    Question Carbon Arrows & Cold Temperature

    I was wondering about carbon arrows and cold temps (-10 or -15 degrees) any thoughts would be appreciated, I heard from a "buddy" they were not good below zero. I am still new to bow hunting and would appreciate any advice.

    Default Hmmm....

    Never heard of that before. I've been shooting carbons for years and have never had a problem shooting at temperatures down to about -20 or so. Lots of good brands out there to choose from as well.

    I have not had any probelms with the Carbon's or Aluminum arrows. I have shot both; some in IN, SD, CO and now AK. All have been good. Hope this helps.

    Talking Yes problems

    Yes I have a problem with my carbons in the winter. I can't find enough animals to stick them into to warm them up. Maybe next weekend I can warm one up in a goat.
