Re: finally got out!

Glad to see you got out in spite of the high temps. It was 86 degrees on opening day(Oct1) where I hunt in southern Michigan. Almost glad I didn't see anything to shoot due to the high temps. Haven't been able to get back out since.

Re: 20" bolts from a grizzly?

My nephew has shot 20" Bolts(Easton 2219 aluminum) arrows from his Grizzly. Used his 18" bolts that came with the Grizzly to sight in his bow. Told him to try my 20" arrows to see if there was any difference. Shot out to 50 yards with no difference. Lucky he tried my arrows because he forgot his arr...

Re: New string came untwisted

First off I want to thank everyone for their help. Boo,I read your web page on strings.. Vixenmaster I'm not sure what a Flemish String is(looks like). All I know is when I bought the Excalibur Axiom bow at (Cabelas) I bought a bow string in a bubble pack that was made by Excalibur. The packaging di...

Re: New string came untwisted

When I twist the string counter clockwise,does it matter which end of the string I twist since both ends before the serving are completely untwisted...example:holding the string in front of me left hand holding 1 end of the loop,right hand holding the other loop should I twist left end of loop count...

Shot a deer with a 20" DCA(Deer Crossing Arrow)carbon with a 150grn BoltCutter at approx 17 yards and hit the deer slightly high...

New string came untwisted

I bought a new string some time ago for my Axiom. When I got ready to change the old string,I discovered the new string was totally untwisted in the package(nothing but numerous strands from both loop ends to serving). Should I use the old string as a close measurement and twist 1 end of the new str...

Re: THE MORE THINGS CHANGE THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME-US

My prediction regarding the future of our country is one of negative beliefs. When President Trumps tenure ends(whether he gets re-elected or not),it will be full speed ahead by the Democrats along with the RINO's in Congress/Senate to turn our country into a socialist country. Open borders,global s...

Re: Evidence does not support call for gun bans in Canada

History has taught us that in order for a country to control its' populace,the populace has to be disarmed. Once disarmed,the dictator(s) in charge will then use food as a means to control the populace. If this fails,they will resort to using force against an unarmed populace. There are untold milli...

Re: Review: Case Knives Russlock and Cheetah

I used to have a Case knife growing up as a kid. The only problem with knives back then,they weren't lock back blades. I don't know how many times I cut my fingers when the knife closed up while cleaning and skinning game. Still enjoyed carrying one though.

Re: Hunting naked?

I use 1 to mark distances that I will be shooting. Where I hunt(private property),I never shoot further than 20 yards max. I place a pumpkin at the 20 yard mark a pour some vanilla extract on it and sit and wait. The deer pretty much cross this location everyday(evening) at almost the same time,give...

Re: Considering switching to fixed blade from mechanical

I use the Excalibur 150grn Boltcutter fixed blade. Always had complete pass throughs as long as I was using an aluminum arrow. The last deer I shot,I used a carbon arrow(Deer Crossing Arrow) with the Boltcutter. Shot the deer broadside at approx. 18 yards from a ground blind. Hit the deer a little h...
