its a log as far as i'm concerned but i think its like 360-370grs (its a VAP350, 110gr of point)
i was out of arrows this year and found them for like $40 on Ebay, so the value won out over performance

but i'm shooting a stout 27.5" draw 57lbs bow too so that is flinging that log out there really hard

The story itself was mesmerizing...I was glued to every page/word until the suspenseful ending. Incredible attention to detail.

Seriously, very nice buck and that broadhead is just wicked. Congratulations on getting it done.

Congrats Zane. Nice buck.

FYI, for everyone else. The way he wrote the story is exactly how Zane would have told you in person. Classic, to the point.

funny thing is i am as color blind as can be so i have to be overly deadly. and its rare that my setup lets a deer get out of sight before settling in for a long winters nap.
