How is everyone this week? Today we have a new Ghillie Suit and not one, but TWO new sets of competitions going into rotation.
I purchased some new arrows last week and decided to splash out a little and see if there was much difference in the high end brands. I went for some Gold Tip ‘Pierce’ arrows which are a newer hybrid hunting arrow, as they are much thinner than your standard hunting arrow. Well all I can say is that if there was not a catch net behind the foam, I would have likely been getting pass through. Next time i’ll get a photo of the back of the foam so you can see how hard in the catch net they are. So… yes there is a big difference in arrow quality and I guess the thinner shafts mean a more concentrated point of impact, hence the extra penetration.
This weeks video is a good one, two brothers ribbing each other, while heading out after some Elk, what could be more entertaining? Remember this shows real footage, so if you prefer to keep your hunting fix virtual, DO NOT CLICK Here.
