Yari - Thanks for the early Bday present... --099-780...I was in the external garage (EG) a few weeks ago and notice this box setting on top of my camo clothes, I kept in a scent free container....and wonder when did I ordered this stuff?? I am sure the guys in the club will like it...LOL...maybe I was going to do comparisons with the Morrell and the Block targets....oh yea, now I remember, wanted something small and portable to discharge the bow on to......I never dry fire the crossbow....never....

Thinking about getting a new Scope for it....humm....a Zeiss ??

yes sir. i've been rehabbing my shoulder for 6-7 weeks. shooting has been OK. i'm only getting 20-25 shot in though. trying not to over do it

here's a question. does anyone put anything on their handle to prevent slipping? in the summer heat, my palm sweats and it slips. for some reason it really bad this year. getting too old i guess @--0--0117 i think mole skin would be too thick?

I found some one tape for hockey stick blades. believe it or not, I remember I used this on my of Screaming and strike Eagle bows. I even found it where I thought it would be.  @--0--0118 it's a little sticky now, but will wear as I shoot. it was much better than slipping. thx all for jogging my memory

A bit high except for the one flier, if you can figure out the cause of the flier the rest is just a matter of tweaking pins?  Because of some ongoing shoulder issues, in recent years I haven't been shooting as many arrows, focusing instead on "first shot" placement at random distances.  I'll set the target up and toss arrows in a few different places, then go to the shaft, estimate the distance, draw and hold for a bit like I'm waiting for a deer to step into the clear, and then shoot.  Might only take 12-15 shots in an outing (last year took very few).  I do some shooting off my deck to simulate an elevated stand, in that case I'm at more of a fixed range and will shoot a few groups, but again typically not too many draws for the sake of the old shoulder.  Keep at it MIB, practice makes perfect.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

keep after it. i set my 40 yard pin this weekend. unfortunately, that's all the room i have. i wish i could go 70-80. it sure tightens the groups

i'm 26 days from the WI opener. i'll head up this weekend and check cams, fertilize and get stands prepped. hopefully there is a toad to go after

nice shooting HM. do you guys like shooting single spots? at $10-$15 and arrow, that can get expensive. once i get out to 40, i'll shoot a single spot

i had my first nice 40 yard round this AM. 5 for 5 in a fist sized group. prior to that, i've been sending 1 or 2 shots per round off the mark. with limited time in the AM before work, i haven't taken any pics. the next afternoon i shoot, i'll post. it's been too hot in the afternoons around here lately. but losing 3 minutes/day of light will force me to shoot after work pretty soon.

shoot straight!

I shoot in 3 arrow cycles (shoot 3, rest for 5 or 10, shoot again). when I am still dialing in, I will shoot one spot. Once I start getting close, like the pic above, I will move to different spots.

I've been focussing more on form and working around my shoulder pain.   The groups will tighten up if I can work through that.

If not, there is still the crossbow. LOL

Yari - When I first got the PSE-TAC15i, I thought to myself, Wow, what kind of wicked weapon do I have hear. After ordering it took me two years before it finally came in...and having shot it about 75 times over the year, I can tell you that this bow is a wicked weapon, holy smokes...but it is not practical for the woods. For the range yes it probably would out shoot most high powered rifle shooters, using high powered rifles while I would use the TAC15i, man it is deadly and wicked!! After shooting it a few times, I knew this was a too heavy and to long for the woods...even with a Caldwell Field Pod....

About 3 years ago, bought a smaller and almost as fast as the PSE was a Styker Solutions LS....unbeknownst to me at the time of my purchased, went back to the local shop 4 time and shot it three times before I finally purchased it....that Split Toe had purchased a Styker Katrina the year before I purchased mine. Think I miss the entire Archery season due to all my knee surgeries! and did not realize that he had purchased it....but once we started comparing them last year, we both laughed and said that  they were good crossbows....

I have shot mine already this year one day probably around 20 times.....so need to shoot it once a week until I head south for the archery season, and maybe can use it for the black power or muzzle loader season as well??...humm....something to think about....

But yes I am getting there...slowly but surely....

I was shooting last night.  I am fine at 20, 30 and 40 but forget 50.  But that's OK here in GA its too think any way for distance shooting.  We do not have any bean fields.  Yet.  How about Split Toe  --099-780  Just one really big bean field for some long range  --09--0
