James K.: At 35 yards, that's 5 dead deer,lol.They make some lube to put on the rail where the arrow slides. Helps alot. Gonna get one of these to play with, price not bad. I had a serious compound crossbow years ago I should have kept but needed some money so sold it However I like the simplicity of the recurve crossbow, less to worry about.Now that you had this for a few years what are your long term thoughts on this particular bow? Crossbows are legal here in Illinois for seniors and handicap persons to deer hunt, may be legal for everyone by now, have to check. Thanks for the vid.
Jimmy Rustles: I've put a 3x9 scope on it and I've had shots with this thing hitting the target out to 50 yards plus using fiberglass bolts, it's a really good inexpensive crossbow.
Liam Harris: +stingray8213 Thanks for the good video, and nice shooting. I'm thinking of getting a armex jaguar 175lb. I think it's the same as the one you are shooting.
How did you shoot those first bolts in such quick succession?
austin golden: why does everyone say they don't shoot past 35 yards? I shoot a 70 pound compound bow and it'll kill a deer at 60 yards easy. ive killed rabbits at 60 yards with judo tips
oldtoys1961: Just bought one today and I have to say I'm impressed. Them little Asians have been making bows for centuries. The 16" bolts that come with it are a bit too heavy. I'd say 370-380 gr is a good weight to shoot with this Xbow. Any more and it could stress the prod and string. Those included bolts are heavy for a 16" and are 2219 aluminum with 125gr target heads weighing in at 397gr- 407gr. The Jag shoots better than my Barnett Panzer 5. Now I need to chrony it. But I use 18" Barnett 2216 cut down to 17" with 125 target or Broadheads for 371gr-380gr total and they are deadly. I believe Easton makes the Barnett arrows, I just don't like the grn/blk fletches on them. I wouldn't go for deer over 30yds though, smaller critters ok.
Offshore Drifter: How come you didn't shorten those carbon express bolts?
They seem too long for the Jaguar at 20".
17" or 18" would be better I recon...
adrian stringer: how r u reloading so fast?
End Is Never: Really awesome video. I got the same bow by PoeLang. How is it holding up and whats that awesome bipod you got on it? Thanks brother!
Ars Garn Yam Marra: ...well its illegal here so not in a dudes best interest to be filming such goings on sir.. lol.... it would be jail time here if caught!!! You guys are so lucky with your relaxed hunting laws. I have heard though that members of the royal family and the rich elites hunt with bows and xbows on a private estate in Scotland, yet us common folks by their law cant do the same!!!!! lol... I pay no attention and just crack on regardless. If they do it, I bloody will! ;-)
stingray8213: yes i totally agree dave seems there is always a twig or bush in the way lol..the deer are good at always standing behind something or always giving a 1/4 and away shot ..darn tricky critters or when they start snorting all over the place because i turned on my piece of crap camera and spooked em ya know whats harder than shooting them is filming it...lol...thanks brother...
stingray8213: ok..lol here is a comment to solve all comments..lol i shoot my bow enough to guesstimate..lol. arrow drop at any yardage whiten inches of the kill zone center the crossbow is as accurate as a riffle.with practice you could light a wooden match with a arrow at 25 yards i have shot other arrows into the knock and spine of a targeted arrow at 40 yards..there are some slow mo arrow shots at hanging targets check my other videos..thanks
stingray8213: lol you got that exactly right brother...lol
Ars Garn Yam Marra: that's all its about mate. something tasty to eat and keeping the skills alive.....
Ars Garn Yam Marra: I never said it was stingray. i'm not saying anything bad about your shooting or anything else. I was agreeing with you and i just meant yes a jag at 40 yards is lethal but I dont hunt those distances because wind has got hold of the bolts or ive pierced many a branch in the way myself. lol....Its all part of the game though. Its all good and its all fun. Mr unicorn is pointing out the obvious in that you need to hit the engine room. Thats true at any distance. Thanx for sharing the videos. Dave
Ars Garn Yam Marra: Dude I have no issues killing stuff with my jag xbow. I understood clearly what you meant and yes deer walk and move around lol....... I dont sit in high chairs waiting, i like to stalk upwind. Inside 30 yards the shot isn't that different than 10 yards due to the power of the xbow. it shoots very straight at what i'm aiming at with little or no increase or decrease in elevation. As for wisdom n skill, practice makes perfect and I enjoy my venison. I hope you enjoy yours.
stingray8213: iam using a 20 inch carbon express arrow with a 120 grain muzzy broad head they are quite heavy increasing kinetic energy on impact i have had complete pass through at large deer i only hunt my own property the only hunting pressure is me i practice almost every day my blind is set at 35 yards to the apple tree were they come to eat every day its perfect..you guys can discuss variations in shot ,yardage, wind, and everything else while i keep bagging nice deer..thanks
stingray8213: this is true with branches and wind i never shoot unless iam assured of a clean kill shot ..its not my first day guys..
stingray8213: very true and being a hunter over 30 years and a expert with a firearm and u.s.m.c. vet and rifle expert you wouldnt want to be at the receiving end of my sights..lol with any weapon..thanks brother..
stingray8213: lol at least someone knows what there talking about lol your exactly right branni..thanks
stingray8213: i have never shot at any wildlife over 20 yards..but i wanted to know i could if need be at 40 yards..some tree stand compound bows shoot at over 60 or even 80 yards to there target as they do have more power but i like close and personal..when shooting bear its a good idea to not be to close to your target 40 yards is perfect the 20 inch carbon fiber with a 125 grain grizzly broad head will have complete pass through even at 40 yards...
