Re: Equinox first Excalibur?

I have two Equinox's that I hunt with. I also have a Vortex and a Phoenix (same width) that I just use for practice. I like the wide ones and am not going to change. When I first wanted to get an Excalibur, I handled my nephew's Matrix 380 and a friend's Equinox. I liked the feel of the Equinox bett...

Re: New Xbows, BHs, scopes, etc

My hunting bow is a Equinox with a Leupold 1.5-5x20 and my back-up bow is the exact same thing. I alternate which one I take hunting.

Just in case, I also have a Vortex and a Phoenix, both with Leupold 1-4x20 shotgun scopes. I might be addicted to long limbs.

Re: Blind heater

I use a Mr. Buddy heater. I have also used a metal five gallon bucket. Cut about five 3/4 inch holes around the bottom edge for air supply. Put all the holes in one area, not all the way around, so the wind doesn't blow out the candles. Light a couple short candles in the bottom of the bucket. Put a...

Re: Stock

Why not just get a stock from an Equinox, Vortex or Ibex?

Smallest deer

Last night I had a nice sized doe under me that I normally would have shot had I not seen the fawn that was with it earlier. The fawn was the smallest deer that I have ever seen this time of year. It is only half the size of the other deer from this year. It still had it's red summer coat and all of...

Re: long limber

The long limb ones feel right to me too. I have two Equinox, a Vortex, and a Phoenix.

Before I got an Excalibur, I handled my nephew's Matrix 380 and a friend's Equinox. I just liked the feel of the Equinox better.

I have no intention of changing at all.

Re: Leupold optics

Be careful on E-bay. There are a lot of fake Leupolds on e-bay. I even saw a fake 3.5-10 at a gun show last week. It had VX3 on the box, but VXIII on the scope. Turrets were 1 click = 1 minute. Leupolds are 1/4 minute clicks. Five numbers and letters in the serial number. Leupold uses six numbers an...
