What kind of head you shoot is up to you. Shoot what flies well for you and you can get good and sharp. Put that arrow where it's supposed to go and any head will kill the deer in short order. Any bad hit will not be a good hit just because you used a 3 blade. Dont worry about the blood trail. Worry about getting close and making a good hit to make a quick kill. Then you can watch them fall. These 2 v 3 blade arguments are just silly.

This is Trad Gang. It's not an argument it's a discussion.

[campfire]

I have come to prefer 3 blades with a lot of my set ups since I was shooting through deer so easily with 2 blades I figured I was wasting cutting power.

If I am not shooting a 3 blade it's a large 2 blade like a Tusker Delta or a Simmons. Best of both worlds.

At 40lb I would go with a 2 blade, especially with a big Canadian WT or mulie, a lot bigger than a central texas whitetail.

I like Mint's advice best. But, also appreciate the humorous responses too!

Poundage is light Canadian deer are big. I still think you'll be fine with either on a good shot. The only advice I would have is if you go 2 blade go big. That's what I prefer a big MA1.

On a serious note....If I had to shoot that weight and draw on a CANADIAN deer....I would use a POINTY 2 blade head.

Contrary to what many believe all bheads are NOT the same...they are designed to do different things....they are TOOLS...and you don't build a house with just a screw driver.

Using an overly tanto will not be an advantage....it will tent more at impact, and its NOT going to bust through a heavy Canadian shoulder with the 'bone busting' advantages that a tanto gives with a heavier weight bow....so...

Take advantage of POINTY heads, or a SLIGHT tanto, that wont rob you of energy at impact and let you travel further with that light weight bow and arrow. And remember....folks hit a little back about 85-90% vs too far forward(study done right here on TradGang).

So again, place your bet on the MOST LIKELY worst case scenario of too far back and lets get a pass through....


I don't find BroadHead discussions silly....I find them serious.

150 gr Magnus Stingers with bleeder blades are the best of both worlds. Just my experience!

Great points Terry ( no pun intended) :-)

I am shooting lower poundage, as I get older, and a well known arrow maker told me the same thing about pointy 2 blade and not tanto at low draw weights.

I wish they still made STOS but I think Zwickey Eskimos will work :-)


Thanks!!
