I like the right handed when hunting yardbirds with a primative weapon, such as my old Loisville Slugger:) The heads come off better and are more stable in flight:D IMHO Happy Swinging!

having hunted yard birds for years...with a variety of weapons....from primitive to modern.....I consider myself a self appointed expert on the subject....I mostly swing right handed but one thing that I have learned is that the ole trophy yard birds may attack at any time from any direction....so one must practice with both swings and be ready..."endeavor to persevere"!

LMAO:D Kildog, In Mt we carry big pistols for bear attack backup. Pepper spray is for SEASONING, before DINNER!:D Any way would "The Club" (that I have left over from my stolen car) be a good left handed backup for the Trophy Class Attacking Yardbirds?:confused: I need your help......would hate to get pecked to death.:p

In a few more years, it won`t matter which way you swing. Thank`s to you and Kildog inventing that newfangled slingmuzzygun, good oldfashioned yardbird hunting will be a thing of the past!;)

Kildog, I dont think its legal to shoot Grizz in self defence either. Let alone seasoning them with pepper spray.:p But on such violent critters as yardbirds and bears we may have to bend the rules.:D Just a LIL' Bit:eek: 'Sides what am I gonna do with my club?

K......here is the answer to which direction of fletch you should use. Keep in mind that you can not do the actual fletch until you have figured out where you will put your tree stand up in the timber. This is all an ODDS thing. If you place your stand in a spot where you are on a trail (hopefully),,,notice which side of the stand you will be most likely to shoot. If the trail is to the right, then fletch to the right and bisa-versa..If the trail is strait in front of you, then I would go with a strait fletch. Where it gets tricky is when they sneak up from behind you, remeber there is alwys an exception.....do not fletch your shaft BACKWARDS. Personally, I would try to face that buck and go with a strait fletch. So the bottom line is......I would try to have a variety of different set-ups in your quiver for anything that may happen. Hope this helps!!!!

I suggest we rename Archerytalk.com to ChickenTalk.com. Anybody out there willing to stick their neck out there and agree with me in order to be certified?

You left out the Hunting naked with spears part. Come join us and you'll never forget us either. Don't know if that is good or bad? You'll have to ask Kildog that one.
