1st day of buck season, I had some does pass by out of range in the morning. Wasnt till 7 minutes before end of legal light, I encountered a buck. I was still hunting my way back to the car. I could see him clearly in the scope of the crossbow in an open field at about 40 yards. I had a hard time seeing the crosshairs on my multireticle scope. When I took the shot I missed cleanly. No thud & no blood anywhere after following his trail in the next field row. Very frustrating! Could I possibly use some fiber optics from a bow on the inside lip of the scope to increase visibility of the multi reticle? I could tell he was legal & could see his vitals clearly but the hash mark faded out in the lower light. It is a Parker Red Hot multi reticle scope that came mounted with my parker buckbuster 165 xbow. Its accurate at the range. I tested it out the next morning in my back yard and nearly robinhooded at 20 yrds. Just off center by an 1/8" and deflected into my block target..
