Bowtech Allegiance 70#
Easton ST Axis about 420ish grains with 100 grain broadhead.
Rocket Hammerhead 100 grains

Worst shot I have ever had on a deer. He was chasing a doe. I stopped him using my mouth to grunt twice. Both stopped after 2 loud mouth grunts. By the time he stopped he was about 43 yards. I shoot 3 inch groups at 40 yards. Alert deer move when you shoot at them(so I found out). The arrow hit him half way between the back leg knee and the rump. When I released, it looked like it should have hit behind the shoulder from watching the arrow flight. I have 2 white and 1 blaze orange blazers, on a white dip with orange knocks. I can see my arrow pretty good, but alert deer have time to react at that range. Lesson learned. Don't shoot alert deer at 40+ yards.

The 8 point ran about 40 yards and stopped. He stood there for about a minute and started to wobble. He fell over in the bean field and I saw his feet fly up in the air. I thought I hit him right behind the shoulder and he died then and there. About 5 minutes later, he tried to stand up. It was raining, I stalked up on him and put a Slick Trick through his neck(i usually carry both fixed and mechanicals)

End result: The hamerhead hit him between the knee and the rump of his hind leg. It slid up the bone all the way to the ball socket on his rump(if you have ever buthchered a deer, you know what I mean). This broad head is not ment to be a bone breaker. It is meant to cause massive hemmorage damage, and it did just that. It annhilated the femoral artery and that deer would have died in less than 30 minutes had I just let it lay there. it looked like a crime scene where the deer was laying.

I tell my buddies that Rocket Hammerheads are the broadheads for those "Opps I just blew that shot" moments and it proved itself once again. I have made much better shots with lesser broadheads and not found the deer. I jokingly told my brother once that you could shoot a deer in the leg with a Hammerhead and probably find it. I didn't think it would ever actually happen.

Please don't flame me. We all have bad shots. Most of us are still learning even after years of experience.. After 18 years 22 bucks and 30+ does ,in Michigan, which probably one of the hardest states to hunt whitetails, that was my longest bow shot ever. I now know my limitations.

I have been comparing broadheads for years with myself and my hunting buddies. I don't quite understand why anyone would shoot a mechanical that is not at least 2 inches. With so many COC BHs shooting like field points now, there is no reason to shoot a mechanical that only opens to 1 1/8" to 1 1/2". Go big or go home. You may as well shoot a COC. 2 inch plus is the only way to go for a mechanical. You wasting your time otherwise.

The only reason i will ever use a COC broadhead again is to shoot through a mesh net in a ground popup, hence the reason I carry Slick Tricks on my quiver, which do a bang up job as well.

8 point basket buck, October 14th 2007 around 5:45 PM. 2.5 years old.

Whitetail doe
NAP Nitron 100 gr

I shot from an off angle and ended up hitting her shoulder....went through, pierced the lung, and into the other shoulder. She jumped and went down.

Got the broadhead out...no damage, cleaned off and shot the next day, was right on at 20,30, and 40 yards. Tougher than other broadheads I used.
