Deer Hunting / Re: Arrow grain/material/suggestions for black-tail?
« Last post by dilleytech on Today at 09:39:24 PM »
At 55# you should be somewhere around a 400 spine arrow. Gold tips hunter xt are good arrows and very tough. With a slower 55# bow your better off adding more weight to the arrow for penetration. Might consider 150 gr fixed 2 blade heads with bleeders. I believe that would put you at roughly 420 gr or so..

If youíre going with a 420 arrow or even heavier I would probably stiffen the spine up a little. I donít know, Iím not an expect but thatís what I would think

Not at low poundage like 55#. But itís not the weight of the arrow that determines what spine to select. Itís point weight, arrow length, draw weight, and rated speed of bow. Without giving us that info itís kinda a guess but going up to a 340 would likely be over spined.

I'm gonna jump on the slug bandwagon. I've seen two deer shot within 40 yds with buckshot. Neither were recovered. One I think was a good shot. The other I know was a good shot. Saw hair flying at the point of impact.
Goodbye AR Builds, Hello H.R. 7115: Nationwide Proposed Ban in the Works

Complacency and an expectation someone else will handle the heavy lifting have brought us to this point. For all the claims of Second Amendment support in the gun community, far too few actually take active steps to maintain those rights, let alone further them.

Last week I-1639 passed in Washington State. Soon it might be the passage of H.R. 7115 in the US House, the so-called 3D Firearms Prohibition Act.

What is H.R. 7115, really? Iím glad you asked. The opening text is as follows, but you can find the full text here:

    To prohibit the sale, acquisition, distribution in commerce, or import into the United States of certain firearm receiver castings or blanks, assault weapon parts kits, and machinegun parts kits and the marketing or advertising of such castings or blanks and kits on any medium of electronic communications, to require homemade firearms to have serial numbers, and for other purposes.

And check out Section 3:

    SEC. 3. Prohibition of advertising do-it-yourself assault weapons.

    (a) In general.óIt shall be unlawful to market or advertise, on any medium of electronic communications, including over the Internet, for the sale of any of the following:

    (1) A firearm receiver casting or firearm receiver blank or unfinished handgun frame tható

    (A) at the point of sale does not meet the definition of a firearm in section 921(a) of title 18, United States Code; and

    (B) after purchase by a consumer, can be completed by the consumer to the point at which such casting or blank functions as a firearm frame or receiver for a semiautomatic assault weapon or machinegun or the frame of a handgun.

    (2) An assault weapon parts kit.

    (3) A machinegun parts kit.

H.R. 7115 was introduced on November 2, 2018 and sponsored by Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr., a Democrat from New Jersey for ďhimself, Mr. Sires, Ms. Norton, Mr. CŠrdenas, Mr. Khanna, Mr. Pascrell, Ms. Schakowsky, Mr. Hastings, Ms. Clarke of New York, Mr. Carbajal, Mr. Soto, Mr. McGovern, Ms. Kelly of Illinois, and Mr. Rush).Ē It has been referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce and the Committee on the Judiciary.

Unsure how a bill passes? Click here. (
 And remember, the Dems took back the House this election.

Think this doesnít concern you because you donít build guns? It does. In Washington State an untold number of guns are about to be redefined as ďassault weaponsĒ thanks to the vague, blatantly anti-gun wording of the 1639. H.R. 7115 will concern you because if it passes (yes, the GOP still has the Senate and presidency) because itís nationwide. Goodbye AR builds, goodbye Polymer80 handgun builds, goodbye enormous chunk of gun rights.

The language of this bill should worry you. You should take it upon yourself to call your representative. If you can, you should donate to the firearms advocacy group of your choice (and here I will mirror what a respected member of the industry said over the summer: if youíre not part of the NRA youíre part of the problem. I may not love everything they do ó I may even loathe some of it ó but they remain our best chance of coming out of this fight at least somewhat intact, so suck it up, buttercup.).

There should be an outcry, not this deafening silence. Yes, Iím angry. Iím tired of seeing gun rights eaten away in tiny, unassuming bites and deeper, gouging chunks with only the most ardent among us actively fighting against it.

The far left is picking a fight with an industry that counts its participants by the tens of millions Ė strike that, by the hundreds of millions. If close to half of Americans own guns (they do) and more than that shoot or hunt now and then, why arenít we winning these smackdowns casually and without much effort? Oh yeah, complacency.

Get it together, people. The fight for our rights isnít in 2020 or 2024, itís here. Right. Now.

Thinking about ditching the ol vest and moving on to a pack/vest hybrid  I see a few different models, any input? One worry I have is the shoulder strap of a pack being thick enough to be in the way while shouldering a shotgun? Thanks for your thoughts!

This hunt worked out well for us. Iím guessing success odds arenít that high on this hunt any most probably get discouraged with how tough this hunt can be if you donít really do your homework. Land is constantly changes hands in these units. My number one spot was posted when I got there. Two different private land options dried up and werenít options. Because I had multiple options it still worked out. I hope people donít read this thread and see two of the three people on this thread have already tagged out. There are a bunch of these tags and I wonder how many actually get filled. I also wonder how many people tag out before this hunt. I know my daughter drew this one and a doe tag that was good during the general season.
