Haven't had to move my Xbow scope for the last couple of years.  Dead on at 25 yds, have to shoot at different bulls to avoid destroying bolts.  Will start trying longer ranges even though I never get long shots where I bowhunt.  I think the longer ranges will help reveal any issues I'm having with the hold, trigger, etc.

I had to send my Concorde CB back to Parker last week. So, I took my Parker Buckbuster out and shot it in from my tree stand. Had to adjust the reticle on the scope and three shots all in a 1 circle of the target spot I aimed at.

I need to shot the Styker Crossbow for the 2019 season, hopefully it is still on like it was in 2018, out to 70 yards!!! Wow, it was great shape back in 2018.....now get the smoke pole out and make sure it is own for the 2019 season....

What I will do this year like I have done for the past three seasons, is to head to GA for the last three or four days of Archery and the first three or four days of Muzzle loader then head back to TN and refresh before heading down to GA for our two week annual hunt.....

I will start shooting the crossbow and the compound bow (PSE Mach Flite Four - I know it is old and out of date but I like to still shoot a few arrow through it....for old time sake) probably in about 2 weeks in early August...hopefully only need a few shots at different distances, can go out to 50 yds. in the backyard. So will shoot three arrows at 25 yards then three at 35 and then three at 40 then three at 50 and we will go from there.....

Have been shooting the Styker in the back yard a bunch lately. I will shoot the crossbow afterward the wife does her morning watering of her plants!! LOL....the groups are getting smaller. It seems like with the crossbow as well as the rifle, have to get back use to two things, trigger and breathing controls......I have to be aware of both of those things regardless of what I am shooting.....

Yeah Bo, I have to really think about it too with my crossbow.  The trigger is pretty crisp but it has a really high pull weight.  The longer the shot the more it matters of course.

That's why we practice (or should) practice before the season to get used to thinking about what we are doing. Breathing, etc. We get so used to doing all of that during the season but don't realize that sometimes we forget. Not intentionally but just because we haven't gone through the checklist in nearly a year. Good practice makes good, accurate and ethical shooting.
