I only made one just to see how they work
but I am ordering more lights so I will show them after I made the others
they are a really tight fit in the arrow so I don't want to pull it out till it dies
There are youtube vids on how to make them
it takes a lot longer to tell how to make them then it does to make them [YOUTUBE]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMqLT-4ezzk[/YOUTUBE]

Default Suggest illuminated ends for crossbow bolts

Hello fellow deer hunters,

Although I am an older man, I am just getting into crossbow hunting. I bought an Excalibur Vixen a few years back and looking forward to getting into the woods this fall.
Can anyone recommend a good illuminated end for my crossbow bolts? I can see myself losing a bunch of them being a newby and they are not cheap.
Any advice you are willing to offer on illuminated ends or crossbow hunting in general would be greatly appreciated.

PA,
Welcome and welcome to extending your hunting season. I like the luminocks,
shoot them out of a Stryker 380 and they have always illuminated.
They are a bit of a pain when they are new because I have to use my leatherman to turn them off till they get broken in, but they seem to work for me,
Old you are probably younger than me but the deer still get shot, they don't really care how old you are!!!

Welcome to DHC I love the Nockturnals for compound not sure about crossbow bolts but if you are in the market I would personally stick with them or the luminocks
I have not had time to make anymore of my own yet but they are quick & easy to make just need nocks, thill battery lights (for lighted fishing bobbers) a knife & super glue

I just picked up three of the Burt Coyote Lumenok bolts to try. If I like how they fly then I get three more to start the season. They are pricy though. I will be shooting this weekend to dial things in.

HM,
they will make the tail just a tad heavier but you may not even notice it. Let us know how you make out.

ok, thanks for the tip, I post results from shooting. What's interesting is they have Excalibur name on the shaft.
