Bottle cap time again.

Standard plastic cap from a soda, or water bottle.

Scotch tape the cap to a standard 8X11 paper, or improvise if needed.

Closest to the center of the cap from 10 yards.

Here's the catch - You have to shoot it in the dark.

You can use a flashlight, or a bow light to illuminate your target.
No other type lighting is allowed.

You can place the light free standing at the target,
You can have the light mounted on your bow,
or You can have someone else hold the light for you, but they must stand behind you.

Good Luck, and Have Fun !!!!

Rick

Lmao. Dang it Rick. This could have been my chance to cash in.

Honey could you help me? Yes all you have to do is hold this light. No, just a little further left . . .

Don't fret over this one folks. Getter done.
It ain't that hard, and it gives more working stiffs a chance to shoot it.

I've been shooting Sacajawea this evening so I can't do it. I get home at 7:00 and waiting till dark to shoot will be the hardest thing. Maybe before I leave at 5:00 am. That might work out.

Just got in from work, and shot it. Propped light on ground. 1st pic is light I shot with, but doesn't show much. Second pic shows the shot; then measure pic at 2-5/8"

Just shot mine. Didn't have a water bottle cap so I used one off the Mickey's 40 that I was relaxing with. Looks like 1 3/4" or so.

I shot last night and was a foot off. The darkness really changed my sighting perception. So I kept shooting...and it took a little while for me to get close

Good job CRM95.

I ended up going to the deer lease for Father's Day, and we're spending the night here tonight. I'll get us something set up tomorrow when I get home. Lots of good shooting this week!!

First shot was done with my bow light. Very close to the cap. 3/4" center to center.



Second shot was with a head lamp. I could use some practice with it. 2-5/8 c2c
