Archer's Homework Assignment - Need Help

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to collect some data regarding arrow trajectory and I'm hoping a few die hard FM archers would like to participate:

1) Setup target at exactly 20 yards on level ground. Indoor or outdoor as long as wind does not enter into the equation. Your bow and pins must be previously sited-in at 20, 30, 40 and (50 yards if you shoot a five pin set-up.)

2) Place vertical line and horizontal line on target (X should be very low on block targets)

3) Shoot at least 6 arrows at horizontal line with your 20 yard pin to ensure you're spot on

4) Shoot at least 6 arrows at horizontal line with 30 yard pin and take average measurement on vertical line from X

5) Shoot at least 6 arrows at horizontal line with 40 yard pin and take average measurement on vertical line from X

6) Shoot at least 6 arrows at horizontal line with 50 yard pin and take average measurement on vertical line from X

Post results with bow type, bow brand, poundage, draw length, arrow type: aluminum or carbon, arrow weight, (include field tip weight, fletching and nock), arrow length, vane style and arrow speed if you can get it. I understand there are many more variables involved, but what is listed above should provide enough input for my physics exercise/experiment.

Thanks

Okay - went out today and shot my Parker at my block at 20 yards and here are the results:

1) My 20 yard pin was dead on the horizontal line

2) My 30 yard pin arrows on average hit 6" above the horizontal line

3) My 40 yard pin arrows on average hit 11" above the horizontal line

4) My 50 yard pin arrows on average hit 18.25" above the horizontal line

5) Parker Wildfire XP Bow, 60 lbs, Draw length 29", Beman ICS Hunter 340 carbon arrow, 75 grain field tip, arrow length 30.5", don't know total arrow weight, don't know arrow speed, FOC 8.898%

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
