We haven't had much to say lately here so I thought I give my latest experience using the Excalibur crossbow. Having shot two deer this year the Excalibur is no longer a virgin. Hitting both deer broadside making a high/low double lung shot resulted in severe damage to the lungs resulting in a very quick death. I use Muzzy MX3 broadheads behind the 200 draw weight of the bow. Having had to switch to a crossbow due to neck/shoulder problems insures that I stay in the woods during archery seasons in the midwest.
