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.

Re: S5 Suppressors

Came standard on my Equinox and I installed the S5s on the Vortex & Axiom. Makes checking BH easy peasy as I just set a 1/8" to 1/4" gap to the rubbers. Rotate the rubbers after several shots to prolong life. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Excalibur-S5-String-Suppression-System-1966/352665821729?hash=item...

Re: 60 days until bow season

9/7 in NC. Ditto what Riflemanz said and don't leave home without your Thermacell.

Equinox at about 25 yards from a picnic table. I never shoot the same bull more than once.

Re: Age/ getting old /cocking a crossbow

Just passed the big 80 & my Equinox is getting a little harder to cock but still doable. Had the widow maker a few years ago which required 4 stents and that has slowed me down somewhat. Hunt from a ladder stand now & call one of my sons or grandsons if I get lucky.

Re: Looking for a Harness

The HSS harness is comfortable with lots of pockets for storing small items. I am north of 80 & fell from a 16' stand because I was too dumb to wear a safety harness. Check out this HSS model. I now stay hooked up anytime my feet are off the ground. https://huntersafetysystem.com/collections/harness...

Re: High FOC, high momentum

Could you list your arrow length and balance point as I want to compare to my BEEs for FOC%? Thanks

Re: String suppressors question for Equinox

I thought that the Equinox came standard with the S5 string stops.

Re: Questions for any hunter here in NC

Lee county, I have sat 9 times in a tree stand and only seen tree rats. I believe that it has been very warm but BP opens 10/28 and we are due for some cold weather I hope. I do have trail cam pics but most all of them are night time shots. I did get a pic of the largest bobcat that I have ever seen...
