Too many choices? Trust your gut

There has been a discussion for some time among archery hunters regarding broad heads.

Specifically, fixed blades or expandable blades.

My input to the discussion is pretty simple – go with what gives you the most confidence.

There are quality companies on both sides which make fantastic and fatal broad heads. Personally, I have killed deer with both fixed and expandable blades. When I first started hunting, I hunted with fixed blades.

I killed my first 8-point buck with a Thunderhead 100-grain fixed broad head. It was quite a moment for myself as that deer fell within 60 yards of where the arrow impacted him.

A few years later, I killed my third 8-point buck with an expandable T3 from G5. Again, he fell at 60 yards.

While I got a pass-through shot with both arrows, I had problems with expandable blades. Expandable blades became loose for me and I found myself constantly adjusting clips in the stand. I never had a problem with the performance of the blades, but I couldn’t stand what became a constant problem I didn’t want to contend with anymore.

Today I’m shooting a Muzzy fixed-blade broad head. While Muzzy is a fine maker and well-known for quality broad heads, it’s the mental comfort of trusting the arrow that means the world to me.

So, if you are reading magazines about broad heads and don’t know which way to turn, go with your gut and trust it. Until that arrowhead gives you a reason to change, believe in it and trust it as you pull the trigger this fall.
