I stand about three feet from the house. I set targets at 20, 25, 30, and 40 yards.

Re: Hanging a deer

We hang them by the neck. After skinning, cut the breast bone, wash and wipe inside and out and place a piece of wood inside chest cavity to spread open for a couple days before cutting up the deer.

I use a Buck #124 knife. With that knife, you can rip right up through the breast bone.

Re: New Bolt keeper design ???

"Same screw?"

Not always. Older ones used a smaller screw. In that case, you need to drill the arrow hold down spring a little.

Re: Crank For Excalibur Phoenix

If the stock has five diagonal slashes on the side of the stock, it takes a C-2 crank. Without the slashes, it takes a crankaroo.

Re: Which way did it go?

I think the arrow would be to the right. When the right limb hit, it would kick the right side back, so the arrow should be to the right.

If the jolt made the arrow jump out of the rail, it could be anywhere.

Re: Lowest draw weight or length

You could have the Phoenix rail shortened one inch and turn it into a Vixen. 150 pound draw.
