Question Archery duck hunting question..

I know in california you have to use flu-flu's to archery hunt ducks, but i can't remember for the life of me the name of the broadheads for duck and geese hunting with bows. it's shaped like a firgure 8. you guys remember what they're called so i can look into them? my close buddy got caught up into a little trouble and has a temporary felony for the next year and a half, but they still allow him to use a bow for the time being. i'd like to still have an alternative to hunt waterfowl with him next season. thanks guys

I believe I used to have what you are talking about. It was actually a Snaro with a 7/8" broadhead infront of it. Never had the chance to shoot a bird with it so don't know if it would work or not. But I also believe they were intended for smaller birds such as grouse, pheasant, quail. Not as large as a duck or goose. I would guess hunting geese you would want to hunt them like turkey. Ducks...well I have no clue to be honest.

I tried the big snare type heads years ago,went back to broadheads. You have to run an extra long shaft to keep the snare head away from the bow, and with the length I had to use on a hatchetcam or a solocam without an overdraw, that was not really practical. The only advantage they have is making arrows easier to find. It would work better with a bow dedicated to that purpose only, due to the spine changes which usually require an arrow change also.
