Stumpin' season
« on: March 03, 2020, 06:15:14 PM »
Well I understand that stumpin' season is really year round, but for this ol' gimp, I don't do so well with snow on the ground.
So for me, stumpin' season is when the snow is gone and I can get around in the woods.
I really enjoy a slow stroll with my K9 sidekick Buddy, punching leaves, pinecones and don't forget, those nicely punked out stumps.  :thumbsup: 
And hopefully get several trips in before the bighting bugs come out.  :archer:

Sounds like I have spring fever.  :saywhat:

Started stumping about 4-5 weeks ago in NY. Then I had unexpected gallbladder surgery! I'm out of commission for another 3 weeks. It's killing me.

Do you all use your hunting arrows while stump shooting or do you have a separate set specifically for stumps? Thank you.

I have a set of Aluminum 2016s I use just for stumping. I actually foot about 2 inches with a piece of 2215 aluminum shaft.
The same way you would foot carbons. But i'm a diehard aluminum guy.

I foot as well, and shoot rubber blunts over top 9mm or 38/357 casings.  Brings tip weight up to broad head weight.

On another forum they stated that 2413 fit snug over any 22xx shaft.

Do you all use your hunting arrows while stump shooting or do you have a separate set specifically for stumps? Thank you.

When I make a dozen arrows I leave six shafts unstained, and after applying several coats of polyurethane to all,  I just fletch up as normal and make sure to use red fletching on the unstained shafts and save those for stump shooting. The bare shafts are practically white and very easy to see and retrieve, and the red fletchings help distinguish them in your back quiver from your hunting shafts (when you're carrying them). Oh, and blunts on the stump shafts always.


Then, I always carry a few stump shafts in my quiver when big game hunting because there are frequent squirrel/pheasant opportunities and the red feathers help quickly distinguish which shafts are blunts or broadheads, and the bare wood then helps afterwards with finding the arrows again.
