Excalibur Micro 355 Cabela’s Canada package Deal

Recommended Posts

Yes I bought it it was $999.99. That's $300  off the package and $100 bellow the price of the bow by itself. The crank that came with it is a god send. The bow is 280 pounds pull using the rope cocking aid it is 140 pounds pull. I can cock it with the rope but more than a few times is MURDER. It is a Micro so the limbs are very short hence the 280 pound pull. It's a sweet shooter.

I've never  used a crossbow. What is the max kill distance. 

I really have no Idea. For me it would be maybe 50 yards with a good rest. On you tube many folks are shooting deer farther. It would be irresponsible to shoot at distances without using a range finder. Crossbows and all bows have quite an arc in the trajectory. Knowing the exact distance is crucial. The scope with mine is graduated 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 yards. I have never shot a deer with any kind of bow.

I have not hunted deer in over 20 years but before that I harvested 21with a rifle, all but one were under 50 yards, one was 75 yards.

As with all hunting shot placement is the key. Risky shots should always be passed up.

Hi Weed, sounds like my story too. All my deer were under 50yds also. Except my largest, a 7 pointer at around 65 yds. A very lucky 2nd shot at that with a slug. All were taken with a 30.30 Marlin or a Ithaca Deerslayer slug gun. Both with iron sights. I was too poor to buy a scope at the time,lol.

I shot my 1st deer with a 30-30 Marlin 170 grain nylon tip round nose of course . Great little gun dropped a nice 2 year old 6 point. Dropped in it's tracks. The 30-30 is going the right speed for up and close in the thick woods.
