When you’re first starting out with your crossbow, you may not care about the weight of the arrow grain and how it can impact your hunt.
Especially if you’re just being pushed out into the field with a kit that pretty much comes pre-assembled. Once you gain more experience, you might start to wonder if there’s more efficient way to do things-Especially if you’ve gone home a couple times empty handed…
Well, let’s compare the differences between the two.
A hiking backpack has several jobs to fulfill while out on the trail…
It needs to hold all the gear you might need while out in the wilderness, it needs to be comfortable while doing so, and it needs to handle the ever changing elements you might experience while out on the trail.
Several brands such as Osprey make some packs that exceed most people’s expectations, but if you’re looking for a hiking pack that is geared towards the survivalist or the more advanced hiker.
Both brands offer a variety of quality packs to pick from, but the Badlands 2200 and the Eberlestock X2 are frequently compared to each other amongst hikers and hunters alike.
Their similarities make it difficult to pick from any of the two packs, so today we’ll compare the two, so you can determine which one is right for you (or if either pack is right for you).
Damaging your arrows is easy without the proper equipment.
When pulling an arrow out of a target, for most, your only option is to grasp the arrow from the shaft with your hand and try to yank it out. This can give you difficulty with an especially rooted arrow.
If an arrow is to deeply embedded into the target, trying to pull it out by hand can cause unnecessary stress on both your arm or arrows.
By wiggling a planted arrow, or if you don’t pull it out the same way it went in, the shaft of the arrow can bend causing its accuracy to degrade with each successive shot.
