So i was bored tonight, i though what they heck i'll shoot a golf ball. So i pull out an arrow, and put a muzzy into it. I figured it would blow right through it, well i was wrong. It didnt make it through it, and it blew up my arrow. The insert and broadhead came out and the end of the arrow was shattered. So in conclusion, dont shoot at golf balls. Good example of what a bone on a deer might do though.

I have seen arrows stick right in the golf ball, its more fun when you shoot the arrow with the ball stuck on the end the arrows goes crazy

I guess we shouldn't hunt on a golf course.

I've seen several golf balls destroyed by my dogs, but I am actually quite suprised to see that Muzzy do that much damage to the golf ball. I know I am comparing apples to oranges, but once I shot a golf ball with a .38 special. It sent the golf ball about 30 yards away, but only left a shiny grey spot on the ball. That Muzzy is pretty impressive to me!:eek:

Impressive for the Muzzy head......

But I'd like to see a pic of the arrow too......if you haven't thrown it away.

They are tough to skin, but once done I hear you can make soup out of them... Need a lot though they are small.

Coolhand.. Try it with a 300 win mag... The results are slightly different.

What do you guys have against golf balls? What did they ever do to you? :(

I shot a golf ball two years ago just to see if it would go thru it. I placed the golf ball on the top of a plastic coke bottle right against my target. Shooting from 20 yds it took several attempts to perfectly center the golf ball, but once I did, the arrow penetrated thru the ball about 1" and the arrow snapped in half. By the way, I was using a field tip.
