True statement it’s yours and yours to do whatever you want with it, BUT I wouldn’t recommend it to others starting out or even veterans with Xbows for that matter because it is a unsafe act for sure. Not my opinion, but the experts (manufacturers) Plain and simple, waste one bolt and use it to fire into the dirt 5 foot away. Easy to pull out and safe. I used a bolt / field tip all year and bet it’s still straight as a arrowMoss said:
I did just that. Problem was that our camp in a flood plain with very soft soil. Buried that bolt in the bank I shot into and never saw the thing again. LOLdon't understand why one wouldn't just use a junk arrow and shoot it into the dirt.
