    I think this continues to be their best all around head. The 1 3/8" penetrates like a fixed head but has a little bit more cut. It's great on all game in North America with the right set up. The Reaper was designed by elk hunters.

    Old technology that is proven to work.

    No sense in attempting to reinvent the wheel.

    Here is my experience. I had a cow elk down that was still alive when I found her. I decided to finish her off instead of letting her suffer, so I drilled her in the back of the head with one of these broadheads. I wanted to see how these heads performed on bone and wanted to end things quickly.

    The result was the head started to open and the blades became like the legs on a tripod and stopped that arrow dead with just the tip of the broadhead through the bone. I was shooting 70# and took that shot from maybe 7-8 yards away. I don't have any pictures to back this up, but it is the honest truth. IMO I would not feel justified shooting this head at a large (elk sized) animal.

    Well what did you expect shooting into the thick skull of an Elk? Bone Head move. No pun intended.

    Only thing you did right was not take pictures, poor elk.

    In the video we talk about grim reaper along with the durability 'test' that occurred. On a side note my hog outfitter recently shot thru a 100lb hog and had the same thing occur...his bolt is still in south carolina tree root. If you have questions or need pricing feel free to pm us or shoot us a email at eric@beanoutdoors.com or call/text 336.564.2400 We typically stock the full line of Grim Reaper!

    Well I dont make it a habit of shooting Big game in the head with a bow so I guess I wouldnt know what heads perform well in this instance. I do know that grim reapers tear mean ass holes through deer and bear when you send one through the boiler room. I just dont agree with shooting an animal in the head with a bow.

    I used to shoot them and they performed great for me. I have been shooting other heads because I really like rear deploy and large entries but the Reapers mean what they say, "Watch em' drop"! Seen these pics on another forum...


    There will be haters, doubters, unbelievers and then there will be you proving them wrong

    Just checked out their FB page and they have some cool pics...

    I feel I need to respond since several of you are not happy with my post. The elk in question had already been shot through one lung and the diaphragm and was already dying. I hate to come upon elk still alive after a decent shot, but elk are tough animals and it happens. With that I am not one to sit back and watch them and let nature take it's course. I also never shoot something in the head while I am hunting, this was a finishing shot, NOT hunting. The head is too tough of a target and the chance for wounding something is too great, so if you had this opinion of me then I am sorry for the misinformation.

    With that being said, I also like to try out my equipment (arrow weight, different heads, etc) on game with a finishing shot. I want to know how different setups work on the "worst" shot you could make. The question is not "do broadheads kill", (they all do on a perfect shot). My question is which is the best setup for me! I like to know how my setup would work on a horrible shot so I know it will work on a great shot.

    So, the worst shot I can make is on straight bone. Now you could say "Why don't you just shoot the front shoulder or put another arrow in it's lungs?" My question back to you is "Why destroy more meat?" and "What would I learn from this?" You can only learn so much from shooting wood targets, I am trying to learn from the real thing.

    I will not post any more on this subject. There are too many posts here on AT with two people hashing it out. If you disagree with me . . . So be it.

    Thanks for the picture Timmy . . . I had not seen that one.
