Storage tips for your Excalibur Crossbow.

Hunting season is over and it’s time to hang up that archery gear unless your 3D shooting or use an indoor range. I use my BowTech for those events so I winterized my Excalibur Exocet Crossbow today.

A few simple things you can do to help ensure your crossbow is stored right starting with removing the dissipator pads. Two small Allen screws secure it to the frame. When you remove your string but before releasing it take those two pads off. Then remove your string and store in a dry location.

You might want to re-wax the slide rail and check all the screws for tightness. I take the battery out of my Vortex Crossbow Scope at this time also.

Check you crossbow all over for any nicks or gouges so you can have it looked at if necessary.

That’s all it takes, a few minutes and your done.

I also remove any hunting heads on my crossbow bolts and safely store them away.
