Targets and arrows

I see a lot of posts about targets and such. Whichever broadhead target you decide to shoot, put some arrow lube on the front 1/3 of your arrows. It makes it so much easier to pull those short crossbow arrows from the targets. Number one thing I hear from crossbow folks and broadhead targets is how hard arrow removal is.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

OR, switch to traditional gear and use hay bales!

Never used the lube on bolts, I heard that they are easier to pull. But I always wondered if it would also cause the bolts to penetrate deeper. I do hang my target so it can swing when hit, figuring that it may lower the penetration.

Dish soap on a rag works also.
