Just wondering if an Easton axis 400 tipped with a 100gr. fixed blade broad head shot at 286ft./sec. is suitable for elk. Just concerned about the small shaft of the arrow. Is the 100gr. tip enough or should I be looking @ 125gr.
Your set up is real close to mine and that should be a great setup. The smaller diamter arrows are great for better penetration. My arrows weight a total of 468.00 grains, and I have right around 70lbs of KE at 10yards! Should be an elk killer in my book.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
