Re: Vortex or Not??

I believe that the Vortex is right up there with the Equinox and both are excellent model CBs, accurate and very rugged. This is mine with a Boo string.

Re: drsturrip on a equinox?

This may help. I shortened my cocking rope so that I have to pull up on the string about 8" to set the 2nd hook on my Equinox. I have no knowledge of the drsturrip.

Re: Slick Trick Questions

The 150 gr Slick Trick Mags have the same POI as 150 gr field points on my 20" BEEs with a total weight at 485 gr & FOC of 18.9%. I put the NuFletch Ignitor nocks on also.

Re: The Crush Deer Cam

I loved to watch Anvil shake the feeder with his massive antlers to make the corn fall out. What a magnificent animal.
