I've shot 100 grain Steelheads for quite a while and had no problem with them. They fly exactly like my field points.

I've used Rocket Wolverines and Wasp Jakhammers and both put meat in the freezer and racks on the wall. grin.gif

Usually about 7 to 9 bucks each in packs of 3.

there's no good mech. broadheads, and thats just my 2 cents!! Friends of mine swear by the Grime Reapers so I thought I would try them this year and I had a doe at 23yrds broadside feeding and the blades never even opened. We tracked her for along time and never came upon her.I know there will be people that will post "must have been a bad shot placement" well I was in a ground blind and the hunt is on film and the shot could not have been placed any better.The second deer has was at 8yrds and only got 3 inches of the arrow into him and it bounced out, (qurtering away from me) the only thing that we could tell on film was the arrow must have hit a rib and bounced out. So with that being said I'm back to my thunderheads for good!!Just my thoughts and experince with mech. heads--Good shootin' P.S. just so nobody thinks the equipment was lite I shoot a Matthews Outback set at 70pds

so if the same thing happened with a muzzy or a thunderhead or a rocky mountain bouncing out is it the fault of the broadhead? the blades sometimes go back after penetration. can you be sure it didn't open? Lots of people use expandables with no problems. The biggest buck of my life I messed up with a muzzy. Not gonna blame it on the head. I shoot 55 pounds, plenty speed to open them up.

What else could it have been? I've never had a thunderhead not blow through in 15yrs of bow hunting, so that(mech.) was the only thing I have to look at as being the cause.

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
