NAP Killzone 100. Deer #4- ran 50 yards Entrance hole.



Closeup of entrance hole. You can imagine the exit hole. Have killed four so far, three and a turkey with the same head. best mech. I have ever shot.



NO NOT use the heaviest you can find. Use the one that shoots the best. For deer here, 100-grains is plenty. For years, I shot 125 gr. here and 150 for bear and moose. You accomplish nothing by wasting KE. Arrow goes through, that is all you need. usually, you will find the lighter loads shoot better. Either way, shoot what works for your setup.

i have learned with fixed broad heads they can steer the arrow if the diameter is bigger than 13/16"th cuts with that said i would use and do use mechanicals like grim reapers their whitetail special is a 2" cut after they deploy, i believe you will like them they fly like a field point but hold up good and kill quick. most deer only go less than 30 yards once you put the arrow in the heart lung area. good luck with your quest.
