Anthony you only own one? :shock: Think of all the fun you're missing out on.

I have never had 3 crossbows at the same time during hunting season. Usually, I start the summer with 2 or 3 and by the season have decided on just 1 favorite and sell the others. This year have a BD400 to keep my Mission MXB400 company at least for a while. The Excalibur is for sale but I don't really care to sell it because I am starting to feel like a backup in a nice idea and it is a great, accurate tool. I guess if the season starts and I still have the Bulldog, I may take it out in the woods for fun a few times but doubt if it gets much play time. Like my rifles, they are all ready to go but I have a favorite and it stays in my truck all season parked safely in the garage when not in the woods.

I just like to give them good homes. :lol:

I have the Sapphire for one of my boys, it's the perfect size for him. Since my daughter married and moved out, I picked up a Grizzly for her to use on her husband's family land and practice with at her house. I had the Matrix 380 and was perfectly happy, then picked up Jelly Belly because, well, sometimes I might want to use a blackout model. I was all content until I saw the Bulldog stock, so I had to get a BD400 to "try it out" since there were none locally for me to hold. The intention was to eliminate one from the fleet, but it has been months now and I still can't decide if it should be the Grizzly or a M380 or the BD400. The daughter could be given a M380 now that I have an extra C2 crank to go with it (the BD400 just got a Charger EXT).

In reality, I only need two bows at the most. If I'm lucky, I'll get a chance at a single buck each year on my property and last year's came during bang stick season. There are only two does that bed near my pond, and they are what draw the bucks and earn the "no shoot" award.

They are all nice bows, and are bought and paid for.

I have four Excals, two Equinox, a Vortex and a Phoenix. I hunt with the Equinox's. I only shoot the other two once in a while.

I hunt at least four days a week during archery season.

I have 3 bulldog micros. Two I carry hunting depending on what I feel like. The third I built as a replica to the two hunting versions only with a fair bit less draw weight. That allows me to shoot all year round in my basement or for extended shooting sessions without feeling the effect of the high draw weight.
Micro-Hybrid-bulldog "PitBull370"
MOBU Micro BD345 "Greener"
Xtra Micro BD310 "Small-Fry"
Micro Axe MOBU.

Every little sound in the bush sounds like footsteps... Until you hear footsteps!
