Default I m-mm-missed

I'd have sworn that squirrel was going to be my dinner...

Just an inch lower and there'd have been squirrel blood on that arrow.



On a side note, I may need to drop bow weight so I don't get so much penetration on inanimate objects. 20 minutes to dig a Snuffer out of a log is ridiculous!

Or just use some judo points.

Pigs is one of the reasons my fun arrow has a broadhead on it. It's an old beat up snuffer that I don't mind destroying. That, and with the longbow, I was not sure how effective a Judo would be on a squirrel.

I have some 75 grain Thumpers that attach with a 100 grain field point to give me my 175 grains. Use a 125 grain field point and you'll have your 200.

A judo is plenty effective with a longbow. 52# at my draw will send a judo clean through a tree rat. Well, clean ain't the word I'd use to describe it.

After several misses on deer my first year of bow hunting I decided I would take my anger out on a coon. I shot two logs, a rock, and a tree about 10 foot up lol. No idea how I shot a tree 10 foot up.

Should have just cut a couple of feet out of the log and mounted it on the wall. Would've made a great conversation piece.

I think your set up for deer and pigs will kill a squirrel with a judo. This was killed with my target bow. 38# at my draw length, 15 yard shot.

I may try those thumpers at some point. They look great!

I really don't mind shooting broadheads only though. I like to imagine that I'll stick 4 hogs in a day some day, hahahaha! The only shots I'll take on squirrels is on the ground. My arrows are too expensive (without factoring in whatever I have as a point), to take shots that are too risky anyways.

Hah! I don't get numb, I get revenge!!!

I'm researching slingshots this evening so I can head shoot the little blighters when they won't come out of the trees. I figure if judo points will kill them I can go high tech with some flat bands and .44 cal lead balls and do just as well.

As they say, LDP pics coming soon (I hope, lol).
