    Good for you. I took both of mine apart to polish the claws and took some of the creep out too. There really wasnt much to begin with.

    I like BEEs too. They shoot very well for me, but I also bought them spine indexed. I had mixed results with Gold Tip Laser 2s last year. Some would shoot broadheads well, some needed help. I...

    A recurve crossbow is going to be much louder than a recurve bow. Maybe going to 9 - 10 grains per pound of draw weight would help. The type of string and the string stoppers are the most effective...

    It would be much more difficult to make the horizontal nock travel on a crossbow and a rail as perfect as it should be for good arrow flight, than it is with a vertical bow and adjustable rest. Most...

    Last update, I promise!

    As per Todd the Archer's request, here is the whole setup including Randy XX75's excellent string stop/quiver mount. Still a really nice weight with the quiver and arrows on. Seems to shoot the...

    Glad to hear. Damage was done. Attempts at improvement are taking place. Some forgive quickly, others very slowly if ever.

    Strings on a recurve can make such a difference. My quest for 2015 is learning to make my own flemish strings for my oddball 32 and 28" bows.

    Finished for now.

    Time to get this ready to hunt. Letting it dry in the sun and breeze. Took it down for these pics. I guess it goes together for a range trip early next week.:thumbs_up

    Thanks guys. I looked at it this morning and despite being a satin finish, there was too much gloss for a hunting weapon and the range I hope to use it. A few minutes with 0000 steel wool fixed it...

    Good Day!

    Nice to have time to "play."

    Stock is finished for now, until after hunting season. A few pores showing a little, easily fixed with Deft satin lacquer. I'm sure it will get beat up a little and...

    I have an older Vixen with a 14" rail, as compared to the Axiom's 14.5" rail, very similar. I packed the rail with foam, wrapped the stirrup, put limbsavers on the limbs, S-5 system on, tried to use...

    I think all of the crossbows you are considering will do the job. The Axiom with a 400 gr. arrow will probably be around 290, adequate, but less than the other 2. The Ten Point is a nice package. ...

    Good work. The setups look good. Sucks for Mike that stuff is stolen on his own land. I would not trust a ground blind on any place I have permission to hunt and certainly not on public land.
