Silly question here, but Im a rookie...
Is it true that mechanicals such as the rage broadhead shoot just like a field point? I am just learning how to shoot a compound. After the bow was fitted, I took it home with field points. Before I left I was shooting dead accurate up to 30 yards. After I put regular broadheads on, I could NOT for the life of me hit the target.
Make sure the broadheads and field tips you are using are the same weight. Also, make sure you are using the same arrows, cut the same length, and what not (practice vs hunting arrows). I practice with the arrows I shoot in the field.
I was at a shop around my home this past week, and a guy was talking about how he shot at 4 deer and missed them all. He was frustrated. I could see in his bow case, he had carbon arrows for his practice arrows. Turns out, he was using aluminum arrows for his actual hunting arrows. He had different weight broadheads than field tips. It was a big mess, especially for the person in the bow shop helping him. Hopefully he got it all straightened out though. I didn't stick around for it.
Edit: Also, if you keep your shooting distance minimized, it will help with your accuracy. Sure, it looks great to be able to put your arrow in the bullseye at 50 yards, might even be able to pick up a girlfriend that way, but it's going to cause you more headaches, even trying to keep your bow tuned in. Keep your shooting distance short, and that keeps the list of issues you might come upon short as well.
