Re: How affordable would a compound x-bow need to be to be attractive?

To just get out there, anything under a few hundred dollars seems attractive. But once you've got a few Excalibur's in your stable nothing with wheels seems attractive any more. I'd rather dust off the old ExoMax than drop coin on a wheeled crossbow. If I wanted wheels, I'd drop coin on a low pounda...

Re: Vortex crossfire ii long range test.

It looks like you have the speed ring dialed in well. You can certainly see the bow and scope's potential. The forty yard zero sounds familiar. The Bear X Speedcomp 1.5-5x32 scope had 50 yards in the center. For that reason, I got rid of it. Otherwise it was a good scope. Since all my hunting shots ...

Re: Trailcam Pic thread

Checked my cams and they were full of doe and spots. Here's the biggest horns I had on cam. :shock: https://wjrwcw.bn.files.1drv.com/y4mii7731bN7yHAPlNOCn4_FdbGcTJkppe6fajsTL75SXxc39GrA8lV9au78E7aZsV_BlaXmM2bKPAfCpZTfQQPkdKGUjOdUORPVj9xzLWq4QzCIu0vOIeVJY0kJRU0RaO4EH-n4VwBQrBXz1Wl-GYV-vw4pxzLRE2n9l3k...

Re: dead Zone scope question.

There should be no difference. Octane is a brand of accessories marketed by Bowtech. Back in 2014 Excalibur was acquired by Bowtech. It wasn't long after 2014 that some of the Excalibur crossbow accessories started having the Octane name applied to them.

Oh certainly off a rest. I'd be happy to hit the target at all at that distance shooting free handed.

Way out there...

Last week I made a trip down to Arkansas to visit family and I took my Micro 400TD because I knew we'd toss a few arrows as entertainment during a fish fry. My brother has a small pond on his property that I was interested in shooting across. I figured it to be about a 75 yard shot which is a bit fa...

Re: Shortages

Our dicks and Walmart literally have no fishing line and fishing isles are bare I'm only a few hours Southwest of you and we have the same around here. I wonder if people are eating it because I haven't seen an increase in folks on the water when I've been fishing. :lol: There are a lot of odd thin...

Re: Whaaaat!

My latest Excal wasn't cheap, but that is ridiculous. And to think they recommend replacing the string and cables every two years, or at 400 shots if that comes sooner. Strings and cables are $109.99 US and you'll need to take it (or ship it) to a dealer unless you want to drop $259.99 US for their ...

Re: Trailcam Pic thread

Your season looks very promising grassy. Back before mid-June, I was getting photos of almost nothing but bucks. Then the doe dropped their fawns and that's about all I'm seeing ever since. I know the bucks are around, but I haven't caught a good picture in a month. Here is the best picture I had be...

Re: Is this REALLY a crossbow???

If it shoots an arrow doesn’t mean it’s a bow! Heck I can shoot a arrow with a slingshot but it’s not a bow. Yet in Virginia they call that a slingbow and it is legal to use during archery season. The air powered arrow rifles they mention above they call an arrow gun. They are also legal, but only ...

Re: Is this REALLY a crossbow???

Not only is this not a crossbow, I don't think you can call it a bow at all. Bows have limbs. This appears to be spring driven. They make air powered arrow rifles. To me this is more like a spring powered arrow rifle. Putting a crossbow rail on it instead of a barrel doesn't make it a crossbow. It's...

Re: Micro Suppressor 400TD = Power in excess

I haven't had to adjust my takedown adjustment screw at all. Everything goes together just as snug as it did on day one. Maybe I'm just lucky. Those Innerloc Carnage look interesting. They were definitely thinking outside the box on the design. I would be interested to see if the wrap keeps the blad...

Micro Suppressor 400TD = Power in excess

After tossing almost 350 shots I've finally settled on a broadhead for the upcoming season for my 400TD. I was looking for something that was bulletproof that could withstand the fierce launch. Although I found some fold-back style blades that would stay closed on launch and not break on entry, I wa...
