    OK also going to need a case as well dimensions of Crossbow are 35 (L) X 20.5 (W) X 10.6 (H) minimum.

    So in the end I am going to be in for almost 700 bucks and that is probably very cheap compared to most on here.

    Bow 333.00
    Bolts 65

    Target 60.00
    Broad heads 120.00 (Need 6)
    Case100.00

    I will get a bag target next month once I get my first pay from the new job. He is have a bit of a time to it as his arms are not quite long enough and he's not quite strong enough to make it click in. Will have to work on that.
    Are you sure that you packed the clothes in the feed sack really tight. I use a feed sack stuffed with clothes and it holds my exalibur bolts really well, they dont penetrate more than a few inches, definitely not more than half way. Give it a go again, jam those old clothes in there tight, it should do the trick. You are using field points correct. It has to work

    OK I think the crossbow is sited in, this is freehand @ 35 yards.

    Probably need a bit fine tuning. Then I will site in my old Barrete.

    You have to get those x6 bull target panels GW.. those x-bow carbon arrows are far too expensive to tear all the fletchings off.

    It's accuracy, NOT groupings with bows....new Bull (POA) with every shot. Then patch and reuse.

    It's nice to get a 'Robin Hood"...but way too expensive now HaHa...

    I use little pieces of masking tape in random spots as a "bullseye" so it doesn't beat up the same spot on the target all the time or beat up the arrows.

    To late I bought a dozen extra bolts cost me 130.00 bucks.

    I'm thinking when I am dead my son will probably never have to buy another firearm / bow for hunting.

    I have asked him to promise never to sell any he can only buy more.

    Or maybe I can take this stuff to the afterlife like a Viking. Reminds me I don't have a sword.
