I went and bought a couple 6 packs of Muzzys just in case. Rage heads are stupid expensive, I hope they don't take Muzzy down that path.

I shot Rage for a few years, really liked them but got scared when one didn't open on a doe. She didn't last long because of shot placement but it made be nervous about using the heads.

I have 3 blade Muzzys and 2 blade Rages. I like both. I don't get it, though? So the company that makes Rages was already named Muzzy and now they bought Muzzy? I work in PR and Communications and that release is confusing to me. Maybe its just family members or friends transferring ownership rights?

The first name mentioned (Muzzy Outdoors) has either got to be a typo (s/b Feradyne Outdoors) or Feradyne added a layer called Muzzy Outdoors in preparation of, or once they acquired, Muzzy Products. I agree, confusing. More hunting time for Michelle

i won't argue with you there....there were "some" issues like 4+ years ago. but the evolution of the head has really changed it in a lot of big ways! The Tip is way better now and the hex screw makes changing out the blades a breeze compared to the old push pin. I'll give you one and let you try it if you want to smile

I bought a set of the new chisle tip rage for bear pretty excited to tip my x-bow with them. Went to their web site an saw they had a head for x-bow with a cut on contact tip, not sure about those for a heavily mucled boned bear, sen to many picture of a cut on contact tip bent after the shot. this new chisle tip looks great to crush thru ribs.

Keep them Rage broadheads! Murphy's Law doesn't need any help with a failed mechanical broadhead! Every deer I shot with Muzzy's went into the freezer! 2c

I have shot the Muzzy 3 blade for years and they do not disapoint.

Few years back I also used some Rage heads and they also are awesome. I cannot believe the hole they put in a deer and the blood trail.

Looks like my Fav fixed head just got ingaged to my fav expandable.

      The pups and I put on 10.5 miles today and flushed 3 hens, 2 grouse and I killed a pine tree, 1 rooster flushed wildly 100 yards to left of us. It sure was fun to get out and seeing some birds. We did jump a good number of deer.

      A couple of Facebook posters on Lake Vermilion Cabin Owners group said that there was still open water in Big Bay Friday Morning.  I am guessing that they may be talking about Oak Narrows.  I'm staying with my original freeze-over date of Thursday, December 1.   Somebody I know who went out fishing from McKinley Park Saturday said that Big Bay was frozen over.  He also said he walked all around the bay and found thicknesses of 1" to 5" of ice, so it is still very questionable.  It should be safe for walking by the middle of next week.   This site will have ice reports for the next week or so.  I will be up the middle of next week and should report on the ice by Thursday night.  The moderator has merged this topic with the Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports topic so I will switch to posting there when I have fishing reports.  Good luck fishing, but be very careful of varying ice conditions.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!

      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too

      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆
