I'm interested in how you hunters store broadheads, when not on your arrows? There are commercial broadhead boxes for purchase out there, but I'm not crazy about them. They're not always large enough for the heads we use. I'm thinking about making my own. Looking for ideas. Thanks!

All of my loose broadheads are kept in those five compartment plastic fishing lure boxes found at WM. I have them marked as new, used or varmint. Varmint are too far gone to resharpen effectively.

I made this broadhead storage container years ago out of a coffee can. It fits perfectly into the arrow carrier for transport to camp. I use the original Bear vinyl sleeves to carry a few extra in my pack.

I make little leather broached sheaths for mine. Some stay on arrows and some stay in a tool box that's loaded will all sorts of archery odds and ends, spare parts, and arrow making stuff.

Made a wooden box out of scrap plywood, something like 14x14, with an insert drilled in a grid of holes to accept a light press fit of the aluminum inserts that come with GT shafts that I never use.. had quite a stockpile of them. I screw the broadheads into the inserts and push them into the holes. Keeps them orderly and if the box gets jostled they stay put. Believe it holds something like 60 broad heads. Planned to make a partition on the side for glue ons, but so far they're just laying on that side [Roll Eyes]

Once I get glued on and shooting well, it stays on the shaft permanently.

I use the flat, plastic, multi compartment fishing lure boxes from Wally World. Oil the heads and put them in a compartment. Piece of green masking tape over the compartment to label with a sharpie. This the best way I have found.

They go into a small parts cabinet with pull out drawers that sits on the bench, one drawer for each brand. They are fine in there with no special rig needed and since they are indoors rust is not an issue.

Since I go to a little trouble to ensure two-blade heads are vertically aligned at my cant so that I can use them for aiming(like the front sight of a rifle), I also leave them on the shafts in an arrow box so I don't have to match them up again. I light Vaseline wipe on the edges and all I have to do the following season is strop.
