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.
Lethal Heathen: 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!
Ryan Eru: Even with 20" bolts and hunting heads I wouldn't recommend anything over 30
yards for deer shots alone.
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! ;-)
adrian stringer: how r u reloading so fast?
stingray8213: trust me i get your meaning on my yardage measurements but my main goal
here was to sight my bow in at these different yardages with the 3 dot
lazer sight.. a range finder takes the guess work out of finding the right
shot range in the field....thanks
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
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...
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: lol at least someone knows what there talking about lol your exactly right
Adam C: Excellent shooting. Very effective kill shots. How many yards away can you
take down a deer with that Jaguar 175lb crossbow?
Ars Garn Yam Marra: yes
stingray8213: the jaguar will take down a bear or deer at over 40 yards
Ars Garn Yam Marra: that's all its about mate. something tasty to eat and keeping the skills
Ars Garn Yam Marra: its around 240 250 fps and is indeed lethal inside 40 yards.
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: this is true with branches and wind i never shoot unless iam assured of a
clean kill shot ..its not my first day guys..
juki0h: question: can you use a 150 pound limb on this crossbow if the limb that
came with it breaks?
Ars Garn Yam Marra: if your a natural shot or train for coupla weeks/month etc you can
regularly hit the kill zone size of a soccer ball easily at 30 yards and
under that no worries. Aluminium or carbon arrows work fine with broads or
target points. I've learned not to shoot at the longer ranges because no
matter how good you get more things can go wrong the further the bolt has
to fly(branches, wind). I respect the animals I kill, I go for under 20-25
yards always. I agree about the skill & pressure thing.
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
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
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.
indyme2: Right on the money, Stingray.
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...
stingray8213: lol you got that exactly right brother...lol
