Safety on or off?

Can somebody please tell me, When I am cocking back my crossbow to load the bolt for a morning hunt, do I leave the safety on when pulling the string back to fully cocked , or safety off, load an arrow(still safety off!?) then engage the safety after fully loaded???..........sonny :shock:

Re: FLEMISH DYNA STRINGS

Janesy, The Zeiss scope has FPS velocity adjustment to correct arrow drop at different ranges. If the scope is not dialed in for arrow speed, how can you possibly hope to hit center, when your shots are dropping down from your crosshair measurement placement? You can be dead on at 20 yards, but then...

Re: FLEMISH DYNA STRINGS

Just had two Boo strings for my matrix 380 crossbow made.....waited 8 months.........I shot my crossbow at 20 yards a zeroed it in, then moved to 30 yards to adjust my scope (zeiss) for arrow speed, as I do not have a chronograph. I couldn't believe that at the thirty yards, using my thirty yard cro...

pennsylvania herd is down

Well, I am starting to get real tired hearing some guys on private large farms bragging that they see too many deer. The general population of hunters on public hunting grounds see nothing, or if they do, they kill every doe they see. These are the same people who say, if you don't take them, somebo...

Re: matrix 380 with factory 19" arrows

Yes, what your saying makes sense. I tried to get a dead nutts on center using an extra long level an also use a smaller level on scope top cap to line up limb with scope. This proved almost impossible from a balancing act to achieve absolute perfect alignment. The idea on a plumb bob to get the aim...

Re: matrix 380 with factory 19" arrows

I thought so!!!!............the average guy is happy hitting a baseball at 30 yrds....Just like competition compounds!, you really have to work the crossbow over ,to bring it up to its maximum shooting ability. The better scope would be a better choice to adjust P.O.I, an accuracy of the weapon over...

matrix 380 queston

while I am shooting my new matrix 380, I can swear I can see the arrow tail out to the left an the tip corrects this, an when it hits the target ,it is straight. Am I seeing things or will the correct arrow combination fly dead straight like a dart?I cannot imagine how a 2'' vein can stabilize the a...

matrix 380 with factory 19" arrows

Just got finished my first go with my matrix 380 in the back yard an it was a blast. I leveled up the limbs with a bubble level to be sure the scope crosshairs were perfectly lined up with a level bow. the 20 yard target was about 4" high 1" right....I clicked an clicked my way down to just about de...

season end crossbow put away???

I have just bought my first crossbow, the matrix 380. When my archery season is over for me, I was wondering if removing the string is what should be done to remove all limb stress, or put the string changer on ,an leave it slightly cocked in the wrist notch, greatly reducing the stress. What is the...
