model ID

...You have a carved tip model and I would recommend getting a couple new strings for it as the age on the one that is on it could be substantial. I know Danny Miller the U.S. service rep can sell you one ask for Carved Tip String to get proper loop size 740 483 2312 ,or if you are in Canada call E...

Re: Vintage Excalibur model ID

I am not familiar with that model but I beleave it is a Relayer if it is marked as such on the trigger. It is a Relayer . Thanks for the input. Most of what I have read so far says that the Relayer had a one piece Astro Daco limb and the Wolverine was the 1st model that used the split limb system. ...

I've been hunting with a crossbow for around 30 years and got my 1st Excalibur, a Vixen, probably 20+ years ago. Until now it has been my only bow having traded the Barnett I owned before it towards the...
