I got my bow down and knocked the dust off over the weekend. When I pulled out my arrows to check them out I realized that I had a broadhead on that my hunting partner gave me last year. It is a brand called Toxic Broadheads. Now, I have not killed a deer with one yet but my hunting buddy shot a doe with one last year. I had intended to make a post about these broadheads last season after my buddy shot his deer, but I forgot to. The reason I wanted to make a post was because the blood trail that this broadhead gave us was unbelievable! He actually had made just an average shot and hit the deer a little far back but he was able to catch one lung. Thankfully, due to the size of hole these broadheads punch through the deer we found her after about 75 yds of tracking. It looked like somebody had poured red paint out on the entire trail! I highly recommend these broadheads to anyone...they made a believer out of me!

I can almost guarantee it is because they were trying to use helical vains with them. My vains have a slight twist and they shoot pretty well. They are spot on if you install straight vains. Actually, these shoot smoother and truer than the previous broadhead I was using.
I shot my bow last night and when I shoot I take 10 shots from each distance that I choose to shoot from. At 40 yds I had 6 arrows at least touching part of an area the size of a quarter. I had 2 miss by about 3", which I assume was operator error. and the other 2 missed by less than that. For a broadhead, I can live with that. Especially when they pour out that much blood.

As you may have noticed further up on the Braggin' Board, I shot a doe yesterday morning. I shot her with a Toxic Broadhead. This is the first deer I have taken with these broadheads. All I can say is WOW :o! These things are the real deal. I actually shot her a little too far forward and a touch high. After I shot I was pretty worried because I thought I even shot further forward on her than I actually did. Man oH Man did she ever bleed! With my shot being a little high and a touch forward the only vitals I caught were 1 lung. But she only went fifty yards because she dumped gallons of blood out. I was finding blood sprayed up over 5' high on cornstalks. And from my waist down almost all the way to the ground every fifth or sixth corn stalk looked like someone took a paint roller and painted them red. The entrance and exit wounds were as big around as my thumb and those holes became drain holes for most of her blood supply. What I really like about these broadheads is there is almost no chance that fat can plug the hole up and slow down the bleeding. This doe had a big layer of fat on her but it never came close to stopping her bleeding. I would so far give these broadheads a 5 star rating. By the way, you can buy them at Dick's Sporting Goods too.
