Arrow Choice

I am sure this has been discussed before but I am wondering what others consider the top arrow out there for deer hunting.

Carbon Express with the weight forward technology. Really tough shafts and broadheads fly beter with them than anything else I've ever shot.

Easton Axis, Carbon Express Maxima, Gold Tip...all are good hunting arrows and so it comes down to personal preference. If you are looking for a cheaper arrow with high quality, check out the Beaman ICS hunter with ViBrake.

Easton ACC's are the ticket for me...best shooting arrow I've ever shot in 25 years! Although I will say that I shot GoldTips for a few years and they were the toughest, durable arrow I've used. I could hit almost anything with them with (usually) not even as much as a scratch! For what it's worth!

I've always used the GoldTip XT Hunter 5575s. A good price and as has been said already, they are tough and really take the abuse. I've seen too many pictures of a carbon arrow splintered in peoples hands and a tough carbon arrow means alot to me.

I think Gold Tip, Easton, CE, etc all make good arrows as long as you match the arrow to your bow and drawlength etc. I would just avoid going to a walmart or the like and grabbing a handful of whatever they have on their shelf. I saw one gut walk out of there one night with a handful of various lengths and sizes as well as colors and he was talking about going huntign that upcoming weekend confused.gif

beman with the vi-brake, the vi-brake makes a noticeable silence in the arrow flight, and some in the bow.

Carbon Express Aramid KV's.

You'll ask 10 people this question and get 10 different answers... all comes down to personal preference. Easton/Beman, Gold Tip, Carbon Express, & others all make great shafts. Pick one you like and have confidence in it.

Easton axis full metal jacket is my arrow. carbon core wrapped in aluminum. yes, a bit heavy, but only 11.1 gpi. very strong though, and they fly nice too. have hit the rebar in 3d targets before. mushroomed my field points, never ruined an arrow!

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
