    Filtering through the b.s. to find the truth. The scientific method. Quality rifles, reloading, and archery not just because I didn’t draw or fill a rifle tag.

    Arrow flight at higher elevations?

    With lower atmospheric density arrows will gain velocity and pin gaps will indeed change. Compare with graphics below. No gang adjustment will fix that. The easiest and surest way to reduce velocity: lower the poundage of your bow, a little. At altitude, Go to your farthest comfortable pin setting and shoot, remove a little poundage (1/4 turn at a time) and verify. This keeps your pin gaps relevant and negates the need to completely re-sight in. I lose confidence readjusting everything. With this method you just ticker off a little poundage and test till your pins are right, then when you go home, crank up to original poundage and you will be dead on.

    Arrow setup for you elk tag holders

    I'd say anything in the neighborhood of 400-420 grains or heavier would be sufficient. If you want to keep your current shaft you could get weight tubes from 3 rivers archery as they have little to no effect on spine.

    small backpack purge

    I'll take the tenzing pack. How do I get you paid?
  4. I use a stabilizer/s to level the bow at full daw, to get the mass weight of the bow to the desired weight, and to adjust the hold pattern and float of my pins. They make plenty of silencing accessories to quiet down a bow. I use a stabilizer to stabilize. Law of inertia and what not, it's harder to disrupt a heavy object. Here's a couple of my hunting rigs with longer than normal front bars and rear bars

    Pretty hard to beat anything from Carter Enterprises. Scott archery also makes a good product.

    a pistol

    R12-4-318-C-1 & 2 States that you can carry a non hunting handgun during muzzle-loading and archery only hunts as long as it has a barrel of 6" or less with no optical or electric sight and may not be used to take wildlife. R12-4-304 states that a center fire handgun may be used during any general big game hunt or H.A.M. hunt.

    Unit 27 Coues Hunt

    I believe he is referring to 27 in N.M. as this is the N.M. forum. Access is tough in that unit and land owners can be bull-ish on public land. My advice is get a land status card for your GPS and know exactly where you are. If they give you guff report them to NMGFD.

    Carbon express???

    Long but worth watching if you're interested in carbon express. Other companies have better tolerances than the C.E. line at often better prices.
  15. I love them, they are not designed to stay together, they are not intended to exit. They are a nosler ballitic tip with moly coating. I want a bullet to dump all energy in the animal. They fragment well, which i look at as hundreds of wound channels. Bullets kill by hydrostatic shock and nothing delivers it as well as a ballistic tip. On coues/ antelope size game penetration will not be an issue. If that is not your cup of tea, the factory loadings with the Nosler accubonds would be a good alternative. Same profile and coefficient as the Ballistic tip.
