Re: What kind of deflection numbers are there for BD400, 420,440 bows?

Splintered a limb on my Equinox and the replacement limbs were definitely faster. Shooting around 345 with 410 grain arrows. :eusa-dance: Higher the number the faster the limbs?

Re: Excalibur Summer Promotion Email -Canadain's Read Fine Print

Ya, it's a pretty crappy thing to do to us. Maybe I should check the fine print on the draw I just entered.

Acetone??? Takes off the labeling??? Hah might try that
A dish scrubber with acetone makes quick short work of painted graphics.

And acetone to take the arrow labels off so they don't "weld" into the target
This! Removing the arrow graphics made removal at least fifty percent easier for me. Followed by a little arrow lube at the front of the arrow ended the daily tug o war.

Re: Nuisance Deer I’ll Be doing my part this Fall

Blunts work great for nuisance animals. The wide cup Saunders is my go to for pesky bears that are interfering in my hunt or acting aggressively. I popped a belligerent beef bull in the forehead a few years back when when he started showing evil intentions upon me. I swear he went cross eyed when th...

Re: Elk antler question

I am not sure Hank, but we knowed the blood feeds up as they grow. I would assume some drys inside the antler It's not blood Mike. It goes about 1/8" into the antler. With the porous nature of antlers, the blood would have oxidized into a gross brown color. I have never seen this before and I've go...

Elk antler question

Hey all, I was given an old elk rack that was nailed to a barn for twenty some years. White and crusty they were. Anyhoo, the barn was coming down and they were gifted to me to use for antler carving. My question is, is it normal for the interior of elk antlers to be pink? I mean a salmon rose pink ...

Re: Micro 355 Stock Quill/150 gr Field point SPEED?

340 would work,just remember that once you get it sighted in whatever the speed ring says doesn’t mean that’s the actual speed! If you want the actual speed you will need to shoot through a chronograph Yes understood thank you, not going to worry about the speed just accuracy and consistency. :D Gi...

Re: Matrix string stretch?

I didn’t know they made them shorter. That kinda negates the simplicity of changing a string in the field because the new string CANNOT immediately be adjusted within specs. This would make the recurve technology and theory defunct. I guess its covered here for what its worth. I guess if I change a...

Re: New broadhead target. Arrows stuck.

Arrow gripper wouldn’t budge arrows. Wood block and a few taps with the hammer and they came out covered with melted plastic. Easy to scrape off. Might just use the foam block for sighting broadheads. (Btw, Boltcutters aren’t grouping like field points—maybe test multiple arrows to find the one (ju...

Re: Bolt keeper position

The retainer should be lined up with the arrow channel. Mine sits above the groove with about an eighth inch clearance. The arrow should stay no matter how much you try to shake it or swing the bow around.
