Default Grizz Trick 2 Broadhead Test Vid

I finally got around to testing out this head, and was really glad I did. Does anyone have any hunting experience with it?

Check out the vid:

Do you mean the sound in flight? Iíve never had that be an issue on any head. But Iíve not hunted with this one.

I've never been able to get them to fly well. I did however manage to shoot a deer and a couple pigs with them. Blood trails were disappointing on all of them.

Yes sir, noise in flight. But it probably just bothers me and doesnít affect the deer

Yeah, you have to be confident in your gear, thatís for sure. I donít think it bothers animals cause they have no idea what it is; could be a bird or bug for all they know. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

I've killed a pile of stuff with those heads. They are my go-to fixed blade head. They'll drift a little at distance in the wind, but most fixed heads will in my experience. Noise has never been a factor with anything I've shot with them.

My experience for the most part has been easy pass-throughs (even through shoulders), big holes, and short, great blood trails. They'll tear a big hole in a deer.

There's only one deer I didn't get great blood on and that was a management buck from this past year. I shot him quartered-to, through both shoulders. The trail wasn't good, but he went less than 100 yards and all the blood was at the scene of the crash. I think the location of the wound channel had to do with the lack of blood on the ground.

Those heads are a staple in my quiver.

This IS ďDirty SanchezĒ. Iíve lost count of animals with a single head. Itís devastating from javilena... known for poor blood trail and being able to see it from google earth. Up to 292 pound boar that passed through so fast in both shoulders with a 60# bow it looked like a miss. Unreal blood trails.... IF sharp.... the Walmart stuff is sketchy out of the package at times. I donít think the raptor tricks would hurt my kid if he swallowed one they are so dull

I get same hole to 60 yards with them... for $7 a 3 pack they canít be beat on sale

I have killed several deer and dozens of hogs with the original grizztrick, haven't hunted any with the II but have shot them and they seem to fly the same to me. I have great confidence in them out to 30 yds, not much after that, probably just in my head. I personally like the way they sound in flight, probably a little morbid but pretty cool hearing the flight and impact sounds.

They were my go to BH for years in Texas before venturing out to western hunting and long range shooting. Love them to death and more kills then I can remember under 25 yards. I just Could never get them to fly great pass 40 yards no matter how fine tuned my bow was. Always great blood trail trail
