Those silly turkeys have been strutting all winter up here.
Cats is actin' like dogs and dogs is actin' like cats!
I have been seeing gobblers in full strut all during deer season this year. I even had a group of hens come by one morning with a hen in full strut.

I just got an email from Dawn saying the new limbs are thicker, and cracking issues should be a thing of the past. Excalibur saves the day again!
I will believe that only when no more splintered limbs are reported. Heard about the fixed limbs to many times. :roll:

If the numbers match or within 5 you can use them for a backup pair of limbs. Good luck!
I think you meant to say .5 as in 100.5. Correct?

Re: mechanical broad heads

I almost always shoot my deer from a tree stand and usually get a good blood trail but not always. The next to last deer I shot at 35 yards with a DL shot took off and ran almost 90 yards up the side of a steep ridge and fell over. I could see a heavy blood trail starting where I shot the deer going...

Re: O/T Shotgun Turkey Hunters

I have been shooting a Mossberg 835 using the factory choke and 3.5s for many years now but mine does not seem to care if I shoot 4s, 5s or 6s through it. It is deadly with all of them. But my Excalibur is just as deadly only at shorter ranges. :)

Re: Axe 340

Dang it! My bow was supposed to be here today! It’s now lost! Great! Exactly why I stopped shipping USPS! They are overpriced and slow with problems! Exactly the opposite around here. I will take USPS over UPS all day long. I had to drive over 100 miles the other day to retrieve my new Ravin crossb...

Explain how the entry hole is always smaller please?
This is an entry hole from a 2.3" hypodermic:

The OP said a gut hit and it went down in 70 yards. I would say that mechanical definitely did its job correctly.

Re: Trying something new this spring

I have killed a lot of birds and mostly with a scope installed. I wounded a couple shooting just the beads early on and went to the scope and ever bird since out to 65 yards had died in its tracks. I use a Simmons Pro Diamond scope.

String stars are about as useful as a screen door on a submarine! :)

Sounds to me like they might go well with air brakes. :lol:

Re: refinish laminate stock?

Proper" tung oil is just oil. Tru-Oil, and many products that are labeled as tung oil without the word "pure," are polymerized oil. Tru-Oil hardens more than true tung oil and wears through more slowly. It is also able to be polished up to a gloss surface.
