      Hello to all, I’m brand new here. Dr. Ed steered me to this place. Been reading a bit about FOC/UFOC/EUFOC and shot placement. I’m experimenting with wood & aluminiums & some old carbons too, for building a good flying arrow for whitetails and stubborn tree-rats. I’m a ‘believer’, looks like I finally found the right campfire! If there’s an extra chair, I’ll bring some more wood, coffee, and a spot of aiming fluid too :wink:.

      Don’t forget history when looking to see what works well in bowhunting. That, dipped with some common sense, and an open mind, will bring you much satisfaction in the sport. Welcome.

      Welcome Zachery sounds like you have some good test information for us that is great.

      Howdy from up north where I’m working on building some EFOC arrows for my new longbow.

      Welcome Ed! Ah yes, the aiming fluid! Let’s don’t forget the shaft stretchers and a bucket of steam. 😀 With those anything is possible.

      Welcome Ed Zachary, come on in and grab a seat by the campfire- KingWouldBe’s got the cigars, I have the Jim Beam ‘aiming fluid’, Dave Petersen’s got the elk tenderloins and everybody else can bring whatever contributes to our common interest and cause. Some querys- Where from- what do you hunt- kind of bow- how associated with Dr. Ed Ashby( our favorite missile expert). I have a feeling we’ll all be shooting ‘Scuds’ in the future. Good hunting- Bert

      I’m a jackpine savage where the woodticks are the size of nickels and leap out trees 😆 I hunt whitetails, tree-rats, snowshoe hares, partridge, and maybe someday a hog or two. I use a simple recurve and am trying a ‘skinny string’….she’s decently fast and good in the hand.

      I’ve read of Dr. Ashby’s “Study” from that other site for some time. I’m no whizbang for physics so it is a firm article of faith that I have in his findings. Even for whitetail….where maybe a high FOC arrow with good shaft integrity and a BH that stays sharp spells the difference in an accidental ‘marginal’ hit.

      I’m inspired by KWB’s carbons with external footings and 190 gr. (?) Grizzly BH’s. I’m experimenting with that concept for woodies and aluminiums….more to come after we get through this current ice-age 🙁

      Welcome!

      You bet, don’t forget history, but then again progress does not necessarily mean letting go of tradition…

      My wood arrow mentor John Dodge told me years ago, “T, don’t believe anything I say, test everything for yourself.”

      That’s some of the best advice he ever gave me.

      He also would always tell me this when I’d expound on some new theory I read about in a magazine, “There you go reading again T.” He was a firm believer of trying things out yourself so you knew from experience, not just from reading about someone else’s.
