2012 Hoyt Carbon Element

The 2012 Hoyt Carbon Element with the RKT cam is a sweet shooting bow in the 29/60 configuration.
I can get over 300 fps with 480 spine Easton blood lines at 62lbs easy. But it still shoots them awesome at 52 lbs.
Even with the short axle length and all that speed they still shoot better than my old school target bow!
I bought mine at "Sportsman's Choice".


What is your opinion on the use of crossbows? I think it's worth hearing about.
I think that it's a great way to make the woods more assessable.

O.K before you chime in listen to this.

Arrow fletching, Feathers or Plastic?

What do you use on your arrows?
Feathers or Plastic, that's an age old archery question. It's still under debate.

How do I decide how best to stabilize my arrow or bolt in flight. Start here with this.

Fixed blade heads will fly best with feathers hands down. Great for stabilizing every thing.

Longer plastic vanes (3-4 inch) work good for fixed blades. Good for every thing.

Deploying broad heads work good with the short vanes (2inch blazer types). The short ones are good for 3-d and target too.

Home Brewing

"?Home Brewing made Easy?"

Needless to say, I had to learn this ancient craft. I do mostly testing now...

So I quoted this bunch of information.

If you have a little time and money, home brewing is a great hobby. You can get a good starter kit at many websites from $75.00 to $200.00. Any order over an certain amount gets free shipping usually. I’d stay away from the glass carboys, as they are harder to work with, and they will break.
