Re: Morning or afternoon hunts

I like morning hunts because you don't have to track in the dark. I like afternoon hunts because I think it's too easy to bump deer in the morning darkness going in, lessening the chance of a shot opportunity. In the end, my tendency is to hunt afternoons but recently I've hunting mornings and I li...

Re: scope's

It’s not crossbow specific, but I’ve been using Leupold VXR Patrols and Leupold Mark AR Mod-1s in 1.25-4x for the last 5 years. They are bright, extremely lightweight and have usable illumination. The reticle subtensions in the Special Purpose Reticle aren’t perfect for crossbow use, but they are c...

Re: Ramcat Hydroshock-X

If they fit in the Dr. Stirrup quiver, it's excellent. If not, Alpine Archery had a Soft Lok Quiver that grips the arrow in 2 spots mid shaft and the hood is filled with foam that you press the broadhead into. It's very quiet and I know it would work....something to think about. :eusa-think: Paul I...

Re: My swhacker experience

Let me say that my experience ended while using vertical bow, a Hoyt at 28" draw set to 68 pounds at 12 yards. Dead deer, no blood for about 35 yards, then tons of blood. Luckily I seen the path the deer took, so no biggie, and it was about 8:45 AM, so no rush either. Arrow did a great job, just no...

From reading other sources also it seems to be normal not to get passthrough but every one still finds their deer and keeps loyally using them. Ohh well what do l know.
Point me to these other sources please. They have worked flawlessly for me. I like to see both sides of the coin.

Buck was close again almost same spot but maybe 10 yards out. Perfect close lung and heart. I watched him runnoff to my amazement w...
