Exomax Trigger

Post by ko4nrbs » Sat Nov 11, 2017 11:40 am

I was thinking about installing a Trigger Tech Trigger in my Exomax until my brother-in-law watched me shoot. I use his much bigger back yard as my crossbow range.

His observations greatly improved my accuracy. It had much more to do with my shooting form than the crossbow. I would hold my head up just before pulling the trigger for some reason?? It looks like I developed a very sloppy shooting habit. With his help I started keeping my eye on the bullseye until the arrow strikes the target. In addition I refocused all my attention on holding the scope’s reticle on the bulls eye instead of on the trigger pull. I now just squeeze the trigger slowly like you are supposed to. When the crossbow fires it now a surprise. No more anticipating the shot.

Nothing really new I had just gotten lazy and sloppy. I have now rediscovered just how accurate my Exomax is!!

I have only missed one deer with a crossbow so far. I missed a doe after installing lighted nocks in my arrows because I pulled the trigger and lifted my head up to watch the lighted nock. It hit under her belly at a measured 25 yards. :roll: An easy shot turned to a miss by simply not following through. :wink:

Amazing how something so simple as just "following through" can improve groups.
(Something I frequently have to remind myself of when my shooting gets sloppy. :wink: :lol: :lol: )

Thats why any form of archery is so rewarding .l had many ups and downs with my longbows .such as grip,dropping the bow arm. Crossbow longbow, compound we learn and forget its why it never gets old.

That's a great tip that has helped me. I've caught myself trying raise up and watch the nock. Trying to watch the shot through the scope pretty much forces you to follow through.
