Old Skool Weekend

Post by 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!

I once had a vortex too. Now that I hunt with a Micro that old bow looks huge.. lol

Our local archery shop still has a few aluminum rail ibex bows. :)
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.
