    G5 sgh

    I have shot 4 squirrels so far with the g5 small game heads and WOW they cause some serious damage. I had one almost rip a squirrel in half! Is everyone else having good luck with these also? Anyone have any pics of the damage they cause?

    I've been using them for 5 or 6 years on squirrels, rabbits and chipmunks. I have ripped chipmunks in half with them and killed rabbits out to 40 yards. They shoot accurately and I haven't lost an arrow yet.

    I can not believe that it stops your arrow with no damage.

    i broke the first one i ever shot, shot a squirell off the side of a tree, and it broke a finger off. after that, i shot a rabbit in my yard, and found they dont stop as well in grass as judo tips.

    otherwise, they fly well, and kill better

    Yea I haven't had any arrows lost or damaged either. I even shot one and pinned the squirrel to the base of a tree and I figured I had atleast lost the BH and maybe cracked the arrow but it the head stopped it from going far into the tree and I pulled it out with two fingers and it didn't hurt the arrow at all. I was shocked!

    I shot a huge ground hog this spring with one and watched the arrow bounce off the critter! But they do work good on bunnies

    Try the VPA Thumpers. Similar concept, but machined steel. The feet won't break off.

    I shot a woodchuck out of a tree with one a couple weeks ago. Hit him right in the side of the head. Arrow bounced off and the woodchuck hit the ground like a ton of bricks. I walked over to him and when I went to pick him up he flipped over and ran away!

    Shot a big coon that had been crapping up my treestand the other night at 13 yds, right between the eyes!............ Holy mother of bone crushing fury, Batman! This head is incredible! That coon's head felt like a bag of gravel and broken glass when you squeezed it a little. The impact did break one of my Firenocks though, dang it!

    I shot a deer this morning with one, 36yds head on from the ground but he was slightly downhill from me. It appeared to have an entrance and exit wound at first but I found the back half of the arrow about 10 yds from the POI with no blood at all and while gutting and reaching around for any remaining organs I felt something slick and it was the rest of the shaft with BH intact...slightly nudged between a couple ribs. I assume it was sticking out a tad and when he went down it pushed it back in ??? I probably wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it...much less if someone typed it on here. Still can't quite believe it myself

    NOW.. I cannot justify what I did but let me say I realize the irresponsibility of my actions and it shouldn't happen again. I just pulled the wrong arrow out of the quiver, plain and simple. I had already shot another deer about an hour earlier and a squirrel while I was walking to it...I was on my high horse I reckon and just wasn't paying attention. I'm surely not the first person this has happened to

    Conclusion....the SGH is a very mean point! Huge entry hole btw
