Re: Wasp expandable broadheads

If I were to move back to expandables, I think I’d try the 150-grain Shwacker.
I like the way they’ve designed the blades opening on those.

Expandables can be problematic in quartering-away shots, or if they glance off a rib wrong. The Shwacker looks like it might overcome those issues.

Re: Wasp expandable broadheads

They're okay. I liked the Hammerhead expandables better, back when I used expandables.

Re: "Splash" "Get The Net"!!! Nov. 3 Buck Story

Funny, I'm hunting SW Ohio right now too. I nailed a four-pointer with my Exocet yesterday; he ran 75 yards, tumbled down an embankment, and splashed into the creek! How's the Rut been in your neck of the woods? It's been subdued here this year; almost like the bucks just aren't that into the does t...

Re: Wraps

I’ve bought reflective tape from the auto parts store before, and put a 1/2”-wide strip behind the fletching. Makes arrow easy to find in the dark. It’s cheap, super-thin, and the weight is negligible.

Re: Bowtech Messed Up

So educate me: why would anyone who has an Excalibur recurve bow want a compound bow?

I totally understand the advantages of compound bows in vertical archery, but crossbows?

Re: Ruuut ro ravin

I got good news for your buddy! According to the Manufacturer, the Ravin's a rifle, not a crossbow! :o

Those fiberglass thingy's on the sides are just for looks! All he needs to do is rack the slide, load another round, and he's good to go! :D

Re: Maximum Bolt/Broadhead weight for Matrix 350LE?

Unless you’re planning on flinging steel rebar, you really can’t get too heavy. If memory serves me, (which admittedly, it frequently doesn’t these days), I think the elephant hunters typically used a 1,000-grain fiberglass arrow. I’ve moved up from 450-grain arrows to 600-grains. Sure, in my old 17...

Re: Unhappy Excalibur Owner

The micro bows are awsome mines been trouble free but you are bending the sh....t out of a tiny little limb this is not good. Yep, everyone wants short limbs; the problem in engineering terms is that the strain on the limb is inversely related to the square of the limb length! What that means in pl...

Re: I HATE ticks!!!!!!!!!!!

You’re right about the post-hurricane mosquitoes; they’re really bad right now. This is the most humid “Fall” I can ever recall in North Carolina. Some years it stays hot into Octobed, but at least the humidity drops and it’s a much more tolerable dry heat. I guess when 17 inches of rain drops on th...

Re: I HATE ticks!!!!!!!!!!!

You’re pretty gung-ho to be hunting in this Carolina heat, Kieth. Heck, it’s so hot I can barely stand to get out and mow the grass! It’s been darn humid too.

I wouldn’t even consider it till we get a strong cold front blow through - and none of those are in the ten-day forecast.

Re: Biggest Moose ever with my Micro 335

Good golly, that’s HUGE! I can’t even wrap my mind around tackling something that size.
Here in the South, anything bigger than a dog is Big Game.
