Archery Sniper was right!

Recommended Posts

Big Country

Archery Sniper has spoken here several times on the accolades of slick trick broad heads. Last night I found out why. 7pm a good doe comes to the tree I'm in and I let the arrow fly. Double lunged her. She went all of 35 yards and did the death dance right in front of me that all of us long to see. Blades were intact. Could hear the arrow as it cracked through the rib cage. Upon retrieval I discovered that the entrance and exit holes left a perfect X hole. She wasn't going anywhere except to my freezer. I am sold on slick tricks. Thanks Snipe!

Yep! Love Slick Tricks! With all the rage about the "Rage", and all the downfalls one reads regarding the "Rage", no one talks much about Slick Tricks, and whenever you read about them, it's all good!

Congrats on the doe!

No problem and congrats on a great archery deer.

I have shot the slick tricks through a lot of stuff and they always hold up. The only thing that has failed in any of the tests I have done was the arrow itself and that was shooting a concrete block at 10 yards. 2c

The only thing I've had fail on me with the slick tricks is I've had 2 of the blades on my designated practice heads break. Both times it was the blade with the open slot (the one you put in the tip first when assembling). But I believe they only broke because they have been shot hundreds of times into a target and the ground a few times blush

Quick rookie question - when you shoot broadheads into targets, do you pull them back out from the "front", or pull them through (basically pulled the fletch through the target, or do you unscrew the broadhead, then pull out, then put broadhead back on? I have a foam layered target and it didn't seem like I could get my American (came with bow) or my Thunderheads back through "backwards" without really putting pressure on them, so i unscrewed them and pulled arrow out. Thanks for advice!

I always just pulled them straight out unless the broadhead went all the way through then I'd screw them off. Its a lot easier on your target to take them off. Broadheads will chew up a target pretty fast in my experience either way.

1eye, no damage picture. Thought of it but wasn't sure if it was o.k. on the forum. I got her in the tree late that night as my shot was at 7pm. Only pics I have are real bad cell phone (flip phone) pictures. Not much for light. I did however take pictures the next day of a cooler full of ground up meat smile. Last year I used NAP blood runners, mechanical 2 blade. Was not happy with the noise they made and the deer I shot had a large slit in it. Obvious to me that a fixed blade that put's a hole the approximate size of a 20 gauge slug in a deer was a much better choice. Heading to Saskatchewan to chase snow devils the 28th for 10 days then it's back in the climber for mid October archery. Best darn time of the year!

Slick trick fan here too. I shoot the 100gr magnums. Went 3-3 last year. A set of replacement blades and we are back in business. I cant wait to get my first sit tonight.

If the broadhead is still in the target I pull them straight back through the front side, if the broadhead is sticking out of the target on the backside I pull out through the back.

Gotta be careful for your left hand if you have it on the target when pulling straight back out so the broadhead don't cut it. When pulling out the back gotta be careful of the hand on the arrow so it don't slip down right into the broadhead.

I'm trying some Slick Standards this season, have been a lifetime Muzzy fan up to this point. Also like what I'm seeing and hearing about the Exodus head.

Good to know about the blood runners. I was curious about those. I've been wanting to try different BHs.. Trying the Tru Fire T1s right now after reading good reviews and hearing nothing but good about them from guys who shoot them. However, haven't put one through a deer yet. Next, I want to try Slick Tricks and then the Exodus. My friend shot a doe last week with an Exodus and though the hole was just like any other, the blood was pretty good. Wicked sharp blades. But if slick tricks really do punch slug holes, I am really interested!

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
    • Borch
      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
    • Wanderer
      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!
    • Mlaker3
      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray 
    • monstermoose78
      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.
