UT,
PM me when you get an arrow through one. If you don't see it fall and need a little "verbal support", I might be able to help.

And Radar, about the broadheads, one of the BEST heads is a 2 inch COC, rearward deploying (looses less energy on deployment), mechanical shot out of a WELL tuned bow.

OR...a Muzzy.

OR...a Thunderhead!

OR...any head that goes through BOTH lungs of a deer, about mid lung.

BUT...I like ECONOMICAL value.

I like to shoot often. At deer, turkey, coyote.

And I simply am too cheap to shoot expensive heads.

If I can find FREE heads, that work very effectively, that is what I shoot.

That is why I shoot Magnus Stinger 4 blade COC fixed.

But...(again with the buts) I highly value your opinion. Especially when it comes to bows and equipment. I know you know your stuff.

Jumped a big shooter this morning after the hunt from the stand on the first day of the Mo. Season . He was no more than 100 yards from my truck and bedded only 30 yards from a well traveled access drive . Lesson learned , I should have just walked back to the truck instead of scouting along the drive to see where they were crossing . Biggest buck I have seen while hunting in Mo. So far . Just hope I didn't bump him out of the area , but they are used to the landowners in the area.
Good luck to everyone this season . Shoot the broadhead you have confidence in , and put it in the vitals !

Going to go buy some new heads tomorrow. I am torn between the nap killzones and the schwackers. I have used nap products in the past with success, thunderheads and spitfires. Every nap product hit just like my field points in the past. Has anyone shot both and have an opinion? Great thread by the way!


I can say this about ThunderHeads, they don't weight what they claim and I called them on it and it was confirmed. A 100 weighs 106-8, that's 6% more. It is a difference enough to make flight change from points to heads and also why I'm not all that concerned about the two hitting the same spot. Just saying you could experience a change in flight with the killzone and that could be the reason why, still could be a killing machine.

At times it appears 102 comes across as cocky, arrogant and whatever you want to think. in the past I have felt the same way. I now look at him as trying to get across his experiences so other people learn not to make mistakes he may have made in the past. I am sure he will admit he doesn't know everything but him and his hunting buddies have a lot of experience. Now, when he starts chasing gut shot deer like Bowriter and name dropping we can all kick him in the nuts but until then I will try to learn what I can.


x2 on 102, Rich.

I think this is my 43 consecutive bow season. I've seen a lot of changes and waded through a lot of bs during those years. You learn to recognize knowledge. When 102 and Radar speak about bows and bow hunting, I listen and learn.


I haven't been around any of you enough to know what you know, but I do know he's right about sharpness. Rapid blood lose is the key to a short track job and razor sharp is the best at doing that.

There is nothing sharper than a broken toilet believe it or not and if anyone is ever cut by one you won't know it till you see the blood flowing rapidly all over. Razor sharp is it.

Yeah! Beyond scary sharp is the only way. Blade thickness being next.

You guys do realize we've been arguing this for no real reason. Tennessee size whitetail deer are like shooting through a wet paper bag. Our average doe is what, 70-80 lbs field dressed? Our biggest bucks might go 150 field dressed...MIGHT. I dare say the average 2-3 yr old TN buck is 125-130 lbs. I've killed 2 that scored in the upper 120s and one in the 130s that field dressed what they scored lol

A well placed .177 cal pellet from an air rifle will kill one. I've killed two so far with just knives. You ain't lived til you've tried to put down a car hit deer that you think is about already dead...that comes back to fight for every ounce of life left in it.

What concerns me most are hearing and seeing more hunters making statements like "just put an an arrow in it somewhere and the Rage will take care of the rest". Usually made after they completely gut shoot one.

Such an emphasis on sharpness and cutting diameter, when a flint arrowhead got the job done well. lol As the saying goes, maybe its the indian and not the arrow or maybe its the margin of error that keeps decreasing as broadheads keep getting more efficient. Whatever it might be, I'll be shooting rages again this year and maybe switching to Ol Hanks Swackers.
