Anyone every try the Flying Arrow Archery Toxic Broadhead? I can't find a lot of feedback on them but may go ahead and spend the $40 and buy a 3-pack. Right now I shoot the muzzy mx4 and they have never failed me.
That is one wicked looking broadhead and it would be very cool to see how it would perform here in Colorado, "BUT" it is illegal here.
Handheld bows, including compound bows, using arrows equipped with a broadhead with an outside diameter or width of at least 7/8ths of an inch with no less than two steel cutting edges. "Each cutting edge must be in the same plane throughout the length of the cutting surface."
These types of heads have not been allowed in Colorado for many, many years.
Sorry Quinton I wasn't more specific . You are correct. I also hunt whitetails in SE Ohio and that is what I am going to use them for. They are a really wicked looking broadhead. Really I just want to test shoot them to ensure they fly okay and then have my 79 year old Dad use them with his same bow/arrow set-up.
Dad has yet to hit the side of a barn with these toxic broadheads yet alone a buck or doe! We sighted them in on a target and the next day Dad is shooting under or over deer. I gave Dad some same arrows with muzzy regular broadheads and the next day he has a doe down. Not happy with these toxic broadheads right now. I'm tuning my bow to these to see if the issue is other than Dad's shooting. Right now I think we need to go back to our usual Muzzy broadheads that have not failed us. I will update.
I recently completed my first skull plate mount of my buck antelope from the 2010 season. I used a kit from Van Dykes, and I thought I would pass along the tips my dad shared with me, as well as one or two I figured out on my own. I have only completed the one antelope kit, but these tips should work for kits for other species as well.
1. Leave as much depth to the skull as possible when you remove the antlers/horns from the skull of the animal. This...
