what kind of broadhead do you guy use for bowhunting? expandable or fixed blade. i have these true fire expandables that the tip of the broadhead gets pushed in when it hits the deer and causes the blades to expand. any of you guys use something similar?
Check the laws where you want to hunt. Some funny laws out there on Broadheads. Like here in MN... The 2 blade Bloodrunner is too big. Can't be over 2".
Since that I have shot G5 Strikers. No disappointment other than I have broken a few hitting rocks, trees, wood, and other material they are not intended for.
This year I am headed to Colorado on an elk/mule deer hunt. My head of choice this year is the Viper Trick. That on the front of a Victory VAP 350, Stainless insert, 4" feathers. Arrow weight of 505 gr. Throw that out at 270FPS should work just fine.
All deer nothing else.
I've heard too many bad & good things about Rage. They either put a hole the size of a baseball in an animal or they never open at all from what my hunting buddies say that use them.
