Default Traditional Equipment Broadhead Penetration Challenge

You are all invited to participate in:

Traditional Equipment Broadhead Penetration Challenge

All criteria, rules, regulations, and relative links can be found at the above.
Please study them before making an entry submission.

This is not about just the broadhead.
It's about the overall configuration of your hunting arrows, and bow setups.
Every element of a configuration has some effect.
The broadhead is just one element among many that apply.

As the videos start coming in we may very well get to see the differences in effects between those configurations.
I sure hope so, because that is the point of this.

The challenge will run indefinitely, so there's no rush to get entries submitted,
although we would love to see them start rolling in fairly soon.

We will be keeping a web page list of the current TOP 10 EFFICIENCY ENTRIES.
Get your entries in, and shoot for the TOP 10.

Sounds like a neat little experiment! I have to hit HD tomorrow anyway and might as well pick up some target material while I'm there. I'd like to see how efficient a 641g arrow is out of a 45lb recurve.


God bless and happy hunting.
Richard.

This looks extremely cool and downright scientific, if we do it according to Hoyle as outlined.

Thanks. I think so.

Very much looking forward to you guys getting entries submitted.
The more we get into the repository, the more comparisons can be made.

There's absolutely nothing, that will ever equally compare to actually shooting through living flesh & bone. Heck, even shooting through living flesh & bone will have varying density & resistance from one animal to the other, even if the animals seem to be exactly the same.

The thing is, the shooting of this block puts everyone on an equal playing field, and you can bet your bottom dollar an arrow penetrating deeper into it will also penetrate deeper into living flesh & bone.

It's going to be very interesting to see the results once they start rolling in.
