Don't know how it's possible. It guts and skins them all in one shot.

Lost?? Do I know it's dead? No. So did I "lose" it????????????

It's happened on two occasions with me. I have two "unknowns" with this head.

Rage Heads are guaranteed to drop the deer with 150 yrds with a blood trail you can track while running, If you lose a deer with a Rage Broadhead you need a new bow..... J/K I have heard enough good things that I am going to switch to them.

Poor shot placement can lead to a lost deer whether you shoot a needle at it or a machete...
Put it where it goes, and a fieldpoint would do the job.

Rages arent immune to bad shots, as are any BH....unless a BH fails (opens in flight, falls apart), how can ANY BH be blamed for a lost deer?

I have heard of more deer lost this year with rage broadheads than all other heads combined. I think I'll stick to muzzys.

You’d have to be an absolute fool to think no deer have been lost that were shot with ANY broadhead.
Rage is not immune to hitting a deer and not killing it. Or not killing it in a manner that leaves it able to be found. Tribal nailed that one, I swear some of you people believe all you have to do is point your bow in the general direction of a deer and you’ll kill it if you are shooting a Rage B-head.

from what i've read, i'm going to buy a rage head, screw it on my arrow and prop up the arrow along a known deer trail.

Apparently the deer, realizing that it is futile to resist, will run headlong and IMPALE ITSELF , severing arteries, lungs , heart, spine, kidneys and pancreas .

this should cut my hunting time down 84% freeing up more time to stalk the Olson twins.


THANK YOU, RAGE!!!!!
