Read it again, in case of a wolf or a coyote.

I carry at least 3 most times 4, it's rare to need more than 1.

You must not have protected, harmful, unwanted, dangerous, predators where you live! You can give thanks for that!!
And not to worry, the field point is plenty lethal!. Just won't die in my field.. :mrgreen:

When I had my Q2 I only carried 3 arrows and I believed that was enough.
Now with the Grizzly I'll do the same .. 3. :)

Agreed.

Regardless of the animal there is no need to purposely inflict suffering. Shameful.

Yeah I don't think that's right either. Completely unnecessary. Ethical kill shot or don't shoot at all. I don't care what animal it is,
Get out & Enjoy.

I carry 4 for whitetail hunting.

I don't want to be judgmental, but I'll say that making an animal suffer as discussed above doesn't fit into my own personal ethics. I can only surmise that shooting wolves is illegal and BrotherRon doesn't want to get caught.

X2 No need to make ANYTHING suffer unnecessarily. Kill it quick or don't take the shot. IMHO
