I go with orange and white, not sure if this is good or not, just happen to be on the shafts I bought.

I have been looking for the Ted Nugent white camo shafts, but have had no luck in carbon with the size I shoot.

Anybody know where I can find some of them?

I use a very dull black and green to eliminate any glare from my arrows. I also use luminocks so I can find them when I shoot. They are easy to find with the lighted nocks but a little spendy. They are cheaper than losing arrows with broadheads.

I like white on two, makes finding all my arrows that don't go where I want them to easier.

I have a couple of different colors, I have 4" wraps and then 2 flo green and one white blazer vanes on 1/2 dozen and then I have 4" yellow wraps and 2 yellow and one Flo green on the other half. They both stand out awesome.

If you want the easiest to find, White... 3 whites during much of the hunting season for me. Once it snows I will go to 3 chartruce... or something like that...

When shooting 3D tournaments... Camo.. I dont want anybody to be able to aim at my arrow in the 10 ring.. LOL

On my Full Metal Jackets I went with 2" Blazers in:

1-Red

1-White

1-Blue

Since I shoot a drop away rest, I don't have to worry about the cock feather...

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.

      I dont think you will have trouble. Just be careful. There are a million trucks driving all over the place now

      Big Pine as of 1/15 had 16" of ice on the north side.  Only drilled 5 holes and all were around 16" according to my ice scoop.  Just placed fish house out there for the nephew and called it good.  Sorry no fishing report.
