RADAR,
Most posts I make are meant to help the hunters who may be looking for good advice or recommendations about things that I have experienced. I know that MANY readers on this forum have much experience in all types of hunting, while many more are still in their early years of bowhunting.

I write posts because I have been bowhunting for a quarter century. While I am certain that most do not care wether or not I have killed several P/Y bucks, or triple digit bow kills, I guess it is important to establish some form of "credentials" in an effort to gain confidence with those who read my posts.

I, like you I'm sure, TRULY desire to help save some of the frustration that I experienced in my earlier years while trying to learn effective harvest skills. Of all the "ingredients" combined to make CONSISTENTLY SUCCESSFUL and humanely as possible bow kills, I think NOT ONE THING is as important as the hunters broadhead. Afterall, in the end, THE BROADHEAD IS what ultimately KILLS the deer.

The sharpest...
widest.....
most accurate...


(and maybe, at least in my case...affordable)

Radar,
Truer words have never been spoken.

But in reality...what often happens is a far cry from a well placed shot! It isn't necessarily the fault of the bowhunter. Sometimes things just happen. A step taken, the un-seen branch or twig, wind, rain, you know what I mean. Sometimes things just happen!

When possible, the largest, sharpest hole put "almost anywhere" in a deer will put it down quicker than the counterparts smaller hole!

I agree , but I have also seen dozens of threads about less than perfect shots that were blamed on broadheads .
Rage heads are good mechanicals , but I think they are over hyped . They don't perform miracles .

Again...right on.

Not only have I seen and read where hunters blame broadheads for losing deer, but also I've seen them lose deer because they thought they didn't need, or know, how lethal the shots they made really were.

There is NO CURE for poor preparation!
