Re: Happy father's day

Anyone want to share a Brine recipe? I have a Big Green Egg, but I have never brined venison. i have only brined pork & poultry and i keep things simple; i like meat to taste like meat and it's the salt & water that puts moisture into lean meats & that's what i'm going for. so: 1 quart cold water 1...

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

Doesn't really bother me much. We can't get 80% of the stuff available in America. There will be times Canadians get better deals or sales that Americans, no big deal really. For what it's worth, I didn't get the email. i don't seem to be getting any promotional emails anymore. think i'll check my ...

Re: Happy father's day

Yes sir, everybody enjoy your kids and families. I got up early to put rib tips on the smoker, then bacon wrapped, stuffed jalapeno poppers on after. Got all the running around done yesterday, so today is "take it easy" day. A few refreshments, and a nap. Don't get much better! Forgot that i put th...

Wow not many people like that anymore. Guardian Angel?

Re: Tact zone seems quite good! I’m impressed!

i have only used the illumination feature on my twilight dlx 1 time while hunting and it was bright enough to be a distraction. with that as my only questionable light shooting experience, i think that if it's twilight i want my illumination pretty low and if it's not that dark, i will not use the i...

Re: Excalibur Twilight DLX Scope Question

Don't know what to tell you adam. there are times when i adjust my dlx (or the vortex on my .06) and the clicks feel a little odd but i turn the knobs until until the poi is where i want it and then i don't think about it any more. i guess if your scope requires constant adjusting as you shoot it th...

Re: Boltcutter B.A.T vs. regular Boltcutter broadheads

Being a newbie with my first Excalibur I have only fired my field points about 20 times. I purchased the B.A.T. Broadheads. They were the same price at Cabela’s.ca. Next time maybe I’ll just get the regular Boltcutters. Oh so much to learn for a very soon to be 62 year old man! in my limited experi...

Re: Sapphire 325 (forward riser)

so tell me, doctor, is your purchase of a powerful weapon (for a short framed person) some sort of reverse psychological compensation for some freakishly large physical endowment?
