    First kills with new 120lbs crossbow

    Went out last night spotlighting with a mate and heard the sound of an animal running on grass then I looked with the torch and got a glimpse of it go into a old pipe after scaring it out I shot it with the cross bow. On our way back home I spotted a possum up a tree, But I didn't know weather to shot it our not because I mite lose my arrow But decided to take a shot, I hit it the arrow went wright into the front of its head but it was still moving around then it ran down the tree and swam across the creek and climbed up another tree then I shot it again and the arrow went strait through it through but I got it down and and smacked it on the head. Finally I killed it!

    Well done PT. good skills
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I've got one of them too. So easy to lose arrows.
