My first crossbow was an Excalibur Micro 355 which I needed up selling after deciding which worked better for...

Re: Suggestion for a feeder

Google “PVC deer feeder” A 4” pipe and a couple fittings and you ratchet strap it to a tree. The bears will feed from it but they can’t break it. I had a 400 pounder trying to ruin mine...he managed to push and pull it a few inches but could not break into it try as he might. If you want to PM me y...

Re: Canadian Gun Ban

Trudeau is a blubbering idiot. Shockey says he would die for him? Wow! Maybe he meant he would kill him... I understand what he meant by that. BUT... In this case Justin is NOT my PM. I would not do anything for him let alone die for him. I understand as well (patriotism. Etc.) I pray that you wond...

Re: Canadian Gun Ban

This should be no surprise. This was already accepted by voters at the ballot box. We here south of your border have experienced this many times with our past presidents. Now that we have elected President Trump and hopefully will re-elect him for another 4 years our country is experiencing a new f...

Re: Canadian Gun Ban

Add a BOLT ACTION shotgun (added today due to "scary looks"), the Single Shot Ruger # 1, and numerous British Double Rifles to the list of those Prohibited.

Re: Hunting show pet peeves!!

My pet peeve is the term “ Harvested” I.e. “ I harvested this buck”. Ok, if you are hunting on a deer farm , and you planted it, feed it, watered it, nurtured it, then yes you harvested it. If you hunted it... not so much. You harvest a crop! True...no problem with legally, killing a game animal. “...
