Default Shooting a grouse w/ arrow

If the opportunity presents it self, I may try to take a grouse w/ my bow this fall. Any suggestions as far as if I can/should use a field tip or old broadhead?
Just curious what others may have tried..

Thanks in advance!!

I always have a couple of rubber blunts in my quiver for grouse. They kill them dead and don't damage too much meat. And if you lose one which is hopefully attached to a cheap arrow, you're not crying about it. It would be a waste to use a broadhead.

Oh yeah and blunts are great for shooting stumps when you're bored.. just don't get too close!

I tooka bigBlue grouseyears ago on a classic shot from the ground.. the bird was about 80 feet up in a Doug Fir.. stuck that blunt right up its keaster and the blunt stopped right at its head.. so it came down like a grouse on a spit![8D]

I just got in form a bit of dove hunting... I used on of those bird catchers. It has four sections of looped wire atached to a blunt piont. Not sure how much it ways or how effective it would be at any substantial distance. However, I did get one it was just landing next to a freshly cut corn row about 10 yards away and I smoked him. The tip took his head clean off. The tip does not fly that far and I put on a soft feather tracer that helped me follow the arrow after the miss. After shooting at about 50 differnt birds I called it quits. Alot of fun but doves just don't tend to land or fly that close.
