  • I've been bowhunting deer for years and bird hunting with shotgun even longer. I'd like to try my hand at bowhunting upland game

    I've been bowhunting deer for years and bird hunting with shotgun even longer. I'd like to try my hand at bowhunting upland game birds with my pointing dogs. Any suggestions on where to find flu flu arrows and if I have to increase or decrease my current 55lb draw. Thanks

    I don't know, but I would make a trip the bow shop and start there. You can always do some research on the internet.

      I was reading the other day about bowhunting for turkeys and it said you should decrease draw weight when bow hunting turkeys. I would assume that you would need to decrease it to hunt upland birds as well. I have never tried though so asking an expert would be best.

        I wouldn't decrease the draw weight for turkey - those feathers are tough.

        You can buy flu flu arrows on line (just do a search). Some archery shops might also have them in stock. I presume you are using them for something like partridge or pheasant rather than turkey.
