Title: Broadheads
Post by: Farmer72 on April 24, 2021, 01:23:40 PM
So I haven't archery hunted in several years and am looking to get back into it. Now that Washington allows mechanical heads I was just curious as to what people were using. I might just use the ones I have (Crimson Talon XT) for this year as I have 12 new in the package still but may change it up if I hunt more with the bow.

Slick Trick viper tricks for me. My setup is 65lbs firing a 430g arrow 275fps, not a hot rod by any means, but I still get mostly passthroughs with them and good blood trails. Two years ago my 125g viper trick penetrated my bear from the throat and out the back of the ham for an end to end passthrough. It only ran 20yds.

For deer Iíd use anything that was sharp and flew well with a good reputation. For elk I would never use an expandable just due to the fact that you lose penetration and the majority of them have flimsy blades. Yes some guys are very successful with them, but I see no reason to take that chance on the sole thing that actually kills the animal.

Fixed heads are still considered the best heads for penetration and reliability. Unless you canít figure out how to tune a bow and just want something that might fly more like a field point then expandable are for you. Just go smaller cutting dia.

Get yourself true, COC broadheads like the Magnus Stinger and never have to worry about your BHís doing their job.

Strickland Helix for me.  Great at quick kills.  Durable as heck and I can resharpen them for the next bull.

I will have to look at the RAD and see what they have. I am pretty sure I am just going to use the Crimson Talons I have for this year and the muzzy's I carry for grouse.

Personally, I shoot the Magnus Black Hornet Ser Razors.  If you are looking for mechanical, I'd suggest taking a look at Grim Reaper.

Slick Trick magnums

I have used these for at least 10 years and have harvested several deer with them, all were 1 shot one kill. Unfortunately, I have had a hard time finding replacement blades so I have switched to NAP Spitfire MAXX 125gr. The only deer I ever lost was with these 2 years ago so I'm still up in the air about their performance. I hit bone, heard the crack but she was scared off when the group ran off into the corn and trees, found only a couple blood drops. If they fail me this year it's back the Slick Tricks.

Which broad head Rad Archery is good for deer?

Almost any of the broadheads on the market today will do their job if you do yours. Find a broadhead that flies good out of your setup and shoot it enough to be confident when the moment of truth presents itself.

Which broad head Rad Archery is good for deer?
any of them are good options. I've taken animals with the ticon, rival, and mad man heads. The ticon is my go to but the delmastro or mad man with the low profile solid blades are scary quiet which is a big bonus for spooky whitetails or switched on mule deer.
