Re: Mixing limbs

If I were you I would ask them at excal. I did as I had 2 spare limbs. I didn't keep the email so I don't want to give incorrect info they didn't really recommend it but did mention as was said about being within so many numbers or the same lot I believe you could try them and see how they worked .

Re: mechanical broad heads

I have no idea why. Every animal I have shot from above has had a good blood trail starting within yards of the shot. I look hard for blood. The moose ran along a dry logging road and after an exhausting search we found one small drop of blood on rock and from that we began to find more until we cou...

Re: mechanical broad heads

I actually shot a moose quartering away took out lung and part of the heart. From the ground and the moose ran 65 yards down a logging road before first visible blood !! I have shot them with nap thunderheads and rages and every horizontal shot has had a long lead time before first blood. Then easy ...

Re: mechanical broad heads

I have had several animals that I shot from ground level or horizontal since I started hunting with a crossbow and most of them have had little to no blood until after 20 to 30 yards . I have never had this with an animal hit from an elivated positiond and usually have blood in a few yards . I shoul...

Re: BC Proposal to BAN Scopes on Crossbows

"however all states allow the disabled to use crossbows throughout their hunting seasons."


This a bit misleading what does throughout their hunting seasons mean. Montana doesn't allow the use of a crossbow during archery season even if you are disabled !

Re: New Xbows, BHs, scopes, etc

I worked with a guy and we called him the ultimate consumer ! He tried every fad there was and would get all the best gear. Then 6 months to a year later he was on to something else and sold his stuff at a good price. I tried to talk him into hunting figuring I would be in line for some top gear in ...

Re: mechanical broad heads

I always shot the nap thunderheads for years. They were very accurate but I didn't like the small blood trails. Since I have been shooting these rages it looks like a slasher movie even on horizontal shots where it took many yards before getting good blood with these after about 10-20 yards blood li...

Re: mechanical broad heads

I got some of the rages a couple years ago and everything I have shot with them has had a large entry and exit hole. If you are getting a small entry with a mech I'd switch.
