Re: Pa. Gun Deer Season my health has me down. UPDATED

Thanks for your prayers. Update-----I got the call from the doctor who did the biopsy on the mass on right lung. It is cancer, and he is now setting up a pet scan and then meet with a cancer doctor. I never smoked. I forgot to ask what could have caused it, but will ask the cancer doctor. Steve Kic...

Re: Sound Deading System - String Stars ( beef )

Unfortunately I am in to full hunting mode for the next two weeks ( shorter if the right shooter comes into range). I am set up with them in place on the original string that came on my Micro 360TD Pro. Will have to compare later with and without Stars to get sense of the difference. For now will br...

Sound Deading System - String Stars ( beef )

The one part of the complete system which to me appears to be an issue when it comes to having a backup string ready to go is being able to purchase string stars by themselves. Can only find complete Sound Deading System for sale any where. To me having to transfer them from your old string to a new...

Will your house insurance pay for a replacement? If you purchased the bow on a charge card, does the card have any insurance that would replace the bow?
A good place to start for sure . :thumbup:

Re: To pee or not to pee

I have always just let it fly right from my stand. Hasn't deterred deer from walking right under it. Yep, and playing the wind is crucial! :lol: :lol: I would agree with that for sure Word of caution Number 2 should never ever :thumbdown: be considered while still in the stand. Not only could it be...

Let alone trying to line up a small opening of a water bottle, even a gatorade bottle.
Use of the words " small opening ""even a gatorade bottle"
Some may interpret as :lol: bit of a brag.

Re: My buddy called me w scope trouble.

When your buddy adjusts elevation up or down does the point of impact change. I would try one other thing before calling Excalibur. Adjust the elevation slowly counting each tick all the way down from where it maxed out. Do not force. While doing so look into the scope at a fixed spot and see if the...

Re: My buddy called me w scope trouble.

Question at what distance is your buddy shooting when they are adjusting the elevation. If it is any distance other than 20 yds. Then they should start over and check their zero sight in at 20 yd. Then move the target out to 50 yds and use their speed ring to adjust the elevation up or down only. Th...

Re: Equinox Limb ?Problem? Or not?

I used BONDIC on my Equinox to seal a small splinter rather then breaking it off. Been two years now hundreds of shots and still looking good. I guess it all depends on what the splinter looks like and it's location. (Inside or outside surface of limb.) Use of the Bondic help to maintain the surface...

Re: Ex- Shox Question on Micro 360TD

If you don't put them on, then you won't have to look for them when they fall off :thumbup: At that time Just kidding, but not really. You'll be perfectly fine without them, shoot away! Thanks. You may be kidding but I owned a Horton Fury which pretty much was what I believe put the Original Horton...
