araz2114 Nice setup. Actually the method AEH used is not difficult. I don't use shrinkwrap but use epoxy and do stuff a little different however I've built a dozen or more and have found them simple, quick and easy to build.

Just want to add a note here, be CAREFULL not to drill too big I lost a shot at a 150+ 10point last year because my nock exploded when I released, all I seen was that little battery light fly up up in front of my face, needless to say I have given up on this option, it may work 99 out of 100 but I lost out on a 15 yd shot because of it.

Just My 2 cents

Hey 79

 

Thanks for the Heads up. I know that shot made you sick. Opportunities like that are rare! How many lbs were you pulling on your bow? Was your bow a cross bow or compound? I will insure I use plenty of epoxy to beef things up and test fire it many times prior to seasons opening.

 

It made me sick reading your post. I have only had 2 oppertunites like that in my lifetime. I scored once. I'm 50 now! Dont have many like that left. I figure 2 more on the outside odds. Yep I just flat out missed the first one! BIG BUCK FEAVER. I was 33 at the time and had just taken up bow hunting 3 years prior. I even had a few under my belt but nothing like what I was looking at @ 30 yards. I have to admit I was shaking a little to much!

Illegal to use in PA. Others might want to double check their regs too.

 

 

I know this is an old post but Lighted nocks are not Illegal in the State of PA. Any type of lighting that cast a beam onto the animal like a laser that you can put on a gun is Illegal. A lighted nock does not cast a beam onto the animal. It shows you where your shot is on impacted in low light time of the day.

 

I have been using lighted nocks for a few years now and even been checked G C and have not had any trouble with them.

 

On another note. I use to use the Burt Lomiunocks till I noticed that the wires were cracking my carbon arrows. Since then I started making my own. Since I shoot FOBs I make my lighted nocks so the nock and the FOB pops off on the pass through.
