    Some of us took time off work and traveled to our state capitol building (sat through long hours of hearings) to defend crossbow hunting. Some of us wrote letters, sent emails and made phone calls...

    Some choose to not get involved in the politics of crossbow hunting which is sad. Not just for them but for everyone else around them. If you want to crossbow hunt, you must get involved. That or...

    Yeah, but you can't blame that on weed or even alcohol, it's those freakin' cell phones.

    People drive (they're sorta driving) down the road searching for the W key weaving all over the place.

    I've got one arrow that has taken 7 deer. I pull it out of the ground and clean it off when I get home. I run the blades through the sharpener and back in the quiver the arrow goes. The only time...

    djb2, I just ordered the same reflective wraps that you use from eBay ($3.50 for 24 including the shipping). I'm going to use these along with my Lumenoks for hunting.

    Thanks, djb2 :thumbs_up

    Interesting! Do they ever come loose or cause accuracy issues (develop rail marks)? My guess is they show up well in low light using a flashlight but would be hard to see in bright daylight. ...

    The Lumenok crossbow flat nock has almost the exact same point of impact as the aluminum flat nock (except it's lit) out of an Excalibur crossbow.

    Lumenok flat nocks work exceptionally well out...

    The pleasures of owning a recurve are many (too numerous to mention). I haven't been plagued by cables and pulleys in many, many years.

    I've never owned an XB30 but if it never needs any adjustment once it's set, I'd stick with it. The Leupold scopes ARE a *Set & Forget* scope.

    Yes, Dan's string stoppers are light years ahead (much better) than the stock Excal stoppers in every respect.

    Give Dan a call and get them ordered. You'll be glad you did. (740-483-2312)

    I agree, Pin. The string will find its own place in behind the arrow (not the exact center) for best accuracy.
