Arrow setup and suggestion?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hello guys.

I have a Bear Grizzly recurve at 50 lbs. My draw is probably 26.5 to 27 inches.

My question is, what sort of setup should I be looking in a hunting arrow?

Arrow length?

Insert weight?

GPI?

Thanks in advance.

Hunting arrow weight

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hello all! New to the forum and just wanted to bring up a subject that has long been debated. First off let me say with no conciet or ego implied at all that I have been a bowhunter for 30 plus years and like many here I have a deep respect for the beautiful animals that I have the privallige of hunting.
I shoot fast bows and light arrows and have for many years. I shoot 65 lbs and 29" draw and my arrows are 27" @ 364 grains moving a respectable 325fps. Now I here alot of hunters tell me how my arrows are too light and wont have enough ke down range to take large game. Well I personally believe that old way of thinking we need 420+ grain arrows is outdated with todays bows. I blow through moose at 70 yards and devistate shoulder blades on elk and deer if i hit them blowing clean through 98% of the time. I shot a deer this season at 50 yards and had it spin slightly and litteraly blew through both shoulder blades and a set of ribs with a clean pass through. Just sharing my experience here and certainly not knocking anyones set up or opinion. Just wonder why so many hunters feel they need to shoot heavy arrows and believe lighter arrows wont penetrate and keep on going? Just food for thought! Glad to be part of the forum! Have a great night all!!

Veritas Dowel Cutter to make wooden arrow shafts

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I’ve seen a lot of video’s on Youtube of people using a $ 40 Veritas 3/8ths dowel cutter.

link to product: http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/pag…180,42288&ap=1

The problem I have with this is that all the field points i’ve found are always in traditional arrow sizes like 5/16, 9/32, and 11/32. So I’m wondering what these people are doing for the tips of the arrows (they never show past the cutting of the shaft).

The same company offers arrow making inserts that come in the traditional sizes but then your looking at a minimum of $ 240

Could 3/8ths shafts work for making completed arrows? If so where can you get the field points that fit 3/8ths?

hunting arrow weight ?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I just bought a 2013 Elite Hunter. It maxes at 63 pounds and I have a 28.5" draw. I am not a speed freak but would like to get around 275fps with a 100 grain head. I am shooting Easton FMJ 411grains and charts say I would get around 250fps with them.

What is a good hunting arrow that will weigh in around 350grains with the head and handle 62lb draw weight.

Thanks

Arrow weight for hunting hogs, deer and bear

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hey Guys I’m looking for advice on setting up arrows for hunting hogs, deer and black bear. I’m shooting a Bear Super Kodiak 50 lb. My draw length is 28 inches. My current arrows are Victory Vforce 500, 4 inch feathers with brass inserts and 125gr points. Total arrow weight is 400 grains. They shoot / fly great, If I do my part I can keep my groups the size of a pie pan at 30 yards.

I’ve been doing a lot of research and reading Dr. Ed Ashbys recommendations on total arrow weight and FOC. I believe I should have a total arrow weight of 500 grains or more. I need advice on arrows, spine weight, broadheads and total arrow weight. Also should I use 4 or 5 inch feathers?

Thank you for any advice with my endeavor

Patrick

Arrow advice please…

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi all-

I’m new to archerytalk.com, but not new to archery. I’m looking for advice on new arrows. I currently shoot the ACC 3-60. I have nothing to complain about with these arrows, other than the possible bending or denting. Every time I decide I want to go full carbon, I end up with more ACC shafts because that’s what I’m comfortable with. I mainly bow hunt, but shoot two to three 3D shoots a year, non competitive. My hunting arrow set up weighs in at 416 grains and I’m pushing them off the bow at 294 fps @ 29.5 dl and 69#s. I’m not necessarily looking to go lighter or gain speed, I just have no idea what arrows to even consider. These arrows hit game pretty dang hard, I think that’s the main reason I don’t switch.

So I guess what I’m looking for is a dual purpose arrow to hunt or shoot 3D with. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for any help and taking the time to read my post!

Where do orient the “spine” of your arrow when fletching?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Let me start by saying I’m still green at arrow tuning and am probably wrong on lots of this but seems logical to me. I’m getting ready to do my first refletch of some arrows I’ve had around for a while. I made a spine tester to find the "spine" or should I say the stiffest side of the arrow, where the seam is located. I know these are 300 spine arrows and I’m cool if they are in the area of that number. My goal is to orient my nocks to the "spine" of each arrow so I get the same flight out of them.

When I nock tuned these arrows when they were factory fletched the spines and the fletchings had random orientation, so on this batch I’m getting everything aligned.
Amazing how I could see those factory arrows change flight as I spun the nocks till I found the spine. Making the spine tester made this much faster.

I have be putting the spine/seam side towards the shelf (left, away from the riser on right handed bow) and getting straight flight and tight groups. One of my questions is am I doing this right? I was planning on putting my cock vain the same side as the spine, instead of on top. Since I use a drop-away it shouldn’t matter should it?

So am going about this correctly? Does it matter what side the spine is oriented as long as they are the same and my sights are adjusted for said settings?

Thanks,
Hawk

How to adjust my arrow nocks?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Alright I am getting into archery. I have older arrows that I bought when I was younger. So I’m getting my bow setup for hunting season now. I noticed that for my prong style rest only one of the knocks lines up with odd color fletching, so that I can make it point down when nocked to the string. How can I adjust these knocks to match up correctly?
I’m attaching a picture of one of them.
