Sighting in Broadheads

5 posts in this topic

I'm behind this year due to lack of time. Anyways I have my bow dialed in with field tips, and tonight I shot my broadheads, and holy cow was the thing off! Last year I used the same broadheads/arrows bow everything. I didn't have to adjust much of anything last year. Today I was way way left of the target. My up and down were right in line with the target. What are some things that could be going wrong? Thanks for any advice confused.gif

Left to right deflection can be from arrow contact, hand torque, maybe the sight is tweaked. Did you switch back to FT's after the bad BH shots to see if everything is still aligned? I would double check that first to make sure you didn't knock something out of whack that would effect all arrows.

I would echo what powerstroke said. I know when I start getting lazy with my front hand my arrows will start to move to the left.

I thought I was doing the same as you when practicing a few weeks ago.

Problem ended up being between my ears...

After going back to field points and making good shots out to 40 yards, I went back to broadheads and I was dead on.

It was just target panic, just having the real thing on the end of my arrows I was getting excited for the upcoming season.

I'm with Power on this one... check the easy stuff first... Grip torque is the culprit many times.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
