Shot about 15 shots at 22 yards with target points in my backyard. I was consistently touching a 1" bullseye at that range and just got reminded how fast and powerful that thing is. I've yet to shoot at an actual live animal but am truly looking forward to being able to humanely harvest one soon. Thinking I may even turkey hunt with it after taking one with my shotgun. At 350 FPS, that bolt gets on the target at 22 yards very quickly though a little louder than I ideally prefer. Does anyone else shoot a crossbow on here and if so how do you like harvesting with it?

I took two WT with my tenpoint and two hogs. It has proved lethal for all. Shoots same hole at 40 yds. It's sweet for hunting at night with the illuminated reticle, in good moonlight you don't even need the additional hog lights.

Washington, I was thinking the same thing about evening hot hunting. On my Hellcat, I have the illuminated Cross scope.

Yeah man, it's awesome. I'm not sure how much night hunting you do, but, usually the dimmest red setting works the best at dusk, green dim in the morning, not sure why. Actually I was stoked after the first shot I did with this, only problem I ran into was when I went to range it, I realized my finder didnt have a illuminated yd reading, haha, that was disappointing.

Anyway, sometimes I'll strap the green light on the top of the scope too, but I've found sometime that light spooks them even though its not suppose to. Oh and one last thing, I was hunting from a dog house once upon a time for WT, and forgot to turn my reticle off from the night before hog hunt, the deer totally saw it within my scope and spooked em, it was nuts.

Awesome info on the light red and green setting for dusk/dawn. I will definitely test that out too...
