Old Skool Weekend

Postby flightattendant100 » Sun Apr 09, 2017 6:39 pm

I went to the lease this weekend to try a pig hunt. Colton wanted to stay home and ride bikes with his friends, so it was just me. I decided to take an older Excalibur Vortex because I am kind of partial to it. They are such sweet shooters, I decided to go ahead and go ALL Old Skool! I used Firebolt arrows and Magnus Stinger broadheads. I had a ball and did manage to bag a porker.ImageImageImageImageImage
Fun weekend.

Nice hog. I bet he did not even notice that he got shot with a Vortex. :)

Congratulations Paul! I'm with you on the Vortex! Before the Matrix came out, it was my favorite bow!
