Re: Big trail cam visitor

My closest shot to date on a bear was 8 yards. Double lung heart shot. The only reason I backed away after the shot was the wind blowing the arterial spray all over me. Oh, I guess I should mention she was 10 feet up a tree. She was dead when she hit the ground. :D Your bear is at least 350-400 lbs....

18/1 target repair?

Hi all,
My 18/1 is pretty shot up. I was wondering if anyone knows of a product I could inject into it to prolong the life. At this moment I just dont have the cash for a new target. :( Thanks.

Re: Target stuffing materials

The Atlantic Provinces have a company called Parts for Trucks which sells bundles of compressed rags for $18.75. They are 18" by 16" by 6 inches thick. They weigh 25 pounds and are very tightly packed in heavy plastic, so no stuffing required. My matrix 380 shooting 150 grain field points from 20 m...

Re: Target stuffing materials

I have experimented with many materials in my bag and always go back to packed rags. I love the two finger removal and the fact that my blazers have never touched the bag. It is simply the easiest and cheapest solution. JMHO.

Re: How Far Deer Travel After The Shot

Good read! The biggest point I saw is Muzzy's bad all the rest good. :lol: Seriously, it confirms what I believed all along. A proficient hunter hitting the proper impact zone will not have far to go for recovery. Thanks for all your info and effort. :D

Re: Preventing Meat From Spoiling

I dont really have that problem as most of my game is shot within 400 yards of my house. I am lucky in that I am surrounded by green belts and farm land. As an added bonus, last year a crap load of ringnecked pheasants were released and the mild winter helped the population to explode. I have seen 1...

Re: Opinions please

Exellent replies guys! Matt, your last paragraph was particularly true as I have had rifle shooters and compounders shoot better than me the first time they shot a crossbow. Good shooting form translates across the board from rifles to crossbows. Like you Matt, I sight my bow in the way I hunt, not ...

Re: Cracked limb

I just just got my new limbs last friday for the same problem. The limb splintered last hunting season and I continued to fill my tags with it. Getting replacement limbs took a little less than a month.( crappy Canada Post) No questions asked except for return address. You're in good hands! :D Hank ...

Re: The beast got new wings!

Did you have to send your old limbs back to them :?: Glad your back in the saddle buddy!! :D Yup, I sent them the limbs. It's sure nice to get confirmation like this that says I made the right decision to buy Excal. That and the enormous amount of friends I've made over the last five years on this ...

The beast got new wings!

If anyone recalls, last hunting season I splintered a limb and kept hunting and shooting with it till spring. A month ago I decided to call Dawn and get some new limbs. I found her to be very funny, engaging, and personable. No questions were asked about dryfires or anything other than my return add...
