I have been wanting to start this thread for a while. Here are some pix from Ranger Chuck to get us started.
I wanted to thank you for the service and advice you have provided on my TAC15i. I've read some of the problems other say they are having on the forum, but I can honestly say I took my TAC15i out of the box, installed the scope and had it shoot perfect holes through paper. I was also fortunate to have my first shot nearly hit the bullseye without having to make any scope adjustments.
Attached are a couple of nice bucks that I've killed with my TAC15i. I'm shooting the Grim Reapor Crossbow mechanical heads. They work great and leave a tremendous blood trail. I also attached a picture of the massive cut the mechanicals are punching through the deer. All of my shots have passed through the deer and stuck several inches in the ground. The TAC15i is an impressive and quiet crossbow.
The picture is of a 10 point buck I dropped with my TAC-15. The second deer I ever shot. 86 yards away and straight through the heart.
Got him aboard Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany here in SW Georgia. As a neophyte hunter, I am very grateful to PSE and to Len for making available this crossbow. This is my first season hunting. Couldn't be happier with the results and with the technology I leveraged to get them. Didn't need a blood trail on any of the three deer I shot. The two does dropped in place. The buck ran about 30 yards and fell over.
Upon seeing a picture of this buck, someone asked me if I used a bow or a rifle. I replied, "a little of both."
This is Wade (my son),he is 12 and killed this 411 bull with his Tac 15i this fall in steamboat CO at 35 yards. It was a double lung complete pass trough, with a rage titanium broad head. We were not impressed with the broad head as one side of the blades was completely torn off BEFORE exiting! and the other side was wrapped around the titanium body. The entrance cut was nice and wide but the exit cut about the size of the arrow shaft. We will be switching to Phat Heads. The bull ran about 50 yards and that was it, great crossbow poor broad heads.
