    I like to shoot rabbits and any other small game I can spot.(thats in season of course),I dont have a pic but I just use my regular setup with a wing nut behind the field point,and I spray paint an old arrow orange to help find it.

    Huh, a wing nut? That's a great idea! No need then to buy some $40 small game blunts. So, if my bow is set up at 60 lb's would that be too much poundage?

    No 60 isnt to much,if you want to be on the safe side you could turn it down a little
    Just be careful that you dont shoot any branches/stumps as it will probably damage your arrow,and when you shoot be sure to watch your where your arrow goes.Its easy to watch the bird/rabbit and not your arrow.

    Haven't gone out just small game, but I do carry two arrows with the Carbon Express shock tips on them. Mostly for when the Partridge is walking in the leaves around my stand.

    I have found that field points don't do the job.

    I use those blunt small game collars that go behind your field point and I shoot a lot of birds with that.
