100 grain std slick tricks and VPA 150 grains both worked well for me in SA. There are many good broadheads today. It you have one that you shoot well and it is sharp you are good.

I'm all about DirtNap Gear DRTs. Both the 100/125 grain version and the all steel 150/175. Great flight, lifetime warranty and awesome blood trails.

No, ive never understood that claim. They are deathly silent. Only thing i can think is if a guys setup is way out of tune or something but they have always flown great for me.

Thanks Tom. The DRT are interesting broad heads. I particularly like their 25 grain collar that comes with them.

I use kudu point single bevel broadheads. Very strong and easy to sharpen.

They leave tremendous blood trails and really do a go job on game. I have yet to have anything run over 50 yards even on marginal hits. I shot this buffalo high and he bedded up right at 50. Complete pass thru at 40 yards with a 425 gr total weight arrow out of a 70 lb bow

Hi there! Ive really had a lot of success with the NAP Killzones. They work magic for me.
Nap killzone on African game? That's what I use for north American game but was skeptical of the mechanical over in African. I trust them 100%but have been told a fixed head is a must. Animals immgoing for are kudu, sable,wildebeast,impala,zebra

I've only bow hunted white tails, but I've used Muzzy 3 blade (blows large entrance holes) and G5 Montecs (great penetration). Both are 100 gr. I'd like to try the Muzzy Trocar, a small head.

I did use German Kinetics but they were sold To a Co. in Alaska 6 or 7 years ago and are not nearly as SHARP as they were. I use Slick Trick 4 blades now.

I shoot longbows and recurves, and my favourite broadheads have been Magnus II and STOS two-bladers. Shot buffalos and camels with STOS. These days I’m using VPA 300 grain two-bladers, but have no hunting experience with them yet.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
