    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 make my own and it cheapens the cost but don't scrimp too much on arrows. You gotta have good arrows.

    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.

    It's not important to me. I'll concern myself more with physical weight of the arrow and the broadhead.

    That's your choice, it is tougher than modern equipment and not for everyone. Elitist-ish... but you think his remarks are not.

    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.

    I'd suggest no lighter than 8x bow weight for hunting (including broad head) and recommend 9 or 10.. I use more but you'll find lots of differing opinions.
