Default have you noticed broadhead performance on all the new hunting videos

I've noticed lately, well I've watched all the new Drury videos and the new primetime 10, that the about 90% of shots that are made on deer and not in this new videos are not full penetration. the arrow hits and stays in the deer. From what i can tell they are using expandables. i think that sucks for them. I want 2 holes in my deer.

Haven't got a chance to see any of them yet, still here in Kuwait/Iraq but then I will watch them. But I agree I want two holes also! [&:]

It's those expandables, and stuck on little, super light arrows that they use in order to get a higher arrow speed.

Give me a heavy arrow with a cut-on-contact or fixed bladewith enough momentum to punch all the way thru any day. I want to find my arrows sticking in the ground on the other side of the deer, blood from tip to nock.

I have the same videos and I said the same thing, very few pass-troughs. I wasn't sure why, but there was a lot of deer with only one hole in them.

At first I thought that Drury was because they were shooting a slower bow, but once I seen it was a Hoyt I thought surely that it should have gone all the way through. Must be the broadhead.

If you seen all the new Drury DVD it looked to me to be about 50% on Pass-thru or not.
But I do have to say and Mark says it all the time big cutting power 2in" his big six he called it which really had 10 points, but any-way that arrow looked to only go in 8-10in but the hitdeer made a half circle and dropped 20 yards from the tree.
I think that is just as good as having a 1inch or less hole from a fixed and having the deer run 100 yards or more with/without a blood trail.

Actually from what I have seen(on mosthunting shows)on the camera shots where they are drawing the bowor just have the arrown nocked and talking to the camera it looks like they are almost always using fixed blade broadheads. and I say this because I always look to see what they are shooting.

I shoot expandables with a 64# and a 28 inch draw and haveNEVER NOT had a pass-through, However that being said I recently had my bow tuned and shot some fixed blades with excellent accuracy, so i may hunt with fixed this year simply because I have never killed a deer with a fixed. I kinda want to see the difference first hand. Who knows I may switch over for life after this year.

Good Hunting Guys

Just for the sake of debate, I offer that the distance the deer runs is less a result of broadhead type and more a result of the hundreds of other circumstances surrounding the shot. Terrain, deer's nervousness prior to the shot, is he on a familiar trail? Too many to list.

Just because it'sa hoyt doesnt mean they're shooting 70# and 300fps, they, like many other pros may be shooting 55# @ 240fps. *shrugs* heck if I know. There is no telling what the case may be.

But I'm still going to shoot fixed blades.

I have not seen any of their recent videos so I don't know what they are shooting as far as broadheads go. In the past I have seen them shoot some expandables, I think they were NAP Spitfires which aren't a two inch cut so perhaps they changed heads.

I have shot a number of deer with a mech that yielded a two inch cut. Most have been pass throughs with rigs producing anywhere from 65 to 70 pounds of Kinetic energy.

One of the deer that I didn't get a pass through with the big cutting headworried me greatly. It did not appear as if I got very much penetration as the buck ran away with the arrow sticking out of it's ribs. When I gotdown there was a tremendousblood trail to follow. About 90 yards later I found the buck expired arrow still in him. Autopsy showed only one lung was hit and no other vitals; but the hole was massive, the bleeding profuse.I had never seen a single lung deer brought down in such a manner before nor since.

I am still not sure why I got so little penetration in comparison to other times. There are so many variables in a hunting situation that are uncontrollable that a lot of the testing we do is irrelevant to what we are attempting to accomplish. But of course the information we gather from it is still valuable.

...Come to think of it what this whole post has to do with the Dury boys issueI know not. If it hadn't taken me so long to put all this down I wouldn't even post it....What an idiot...
