Carbon express terminators, Beman Ics hunters, and Gold tips are all very good arrows in that price range.

Incidently I went for very expensive arrows this year. I got the Carbon Express Aramid KV. They cost about $170 per dozen. I can live with that if they last a long time but like a moron I shot a group on Thursday and got a robinhood at 50 yards. grin $34 down the drain. mad

Ted- check out the Cabelas stalker extremes. $60 a dozen for carbon arrows. I shoot the weight and draw length as you, and I'm more than accurate enough with the cabelas arrows.

Several different models in the Carbon Express line to fill your needs. Weight forward technology can't be beat for keeping those broadheads flying straight.

DonBo....this new 'weight forward' technology advertising has been cracking me up. You don't have to spend big bucks on arrows, just use 125 grain broadheads.

I second the Cabelas carbon arrows. Look at the specs and they are made better than I can shoot to know a difference. To me they shoot the same as the big buck maxima hunters I bought before..(not again) The Archery guy at Cabelas said they are made by I think it was Easton. good specs carbon, pre-fletched with blazer vanes for about $60 a dozen to me it a no brainer. The only negative is getting them. This Sat. morning I made a special trip to get some and they are sold out. I was really annoyed by that and asked the sales rep. how you can be sold out on sat morning. he blamed it on the game fair and said he was more upset than I was because he will have to explain it to over 50 more guys just like me before the end of the day. so I guess they are pretty popular. I know one thing it sure stings a lot less when you lose one.

Gold tips are great arrows, but I don't think they are in his price range of $60-$70.

I've been shooting Beman's for 5 years now and they shoot great for me. I bought 2 dozen when they were on sale and still have 14 left but once they run out I might try the Cabela's. The specs are so close on all the carbon arrows that I think only a tournament archer could tell the difference.

As you can tell by my username I shoot Goldtips and I am continuing to but not the high buck ones instead I found a dozen fletched for 50 bucks on www.keysonecountrystore.com they are called Vapor Hunters and are now made by Goldtip I just got my dozen and they shoot and pattern awesome.

I have heard lots and lots and lots of good things about gold tip.

Goldtip- I'm not sure if it's the wording or not-did somebody else make the vapor hunters before goldtip?

If I sell my bow at the end of the season again I might sell the arrows with it and go with the goldtips for next year.

        Alpha trout at head of feed lane. Maybe in fast broken water Subordinates all over hole but not close to alpha. Cast into top most part of fast funnel. Alpha waiting part way down the skinny feed funnel. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. When wading, wake control a large factor here. Stay out of water if you can. Make first cast count or will get only dinks in this hole.

      Bigger trout from area wintering at bottom of slow water near the fast water. Not in fast water. Subordinates chased out of hole by bigger trout. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. Cast into top of feed funnel and slow retrieve so presentation will get down to trout sitting on bottom just back from the end of the fast water.

      Trout extra wary on sunny no vegetation winter outing. Don't slap hole with line. Stay out of the water when attacking hole. Will be a one fish "only" hole due to water clarity and zero vegetation in hole. Any smart fish will spook when one is battled and drug through this clear non-vegetated hole.
    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
