New to the Forum and Excalibur

Post by BigOLayne » Thu Nov 08, 2018 2:06 pm

Just joined the forum after purchasing an Assassin. Previously used a compound xbow for target shooting but now really want to get into hunting; so I did some research and every time Excalibur was the best and that recurve was the way to go.
I live in MA so our laws don't yet allow for crossbow hunting unless disabled but the surrounding states do.

Welcome to the forum! I have a Strata and am quite pleased with it!
Can you hunt with your crossbow during firearm season? Its shotgun season here and I've got my Strata with me now.
It is better to be thought a fool than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt

If you think there's a great conspiracy, there isn't other than the one running in circles in your head

Yes I can hunt with a xbow in MA as well due to lower back injury and yes we can hunt with a *bow* during primitive gun and shot gun as well...
