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.

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.

      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
