Decided to take advantage of the break in the rain and quit loading up animals 2-by-2 and building my big boat for them:) I used the time to broadhead tune for the 2007-2008 Hunting Season...before somebody starts seeing Rut activity next week:wink:
I decided to post the sequence of events here to help out those that have never done this before or for those that tried and got frustrated. This is just how I did it.

Set-up
Martin Slayer Xtreme 28.5" DynaCam 65# SouthPaw Version (Left-Hand):thumb:
Trophy Taker Original Drop-Away
Winners Choice 452x string/cable
6" Fuse Axium Stabilizer
Sword 3rd Axis Micro-Apex 0.010" pins
Carbon Express Maxima 350 with bull-dog collars and 2 inch Blazer vanes
G5 Striker 100 grain broadheads

Shot distance 25 yards
Target Rinehart 18-1

Shafts were cut on an Apple Arrow Saw and squared using a G5 ASD (Arrow squaring Device) carbon cutter side on both the cut end and nock ends. Inserts were installed and inserts were squared with aluminum side of cutter on G5 ASD. Shafts were fletched with 3 Original Blazer Vanes (2 inch) on a Bitz jig Right helical clamp.

good work were. thanks for the detailed log.

you make it sound SO simple...



regards
Stef.
Thanks, but I guess it is relatively simple IF you have eliminated any contact issues (aka vane clearance) and your arrows are matched with your rig (that is within factory spec) and the bow is somewhat in tune to start with.

THAT is the way to tune a bow!
That is my #1 recommendation for people with paper tearing issues.

I don't notice much difference up close but check to make sure I don't ruin blades. Then I tune at 50, and check to 70. May never shoot that far, but what a confidence builder in your equipment.

I would agree for the most part, but I just put the rest and sight on this bow (same combo I used last year, but had them on a different bow for MBR) and installed a Simms teflon cable slide. The only thing I did was check cam timing, ATA and BH before sighting in the FP's at 25 yards.
This is a "start from scratch" type scenario.:)

I think this thread is sticky worthy since the season is so close.

:darkbeer:
I might know somebody that can do that very thing:wink:

Nice job!

You may be responsible for the deaths of several more hooved animals this year. :eek: :wink:
