Fill your quiver with the right ammo this season

All arrows pretty much look the same, but the similarities end with aesthetics because they certainly don’t offer cookie-cutter performance. Far from it. Arrows vary widely from brand to brand – even batch to batch – and that matters. A lot.

Even for the whitetail hunter who may never shoot past 30 or 40 yards on a target or a deer, the quality and performance of arrows can be the difference between center-punching a buck’s lungs or hitting a non-deer-body element of the forest like the tree he’s standing next to when you let fly.

This begs the question of what makes a quality arrow and whether it’s necessary to spend up to get top-notch ammo as a whitetail hunter. After testing, shooting, and hunting with dozens and dozens of different arrows over the years, I say yes without an ounce of hesitation. Find arrows that are spined correctly for your setup, offer the GPI weight you prefer, and then are batched and matched according to spine and weight tolerances. After that, get shooting.
