Just sayn hello.

Post by Twignstring » Fri Aug 24, 2018 2:43 pm

New member introduction.
My name is Chad.
I live in southern Maine.
Been shooting some sort of bow and arrow since I was about 5 years old.
Shot everything from top of the line Hoyts. To hand whittled Longbows homemade from Osage orange and other woods.
Have worked at one of the big retail outdoor stores in the archery department. Then went on to owning my own traditional archery shop years ago.
Just getting around to owning a crossbow after rupturing another disk in my neck. And no longer being able to draw and shoot regular bow with out numbness and pain down my arm.
Happened to walk in to a Cabelas one day. And seen all excalibur crossbows on clearance this past November. So I got my 380BD for a steal...
Been lurking on the forum for a while now learning.. Figure its time I contribute too.
That's my story.
Hope to enjoy the knowledge base here.
