I haven't but I always shoot separate dots.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

When I got my Tenpoint, a word of advise from the bow shop, was to shoot separate spots or you would be ruining a lot of arrows.

Yeah I learned not to do that pretty quick right after I got my Wicked Ridge Warrior. If you aim at the same dot you are going to ruin a bunch of bolts.

Re: has anyone ever split a bolt?

I only shoot one at a time now. Mostly because I only shoot BroadHeads. I was ruining a bunch of bolts whether that was cutting a vein, breaking a nock or just messing up the shaft of the bolt. I also only shoot one at a time out of my compound for the same reason. Takes me longer but those bolts and arrows are very expensive. I will take the walk.

Re: has anyone ever split a bolt?

I did that a couple of years ago when my buddy bought his first crossbow. He brought it to my house to show me, and he let me shoot it. I Robin-Hooded one of his bolts, ruining two of three that he had. I felt bad, but also good...

Quarry mine, blessed am I
In the luck of the chase.

I shoot at an 18-1 cube and aim at a different bullseye every time. If I didn't I would go broke on new bolts
