    Another thought….Kentucky windage may not get a rocket to fly by and take pictures Pluto but it sure can put an arrow in the vitals…

    I think if we overthought riding a bicycle like we do shooting a bow we’d be busting our butts on every attempt to ride.

    I’ve been through the “thinking” stage and gave it up.  Nowadays I just diddle til it works and contribute it to man’s ability to make things work, go shoot my my bow and over the years have I’ve out a miss is me not any of the other billions of what if’s, molecules and ………..

    Saying all that I still have gravity and friction and wind excuses…and I know some of those targets butts jump the string…

    Speaking of 1916’s…Back in the day if you weren’t shooting 2117’s you didn’t know what you were doing…Now that I’m shooting 47# and 42# bows I’m simply amazed what 1916’s do….

     

    Never overlook common sense ……………..nor experience……………..after 60 or so years of bowshooting and tuning I just kinda know what’s gonna work and what maybe will….Explain to you?? Doubtful…Show you one on one very likely…

    Most of the time all I have to worry about hauling back to camp is my old arse………….A Snickers bar and a drink of water is helpful for that…

    My mix similar to yours but I like to add chipotle chili powder to mine. A teaspoon (or tablespoon depending on whose coming to dinner 🙂 ).

    Since I lost the ranch I’ve hunted for nearly 30 years I have a way bigger chance of eating beef this year…chipotle good with that too tho…A bright side to everything..

    I keep an original Leatherman in mine and instead of a bungee to aid in the field dressing I keep a couple of 15′ pieces paracord. That (paracord) has come in handy for other purposes a time or two.

    Might be good idea for experimenting to have have string plenty long and use the timber hitch method of attaching string to bottom limb. That way you can tie/untie that end for adjustment.When you find out what length works then you can make/buy new string ….

    You can search “archers knot”… all kinds of info

    At 75 I’ll just squeak a little and try not to squawk to much.

    Sometimes there’s a groan too.  Be my old body parts though methinks.

    Is your sting B50 or B55? Check your string length after it’s been strung on the bow and drawn a few times. It may need to be twisted up considerable being the nature of those string materials.

    I have my cock feathers 90* but neither of my jigs fletch that way. They’re a bit out of whack. Maybe some shoot aligned as such but that’s not my choice. So I never glue my nocks on permanent to start with, I use just a touch of glue to keep them in place during the fletching process.

    When I’m, thru I pop the nocks off and then glue them to the alignment I prefer.

    As far as first goes, I see no reason as to which, I just always start with the cock feather so I don’t get confused when fletching different colors of feathers.
