Now I'm not saying that they wouldn't easily kill a deer because they would. But a high hit like from a tree stand without a pass through leaves a very sparce blood trail as the animal usually bleeds out internally. My suggestion would be a cut on contact broadhead like the Magnus Stinger, Slick Trick Viper Trick, or Muzzy Phantom. With my choice being the Viper Trick.
Well said bronko. I agree completely. Go with a better fixed blade head, or cut on contact head for your setup.
