Satellite 100 grain about 20 years ago.Axis doe she was about 50 yds I held my 40 yd pin over just a little.It seemed everything was moving in slow motion it took forever for that arrow to finally hit her.Shot was a little high behind the shoulder but was a pass through.I watch her fall within 30 yards I was super pumped.

100 grain 3 blade muzzy in 2002 on the ugliest spike I’ve ever seen. They’re still my go-to broadhead.

100 grain bacon skinners. 7/8” cut 3 blades. When they closed them out I bought all they had. I still have 4 packages not yet opened. I carry 2 in my quiver to this day but I have had to go a cross bow.

Not a broadhead, but a field tip on a cottontail. A head shot to boot. Granted, it was the last of 5 arrows, but I got him.

Brute 4 blade with in 2 blades in it. Also a big Anderson.

I climbed up in a mesquite tree, by myself, near frog creek on our Paint Rock deer lease, hunting over a hanging 5 gallon bucket feeder at 8 years old.
First hunt, shot a doe as my first bow kill in that spot.
Used a bear mini magnum and I believe 25lb max draw weight. Doe didn’t make it 40 yards and fell over.
Also some more down memory lane, included pictures of my first buck, me standing with my second bow and me in a news paper clipping shooting a tournament with my first overdraw on a bow.

Good stuff everyone. Enjoy seeing that first success and the continued passion for archery.
Sure brings a smile to my face reading all this. Definitely some broadhead names I haven’t heard in a while. Good to see some of the OG broadheads still around and kickin’. New broadheads and old…I sure like them all.

I wish the best to everyone this coming season and here’s to many more firsts and memories made.

Yep. I here is a couple of Savora Swept Wing broadheads that I dug out of storage from 40+ years ago.

I didn't look all the way thru, but I don't remember posting to this thread.

My first hunting bow was a Bear Magnum Recurve 50lb. I was shooting Easton silver aluminum arrows and Bear Super Razor Heads. I lost a lot of arrows stalking thru the Live Oaks in Mills county. I never did kill a deer with that bow.

I killed my first deer with a bow in Coke county. I was shooting a Jennings T-Star, Easton Autumn Orange 2216 arrows with a Razorback 5 broadhead.

I thought those orange aluminum Eastons were the coolest back in the day.
I never shot the Razorback 5 but I do still have some of the Bear Razor heads.

Muzzy 3 blade 100 grain. Forward shot (20 yards) broke the shoulder and he fell over like a sack of potatoes. Arm was hung up over his head. And he was FAR from dead. Finished with the Von Erich headlock and a Buck fixed blade. Never forget that one! My Dad thought that was the funniest thing ever to watch! Man I miss him!
