Re: DIY Tick Spray

X2 on diluting the stuff from Tractor Supply. They call it “Livestock and Premise Spray”. It’s 10% Permethrin. Dilute it ten-to-one. A $12 quart bottle has lasted me several years. I just heard on the radio that Lymes Disease is found in all 50 states, and is now the fastest-growing vector-borne Dis...

Re: Good deal alert

That is a great deal. Kind of a sketchy website though, maybe?

Re: What broadhead are you using

Never heard of the Qad Exodus, but they look like a good, strong broad head design. Nice thing about the Slick Tricks is they’re 4-blade cutters. In recent years I converted from mechanical to fixed. Last year I tried an over-sized two-blade, single-bevel cut-on-contact head. It’s made by Centaur Ar...

Funny, somehow Anthony doesn’t look like Anthony without that 4-inch diameter cigar! :D

Re: BooFest Thank You

Anyone who hasn’t been to Boofest needs to do whatever it takes to go at least once! This year was my first time and I was blown away by how great this event is! I expected it to be nice, (obviously, otherwise I wouldn’t have gone), but I figured it’d be one of those things where after 4 hours or s...

What's up with Quebec?

So while driving through Ontario I notice that the road signs are in both English and French. Makes sense, since there's a sizable number of people in Canada who speak French. However, when I get to Quebec, the signs are in French but not also in English. What's up with that?

Re: Who would like to see Peter Balfour, Bill and Kathy at Boofest?

I appreciate the offer, but if I go Boofest would be only one of several places I'd be visiting, including Quebec City, Ft. Ticonderoga, and Dixon Muzzleloading Fair the following weekend.

Just meeting the Troubridges would make this event worth going to! It's got me seriously considering it. It's just such a long haul from Carolina though...

Re: years of manufacture for excal bows?

There should be others on this Forum more knowledgeable on this topic than I, but since no one else has replied, I think that before the Vixen/Exocet/Exomag line-up in the late-90's, there was just the Wolverine.

Re: guys whats the normal kill time or distance travelled after hits?

I've killed about forty deer with my Exocet over the years, using a variety of broadheads but primarily the Rocket Hammerhead 2-inch expandables. I'd say the average double-lung death-run is 50-70 yards. They can definitely go longer on heart shots and liver shots though, although often they won't i...

Re: Crossbows of the past post yours here

Dang Nog, you're either an incredibly lucky guy or one helluva a marksman! I doubt one person in a million could nail a charging wolverine between the eyes with a pistol! Or even hit it at all!

Pretty cool!

Re: Fixed 2 Blade, Anybody?

200 grain Centaur Battleaxe heads (2.25" cut). Fletch helical with Blazers, like previous post said, and they fly true to my field points out to 40 yards. Leave massive blood trails.

Re: How much cutting diameter makes a differnce?

I've killed about forty deer with my 175lb Exocet over the years, with a variety of fixed and mechanical heads. There is no perfect Broadhead, but based on my experience the larger the cutting diameter most definitely the shorter blood trail. And the newer crossbows are so powerful that you'll get a...
