    Surprisingly Lethal

    I shot my first animal using a 2 blade rage broadhead yesterday.

    The goat was about 15m away and I'm shooting a reasonably fast 70lb bow. The arrow went clean through and stuck into the tree behind it.

    I was amazed with how lethal it was, the blades opened up perfectly and I found the goat only 20m away after following a very thick blood trail.

    nice one!! have you seen the titanium wire tips? it looks like a broadhead then has a figure 8 wire thru it, idea being the wire constricts down while passing thru ribs etc and expands thru flesh

    Good skills.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yep. When I first started hunting with a bow last year I was amazed at the damage a decent broadhead can inflict!
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Yes, they seem to run and die about as much as with a rifle, if both shot through the lungs.
    Put the keyboard down. Now kick it over here.
