I'm going to take it back to what got me shooting these things. The night shot. You step back ten yards illuminate the target however you wish it just has to be shined from your direction. Take a small piece of paper I did like a two by two and a half. draw a one by one box on it. We are doing closest to the center of the box. As you can tell I didn't it measure mine bonehead play of the day I pulled my arrow before I was able to put a measurement to it and forfeit my shot.

Looks like you still had a pretty good shot!! I will probably have Sacajawea in a few days, so I'm going to hold off and shoot this one with her when she gets here. If not, I'll shoot it with my bow before the week is out.

Had the point lollipoping the bottom of the square square.

Don't know whether I plucked a little or the light refraction had me looking at it a bit wrong, but It was close enough not to worry about it. I love shooting in the dark with a light.

Light was mounted on the bow

Great shot Ellis !!!

Anything close to the paper in the dark, even with the light at 10 yards is a good shot.

I cheated a little.
I set my crawl nocking point to the 10 yard spot before I went outside.
I can't see it in the dark, but I can feel it.
It's adjustable. I usually leave it set for 20, but for this I just screwed it down the string to the 10 yard spot before I went out. Worked like a charm.

Thanks, Rick. Definitely pleased to be that close on the first shot in almost two weeks. Propped up a headlight about six feet from target; tried using the red lens, but couldn't see the one-inch square at all, so went with white light. Great shot yourself! Looks like that finger is working fine. BTW, my tape doesn't have 32nds" on it...

I just shot mine, and was about 4'' low so I didn't take a pic. I love shooting at night though!! I would shoot a few more since I'm on call until 5 a.m. anyway, but the dogs will bark the whole time and wake the neighbors up so I'm gonna wait until tomorrow.

Four inches is in the kill zone, CRM; plus, most deer duck, anyway. If it were golf, we'd say you missed it on the "pro" side.

That is totally dependant on where you aim! If I miss 4" low on a critter, and he does not react in time, a lot of times that would be a clean miss low for me!

I usually aim at the top of the heart (Main artery area).

If they don't duck, that'll get me heart & lungs.

If they do duck, that'll get me lungs.

And, if I happen to shoot a little high or low due to something I did, I'm still in the boiler room.

Of course, you know as well as I do, it don't always work out exactly as planned, but aiming at that area, seems to give me the largest margin for error, or duckage.

Another good thing about that spot is, it will do damage to the shoulder muscles, which makes it harder for them to travel. That's especially true if you get a pass through, which I usually do.

Feisty crowd.

Just saying 4 inches ain't bad shooting -- especially at night. And if any animal happens to duck a little, it's still good. Not saying anyone is shooting deer at night ... 'course CRM IS in East Texas.... I kid.

& I don't mind that.

BUT, I was talking about this discussion here. The law will be shutting down the Trad side of TBH for collusion with poachers/poaching.

Someone needs to jump in here, shoot the darn square, and turn it in by midnight.
I don't want the call.

I've racked my brain all day trying to come up with something new in case my shot holds. So far I'm drawing a blank.

I forfeit my shot. Post midnight. Same dayish and too late. I shot yesterday at Double G around 4:30pm before they closed. Got the RH Blueridge reserved and double nocked. About 1 1/4". Closer to center cut riser is nice.

I look forward to a tp roll of something.
