Just Got back from ETAR at Denton Hill. Had a great time and bought another Ron Foley long bow. I brought some footed carbons for those for those "rare" rock hits. I notice I tend to shoot the footed arrows a little more accurately. I'm assume the footed shaft enables me to "see" the tip of the arrow with secondary vision when shooting. I've always shot broadheads better probably for the same reason. I've never hunted with a footed carbon. Wondering if anybody hunts with them and are there any up or down side to them.
