Fletching Bolts Questions

Seeing as I am stuck home for the next period of time I am going to take advantage and build some bolts for the fall. I was wondering what people find to be the best adhesive for fletching and do you also use an adhesion promoter to go along with the adhesive? I will be fletching Blazer vanes onto c...

Hunting In The Rain

I was hunting in a light rain this morning and realized that I have never shot my crossbow in the rain so I was wondering how having wet bolts or water droplets on my rail could affect my shot? At a distance of 30/40 yards would wetness on the bolts and rail impact how the bolt would fly and potenti...

Re: Should I doctor Scrapes

The Active Scrape looks pretty interesting. I may give it a try.

Has anybody tried the Code Blue Grave Digger which is scented dirt you mix right into the scrape?

Longbow,

Just notice your comments above the image.

What king of doe pee have you found success with? Looks like the Code Blue and Tinks 69 are popular?

Re: Should I doctor Scrapes

Longbow Joe,

That's a big scrape!

Did it start off as a mock scrape or natural made by a buck? Are you putting anting into it?

Should I doctor Scrapes

So I speed scouted my stands this weekend and there is a big scrape on a small beech tree 20 yards right in one of my shooting lanes and has a licking branch hanging down. I have some friends who are telling me I should be putting different doe P scents in the scrape to keep the buck coming back. I ...

Re: BOLTS CHANGING TRAJECTORY

Check your trigonometry. :eusa-popcorn: I triple checked the math and it is dead nuts. Even laid it out in SolidWorks. A right triangle with a height of 20 feet and a base that is 57 feet (19 yards) will have an angle of 19.335 degrees. With this angle and a deer that is 18.00 inches thick the exit...

Blackout Speed Trap

I was at Cabela's yesterday and saw the Blackout Speed Trap. I think this is a fairly new target as it is not on Cabela's web site yet. It's 18.0 x 18.0 in size and is rated for field points and broadheads up to 540 fps. Shooting a Bulldog 440 my bolts bury pretty deep into the Rinehart target so th...

Removing Decals From Bolts

I have read on the forum that you can remove the decals on bolts with acetone. Can this be accomplished with a simple wipe down or do you need to soak them for a period of time?


Thanks

Re: Slick Trick Questions

Deerstalker,

What kind of fletching are you using and is it off-set or helical?
