Then you're ready to rumble! Keep it at least one inch from where the riser meets the rail.

Go to page 2 scroll thru the 3rd thread, pic there. Why would you need a pic if you got the two lines? Put your serving touching the high mark, check sights and go gig a gagger. That serving location is called 1 1/8" btw.

I used to hunt squirrels with my compound. Blunts will shoot through rabbits but they just knock squirrels out of the tree, then they run off. Shot one with a target point once and the squirrel ran off with the arrow in it. Get the points with the little springs that stick out and they will work fine. Also, I used arrows called "flu-flus". They are a fluffy feather type fletching that catches the air in case you miss, don't know if they will work in a crossbow. You will have better luck with fox squirrels if they are in your area since they do not tend to be as wild. The squirrels are on the ground here a lot this time of year. If you shoot at one on the ground with those spring wire heads and miss, the arrows will fly up, otherwise they bury under the leaves. I have a hard enough time shooting them with a .22. I consistently hit about 50% in the head.
