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.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
