Arrow weight for hunting hogs, deer and bear

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

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

deer or Hog cart.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

here are a few pictures of my deer/hog cart. I was getting to old to enjoy draging them out by myself. So here is what i did.

I took a regular stud 2×4 and cut it in half. then round one end of each for my hands to fit. then i had an old wheel barrow that was broken and rusted out, but the wheel was still good.

I then bolted that wheel to the 2×4 sides and but a few braces to keep them the correct distance apart.

Last i added a small shelf to keep the deer or hog off the wheel and to help support the weight.

I spent total of about an hour on it, and all scrap lumber and stuff i had around the house.

got to use it last Saturday night on a yearling doe. i have to say it was easier, just loaded and walked out at a good pass.

one of those places loaded with deer but off limits to hunters

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

We have more than a few round here, one always comes to mind because we have a family "friend" who works there. One of the reasons "friend" is in quotes is because the guy doesn’t care for me as a hunter, being a stinker I always ask about hunting there with a gleam in my eye when ever we get together and he bristles up. Probably shouldn’t antagonize him, but I consider it harmless fun.

Short story over…wanted to go out in the morning but couldn’t seem to get my butt out of bed so I didn’t, around noon I get a call from the local PD, deer hit do I want it. Looky looky it’s from the area off limits. I get there the LEO tells me the story of how it had a busted leg and he had to shoot it, good news, the thing wasn’t all tore up and not dead more than 15 minutes.

It was a doe……………………… …………………250 pounds of doe. :) Biggest doe I’ve ever seen. Looking forward to a chin wag with the "friend" from Whales. :)

Getting her done in a place that’s off limits!
More than one way to drag a deer out of places like that. :)

First deer

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Well after picking up a recurve two years ago I got my first one tonight. It was a doe.

The shot was about 15 yards, slightly quartering away from 12′ up. The shot looked and felt good but when i found my arrow (saw it break off) it was broken at an inch above the broadhead; not exactly encouraging.

I waited a couple hours and my father-in-law and i picked up the trail where I last saw her. We found her in about 15-20 minutes. She hadn’t gone any further that I saw. The shot went through the right side a few inches above the elbow and lodged in the far shoulder.

I will load a picture when i can.

Gear: 45# Carsage drawn to 30", 500 VAP arrows tipped with Muzzy 3-blade 125s.

Primos Deer in a Can

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I seem to buying one every season is there a proper way to store from one season to the next. The diaphram in the inside seems to get stuck and bind up every season this makes my 3rd one in 3years. Is it normal to get a new one each season?

Havent got a deer yet

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

So I hunt on a great property. Theres been 10-12 deer shot on this land in the last month. None of which are mine. All together I’ve put in a solid 250-275 hours in the stand/blind. Ive been out every season, archery, muzzleloader and a short shotgun. For some reason I just cant bag a deer. Not even does. During the whole archery season I had deer coming out around 70 yards, a shot i know i can make with the muzzleloader or 12 guage. And when those seasons came they moved out to like 300. I just dont get why i havent gotten one yet when so many deer have been killed by others. Does anyone have any advice? Different tactics? Anything? I really would like to shoot one because this is getting very discouraging. Btw i use dead down wind and use an acorn cover scent. Being smelled or seen isnt an issue. I dont know what it is

Deer stank

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

So I shot a nice doe last night in the rain, it was a marginal hit I got one lung, the liver, and hooked the guts. We couldn’t find any blood last night, I only waited about ten minutes before I climbed down to check my arrow. When I got to the arrow all the blood was almost washed off it already. With the rain and darkness coming quickly I started looking for her. There wasn’t a speck of blood to be found anywhere. I made a phone call and had my girlfriend/hunting partner come with my lab hoping he would pick up some kinda sent. After 2 hours of looking in the pouring rain we quit for the night. It was about 47 degrees most the night and when I got at 7 a.m. the cold front started to push in and it is now down to 40. After another hour of looking this morning I found her piled up about 300 yards from where I shot her (more proof of how tough these animals are). I shot the original 2 inch rage and had a solid pass through. There is a nice hole in her and she did not bleed a drop, all the blood was pooled up inside here still. I not bashing the rage that’s for sure I’ve had very good luck with them she was just one tough deer. I gutted her out and it was kinda stinky but you can tell the tender loins are spoiled. I haven’t started to cut her up yet, I hosed her out and got her hanging now, but she still stinks pretty bad. So I was curious to see what other ppls experience is with this is the rest of the meat going to be bad or is it just the inside where the nasty stuff was? The stomach wasn’t busted too bad and it didn’t look real nasty. Its now down to about 35 degrees out and sounds like the temp is going to keep dropping. I am going to get her cut up today but just wanted to see what you all think about my situation and hopefully we can all lean a little something. Its been a very tough year for me and is doesn’t seem to be getting any better. :p Hopefully this will change with the rut about to hit full swing. I saw 6 does/fawns last night with no bucks in waushara county WI. Thanks

Another deer with my recurve

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Had some issues with my longbow limbs on my Delta riser, so I slapped the recurve limbs on and have been hunting with them the past couple weeks since I was too busy with orders to build myself a new set. Last Friday, I got a shot on a fat doe, but when I came to draw I froze up just like I had during IBO, unable to acutally aim into the vitals. It was awful. The next day I went to targets hard, and after re-tuning my bow with a set of 175 gr Tiger Sharks, I went hunting. Monday was the first night in stand, and I managed to bag my first two squirrels of the season. Last night, this young one came by at at 10 yards, and with only a week or so left of season I decided to put some much, much needed meat in the freezer. I started to have the tp freezing, but focused on the spot and my shot sequence. Hit him tight to the shoulder, but had short drawn pretty badly when the tp hit so no pass through. The Tiger Shark went through both lungs and poked out the far leg, which should be a testament more to it’s penetrating capabilities and forgiveness than to my shooting. The deer ducked under a fallen log breaking the arrow but made it only 12 steps before falling over for good. It only took maybe two seconds from when I shot to when it expired, for which I am incredibly grateful.

Friday was the first time I had TP issues when presented with a shot on an animal, and it was one of the worst feelings I’d ever had. Putting this one down so quickly however was truly a blessing. May not be a trophy to a lot of people, but I felt like I was walking on clouds.

New 66" Delta, 54# at 30", full length 300 spine Beman ICS Bowhunter carbon with 175 gr Simmons Tiger Shark.
