I shoot 100grain muzzy mx3s they have never failed to put a deer down quick.....imho I don't care if you are using a field point if you put a good shot on a deer it ain't going far... shot placement is everything

Field points by design displace material away (makes targets last longer). They would suck on a deer, maybe kill one..................probably not find it.

If my fletched arrows show nice tear in paper, why would I have to bare shaft or walkback (esp when FP's and BH's hit same at 50 yards)??????



I do bare shaft test with carbons, as I tune them for higher FOC and proper spine (since carbon charts suck). But then I'm usually grinding on wooden recurve risers to change centershot (get them closer to it)

Aluminums and the old Easton charts, were pretty darn good. I just found what it said to use, and went a block over to the right. Boringly uneventful.

But then I always shot helical feather fletch, substantial offset too (on recurve stuff).

I don't like drama on my TV, computer or at the target range

I'm not saying I'm going to hunt with one....I was just making a point if you put a good enough shot on a deer a field point would kill a deer and you would find it within a hundred yards

Only if you severed a major nervous system component.
Chest cavity......... I'll call BS on FP recovery within 100 yards as common. Hell pushing big blades through their chest cavities doesn't guarantee a "within 100 yards drop". I've made some good shots with razor sharp heads that had recoveries past that.

I'm not saying its going to happen everytime I'm just trying to make a point that its not all in the broad head you use its more in shot placement....I use muddy mx3s and that have a 1 1/4" cutting diameter and I can kill just as many deer with those as what I could with a double the price rage or schwacker

And if you put a heart shot or double lung shot 9.5 out of ten times you will recover the deer within 100 yards

I think deer attitude plays a big part of how far they go.

Dang straight. Iv seen deer take a Muzzy 4 blade 125 gr through both lungs/heart and still run 250 yards-when gutted there wasnt even enough blood left in it to fill the palm of my hand.
