Default Lumenok problem/question???? Please help

I was doing some small game hunting the night before last at my buddys ranch. we drive around in a mule and spotlight stuff to shoot.I saw a cottontail so i hopped out while my buddy had the light on it and i let one fly i shot about an inch over the rabbit..dang[:@] but it was a good shot i think at 30 yards for my first ever shot at a real animal. but anyways my lumenok was lit until it reached the cactus residing behind the rabbot. luckily i walked rifght to it only using my cell phone as a light. I dont know if the impact pushed it out or what. do i need to have sitting a lil bit off the arrow when i nock it or does it need to ne pushed all the way in??? Please help it would be much appreciated. i dont want to shoot a buck at night and then try to find my arrow as a sign of a hit and not be able to find it. please tell me what i am doing wrong and what i can do to fix it. im pretty new to bowhunting and lumenoks lol. all comments are appreciated.


Thanks
Colten

First off, it's illegal to shoot deer at nightSecondly, you want the nock just backed out enough that it's NOT lit up before you shoot, once you let go of your release the bow string will push the nock against your arrow creating the contact needed to activate it. Also, I assume you will be deer hunting from a elevated platform of some kind? Therefore if you blow through a deer the angle from shooting out of a platform will cause your arrow to stick into the ground, versus "skipping" when shooting off the ground, making it easier to find your arrow. Good luck.

Try shooting the new tracer nocks... i shoot them and i really like them... They always light up. It uses a magnet that sits next to your rest and the magnet turns on the nock. After 10 seconds the nock starts blinking. You don't have to worry about contact points with the tracer nock.
