O.K. I'm into it again this year. I have always claimed to be practical when it comes to my hunting, but sometimes things just get carried away. When it became legal for me, I switched from compound to crossbow here in MI. Many dollars spent on that switch. Last week I dropped the damned thing and cracked a limb, who knew they were so fragile? There are scrapes and rubs all around me out there in my friends woods, who I generously reimburse for hunting priveliges. Today it's time for a new weapon, because I don't have time for sending out to repair the darned thing. I probably won't even shoot a buck now the way things are going. Should just stick to shooting at the little orange targets, I guess. Looks like another 2-3k deer season, and I didn't even head to the U.P. casinos for rifle yet.hmm make that 5-6k. Just venting.

Good advice, Musketman! Unfortunately that's also a big part of deer season here in the water wonderland, so I probably won't be saving any money there. thanks anyway Bill

You can drop an Excalibur Crossbow out of your treestand and not hurt it!

And in the event that you do, the lifetime warranty will cover anything at no cost to you. In addition, the US warranty service provider located in Ohio will do a one week or less turnaround on the repair.

I just found out that this one, a Barnett is waranteed also. They are sending me an entire riser unit, the whole front end at their cost. Problem is it takes a week to get here. I went out and bought a spare this morning. Bill

My 9 yr old is going to be with me for MN deer opener tomorrow and I'm so excited I could bust!


We'll be using a shotgun though.

Sadly, in CT, the buck population is constantly decreasing on our farm, crop-damage is just too good to be true, 3 eight pointers, a ten and a seven so far this year, all before November 1st. Still got a lot more time to keep hunting... Poor deer....

Jr. Why not take a doe or two? That's required on the land that I hunt. Believe me they taste just as good! Nice pic. Bill

We will normally shoot the does later in the year, we want to ensure that they still don't have any fawns with them and we want to keep them around to attract the bucks, where there is a doe, there is going to be a buck. So that's why we normally wait until after the rut. But I do agree, they do taste very good, so do the 2 1/2 - 3 year old bucks.
