I had a battery explode in one of my Lumeknocks a few years ago, the other 2 in the package didn't work. I refuse to waste my time/money on them anymore. I just use Easton super knocks. If I can't find my arrow at night then I wait till the next morning unless the sign is stupendous.

Try to keep up Zap... or just read the prior posts.

Im "pretty sure" people drive drunk, but "the facts" remain the same in that the LAW doesnt allow it.



I thought it was a pretty well known fact that alot of deer that are entered in P&Y have been shot with lighted nocks and or sight lights on bows.

The facts are that there may be alot of animals entered that were killed in a manner that would not allow entry.

how do you use "may be" and "facts" in the same sentence?

No zap, the facts are PY doesnt allow it. This is NOT debateable.

But I will see you next hunting season.

How does py know what you have on your arrows? Seems like it would be easy to put standard knocks on afterwards. PY isnt sitting there watching over everyone while they hunt so you know there are illegal entries.

But for those not filming are they worth the trouble?


I think they are...I have used a few different kinds on and off, but have never shot a deer with them. The lumenocks only worked half the time, and the tracers were a pain to activate and deactivate everytime. Plus I thought the magnet affected arrow flight. I bought some noctunals because they seem to be the most consistent, I think when shooting through groundblind screen, they would be especially helpful.

Ive only shot one with a lighted nock, a pass through. It shattered coming out the other side. Rendering what I wanted it for useless. Good thing it was a blood bath.

It was a nocturnal, I contacted nocturnal and they asked me to send it, a week later a new one was in the mailbox, price of a stamp.

I support what P&Y stands for and what they do, however, paying to have my name in a book is something I refuse to do.

Nockturnal worked well for me. No filming for me but I found my arrow instantly this year and that can tell you right away what kind of blood your dealing with.

They(P&Y) don't know. YOU sign an afividavit, so there is a legal document you have to be willing to lie on.

When I can't see my stuff good enough to shoot, it's time to leave the woods. PLUS hunting dosen't go till you can't see, it's usually 1/2 hr after sunset.
A buck will see you three times, and hear you twice, but he's only gonna smell you once.

Tried Lumenocks had a problem with them not holding on the string when nocking an arrow.They would fall off the string.The string had some wear but had no issues with any other normal nocks.Anyone else have this issue?
