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.

Re: Good deal on Badlands daypack?

I have that exact pack, and I like it. That's a great price too! What I really like is it has the straps and a pocket for the buttstock so I can carry my rifle or crossbow hands-free. This is critical for riding a bike down logging roads or walking through brush. My only criticism of it is that the ...

Re: Florence

I’m around Greensboro, NC and hearing the same forecast as billnconnie: 12-inches rain, 30 mph wind. Funny thing is, last month in the first three weeks of August we got 25-inches of rain! Granted, that was over three weeks, but I think 8.5” of it fell in just a few days. NCHunterKW might get it wor...
