I usually start about a month before season and I usually shoot a lot. I will shoot 3 or 4 arrows at a time but different spots on a target. A target normally only lasts me two years and it's junk.

Single best argument for the Montec practice head. I hammer those poor things.


I find nothing more dangerous than pulling a real broadhead from a target. I sliced my pants so bad once. Only nicked myself in the process, but it could have been an ER visit.

You have to be careful when playing with "Pointy Sticks"  :lol:

I do the same. I have to make a slight elevation adjustment for my broadheads (Trophy Taker Shuttle-T's), so I wait until right before the season opener to switch over. Two bulls in two years, so I'm not changing a thing!

I am as well interested in how they work out for you. Ive looked at a few upper level broadheads. That price tag though!   Let us know!

They came a day early. Had to stop weed eating to look at them!

I couldnt stand it any more. Two shots at 30 yards, first was Iron Will,second fp. About 1 1/4 to the left. More than likely me.
I didnt notice any whistle from the head and it flew awesome. Ill play with it a little more today, but I think Ive found my new, last broadhead.

I thought my Kudupoints were pricey. $39.95 for three. On a side note, I hadn't shot them yet so I took one out and tried it just now. At 30 yds. it hit just about an inch higher than the field point and dead center at 50. As usual, My hits started spreading a little as I started to get a little tired after a couple of dozen shots but feel real good about them. :clap:

$650 for a elk tag, $600 for fuel and a couple hundred more for miscellaneous. Spending $35 dollars for the thing that gets the job done doesnt quite seem so bad and has a no BS lifetime guarantee. MHO.

HaHa. In the grand scheme of things cost really doesn't matter if it works. I'm just a cheap old guy. Imagine how excited I am now that I turned 65. Combo fish/hunting license is $11.75 and elk tag is $16.50. I live in and near some decent units so I feel you on the travel costs. If I had those Iron Wills, I probably wouldn't shoot at a grouse. Good Luck out there!
