    Talking Archery grouse

    Those little sprucies are getting costy when I have to shoot them out of the trees...losing my arrows. As far as I'm concerned that's what arrows are for. I took my son out of the first half of school the other day for a lesson in life/hunting. Father/son time is priceless to me, equally important as academia. We got out on the 4-wheeler and shot up some good meat. He's seven years old and can clean the breasts and remove the gizzard by himself. I'm proud of the little guy. I love AK. I'm hoping the snow holds off a bit longer.

    Thats awesome Cast! Are you guys using flu flus or regular vaned arrows? I have been thinking about picking up a light recurve so I can shoot those cheap wooden Wal-Mart arrows for birds. At about $8 apiece, my carbons stay on the shelf!!

    Smile bow and arrow

    I use carbon arrows for bunnies, sprucies, and ptarmies. I definately put on 100 gr judo's and am confident to 40 yards on small critters. I seldom lose my arrows, unless I shoot the birds out of the trees; unfortunately I cannot pass up a bird on a branch. I try and line up an evergreen or a birch behind the bird somewhere and usually get my arrows back. I surely don't resort to my Maxima 350's for birds/bunnies, but rather shoot Cabela's hunter carbons ($39.00/doz fletched -- last year, this year I think they're $49/doz). A dozen judo point arrows lasts me a good 2 years or so; and I sure don't let them collect dust. On the other end of my arrow I use blazers with brightly wrapped shafts/for easy finding. Hope this helps... Good luck.
