The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is no where as important as being able to place it in the correct spot....!

Hi Jeff,

Thank you... :biggrin:

I was lucky enough to pickup this Glenn Newell bow from a mate...

It’s a obviously a bamboo backed longbow with the belly wood being a species of Eucalyptus from the Gordonvale district at Cairns...

It’s a beautiful bow to shoot, very quiet and dead in the hand... 8)

And as always I’m shooting woods... :biggrin:

Hey Jeff,

Yes mate I’ve pretty much shot wood since getting my first bow... I started with a set of alloy arrows and then a couple dozen carbons followed by the woods and never looked back...

For some reason I get so much more satisfaction in making and taking game with woods... 8)

By the way I’ve been using the 3 blade Woodsmans on all my deer and small game hunts... I’ve been finding them to be very effective... :biggrin:

That's it mate; same here and I have no desire to try those syntharras. :wink:

I'll just keep using the Ribbies as I have a good supply of them. Sadly I haven't got out for a hunt for quite some time but one day again hopefully. Enjoy your time out bush mate.
