Well, crossbow season is coming up on us fast.

So, I took our Barnett Recruit down off the nail it's been hanging on in the basement for the last 10 or 11 months because I wanted to wax up the string, and check the scope and stuff.

Which I'm glad I did.

It barely hit the bottom of the target at the same distance that I shot that doe with last year. Beyond me how the scope could move 8 inches below the point of aim but it did.

But that's not what I wanted to show you. We were able to rezero the scope in about 5 minutes and 4 or 5 walks back and forth to the target, but I was wanting to show you the first and second shots at the target.

My youngest son was behind the trigger. I told him we should write Barnett and complain and maybe get a free pack of arrows for our trouble LOL

I wonder if there is a such thing as "too good"? Darn good way to blow a $6 arrow right out of the gate.

But the look on his face was worth every penny of it when he first saw it. I think we both had to do a double-take.

You should send them a copy of the pic and explanation above. For their laughs. If I got that at my business you'd have some free arrows.

He hung the arrows up on his bedroom wall.

I don't blame him for being proud of that shot. That's not something that happens every day. I've actually never seen that happen in person. And I sure have never done it.

I did write Barnett on their contact us page and included the links to the pictures. Maybe they'll send him some swag. That was an unbelievable shot.

Well, I think he could. But it would be pretty hard for him considering he'd be shooting at a fast moving target. :D
