Starting to get a pile of broadheads that have been once shot thru game, missed and nicked some blades, etc

Is there any easy way to sharpen them? Replacing them is another option

No. Not and get them razor sharp but I have used a broadhead sharpener by Smith to touch them up. I killed three animals with the same Rage head. Just have to be sure nothing is bent at all or you will get disappointing results.

I don't think they are bent.

Just nicked in a few areas where they hit a rock or something.

I have about 10 heads now that have been used and I'm tired of buying new ones at $10/head

I will reuse heads if mechanically sound.

I've taken bent blade apart and straightened them and resharpened on a stone and then a steel passed across the blade to remove burrs.
Hold using a pair of vise grip pliers and also works to straighten the blade.
As long as the main body of the head isn't damaged they should work as new once put back together.
Do the spin test after you attach the head to make sure there is no wobble, and you should be good to go.

Pretty easy to do on a Work Sharp sharpener.
