I've shot muzzy practice blades into my Block layered target and the penetration is virtually the same.

However, I still wouldn't do it. I think it's a principle thing.

Use the Muzzy BH with a Muzzy Grasshopper. Then you've got the best of both worlds.

I don't really know you so I can't call you stupid!

In Massachusetts that would be a game law violation.

I was thinking maybe using real blades that I have used for practice might be good for turkeys. I might touch up the tip and maybe give the blades a stroke or two with the Gatco system.... no wait, I'm back to having sharp broadheads. Nevermind...

OK, I know this one is WAAAAAAAY to easy for some of you and I will read your responses with a grin but I do have a question that may be considered pretty stupid. Can I use Muzzy practice blades to shoot a turkey? I think my bow produces enough kinetic energy to get the trocar tip to penetrate well and then the dull practice blades will stop the shaft from passing through. Has anyone ever tried this? I called the local game warden and he said it would be legal because it is not a feild point. Sometimes I think too much.



Just don't tell the turkey,, he might practice he's dead!!!

Save the arrow tips and just throw rocks. It worked for Jethro when he went squirrel hunting.

Make it a clean kill and use the right tools.
