    Ethics inserts

    Every carbon arrow should get scuffed (inside or out), and wiped with acetone before gluing. I use regular craft hot melt on inserts.....epoxy on footings.

    Post season workout encouragement thread!

    Breakfast is the most important meal. My girlfriend has a Masters in nutrition. Two pints of water at wake up, then you can have coffee. The body needs protein out of the gate. I force myself to make two eggs, maple turkey bacon and half an avocado....with hot sauce of course. Takes less...

    Arrow rest?

    I prefer drop away rests. Switched to a biscuit, but unless you can hold on target (follow through) well past the arrow leaving the rest, your accuracy will suffer. The arrow stays engaged until the entire shaft passes through.....makes it super easy to ruin a shot in my experience. Not that...

    RIT dye. Make it whatever color you want.

    Suggested WMA to hunt hogs in South Carolina

    Anything close to the Savannah River watershed. I believe this is the original “location” of wild hogs. Estill, SC I’ve been to twice. There was a trad only camp there. It may be called “Wild Things” now.

    Ethics inserts

    Gold Tip = 2117 aluminum collar cut to whatever length needed. I typically will go with a 1/4”. Where it makes a difference.......helping to prevent an insert from busting through the shaft wall. Most specifically when bone is encountered and the buried shaft bounces off every tree in sight...

    Feather templates

    If there is interest, at one time I would grind raw feathers and send them back to the owners. I can at least get the quill down to a manageable size for trimming/cutting. I’ll try to format a pic of my grinder.

    Turkey Gun Build & Pattern

    2 3/4" lead 6's all day long out of a full or super full. No way I'm spending that $ on 5 shots. It's a 20#, slow moving bird......get it inside 40 and shoot it in the face.
