Can you believe it? 60 days until the opening of bow season here in Louisiana on October 1st. I am more excited than a kid in a candy store. I feel like Ralphie in "The Christmas Story". Just this past week, I was given a new tip that I wanted to pass along to all of you crossbow hunters out there.
However, the less the weight also means less accuracy is going to occur during the flight path of the arrow. I have been shooting 100 grain tips and I am very accurate at short ranges. If I wander out past about 25-30 yards, suddenly my groups are not so tight. So much so that I would likely not take a shot past 40 yards on an animal ever.

Update: This tip is specifically for bows and crossbows that shoot above 300 feet per second.
I am going to make the switch in the coming weeks and will give you a report in September. One thing to remember is to also pick up some field points that are also 125 grain so that your practice is an exact match to your actual hunting shots.
Try it out and see if your accuracy goes up out to 40-50 yards with tight groups.
