No, not sighted in yet. Hope to remedy that this week.
The target I got from Cabela's sold as a crossbow target wasn't. The very first bolt stuck it and I do mean STUCK! I couldn't budge it trying to pull it out. My oldest son who is a big strong rascal of 38 tried and couldn't budge it. We finally took it over to the concrete parking pad and put arrow tip on concrete and both pushed down on target and it slowly came even and we pulled it out. Needless to say I put it away.
I've called Cabela's and they are sending me a free shipping label to return it for credit. I got to Wal-Mart today and picked up what I think is the Morrell target that Knight & Hale advertise on TV. Their picture is on the label but the Morrell name isn't. I plan to do some shooting tomorrow and maybe will get it sighted in then.
But first shot hit real close so sighting in should go easily I think. With the new crank cocker Horton sent I should now have no problems cocking it. I'm expecting smooth sailing with it from here. Archery deer season opens Oct. 15 and I hope to be out with it then.
Glad to read that Graybeard, I had the same luck as far as pulling out a bolt ! I put 4 bolts into the back of a grizzly bear 3-D they were lazer II goldtips with brass inserts and lost all 4 tips & brass inserts to the bear..must have been a poor glue job with the brass inserts or the bear was mad :shock: Now I have to get 4 new brass inserts for the carbons...Oh well was just one of them days
Ottie to the rescue. He has already e-mailed me back and has the proper size stirrup on the way poste haste. Should be back in business by the weekend I suspect. Just a matter of removing one or two screws and putting on the proper size to replace the one too small.
The biggest problem I have with targets for a crossbow is that most of them are about as thick as a bolt is long. Guess how deep my crossbow will bury a bolt in one! I bought a new YellowJacket target a couple of weeks ago and ended up using an old shaft and a hammer to drive the bolts I shot through far enough to be able to grip them and pull them on through. I think I may try to find or make a foam target about 10 or 12" thick and put it in front of a couple hay bales. If the bolt passes through the bales should stop it. (of course I would only shoot in an area where there was nothing behind the target that could be damaged by a miss or pass through)
