We have estrus, grunt calls and turkey call.
I shoot the Carbon Express Maximum Hunter with weight technology. I will go heavier next year to a 500 grain because I want a Eland.
My Arrow length is 28 1/8" I was told to shoot from a 400 to a 500 grain hunting arrow for plains game.
That's my total weight 400 grains. I did a gel test and it penetrated very well. 25" deep
