Does anybody have any suggestions on some cheap yet reliable broadheads for pigs?

We have a serious issue with pigs this year and they are all over my bow stands. Its gotten pretty bad, we are seeing less and less deer on the cams every week (one cam hasnt even captured a deer in the last 3 weeks), so my plan is to dedicate the time bw now and opener to try to start cleaning out some of the hogs and hone in my bow shootin. Obviously dont want to be using my deer broadheads though.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I'd use NAP Thunderheads. Good fixed blade at a decent price.

Not sure if they are still selling them but I have used grim reaper hog heads for the last couple of years and have killed a pile of them. They are mechanical heads that run $19 for a three pack. Had a few heads that made it through 5 or 6 hogs before they were trash.

I have used all kinds of different fixed broadheads. I used the Muzzy standard 2 blade, and they work very well, and penetrate deep. Most were pass through. I found some cheap NAP fixed 3 blades that were either 7/8" or 1" cutting diameter, and they work well. I prefer the fixed blades on pigs. I did shoot 2 pigs with a Steel Force 4 blade (large main blade and small bleeder blade), and both of these broadheads broke. So, I don't like these broadheads for tough critters. The NAP 3 blade is what I used the last times bow hunting with pigs.

Steel Force if you can find them my second choice is bear broad heads with a bleeder blade.

Old School.



But if I had to use ‘steel’, I like a Zwickey Delta.

My used broadheads become pig heads. When they get dull or knicked I move them to the last 2 or 3 spots in my quiver. I still have some old muzzy 100gr 3 blades that i swear will never break. Those things must have killed 10-15 hogs each.

Sir we need to talk. I've wanted to kill a hog with a wooden arrow and knapped head for years but I've never really known anybody that could help me out. I will buy whatever is needed to get arrows set up for one of my recurves.

Bass Pro Shops had the new NAP Rednecks on sale for $14 per 3 pack. They are pretty much a Thunderhead with red stripes on the center portion.

I think most all blades are lazer sharpened now because even cheap heads are scary sharp. I had a pack of those and killed two deer and a hog with the three and when I have to shoot a coon I don't feel as bad because I'm not launching $15 heads at em.
