Sighting in Broadheads

Recommended Posts

Marshall1117

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

Powerstroke

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’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
