#22 – Arrows 101 with Shane Chater

This week Matty has mustered up Shane Chater from Bowhunters Domain to give us the 101 on arrows.


Bowhunting and archery are incredibly technical. Fortunately for us newbies, people like Shane from Bowhunters Domain exist. Shane is a wealth of knowledge and happily explains the ins and outs of arrows.


Matty and Shane dive into the basics of what makes up an arrow, how you should select the correct spine and arrow weight. Why it’s important to match the poundage of your bow to weight and stiffness of your arrow.


The boys dive into the topic of ‘heavy arrows’ and Front of Centre (FOC) and why and how both of these can be of benefit for hunting. They also talk about arrow weight for hunting Australia’s big game animals.
