    Hard to say, but that not a bad thing. I've always thought my broad heads shot better than field points.

    Sounds like you're doing fine, just keep practicing.

    I've done some but not very good at itů a lot to learn yet.. I like antler but some material doesn't seem to work as well as others. I'm sure my inexperience has much to do with that.

    If you're getting full draw, full 45# you've got enough for a whitetail.

    I changed to 4 1/2 inch feather a while back to still get 2 burns from a full length feather.. Didn't see a big difference in broad head control or noise.

    Cedar arrows work well for me. I have some carbon but I have trouble getting the good arrow flight due to spine issues. It's also a cost factor for me, I can make wood arrows a lot cheaper.
