Re: Arrows... What are you shooting?

TIMBER 338

There is a lot of arrows that will shoot out of your bow. Thats not the problem. When you have an archer shooting a full sized arrow, then the selection narrows considerably. Your perseverance has paid dividends.

If you go to your friendly archery shop maybe they will let you shoot an
arrow or two through their chonagraph to get feet per second measure.
But, that don't mean squat at daylight with a 6 point wall hanger stareing
you down at 20 yards.

GOOD LUCK.

Practice, Practice and Practice.

I took a step back and looked at how I hunt, and applied my focus to simply what shot best out of my bow. That whole process is what brought me to the dangerous game arrow. Velocity plays a very small factor for me.

And my own personal philosophy of archery hunting is very different than rifle hunting as I think the challenge of archery hunting is getting as close as possible. I know folks here will disagree being a long range forum, I don't want to start an argument... If my hunting style required longer shots I would use a different arrow!

But I think there are similarities to the level of difficulty associated with a long-range rifle shot compared to getting very close to an animal for a close-range bow shot.

Both disciplines are unique. That why I choose to do both. Being retired
gives me the time and opportunity to practice and learn. I just started in the
Long Distance Shooting Discipline. I spent the best part of 8 months just
picking out a rifle.

You have mastered the bigest problem in archery, what is best for you.
again, good Luck.

Re: Arrows... What are you shooting?

Great ! sounds like an arrow that will do the job.
question, what is the draw weight?
and do you draw the bow without going
through any contortions? ie., pointing the bow
at the sky when drawing.

It's amazing the acrobatics some archers go
through to get the cams to break over.

Are you shooting the AC or all carbon version. How do you like them so far? There aren't a whole lot of guys shooting these yet.
