Crossbow Practice

I was able to get in a few practice shots yesterday with my Tenpoint Maverick. The bow is sighted in and ready for the season.  The only thing left to do is shoot my Magnus Buzz Cut Broadheads.

Hunting With a Crossbow

Is it legal to use a crossbow in your state?  24 states allow the use of crossbows the entire archery season and 28 states allow limited use.  I think every state should allow the use of crossbows.

Shooting a crossbow is archery hunting.  If you do not know the distance to your target, you will miss.  It is not like shooting a rifle.  Today's modern compound bows shoot 40, 50, yards, some could argue they are to advanced for the true archer...

Call your State Representative if crossbow hunting is not legal in your state.  Advocate and drive a change in policy and dispel the myths of crossbow hunting.

Shooting My .243

I was at the Western Pa Wounded Warriors range yesterday shooting my .243 rifle.  I was very happy to see that someone had made a new shooting bench. Being a quadriplegic, I use my own brace, but this would be fantastic for an able-bodied shooter or even a paraplegic.

Here is my first shot of the day at 50 yards. I made some adjustments and continued shooting. I used to shoot much better, but I believe I'm doing as well as I can right now.  I know with practice I can tighten up my groups.

Here are the results of shooting at 100 yards.  I can't wait to go back to the range and get better with the rifle. After my Hog hunt in September, I plan on replacing my scope.

Later this week I plan on shooting my crossbow which is still my favorite form of hunting.

G-Shock Rangeman GW9400

The Rangeman 9400 from Casio is a great watch.  I received the watch a few weeks ago and love it.  I have other solar powered atomic watches from Casio and they all perform great but I really like the looks of this watch.

I can't wait until I can take it out hunting this season.  I have a feeling this watch will rarely be leaving my wrist.  What is your favorite watch?

Crossbow Practice

I did a little shooting yesterday with my Tenpoint Maverick crossbow.  It's the first time I have shot my crossbow since last year.  As you can see, I am shooting just a hair to the right.  The next time out I will adjust my scope and get into the black.

This was the first shot at twenty yards.
This was at 40 yards

Plano Manta Crossbow Case

I just purchased the Manta Crossbow Case for my Tenpoint crossbow.  It looks like a great hard case with plenty of room for my xbow and accessories.  This is not going to be my everyday case, I will just use it for long trips. 
After putting it together I can say the directions were bad.  The pictures were so dark I could not see them.  This Youtube video was very helpful, I believe I could do brain surgery if I watched it a few times...

.243 Shooting, BMF Trigger Adapter

It's been a long time since I have shot a rifle, I am more interested in crossbow hunting. But I wanted to shoot my .243 for an upcoming hog hunt in September.

Trail Camera 2014

It's been a while since I have posted. I have been busy fishing and shooting, as well as  preparing for the upcoming seasons. Here is the first trail camera picture of the year. It looks like we have one buck in the area.  It's pictures like this that motivate me to sharpen my abilities with my crossbow.
