    Hey Bob I live right between New Bedford and the Cape. I hunt Zone 11 but have been messing with the idea of heading to the Berkshires to chase an archery bear in September. I mostly hunt public. As far as FOC I would like to mess with it some by adding weight up front. I put white wraps on my 5mm FMJ's and since I added weight to the back, I would like to add some up front but I'm not sure if it is possible to remove the standard HIT inserts and replace them with 50gr brass inserts but I planned on asking next time I go into the archery shop

    Hi Jeff, I’m in North Attleborough. I also hunt zone 11. Private property. I have to get at least two doe or I won’t be invited back next year. I put 100 grain inserts in my gold tip arrows with 125 grain Black Hornet Ser Razor broad head and that gives me a 12 1/4 percent FOC. Still messing with it though. I ordered some 50 grain weights from gold tip that screw into the back of the insert thru the nock end with a long Allen wrench.

    I have heard great things about the Ser Razors! Sounds like you hava a pass through machine! This year I am trying the 100gr Iron Will on FMJ's and I really cant wait to get on some deer. 2 does would be amazing, I literally saw one deer all last season but I got 2 the year before so hopefully I'm due for another good year. Will probably go check cams in another week or 2 to see whats around

    There’s a lot of deer in my spot, one picture had seven deer in it. I’m so excited we still have what 5 weeks to wait.

    Good luck with him, that is for sure a giant! I have one deer in particular I have been trying to kill for the last 2 seasons but I really only get a few photos of him a year. This is a very suburban area so I cant imagine he went far. Just need to stay mobile and put time in the tree!

    Thanks I can’t wait to see if he’s on first card pull. I put cameras up late this year to avoid spooking him and causing to break anything off. Last year he broke 2 of his non typical points off. I know he made it threw gun season but he’s a lil harder to pattern and a loaner. Never seen him with bachelor groups.
