I've never tried the feathers ... have to give them a shot. Thanks again for your advise.
I thought I would add a comment just to clear the poundage issue up.
After tracking in the rain and thick brush I found that if I placed the arrow in the shoulder
instead of behind it the were not able to go more than 15 or 20 feet because with there front
legs shot out from under them they could not run.
But in order to take this kind of shot requires tough broad heads around 1 and 1/4 dia. heavy
shafts 600+grs and heavy bow weights 90 lbs+ in order to get complete pass thoughts
I have killed several hundred deer using 70lbs but they were shot behind the shoulder and
required some tracking. and if it started to rain things get a little intense.
90 lbs is not nessary to kill deer but it helps when the weather goes bad witch is often where
I live and hunt. (Avg. rainfall is 54" per year ).
PS: When hunting dangerous game in some parts of Africa 1000 grain arrows and 100lb min draw
weights are required.
