Re: Eva Shockey

I have had the pleasure to meet Jim and Eva several times at the SHOT show the last few years. They are both great people along with all of Jim's crew. I am doing a moose and grizzly hunt with Rogue River in 2022 and Jim spent close to 30 minutes talking to me about my hunt last year at SHOT. He is ...

Thunderhead 'O' Rings

Last year I purchased some 85 grain Thunderheads and was very pleased that they hit the same holes as my field points and they seem very very sharp. My question is why do they have 'O' rings and what is the purpose of the 'O' rings? If someone can shed some light on this it would be appreciated? I h...

Calculating FPS

Is there a formula or rule of thumb to use when trying to calculate FPS for different arrow weights. So for instance if my Bulldog 440 shoots a 350 grain arrow at 440 feet per second how can I estimate how fast it should shoot a 390 grain arrow?

The Arizona EZ Fletch Bolt is the best thing to use for Blazer vanes. It's a true helical fletching

Re: BEST WESTERN STATES FOR PUBLIC LAND HUNTING FOR RESIDENTS

Thanks AJ this is very helpful information. It sound like you have done this before once or twice :) I have a friend who owns a fairly sizable piece of property in Wyoming near Medicine Bow so I might reach out to him to see what the deal is for non resident. I have been their to shoot prairie dogs ...

Re: BEST WESTERN STATES FOR PUBLIC LAND HUNTING FOR RESIDENTS

Elk and either Mule deer or Whitetail.

New Mexico seems interesting as they have tons of public land, don't have a preference point system and they make sure 84% of tags go to residents so I am thinking it would be a little easier to draw a tag. They also have pronghorn which is of interest.

BEST WESTERN STATES FOR PUBLIC LAND HUNTING FOR RESIDENTS

I have been living in the Northeast all my life and am getting frustrated with the hunting opportunities. I hunt whitetails but it's all ambush hunting from treestands and I would enjoy spot and stalk hunting much better. Starting to think it may be time to move to a different part of the country so...

Re: FOC Question

Thanks Don,

This calculator is very helpful. The longer shaft reduces FOC but only by a very small amount. The weight of the front insert and broadhead are what influence the FOC to a very high degree.

FOC Question

If all arrow components are identical and the only difference is the length of the shaft will a longer shaft produce a higher FOC or a lower FOC?

Re: Bulldog 440

Don,

Are you using the loner arrow for flight stability and accuracy or mostly for the additional weight?

And I would add that they should change the parallax setting from 75 yards to 40 yards

Re: crossbow scopes

I too have been looking to see what is available for crossbow scope upgrades and was surprised to see how little is available. The Vortex Crossfire II looks interesting but the reticle seems a bit busy for me and I like plain and simple for reticles. Also it is an illuminated reticle which in itself...
