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%

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
