Sadly my old smoker is headed to the recycler as the rusty pin holes have gotten too bad.
On a happier note, my new Green Mountain Grill DB shows up tomorrow :)

Re: California turkey down w/ Micro

....What kinda lizard is that? Looks like a small confused gator. Hank Funny you should say that... They are alligator lizards. Super cool little bug eaters that move through the grass like an alligator swimming in water. The long tails mean these guys have had few encounters with the local bird po...

California turkey down w/ Micro

Got to sit in the blind this morning but was not expecting much after a very disappointing opening weekend. Lots of calls at first light then they all ran off to water and not in front of me. Was the first time hunting with a few new buddies and appreciated them letting me take the first shot :) htt...

Re: Lets See Your Micros!

Cali74.....How do you attach the rope to your crossbow? 3/8" marine rope inside 3/8" fuel line. First get an idea of how long of a loop you need or want. Not sure what I went with but just made sure my hunting boot would fit. Then tide one knot as you see in the picture on one side, fed the rope th...

My personal best turkey taken with my Micro

Fall turkey hunting is always a surprise but this year more than ever. After sitting in the blind 4 times with no birds even remotely coming close, on Monday I finally lucked out. At the end of a 4 hour sit I was packing up when a group of nice toms started traveling through the area and within rang...

Re: Excalibur Micro takes its first turkey...

Grouse, we usually use the whole bird and yes, a Jake is much more tender than an older Tom. I'm not picky but always try for the largest bird when possible. I like to cook the breast and leg/rump separately for different recipes. The leg/rump meat gets the brine treatment as well and seems to softe...

Re: Excalibur Micro takes its first turkey...

Thanks everybody. I know I bought this xbow for my wife but it is sooo much fun to shoot. I find myself giggling like a little kid every time I shoot it. Even find myself referring to it as my xbow ha ha. In all honesty I purchased the bow with the air brakes as well as the TT trigger already instal...

Excalibur Micro takes its first turkey...

I love turkey season and spend a lot of time getting ready for the opener each year both fall and spring seasons. This year I purchased a Micro to get my wife in the blind and of course had to test it out before getting her set up for a hunt. I have never killed turkeys with anything other than a ve...
