You want mechanical or traditional. I've been using Slick Tricks and Grim Reapers. Got some Slick Trick Nukes a few weeks back that seem promising. I like the hell Razors too. Never tried any of the G5s I might pick some up for next month, and see how they stick into a piggy. :)

Any BH through the vitals will kill a deer. Shot placement is far more important than any BH choice. There are certain BH's that may work better for a shoulder shot (ie a fixed blade head) and there are certain BH's that will work better for a gut shot deer (ie large mech). If you plan on making a bad shot, you need to consider where that bad shot may take place. If you plan on making a good shot, it doesn't matter what BH you use.

 

You are going to read a million different things about this head or that head that didn't work, when the truth of the matter is the person made a bad shot and needs to blame something. But hey, that is what society is teaching people these days, always blame someone or something other than yourself.

 

Okay, off my soap box.

Im shooting magnus stingers at the moment (lifetime warrenty) but ive shot grimm reapers, slick tricks, abc sonics and have been pleased with them all.

 

The only head I hated was a rage.

My regs regarding mechanicals "Broadheads with retractable blades are legal. Broadheads with mechanical blades are legal if the blades DO NOT form a barb or hook when the arrow is pulled from the flesh of a deer or bear"

Hold up. Y'all can hunt bear in New York!?!

Clayton, may I come hunt with you? I'll bring you a pack of broad heads! They won't let us so much as fart in the general direction of a bear in Alabama.

I'm certain counties yes the counties I hunt no. All the places I have access to have bear and bob cats both are illegal to hunt and trap. Same goes for using a rifle it's shot gun and .22 or smaller only unless deer season is closed so my .243 stays inside oct-dec.

Mainly Slick Trick Standards but I also use grim reapers.  One BH I've been wanting to check out is VPA vented and non-vented.

Just got two packs of Toxic's in today. These are some evil looking things. I'm gonna try one on the foam block when I get home. I believe these will do very bad things to the friendly furry forest creatures.

Yeah, but they do the job. Break them shoulders and bust them lungs. Shooting from my PSE at 70#s and 30in DL. They are dang near passing through the target block at 30 yards. 20 yards they are passing through.

Just ordered some toxics by flying arrow. Two of the full timers here at the armory are shooting them and showed me the videos on YouTube and pics. Holy crap are they nasty punching a hole in a 55gal drum both sides with a giant hole. It's a coring broad head but not like traditional ones. All I know is I can't wait till October.

SO, do you do a lot of 55gal drum hunting? ;)

 

J/K, I actually have some on order. Very interesting head. I plan on using one on an early season doe to see how impressed I am. Kind of leery on the small 7/8 diameter, but I think the coring aspect may make up for that.

I was just checking those toxics out, and if your hunting jugs or drums ( with an 80# bow ) you'd be fine. I find it a little funny that I couldn't find one video of someone taking a deer with them. I don't see them doing all that great with a deers shoulder blade, but I could be wrong. I think that I'll stick with the G5-T3s

The toxics were not released till just recently. There hasnt been any deer season that is open since the release.

Ahh ok, please post up some results once you guys get them. I'm anxious to see how they perform on a actual hunting setup, shooting around 60 or so pounds instead of the 80# in the barrel shot. I'd also like to know how they fly compared to a field point, this is one of the main reason I shoot the T3s. They flatout fly awesome and put the deer in the dirt, and they're way more consistent then a rage (as far as the blades all deploying)...
