broadheads for elk hunting

Postby schlupis » Thu Aug 14, 2008 8:49 am

Hello looking for some help as far as broadheads go. I am going elk hunting next year and I shoot expandable broadheads and the state I am elk hunting in does not allow expandables.. So I know what works good on a whitetail for fixed blades from years ago...
 
What I would like to know is from sombody with past experience what you used and how it held up the entry hole and how much tuning you had to do to get the broadhead to fly consistent...
 
Any help is appreciated looking right now at the shuttle t-locks but they seem pretty small..

While I havent been lucky enough to go for elk my dad and some frineds of our have gone. They all used Zwickey heads will good results. We use the same heads for deer.They take a pounding and get great penetration.

I really like my sonic pro's but not sure they'd hold up well on elk.  They seem to be a one shot broadhead - nicked blades and bent points.  They kill cleanly though.
 
I also like the magnus stingers, at least for flying similar to my fieldpoints.  But the two blade with bleeders don't seem to kill as cleanly as the sonics.  They do hold together much better and have a lifetime guarantee.  So that's a plus.

If you go with the big, mean green heads we shoot the 125 grain 4 blade Eskimo. We also use the 125 grain glue on field points with the same adaptors used in the broadheads. Once properly tuned I don't need to make any sight adjustments between the the heads. We also use a sharpening stone for the main blades (you can get them scary sharp on the stone) and a small file to keep the edge up on the bleeder blades.
