Re: Wyvern creations

Dave is almost to honest to a fault. I have bought, or responsible for 6 different crossbow packages. Don't think I would go anywhere else.

Re: Lighted Nocks or Not?

Not trying to start an argument, but Nu-Fletch Ignitors are no way easier than Firenocks to turn off. Just drop them on their end and they are off. Little pricey, but worth it.

Re: Bear hunt with crossbow

Shot a small one near Jelicoe, Ont. with my 355. Shot from tree stand at about 25 yards. Went about 15 yards, then the death moan.

Arrow Retension Spring

I'm setting up a new M380, and in the process, put shrink tube on the arrow retension spring. The bow shoots very well so far at 20 yards. My question is that the spring only sets above the rail about 1/4 inch. It appears that it should be a bit higher, but with the spring steel, I'm afraid to bend ...

Re: New Member, New To Crossbows, Matrix Questions

I know Vermont is next to New Hampshire, and Wyverns Creations is in Lee, New Hampshire.
Might be worth a call.

Re: What's in your "kill kit".

...my "kill kit" (never heard it said this way)...is more of a function of whether it is morning or afternoon, whether I am staying on post for the entire day or not, how tired I am and or whether or not I feel I can remove some of the stuff...Anthony :) For years our camp have called it our "TAG" ...

Mad Max

I have been thinking about a m380, and the Mad Max has caught my eye for the simple reason that it won't be the same as a couple friends bows. My question right now is, I have read here that some of the bows have had to have their limbs replaced and I'm concerned that in time Excalibur won't have th...

Decocking Problem

I have owned my M355 for over a year now and have been virtually problem free until now. Maybe someone can help me out. Lately, when Im decocking my bow, my claws from my trigger tech drop down as if it was cocked, which in turn makes it a pain to cock the bow next time. I have sparingly kept it lub...

It's been awhile since I have been on the Ausable, and it was anything but peaceful and quite. Hope things are better now.

Flight Shooting

Maybe this has been discussed before, and if it has, I missed it. A friend and I were shooting today with an M355 and an M380, both shooting about 420 gr. arrows. We started taking about far these crossbows would shoot. Anybody done this? How long of a field would we need if we were to try it?

Re: finding a critter in your blind

Had a red squirrel gnaw throught my box blind and set up house. Once I closed the door, he couldn't seem to find his opening to get out. Pretty exciting for about an hour. Another old blind I use once in a while, has mice in all the time, but they leave me alone. And lastly, had to put hardware wire...
