I am constantly tinkering around with my gear but there is one area that never changes....my arrows!

For my compound i shoot:

Plains Game: Gold Tip Pro Hunter 5575's.

Dangerous Game: Grizzly Stik SAFARI

For my Recurve i shoot:

Plains Game: Carbon Express Heritage 250's and Grizzly Stik Alaskans.

I have been tempted to try some Easton Full Metal Jacket Dangerous game arrows but haven't found any at a price i like yet.

What arrow do you shoot?

I used Beman ICS carbon hunters which wiegh in at 9.1 grains per inch. With a 100 grain broadhead my total arrow weight is at 350 grains. Good enough for anything elk size and smaller.

I have always been fond of GoldTip's as they are really reliable, they are tough and fly very well. The past few years i have used the Big Game 100+ shafts which are (regardless of their straightness rating) very accurate arrows.

Be sure to check out GoldTip's new 2011 "skinny" shafts which are very much the same as Easton Axis shafts (not FMJ's), they are also available in .500, .400, .300 and .200 spines with a decent GPI throughout the range.

I hunted with Easton Excel 340, Blazer Vanes and 125 grain fixed two-bladers.
Worked very nice for my bow and me.

Last year I used Carbon Express Maxima Hunter 350 shafts. I put on custom arrow wraps from Battledrum.com and fletched with Blazer vanes. Tipped with a 100 grain Shuttle T-lock, they seemed to do the trick.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
