Default Broadhead damage thread

This is the official broadhead damage thread. So post your entrance and exit wounds, bloodtrails, name and type of broadhead!

I like seeing the results of different bh's. Very educational stuff right there!

Smoke Ramcat 3 blade 100 grain entrance holes on Impala (1st pics) and Waterbuck (2nd pics) No exit as it hit the off side leg/shoulder on the Impala and broke both shoulders on the Waterbuck. Not much of a blood trail on either due to the location of the hit, but both went down in less than 100 yards.

The hit on the big Warthog was directly in the left ham from the rear due to the hog turning to leave at 25 yards, but the 560 grain arrow with the Ramcat up front buried all but 2" of the arrow inside the body of the Warthog. I think that there are 2 things that contributed to this tremendous penetration on a big Warthog, a heavy 560 grain arrow and the super sharp Ramcat. The biggest would be the arrow weight as I do not think that a light arrow like I use to shoot would have penetrated like this and i think any broadhead would have done the same on this heavy arrow. No more light arrows for me.

x3 on the Vortex.

I use the 125g pro extreme and shot a doe this weekend. I could put my hand in the exit wound, about 3 inches wide. The blood trail was the same as pictured. Unfortunately no pictures.

Rage 2 blades. I never wanted to shoot expandables but I started shooting these 2 years ago and I gain more confidence every animal I shoot at. This was a hard quartering shot and it burried until the only thing sticking out was my lighted knock.

I shot the Rocky Mountain gators (now made by BPS) and they basically cut just like the 2 blade vortex's. But way they made they do open up if shooting thru windows so I just stick with fixed now. I hit this doe way back with the first shot but she only went about 20 yds and could go no farther and the hole in leg was second shot.
