OK guys, I'm stuck at work thinking about the woods,which is where my brothers are (I'm so jealous), and decided that I would "Stir the pot". Mechanical broad heads to me,are akin to the belted magnum craze that some hunters are still experiencing.Not needed,or rarely needed anyway, but seems to be more about ego than anything else. I don't believe there is a whitetail or mule deer in America that can take a 243 caliber-100 grain bullet thru the boiler room and survive. And yet some would shoot one with a 338 magnum. It appears to be the same with Mechanical broad heads. I shoot a Muzzie or Slick Trick,sharpened beyond factory specs, and never have an issue with long tracking jobs or bad blood trails. Why would I want to shoot something that will have a 3 inch cut, and has to be moving at a break neck speed just to open on impact.I fail to see the actual advantage of this except that, as stated above, its about ego. Am I wrong? This discussion is of course "tongue n cheek", so no death threats are required!
