FYI- someone implied this already, but if it's not been explicitly said- try not to shoot your actual hunting broadheads into the target... it will dull them in a hurry. If they don't make practice heads for your BH then set aside 1 or 2 to be practice heads.

Just make sure you put in NEW, NEVER shot blades before hunting!
Good luck

Don't laugh... hey we have all been at that place where we are starting out and need to ask questions. At least, I know I was there, and I still ask questions that might be "dumb", however you will never learn if you don's ask. Bottom line, if you have any questions, never feel bad asking, because we are all hunters together, and we are all here to help each other out.

If you are going to hunt with the same broadheads you are shooting into foam, resharpen them prior to hunting with them. That foam will dull the razors edge very quickly.

I shoot my muzzys into my glendale full rut. After a hour you can hardly see the hole.

Something else you might want to consider. Those blades are very sharp and should be for hunting. Any time you shoot them into something it dulls the blades to some extent.

Your responsibility as an ethical hunter would be to either resharpen the blades or replace them for hunting. Replacement is what I always do as that is part of the advantages of having replaceable blade heads. The old blades can then be saved for next year's or any subsequent practice sessions.

Very true! I use a BRAND NEW broadhead for EVERY deer that I shoot. Just the way I am.
