    Cape buffalo bow-hunt arrow & BH set up

    I am using a Garmin Xero Pro (rangefinder is integrated on the sight) sight. The furthest distance I get with this arrow weight is 56y. No issue at this distance with the accuracy but I am not planing to take the shot on a buffalo at this distance! I hope I will have a shot opportunity below 30y

    Cape buffalo bow-hunt arrow & BH set up

    Thank you for the link. I’ve probably already watched all his videos on BH. This is the Tuffhead evolution, the bevel angle, blade thickness and the material is not the same as the dangerous game. I’ll go the butcher this week to get some heavy bones and I’ll do a test with the Tuffhead...

    Cape buffalo bow-hunt arrow & BH set up

    @firehuntfish thank you for your help. Yes indeed, this is very surprising to have bullet hole with this spine. I did nock tune all my bareshaft arrows prior to fletch them. My arrows are cut to 27.75'' carbon to carbon. I am using a stainless steel 150 gr hit insert (which goes 3.5" into the...

    Cape buffalo bow-hunt arrow & BH set up

    No issue with the IW durability? Since this is not a one piece BH, there is alway a risk of failure compared to single piece BH. What was your arrow set up?

    Cape buffalo bow-hunt arrow & BH set up

    Hi, I’m going for a Cape buffalo bow-hunt in Zimbabwe in September. I’m still trying to decide the BH & arrow I’ll use. My plain game arrow is Victory RIP TKO 250spine, total arrow weight is 603gr @270fps. If I put a 400gr BH on this same arrow, I still get a bullet hole through paper (even...

    Arrow build for Cape buffalo & Giraffe

    Thanks for the advice on the BH. I'll order some cutthroat and DG tuffhead and do some field testing on bone. The bishop is an excellent BH but overpriced. I'll post the result once I receive the BH. I've shot a few arrows through the chrono this morning and calculated the momentum of each...

    Arrow build for Cape buffalo & Giraffe

    @Limcroma Safaris thank you for the reply and advise. Indeed, buffalo and giraffe are not prone to jump the string, so the speed is not a concern anymore. At the moment my set up is as followed: Goltip kinetic kaos 200 spine. TAW is 948gr and FOC is 28%. However, I'm not sure about the broadhead...

    One year from now, what will things look like

    10 days hunting trip to Namibia was scheduled to start on the 1st of May but it will never happen so we moved the date from mid August to end of August. Fingers crossed it will work out... Still 3 1/2 months away, so anything can happen. Namibia has only 12 cases of civid 19 since the start ...

    BOTSWANA: BOWHUNT: Bokamoso Safari Bowhunting Paradise

    Just received a pic from our PH Richard at Bokamoso Safari, he got the kudu I saw on the first day with another client. What an awesome Kudu, a trophy of a lifetime! He has 58 inches.

    BOTSWANA: BOWHUNT: Bokamoso Safari Bowhunting Paradise

    Richard Pealce was the PH, he was excellent throughout the safari. Yes, a lump of thorns was stuck to him, when I first saw him I thought he was injured. That was a monster Kudu, we never saw him again and he was the biggest one we saw on the 7 hunting days. We probably saw 10-12 kudu's over 50''.
