I use my regular practice tips. They usually work great and have lost few animals from this purpose, maybe one or possible two. If I don't pass thru, they are usually pinned to the ground/tree. Pas thru's usually resulting in killing shot anyhow. Good luck!

I was hoping to post of pictures of the shots on small game with my bow, but I cannot locate the pictures on this computer.

judo points work great and will help prevent lost arrows. The game points frm G5 are another good choice.

I had good luck with the bludgeon tips (hard cone-shaped rubber). Took a squirrel and a rabbit a couple months ago. They also do what they're name says "bludgeon"

Trust me, if you use a broadhead on small game, there will be nothing left. I shot a squirrel while deer hunting and ending up with a squirrel doughnut.

judos and bludgeons, alot cheaper than broadheads, highly effective and don't tear up as much meat.

I use some of my beat up alluminon arrows and screw a bolt in the end with a washer on it. The work great as a bludgeon plus their cheap if you lose them. I have shot a TON of cottontails this way.
