Actually Gary, if you added the weight to the front of the arrow as I

accuracy. Trust me, I know. I have missed a shot or 2, cleared many trees,
and it still drops right to the ground. Without the weight, I used to lose
arrows all the time.

The reason I now only use the spud is I
have no single easy tree to get over, it's
a forest I have to shoot into, and the
arrow is too light to bring itself down
through the branches with a fishing line
I first used slingshots & the lead weight
was hard to find in the woods. Then I
tried arrows where I was having them hang
in the branches. The spud weighs about a
pound and it drops right through the
branches, never hangs up.
If someone is shooting over a stand-alone
tree, an arrow or slingshot would likely
