Bullmoose, yes we can use real antlers here. but thats different because they consider that calling, not decoying. same with grunt tubes. rattle bags are also OK. not decoying. but if you have a buck there, and you squeeze him where it would hurt, they say thats a no-no. again, using a live animal part. electronic calling is also a no-no.

Thanks for the info. We cant use electronic callers either here in PA except for predators. Im glad though people would probably have a whole soundsytem out in the woods.

Default Finding Your FOC

Ok, cats and kittens here's a simple way to find your FOC.

1. Balance your arrow, with broadhead, on your finger. Mark that balance point. Then, measure from the bottom of your nock groove to that mark. Write that number down.

2. Measure your shaft from the bottom of your nock to the insert. Divide by 2. Write that number down.

3. Subtract the divided arrow length from the balance point.

4. Multiply the resulting number by 100.

5. Divided that number by the total arrow length.

I'll use my arrow as an example.

Balance point: 18"
Arrow length: 28.5"/2=14.25"

18-14.25=3.75

3.75*100=375

375/28.5=13%

You don't know HOW LONG I tossed that around before I put that post up. I was back and forth.

Glad everyone got a smile out of it.

I really couldn't resist tho.
