Shooting through Camo Window

When hunting from a blind do I need to sight in my crossbow for shooting through a mesh window or just the regular way?

I would because the mesh will slow down the arrow.It might also cause erratic flight because the arrow will be at some type of angle going through the mesh.

Usually fixed blade broadheads will not be affected much by shoot through mesh at close ranges. If you plan to shoot past 20 yards, I will take a few test shots. I would not recommend shooting mechanicals through mesh.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I would not do it as the fletching will exit the hole last and I think it will change the poi.
