Re: Solo hunting solution

If you Canadians had deer like we’ve got here in the South, loading them in the truck wouldn’t be an issue: just grab ‘em by the scruff of the neck, and toss ‘em up into the bed! :)

Re: wooden wolverine stocks

Danny Miller had one at BooFest. It had cedar branches spray-painted on it in gray for camouflage. I think he said it came that way from Excalibur.

Check out the goats foot lever and the gaffe lever. Both were used to help cock medieval style crossbows. The gaffe lever is a bit easier to build than the goats foot lever.

Shaffern has a great suggestion!

Re: Super heavy arrow with expandable heads?

You’re certainly on the right track, IMO, to use the heavier insert/broadhead. However it’s not realistic to expect any arrow/broadhead combo to achieve a pass through on a leg bone! I dont think the most powerful Excalibur shooting a single-bevel fixed blade could achieve a pass through on a leg bo...

Canada is the “canary in the coal mine” for those of us living in the States.

Re: ATA

I thought the ATA was closed to the general public? Only archery industry insider allowed?

Re: measurements of short and compact xbows

It’s not an Excalibur, but the Killer Insinct Swat 408 is only 29” long.

I have no idea if it’s a quality bow or not, but is does sport a novel design where it buries the string into the stock, giving it a longer effective draw length.

Re: 2019 Excaliburs

Hmmm, with that takedown Assassin Excalibur May entice me to retire my Exocet this year!

My biggest complaint about my crossbow is that it’s an ungainly beast to lug around.

That advertised 420fps should yield an honest 400 with hunting weight arrows. That’d be a big upgrade for me!

Re: Rangefinder or No Rangefinder

Walmart often has them on sale at the end of hunting season. I picked up a Simmons last year marked down to $25! Often see them marked down to $50. It's by no means the quality glass that a Leica is, but it gets the job done for archery. I hunted my first crossbow-hunting year without one. Like anot...

Re: Retractable Cocking Rope

My brother has them on his Wicked Ridge crossbow (made by TenPoint). They're convenient, but the problem with them is the retracting spring doesn't pull them back tight enough. Consequently, the plastic handles rattle against the stock when you walk with it = noisy.

Re: Rendering Bear Fat

Do bear cracklings taste as good as pork cracklings? I’ve rendered pork lard a couple times, and those hot pork cracklings are to die for! :)
