    Lighted nocks

    I shot at 2 turkeys the evening before Thanksgiving. I found one arrow (cross bow) that evening. I found the other one yesterday morning still bright after 7 days.

    This morning I found one I shot on November 11 still faintly glowing as I was getting up a tree. That's 19 days! I recovered both $11 broad heads and one arrow is still usable.

    i never used them, but can see the utility. have spent much time looking for arrows that after passing thru an animal snaked their way under grass and leaves.

    I remember seeing some that even beeped after impact so you could find them easily in daylight. Even so arrow broadheads that had a opening broadhead that made sure your arrow wouldn't punch all the way through and gave a signal you could track with a receiver.

    They are a great all around addition to an arrow or bolt. Have saved me a many of otherwise lost arrow and hours of tracking over the years. I hunt late season many in the evenings due to time restrictions and they really help with knowing the shot placement and tracking gets real easy when you just watch the blue dot ( I think blue stands out the best) go 40 or so yards and then stop.
