Crossbow hunting for deer and other big game is spreading across the continent. The northeast region of the United States is establishing deer seasons for crossbows where they have never been allowed before. Even in the western states of Montana and Utah crossbow seasons have been established.
The thousands of hunters who have made the transition to the crossbow and those who will have found that sighting in a crossbow can be a lengthy, time consuming process, but there is help available right now. The X-Bow Laser Bore Sighter by Slammer Hunting Innovations has made the sighting in process quick and simple.
The X-Bow Laser Bore Sighter follows the principles of sighting in with a laser bore sighter for a rifle, but it is in the design of a crossbow arrow with a finely tuned laser which is calibrated to the inside of the arrow shaft. The nock of the arrow is also the switch to activate the laser which is powered by four small batteries located inside the shaft.
The sight in process is best done with the crossbow in a gun vise or similar devise and set up seven (7) yards from the target. Simply slide the laser devise under the string of the crossbow exactly as you would an arrow. Turning the laser on will project a laser dot on the target. Adjust the vise holding the crossbow to there the laser dot in in the center of the bull’s eye, then remove and turn off the X-Bow Laser Bore Sighter at this point.
Then adjust the windage and elevation of the scope or red dot sight to the exact point in the center of the bull’s eye to correlate where the laser dot was located. At this point, the crossbow will be dead on at twenty (20) yards. The whole process takes only a few minutes and your first arrow out of the your crossbow will be in the bull’s eye at twenty yards.
