      My Beman Camo Hunters just got discontinued. They weighed in at 10 grns per inch. They are replaced by the New and improved?????? Hunter Pros. I do like the arrow but Its coming in at just a little over 8 grns per inch. (340)’s

      Would I be better off switching to a heavier arrow?

      by the way this is Crystalshrimp… for some reason i was not recongized when I renewed membership…

      What would you do in this Arrow Situation? Stick with lighter arrow for a higher FOC or look for a Heavier arrow.

      55@28 with a 681 grn arrow right now…..

      The lighter the shaft and heavier the head, the higher the FOC and the better penetration. Your total weight is fine; anything above 650.

      The ICS Camo Hunters are being discontinued? They’re a great shaft.

      I agree 100%. I was just about to order and then I did the math. These new hunters would give me a total weight of 620 grns. Soooooo that means i will not be using them. Id like to buy the carbon expres heritage but they are 12 grns per in. in the 350’s (.320) spine. that would lower my FOC… a big no no.

      So what I’m asking now is suggestions on a strong arrow light enough to push my 360grns up front from my 52 lbs of draw weight. I was using Beman Camo Hunters (340’s) cut to 30″

      (.340) spine deflection

      I only get a chance at them 1 week out of the year either during November or January on the Laguna Atascosa Refuge. Most everyone hunts there from a Tripod and I think it is a smart idea to do so. I hunt from the ground. I had 2 encounters this past year, one at 15 yds and one at about 5 yds. Both encounter were startling and brief. I shoot a 681 grn arrow from a 55# LB. I have access to 2 other places that have a decent number of Nilgai aswell but I’m limited to hunting Does on their property. I wont complain. You know as well as I do, hunting in Texas is difficult as it is and even more so when you dont have land to hunt on.
