Sweet!
You may want to shoot at different bulls before you damage some arrows!
Thanks for sharing with us!

Yep I reworked the trigger and that's about it I did put a range finder on it, the strings and cables are in good shape have about 100 shots on them and will be rigging up something on my bow press so I can re-serve my string when need be

I thought by shooting at 90yds the bolts would come out a little easies but its like Im getting the same penetration
Yup, those arrows are buried pretty deep in the target.
What speed is the target rated for?

It is always hard to pull field points out of a foam broadhead target. That one looks like it had been shot a lot which makes it a lot easier to pull them. Get an arrow puller and it will make pulling both field points and broadheads a lot easier. :)

I enjoy ground blind hunting hogs Jan - April and spend a great deal of time at night in blinds and generally space is a premium. Make sure the tripod you pick is SMALL enough to fit your space. It needs to fit the same area your chair sets in without the legs getting in the way of your feet and allow your xbow to be stable and in the right shooting/panning position .

I prefer a tripod with a fixed width vs ones that can be set at any angle. So far I've been happy with the small Caldwell and I believe BOG has one too. The three legs have a folding brace that helps with stability.
