Re: Max range would you say is far enough?

I apologize for not answering the question. I believe a deer with its head already down, if it’s tail is down and totally relaxed, is in a relaxed mode. Those matriarch does are so alert! And can be mean, like the dominate hummingbird at a feeder. Arrow noise - I stand behind a tree, building, whate...

Re: Max range would you say is far enough?

This is a test and comments from a couple of years back with one of my M405s. 20" ST 418.6g M405 1yd 369'/sec . 127ft-lbs. 20yd 360'/sec 120. 40yd 354'/sec 117. 60yd 337'/sec 106. 80yd 325'/sec 98. 100yd 311'/sec 90. So from 20 yards to 100 yards only 58'/sec (16%) was lost while only 30ft-lbs (25% ...

Re: Max range would you say is far enough?

I’ve been reluctant to respond to this or any other thread concerning maximum “ethical” range. There are so many convictions out there that are formed from incorrect suppositions such as not enough energy remaining at such and such range, or the deer could die from old age and be lying on the ground...

The aluminum alloy. The 78 was a little tougher. Size/fit of components will be the same.

I’m not surprised. I’ve followed your posts/threads since you started. Greatness isn’t measured by years.

Re: CR 2032 battery drain in X bow scopes.

I have never had an issue with any bein drained Nor have I. When I used Hawke scopes, and still use the TR530IL on a B/U cbow, I found illumination virtually worthless as they were too bright in low light conditions. Only when I eventually used higher level scopes starting with WCE scopes, then L V...

Just like having shot lower poundage vertical bows would have been easier on many former vbow shooters, using a crank will likely be easier on our delicate backs.

Re: Shooting The Bulldog 440

Congratulations on you xbow selection! Contrast against the BD400? Can you see a difference in the limbs? If you ever get really bored, I think it would be interesting to swap limbs and chronograph the before and after differences. I understand that the new limbs are much faster.

Mark, give your boy a hug and a kiss and let him be his own man. It's important that a man knows that he is where he is because he put himself there!

Re: High FOC, high momentum

I tested two equal weight arrows for Jerry. One had a 190 insert and a 26g nock. The other was reversed. The arrows weighed the same but one had a -5 foc and the other had appx 30. I shot the high foc arrow to 80 yards, the low foc only to 60 yards. Even at 60 yards, the center of the impacts were v...

Joe, you’re not old. Everyone should use a crank well before they have to. That way they won’t have to nearly as soon.
