My Little Person – only in physical stature, in all actuality she’s larger in heart and personality than most I know, including myself – didn’t kill a turkey again this season. But that’s not from lack of drive on her part – she just picked the wrong two guides: Chevy and me.

Chevy isn’t that bad anymore and he had a great season (in one of these columns, I’ll identify Chevy but that will be a long one). Me, well let me just say that my turkey flaring device sent seven jakes and two long bears on a run – when they flew down from the roost after gobbling all over my hen tree call – in the direction of our next county. And we haven’t seen them since. I think she sticks with me because I taught her to shoot the crossbow, and she insists on hunting turkey with it and not a firearm. Maybe, too she has faith in me because I did help her become a successful crossbow deer hunter.

The Axiom is a user-friendly bow that is easy to assemble, comfortable to use and tough as granite, while being very simple to maintain.

With spring bear season right around the corner, Excalibur offered me their 2010 Axiom to field test against the mighty bruins of Manitoba. I deduced that nothing should work better on a Canadian black bear than a Canadian crossbow so eagerly accepted their offer and shortly thereafter received the Axiom package directly from the Excalibur factory in Ontario.

A whole lot of energy is expended in the consideration of which of the hundreds of broadhead choices has the best flight consistency, shortest blood trail, or toughest construction, but in my experience very little thought goes into the delivery package that puts that broadhead where it needs to go.  By “delivery package” I mean the arrow itself.
