I was thinking about getting blunt tips or other small game heads but a friend gave me a few adder points and they work well. The added 25 grains didnt make a difference from shooting just field tips.

I havekilled several rabbits with my bow I use old mech broadhead. I too would like to whack a coyote with my bow. I also recommend judo points, at least for squirrels, my brother hit a squirrel with his bow and them he had to wait to get his arrow back untilit died and fell from the tree. He shot it on the ground, and it managed to climb a small tree with the arrow in it.
