Old style 145 grain snuffer for anything under 40 and SS snuffers for anything over 40 or in windy conditions. I have to test about 6 arrows to find one that will fly the big ones straight, but its worth it as I have never seen anything that cuts a hole through an animal like a big snuffer!

Me either, Paul! Yowzer! Would be cheaper to just buy a shovel and hammer into a point!

That Kayuga is definitely an interesting head. What draw weight and arrow mass?

Oh, and no, I am not that talented at flint knapping! Bought these to shoot a few critters with.

Have done pretty well with the Snuffers and VPAs over the years off my longbow and wanted to do another step back. Osage self bow, cane arrows and knapped flint and obsidian points…. Gotta keep it interesting ;-)

In my 65 years of Bowhunting (I started in 1956) I have seen/heard this zillions of times.. Fortynatly, today, we can "pick the one we like" & suits "our" bowhunting needs. I'm like others & like to play around with tackle but whe n I go to the woods, I still use a more developed head os one that came out in the mid 70s with replaceable blades. A Rocky Mountain. I feel "they" are the basis of many of todays replacable blade heads. No longer made I was fortunate to be in contact with Barries son & "made a deal" for lets say "a bunch" + blades on 3 models at that time. I have enough for my lifetime. Anyway, currently the Ironhead & it will down any North American game I have (many) or will ever bowhunt. Granted, Africa (a few critters) may require a different style. Anyway, we are fortunate to have many great heads out there to fit anyones needs & budget. No, I don't play like I used to due to the "cost per head" for so many today.. Good luck & if we put it where we need to, most will do the job..

Hybrid- zebra with a stickbow, what a bad ass pic! Cool broadhead I’ve never seen.

Hunted Namibia a few years back and couldn’t get it done with my Black Widow so switched to my sons compound. Still couldn’t close the deal on a zebra. That is one smart critter, congrats on the accomplishment !

Debating between 125 grain Slick Trick standards which group nearly as tight as my field points to 60 yards or 125 3 blade vented VPAs which group about 6” at 60 yards. 12 VPA arrows are all put together pre-shot to 60 to sort out any fliers but at 290 FPS they just aren’t real forgiving. The VPA grouping is plenty tight for an elk and much further than I plan to shoot but the Slick Tricks are more forgiving or little form errors that will surely arise when shooting from awkward positions. I’ve got plenty of Slick Tricks but need to shoot these VPA at some point so………
