I've read I can shoot a fixed broad head through the mesh on my blind. Can I shoot an expandable through it?



It's the time spent in God's creation with family and friends making memories that counts.

you CAN....I wouldn't, but yes, its possible. The mesh will cause the blades to open, thus allowing for wind resistance. No telling where it will hit.

I wouldn’t during a hunt, but you can set up a target and try it, just to see what would happen sometime when you are just messing around.

I wouldn't take the chance.

That's my thoughts.

Yeah, thats not a good idea. After that expandable hits the mesh no telling where it would go. The first year my buddy hunted archery season he didnt know any better and shot his expandable thru the mesh. Ended up w a really lucky shot and hit the throat instead of the heart/lung kill shot. Fortunately he hit the jugular and the doe expired quickly.

It MIGHT depend on how they open on contact but they are designed to fly in the upright and closed position.

Ive shot my fixed blades thru the mesh and never had a problem, you get a perfect cutout, just like when you paper tune.

That's my $.02.


New fish, looking for advice.
