Not yet anyway.

But Europe is hard at work trying to ban & control things.

goat daddy I have been watching Ebay for arrows. Carbon arrows with plastic fletching and a screw in field tip are going cheap from China. Broadheads from china are also cheap. Big game seasons are opening here in the states. Prices may fall after season. Watch prices and shipping. I expect prices to drop in Jan or Feb. I did order a dozen carbon arrows with a 500 spline for my compound and a dozen broadheads. I may pick up a couple dozen cheap fiberglass field arrows for target and small game.

The Plucking of the Yew

Am I to understand that the Flipping of the bird and/or the Plucking of the Yew has been banned in Merry Old England ?

Hagalaz The person who did that should be beaten. If you ever happen to wound an animal, you track it until you find it & then dispatch it properly.

Or even better, if a person is that bad of a shot, give up bow hunting or just hunting altogether.

Doesn't seem to be faked.

Not just in NJ.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy shooting, but we're too many generations removed from the land here to allow bow hunting again.

Hagalaz An arrow through their face? If someone takes a shot like that, they aren't any kind of hunter. They would also have to be incredibly accurate or really lucky to land a shot like that.

Sorry-no-clues Bow hunting is perceived as cruel and unnecessary over here. If you want the thing dead, shoot it with a rifle, then you don't get images of deer with an arrow through their face. For our general population, an 18% wounding rate would be unacceptable.

Hagalaz Not really.

The UK has gone crazy with banning anything they "feel" might be dangerous. Sadiq Khan's knife ban is a clear example of this.

In Scotland, a man was arrested & may face 4 years in prison for carrying, of all things, a potato peeler in public. I know it sounds ridiculous, but its true.

Its strange that they would ban using one of the English's primary hunting tools through the ages, weapon of war, etc for hunting game.

I completely agree with this set up.

Goblin X ok your shooting old style with a two finger glove on the hold hand correct?hadnt done it that way in years, but in my opinion, and take that for what its worth spine shouldn't make a difference between the 2 styles. , but ensure you use feather fletch. and doublecheck your arrows after each shot for cracks......one pops in launch, its going to leave a scar to remember

Sorry-no-clues Just before ordering I re-read this thread. does the spine required differ, as I'm shooting off the back of my hand, rather than off a shelf? I was thinking they should be more flexible. The manufacturers seem not to consider that kind of shooting, and the longbow makers here all say I should buy their wooden arrows (imagine that!).

Those Zwickey broad heads look the business. Found a UK supplier.

And ammunition is considered an explosive ?
That's why they need to write the specific exemption
That's rough

Out of curiosity: is it the use of the bow or the use of broadhead arrows? My information is dated and probably simplified but I was told that the use of blunts for small game was legal, and all large game belonged to the crown, hence were illegal to take.

rwtrapper A 200 spine would be good but no heavier than 300 spine. The flex in the arrow is its forgiveness off the shelf. The carbon arrows are now made with wood grain finish. It keeps the wood arrow "look" with a carbon arrow.

Hope this helps

Best arrows for longbow hunting?

What arrows do people prefer for longbow hunting? It's illegal here in UK, but hey, we're preparing for when rules like that don't apply, and I'm sure they would be legal to shoot targets with in the meantime.

My bow is 78 inches nock-to-nock, yew, 40 pounds at 30 inch draw.

Suggestions please.
