Default shoot through netting on blinds....

does anyone here shoot through the screen on their blind. i never have and am curious to see what they thought about doing so. does it affect your arrow flight? arrow speed? and make a lot of noise while passing through?

I haven't had any problems shooting through mine. But I always use the fixed blade muzzy's. They recommend that you don't shoot mechs through the mesh. And I have only shot out to 20 yards. I don't know if it will affect accuracy after that. Good luck

I shoot Rockets through mine. Pretty small head with short blades. Ive practiced with it and with out it at 20 & 30 yards and I shoot consistant groups. I think it might drop your fps by like 5 or 10 but nothing terribly bad.

Didn't seem to slow down a slug much.



Killed my first turkey with a bow throught the same window the next spring after patching it up from the shotgun.

Ummmm i think the warning lable plainly states not to shoot a fiream through the shoot through mesh with firearm other than a bow. I dont think they are recomoneded for slugs or bullets.

I have shot several exposed blade broadheads through the shoot through mesh with little change in accuracy out to about 20 or so yards. Haven't shot farther than that so I cannot comment. I, personally, wouldn't shoot mechanicals because of the danger of opening.

you should practice shooting through them a few times. I had no problems with mine in practice...never seen anything while in the blind though to try it out in the woods

Guess I need to get my equipment a better education. I don't think my gun or ammo read those rules. Acted just like it wasn't even there.

I bet the deer and turkey would be glad to hear it, I don't think I'll tell 'em.
