After filling a tag and realizing I need a backup plan, I started getting my sub 1 lite ready. Removed ,4-,18 target scope put on this low end utg fixed 4 (I think could be 3) illuminated scope with qd rings which made it easy. After changing the way I hunt to walk and stalk it made me think what a pig this is. Holy crap sure hope the viper doesn't break down. No way I want to carry this all day.

What's your backup rig?

I really don't have a back-up. I have 4 crossbows & i just grab the next in line after the 1st one makes a kill.
I have 3 crossbows and look at it the same way too. See my signature...........

I have 2 Mission MXB 400's set up just alike. A black one is for blind hunting. The camo bow is for not blind hunting. The difference this year the camo is shooting Swat X mag broadheads the black bow is shooting NAP FOC broadheads. Trying to make up my mind between the 2 heads. I also have a Excalibur Bulldog 360 thats ready to hunt. I think its going to be my Doe bow.

They are all capable of being a full time bow.

Like some others i really don't have a back up.

My TS 370 with a UTG 3x9x32 scope is 7.9 lb.....my backup is a DRT 385 with same scope at 7.3 lb. I rope cock, so no added weight there and I carry my arrows in a tube. For stalking I use a single point harness.
Still really impressed with the DRT 385. MY BIL bought one last year and had it over shooting it the other day. With Pile Driver arrows and $65 Lumix 4x scope out to 50 yards, it shoots just as good as my high dollar TenPoint bows with custom arrows shoot, and is WAY lighter.

My back up plan is an extra string, set of Allen wrenches and an extra set of limbs for my Excalibur Assassin 400TD.

I think I may have a problem. I have extra limbs and strings for 3 of mine. ;) Won’t be like that forever. Downsize coming next year.:cautious:
