I shot a large doe opening day Sat. evening, quartering away. Hit the off shoulder after a good pass through, the deer ran about 20 yards with the arrow befor it completely fell out. When I found the arrow I looked at the Montec and the very tip about 1/16" was broke off. This is the first year I have used this broadhead and wondered if this was normal. My set up is as follows, Mathews SB XT 62lbs 29' draw, 27 1/4" Easton Axis FMJ with the 100gr. Montecs. The deer was a lasered 14yds. After processing the deer I found that the front shoulder was completely shattered. The head did its job killing the deer very quickly but I was supprised at the breakage of the tip.
