Think what you will... your situation was not a problem with the broadhead.

As stated already don’t blame the broad head, if you would of hit vitals it would be dead.. the only thing I could see helping in this situation would be an expandable May would of opened up and barely sliced something, maybe not.. and for everyone talking about blood trails I don’t know this but I personally I think that you get a better blood trail from a tree typically, I think if you shoot one from a ground blind especially if the shot is any bit high that by the time the lungs fill up and start to really pump out the blood the animal is dead.. a tree seems like you would be poking a hole lower at the exit..

If you hit them in the “right” spot, a spork will kill.

For me a slight quartering away and tucked in tight is the only shot.

Preferable about 20 yards out. Any closer in a tree stand and the angle is just too great.

And rule #1 is to ALWAYS aim for the exit hole.

Good luck. Go back out and stick her again.

Don't try this with your expandable. That's the actual shoulder joint. Slick trick 100 magnum

How can a 1 1/8 square hole not leave a blood trail? Kyle is gonna post a couple of pics of a deer Lindy killed with an 85 grain ST on a quartering shot. She couldíve gone a little more forward, but the shot was all lungs. I think the OP Ďs shot was more broadside than he thinks.

I have killed many deer and hogs with my ST's put in the "spot". I really wish I could still get ST Razor Tricks, they went through hogs like butter. I have actually shot a big hog with one, and the arrow went through it, and killed another hog behind it.

I am a fan of ST. It’s always my go to in my quiver. I will say though I have never had great blood trails with them. They usually go down quick though.

If you don't get a good blood trail with any 4-blade broadhead, double check your blades are sharp. Leaving them in a quiver all season could dull them depending on the type of quiver.

I’ve always had great blood trails with slick trick mag and if you hit a rib or shoulder you still get straight deep penetration. I’ve seen too many deer hit with large expandable that entered in the “pump room” only to change course and come out in the guts. There is such a thing as not enough blade pitch and too wide a cut...IMO

Iím fine with someone disagreeing with me. I am just stating what I have found with slick tricks. Any broadhead can have a good blood trail once or twice. I shot 15-20 animals with them and the majority of the blood trails sucked. So for everyone quoting me saying how awesome they are, if you have only shot one or two things get a bigger sample size then come back to me

Well, my wife and I have over 150 whitetail deer and bunches of pigs that weíve killed with a bow, with various broad heads, and our blood trails with ST heads are as good as weíve had. I agree with you on others that have only shot one or two animals. Maybe they donít have the blood trailing skills.

Not in vitals should be fatal? It obviously wasn’t in vitals

Not trying to be an @$$ but I still fail to see where the Broadhead didn’t do all it could given the shot

To me, the most important thing is confidence in your broadhead. Obviously the OP has lost confidence in SlickTricks, whether itís his fault or not. He should change heads imo. We continue to learn in this game we all love

I use slick tricks and have killed about 7 deer and an elk with them. All have been pass throughs and have found the animal within 100 yards on them but all but one of them have had pretty weak blood trails. Maybe itís a small sample size but I found it odd since they were pass throughs. Anyway, I love the way they fly and have good luck with them so Iíll continue using them.

If I said:

I was driving to cinnamon creek the other day and ran out of gas, I’m done with cinnamon creek!

There would be the same type response here. The one at blame wasn’t at fault.

And again if op wants to change equipment by all means do what needs done, just don’t play the Broadhead failed me card when it didn’t

This was exactly what happened with me and the Montec g5. I switched to ST mags and have had much better blood trails. Only killed a handful of pigs and deer and an aoudad.

Blood trails are what they are. Shot angles and speed of retreat affect them.

All but 2. Those were both pigs. That said of the ones found the blood trails sucked for shot placement.

There are many other better fixed heads than a slick trick.

Years ago I shot maybe 10-12 deer with ST's and never even had a decent bloodtrail. Not.once.

And I know the guys with deer dogs don't like them either because of the common lack of sign.

Those comments have nothing to do with the OP. Carry on.

Wrong. Slick tricks donít hold an edge. The flat blade angle dulls the **** out of the blades upon entry. The fact they donít use premium material means by the time the blades enter the cavity they are dull. I can take my iron wills and shave hair after passing through an animal. Slick tricks dull in the quiver.

Well you are kinda missing the point. Whether good shot placement or bad shot placement they have a strong history of leaving very little sign.

If it left good trail most wouldn’t need a dog . I won’t agree the fact that some may or may not have good trails. A good trail is subjective anyway. I’ll argue that if you shoot a deer in the lungs with one.... or any Broadhead... or a $&&%ing hand chipped rock the deer will die and leave enough blood for most to follow. The op.... didn’t make that shot and is bashing a product that didn’t fail. That’s my only argue on this thread

I’m not a ramcat guy. Don’t dislike them just don’t prefer them and if this thread was started about them or rage whatever with info provided I’d use the same argument. Broadhead didn’t fail

I for one have never had a dull one or one not do it’s intend job

Wrong. No matter the head, all will dull on impact. ST heads cut a big hole, and stay as sharp as any other affordable broadhead. If you choose to shoot an ďeliteĒ broadhead, because you justify the price, please donít bash a good affordable head. Iíve shot a multitude of heads, and killed lots of animals with them, fixed, and mechanicals. Not once, have I lost an animal due to the broadhead. All lost animals or poor blood trails were due to shot placement errors on my part.

Wrong. No matter the head, all will dull on impact. ST heads cut a big hole, and stay as sharp as any other affordable broadhead. If you choose to shoot an ďeliteĒ broadhead, because you justify the price, please donít bash a good affordable head. Iíve shot a multitude of heads, and killed lots of animals with them, fixed, and mechanicals. Not once, have I lost an animal due to the broadhead. All lost animals or poor blood trails were due to shot placement errors on my part.


So you know everyone replying? You know that all of them have killed animals with a trick?
