Please for the love of god can we not make this a fixed vs expanadable, or any sort of argument/debate? Im just wondering what people are running because I am looking to change it up and not sure if I missed any for consideration.

So what are you shooting for a broadhead this year? What animals will you be hunting and whats your bow/arrow specs?

Have used slick Trick magnums for 10+ years. 2 elk, 3 moose, and ?? whitetails. That was with 70# bow. Switching to vipertricks this year because of an injury I'm only shooting 55# Just thought the 2 blade with a bleeder would be a little better at the lower poundage. Could be wrong but I'm going to try it.

Mechanical, Rocky Mountain Warheads. They have been very reliable for me. Fixed, Musacchia NBS 100’s. They shoot well for me. No kills with them yet.

Hard to beat a slick trick. I shoot the 125 gr viper tricks. Easton axis .260 spine, 75 grain brass insert up front, 4 Fletch aae max stealth vanes. Arrow comes in right at 600 grains total. Shooting a Hoyt Hyperforce at 70 lbs and 30.5” draw. I know I’ll probably catch hell for it on here, but I also used the same arrow out of my 60# mathews Creed last year to harvest a deer. Both set ups shoot lights out. I haven’t shot the creed past 40 yards, but the hyperforce groups the broadheads right with the field tips to 100 yards.

Hogs I hunt more than deer because it’s open year round. I use a Easton FMJ 340 5mm with a Carbon Express Pile Driver 150 grain COC. I use Q2I vanes.

For deer I like a Wasp Boss 100 grain 4 blade on a Carbon Express Red arrow 250 (400 spine) or 350 spine. Both shoot well.

Looks like all I'm hunting this year will be whitetail deer. No trip to Africa due to the virus.
So, I'll be grabbing some of my 356 gr, total arrow weight CX Maxima Blue 250s, putting some Grim Reaper 1 3/8" Razorcuts on and go hunt.
Too early to tell what bow I will be shooting then but it will be about 60 lbs, and a 28" dl
