Re: Are they ready?

Thats why I got an Excalibur. After seeing every mishap that could happen to a crossbow, didn't take me long to figure it out. In all my ten years there, I never had a call about a problem , let alone to send a crossbow back for warranty work. I can' t say that about any other one out there.

Re: Alaska Brown Bear Cam

Found that site last year. I enjoy watching the bears put on their show. I was watching a couple of days a go and had a wolf out on the falls fishing for salmon and caught a few. Never seen that before.

Re: Are they ready?

I agree with janesy. When I worked at Bass Pro, I found most people were pretty accurate , even first time shooters. Most needed more time about shooting safely. I don't know if your talking about first time hunters or just new to crossbows. If first time hunters, they need to try to shoot a few tim...

Re: Nock Removal

I like Lumenoks. I asked the same question awhile back when switching some factory arrows to Lumenoks. What I setteled on was to screw a field point to the nock and dip the field point in boiling water from the microwave. When the field point heated up , I just used a pair of pliers to gently turn a...

Getting the itch

It's a dang shame that deer season is still a full 3 months away. I'm already getting the itch to go hunting. I can only dream and practice so much! My wife can tell you that I believe in only two seasons " Hunting season and waiting for hunting season." I've gone over my camo, cleaned my guns and b...

Re: Lighted nocks

I use Lumenoks myself. Don't think you could go wrong on most brands but definitely worth using. I feel naked if I'm not using a lighted nock.

will it fit??

Going to be getting a Marlin 336 for my grandson soon and hoping to pair it with a Vortex 3-9x50 Crossfire 2 and a DNZ mount with high rings.Don't know if it will fit yet. Has anybody tried this or should I drop down to a 40 mm? I like the v brite reticle so if all else fails, I could put the 50mm a...

Re: Anyone use Ozonics??

I use a scent crusher tote which I believe helps. I still use non scented laundry soap and use fresh earth cover scent. I mainly use the scent crusher after I hunt when I'm away on trips to kind of recharge my camo so to speak. Ozone still leaves an odor that even I can smell which disappears after ...

Re: Hunting show pet peeves!!

I agree. I kind hate the shows that seem to scream "Look at me and see what I did". I like to learn more info from them than the bragging. What I have always hated is when I get back home from hunting and people would ask "What did you kill?" I've said many times here on this forum , "Theres more to...

Hydro dipping

I bought a new Mossberg 930 for turkey hunting. I got it at a good price but I'm thinking about buying a pistol grip butt stock for it.If I go that route , I will want to camo it to match the rest of the gun. I want something more permanent than tape and was thinking about hydro dipping it myself. L...

Re: Who wants to camp out at this place?

To me , I would say coyote. Black tipped tail seems too bushy for a couger.
