Good stuff Andy. Thanks for taking the time to put it up.

This should go in the archives to help folks years from now with their questions.

If I ever get over to Oz. (My Brother lives in Sidney) I'm gonna plan my trip around you guys. thanks for the info. Don

Thanks for the great info.

It would be nice if you could give your opinion on set ups, bow, arrow weights and especially broadheads that you think are good an those that haven't worked so well. I do understand this puts you on the spot a little so if you have the time a PM would would be great.

I'm very interested in one of these hunts, so expert advice is extremely helpful. I would like to learn more.

Hunting was hazardous, but at least it guaranteed the freedom of the individual.

There is no doubt that the onset of farming saw the end of leasure for the majority of people, who were destined to toil in the fields.

Its about the same Clint.
A heavy enough arrow and this may just be a chance for a Stone point.....without having to go through the ribs. How brave you feeling these days [readit] [Smile]

I would think that thick fiberous hide would be a problem with stone points.

perhaps andy. it would take alot more testing and i'm not living in buff country any more. you might have to take the reins on that one. woody would be glad to make you some points i'm sure.

james, stone points seem to work for the hide, it's the ribs they don't like.
