Re: Ramcat crossbow broadheads

I haven't tied a ramcat but I did try a rage. I got some 125 for a good deal. I keep hearing bad things about rage but the only deer I have shot with one so far a nice 8 point in Michigan went about 60 yards and I have never see such a blood trail Plus it started about 15 yards past where I shot him...

Re: Red dot scope

I put my fastfire ff3 on my micro a couple seasons ago and shot it a 20 yards. I liked that it made the already compact bow lighter and more compact. Plus it is really good for getting a quick site picture and picking up game with both eyes open. At the time I was having major issues getting the 335...

Re: Gen 2 Micro down

I actually got out my 20 year old exomag to sight in with the 335 when the new limbs came. I was expecting the micro to still suck and was going to just hunt with the old bow again as it has killed many animals and really never given me any problems until a limb split about 4 years ago. I was happil...

Re: Gen 2 Micro down

The ones I have got come with longer spacers for the limb straps and a little longer screws . This ! I am not sure why but I have chased accuracy with this bow for about 4 years. When I got the new limbs with the different spacers it started to shoot as I expect an excal to shoot. I don't know if w...

Re: Wisconsin 2019 crossbow change in season.

Most archery shops are finding that crossbow buyers are one and done. Where as compound shooters need more help with form and tuning etc etc. In the beginning they felt crossbows would increase their business but they are finding the opposite to be true.

Re: Gen 2 Micro down

Well I only have one and it also eventually got a cracked limb. I ordered a new set and when they sent it it came with several other pieces that made the attachment different than the original. Bow seems to shoot better now. I wish they had sent out this little kit before the limb cracked lol As far...

Re: Why the black crossbows

The truth is the composite gun stocks were pushed on the market when good walnut was getting hared to find in the 70's , 80's , they are great in poor weather, fantastic for target guns , but very poor at giving me any nostalgic feelings of ownership like checkered walnut can. I had a remington mdl...

Re: Why the black crossbows

Like some commercials say here is your new rifle. My guess rifle guys like black ones to feel like they are still rifle hunters LOL :evil:
Although the blind use does make sense.

Re: Come Hunt Texas!

Cool offer. I'm thinking that would be an awesome hunt ! I hunted a buddies lease near Cisco Tx for a couple years and he offered me a spot but I declined because of how far the travel is. I'm still kicking myself for not taking that lease offer!

Re: I missed!

Ha Ha sorry if I jumped on but I guess you could say I'm a little po'd when it comes to equipment this last year or so. I hung up my old bowtech compound and my old excal exomag for a new micro and a new apa mamba so far almost wishing I could go back. Got a bunch of hunts in the works this year and...
