Thus, a narrower broadhead, producing a smaller wound channel, may be necessary. Also due to higher velocity, shorter arrows and increased vibration, overdraws are more critical of bow torquing and release technique. A mechanical release is a near necessity. You should understand the special require- ments of overdraw and consider both its advan- tages and limitations to make a decision. ng angles We all know that an arrow's low velocity re- sults in a curved trajectory and that arrow drop is a steeply-gaining curve at longer ranges. For example, a range estimation error of only 8 percent and a 35-yard hold on a 38-yard buck will probably miss the vital zone. (Military tests prove that a 17 percent range-estimation error is average for trained observers). Changing the angle affects calculating arrow trajectory. Steep angles cause arrows to hit higher. Archers seldom shoot up but "tree standers" nearly always shoot down. The physical geometry is that the diagonal distance is irrelevant to the arrow. A buck that is 20 yards away (diagonally) and 45 degrees be- low you is only about 14 yards away horizontal- ly and that's how you should hold. With steeply arching arrow trajectories, good range estimation is critical. A range-finding de- vice is boon to bow hunters. Penetration Deep arrow penetration is important to bow hunters. For maximum tissue damage and to create entrance and exit holes in the hide which produce the best blood trail, a broadhead must pass completely through the animal. Penetration depends on several factors. One is how much energy the arrow has. From the same bow, a heavy arrow produces more energy than a light arrow, however, this difference is often exaggerated. There is only a 5 percent dif- ference in penetrating energy between a very light 400-grain arrow and a heavy 600-grain ar- row shot from the same 60-pound bow. More important to penetration is the draw weight of your bow, how well the arrow flies and broadhead style. Shoot the maximum draw weight you can shoot well. Be sure your arrows are tuned to fly without energy-wasting wobble and shoot a streamlined, low-friction broadhead that cuts nearly to the nose. What's on the sharp end of your arrow and how well will it penetrate? Traditional broadheads-offer plenty of pene- tration potential. These come in two, three and four-blade models.

Ptx:o I Mary Kameen West Lassen runners win race By Mary  West Staff Writer The Chester/Lake Almanor Chamber of Commerce hosted its 21st annual 5K Fun Run and Fun Walk as the lead off event for the 4th of July. Entrants totaling 310 from all over California and Nevada started converging on the Collins Pine lawn at 7 a.m. in preparation for the 8:30 a.m. race. The proceeds from this event go to recreation in the Basin and earlier this year, the Chamber made a generous do- nation of $1,000 to the newly formed Almanor Recreation and Park District (ARPD). Knowing they would again share in the proceeds, ARPD board members John Goolsby, Alex Willhoit, Cheri McIntire and Kate West were there to man registration and T-shirt tables. Gary Kluge, who has in past years, been the main man be- hind the planning for the runs, maintained the time clock. Colorful T-shirts were in- cluded with the registration fee and medals were awarded for the first two places in each age category. The 2000-2001 Chamber Pres- ident Tim O'Brien started the race and announced the win- ners. Tim McIntire assisted O'Brien with the awarding of the medals. Entrants were divided into nine separate age brackets, go- ing from age 10 and under, all the way up to age 70 and over. First place overall male -- Jesse McLeod with a time of 17:23.
