Found an arrow in my front yard
#1
I'm not an archer so don't know much (a little but not much).

When the snow melted and I was cleaning up a few debris, I found an arrow in the front yard. In very good condition.

What can you tell me about it:

Target tip, wrapped around the shaft it has ICS Bowhunter 340 with "Carbon" at the top an Bem(Triangle)n at the bottom. 2 yellow flights and one white one with "Don't Tread on Me" and coiled snake on it.

I'll probably just display it on the wall below my old SXS shotgun as a decoration.

Looks like it's about a 30 dollar arrow that weighs 340 grains.

What's the tip weigh, in grains?

What's the arrow length measured from the bottom of the knock to the cut end of the arrow?

The make is Beman, not a bad arrow to shoot.
Someone in your neighborhood must be into archery and missed the target by a long shot.

That would be my guess as well.

Was there a zombie invasion over the winter you forgot to mention?

Im no archery expert but I'm pretty sure that arrow came off the front side of one SERIOUS bow. At 430 grains total weight, and figuring 5 grains per pound of draw weight you're looking at at probably an 80lb bow.

I'll have to see what I'm running, I forget.

I'd be concerned that someone shot a fucking arrow into your yard, and either didn't know that they did, or tjeybknew but never told you.

When I was a pre-teen I discovered my dad's old recurve bow in the basement along with a few arrows. He had previously shown me how to string it by using my leg/body so I was able to do that before heading out to the yard for some target practice.

Once I grew bored with that I decided to see how far up into the sky an arrow would fly.

I don't recall being very impressed with the height of the climb, but it was impressive how it stuck in the roof of the house. (ranch one story)
Fortunately for my ass (which escaped a beating by keeping my mouth shut about it until I was an adult), there was a ladder laying out by the house and I was able to get on the roof and pull it out without anyone knowing.

EM, this is why we can't have lawn darts. This is why we can't have nice things.

30" arrow is what I run, which means your mystery archer is more than likely over 6' tall.
