Default Weekend Hog Hunt with the Ranch Fairy

https://youtu.be/N7d7Nua-Pio


Some friends and I got together to try and kill some hogs. Troy 'Ranch Fairy' Fowler was there and schooled us on adult arrows. He did some testing on ballistic gel and was trying to figure out if ballistic gel was an accurate medium for testing arrow penetration etc. Very interesting stuff. Anyway, Troy is a great guy and knows his stuff. If you get a chance check out his videos on YT.

I helped Troy with the camera for his video. Im not sure if he's posted it yet. Im looking forward to that.

Safe hunting


JJ

Man I can’t stand watching that guy. He got kicked off archery talk awhile back. He’s just promoting Ashby findings.

Perception is a strange thing. Iíve watched his videos and donít feel that way.

Sip sip. Mornin Boss. FOC just means Full On crazy.

JJ...Awesome shot and fine pig. I liked how you kept the video slow after the shot and could see the blood spurting. Super cool!

God bless!

Maybe because he has poor business ethics, steals other peopleís ideas and rebrands them as his original work and knows little to nothing original about terminal performance or arrow lethality from a practical stand point? I donít know figured you can take your pickÖ.. thatís just what I hear anywayÖ

Personally Iíve never thought heís said anything that seemed like he came up with this heavy arrow/foc on his own. In fact Iíve actually heard him say multiple times that he stumbled into Ashby and has been trying to educate people on heavy setups.

Iím not an Ashby kool-aid drinker or a Ranch Fairy devotee, just stating what Iíve seen in his videos.

I get the impression he kinda like a VW. Like him or hate him, these posts illustrate this . Heís ďpreachyĒ and snarky at times, but does make many good points and walks the walk. I donít see him making much money off the videos either. I like him, not a fan boy, and shoot arrows around 470 grains, light by his assessment
