    So I'm getting sighted in after adjusting my bow. Get the 20 yard dialed in, working on 30 yards. Last arrow, I'm drawed back, dropping the front end and it all came apart. Arrow went into the roof and about 5 feet in front of me. From the super duper high tech analysis of the aftermath, looks like my release had a material failure, resulting in the release coming apart and the resulting chaos and mayhem causing the bow string to fail. Let's just say that a hoot was had by all.

    Dude , good thing it wasn't a shot at a big buck and you had a broadhead in that bad boy. I can just see all kinds of bad things happening out in the woods with that breakage.... /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    What do you mean, exploded an arrow? On drawback or upon hitting the target?

    Do you know the hours of Blue Lake archery range?
