Default Shooting Through "Shoot-Through" Netting

Hey All,

New guy here, very first post. Been lurking for anbout 2 weeks and had to finally get in on the fun.

Have a question for you. Have any of you every shot a deer through the shoot-through netting on a ground Blind? If so, what were the effects on arrow flight?, more importantly, did you get the deer?

I am using fixed broadheads (Shuttle T-Lock). I understand how mechanicals would definitiely be a no-no but just wondering if I need to do anything different with fixed.

Thanks

Ron

I understand it to have no effect on broadheads. I have never shot through my netting so I can't speak from personal experience but from what I have read you should be just fine.

They say it doesn't affect the arrow flight. I know if you hit a twig the arrow will deflect dramatically. I don't see how it could have no affect on the arrow but it must be minimal. Welcome to the forum.

The shoot through netting has no effect on the arrow. If you run a search (I would do it for you, but I'm heading out to class as soon as I post this), you'll find a post I made quite awhile back with a couple videos shooting through the mesh in my backyard. Mobow actually shot a deer (a doe of course ) through the netting of the Matrix I purchased from him.

I practiced out of my blind this year because I plan to hunt more out of it. It had no effect on my arrow flight. Keep your broadheads sharp and it should work as advertised.

Myself and another individual lost 3 arrows (total of 4 shots) shooting thru the mesh. Determined that it effects flight.

It has to effect it. I think the degree to which your bow is tuned determines how much the mesh affects the arrow flight. A perfectly tuned bow shooting bullet holes through paper would likely not be affected much. But an arrow coming off the bow with anyfishtail could be affected quite a bit, don't you think?

I shot two does through the mesh of my Big Game Deluxe within 10 mins apart with muzzy 100gr 3 blade broadheads with no problem. As long as you can shoot a few inches back from the mesh then you shouldnt have a problem with arrow flight.
