This site is about having some fun, learning, helping others, and enjoying the commaradre' of other waterfowl hunters. And if you do not like those 4 things, then do not let the door hit you on the way out of here.
This is why they recommend that you check the arrows before each use. I have carbon arrows for one bow: my practice bow (lighter poundage) that I used to work on my form. the rest of the time (90% of it), I shoot cedar shafts. So I'm thinking I only have a <10% chance of that happening.
It reminds me of the e-mail that is going around about the guy getting shot in the back of the head by his buddy with a broadhead. It is nasty looking. I have the e-mail with the pictures if any one wants to see it. I'm not sure how to post it or I would do that. Can I just copy it in?
That is why you always need to be checking out your arrows everytime you go out to shoot. I hve seen pics of it done with alum. arrows too. A nick in the carbon or a dent in the alum. will do that sometimes.
It could have happend like what happend to my dad except my dad was a whole lot luckier it looks like.He pulled back his bow just practicing and when he got o full draw he heard a pop and before he could let off the string broke and the arrow (carbon) split in 3 pieces and luckly none hit him like that.He did have one small piece go in his hand.
If you dont have a Lab then you dont have a real dog
