Had a good turnout last year down here at Texas Archery! The questions were tough from the audience and the presenters explained it in pretty simple terms......worth folks time on a weekend!

how do you tell people what to do to decrease the wound loss ratio?

It should be interesting, I'm not on the heavy arrow bandwagon, nor on the light, just give me something to shoots where I want it- every durn time.

I’ve spoke with Rob a few times, he’s a stand up guy and is doing a lot of positive things for the bowhunting community. Should be some great information for those in attendance.

Yes sir, above reproach. Won't even take money from archery corporations that want product placement.

They cannot. If they did, they could not test that product.

Arrow physics, tuning and lethality have nothing to do with the Indian. The subject is what the arrow does once it arrives on target. So instead of having a choice between the Indian or the arrow, what you want is THE Indian coupled with THE arrow.
