Ace of Spades (Buck Shots)

Postby Alabowhunter » Fri Aug 07, 2009 5:25 am

Does this picture bother anyone else?  The archer has three different kinds of arrows. And 4 in. feathers on 1 or 2. 4 in. vanes on another and 2 in. vanes on another.

not really....who knows why he has it that way...could be hunting arrows with stump shooting arrows mixed in and maybe a practice one or two.  Could be he has all the arrows he owns in one quiver?  I used to do that when I started out.....Whatever the reason, one of them worked.
It matters not the weapon nor its caliber, rather the caliber of the one who wields it.

I like having a couple of old junk arrows along to shoot at squirrels

Yea, I like to keep a junk arrow and if I shoot a deer, I shoot the junk arrow at the same spot. This has helped me find the exact location on the ground, especially if there is no pass through. I have shot deer in the edge of fields and once you get down out of the tree stand things can look different. Just find your practice arrow and away you go.

This is a great idea! I never even gave this a thought....can't tell you how many times coming down from the tree my orientation was off. Thanks for the tip!
