    Broadheads, the only part that matters

    I took my first animal with a bow and arrow 46 years ago and was hooked ever since. During that time, my focus and fascination has always been on the only part of our gear actually responsible for killing the animal. Broadheads have been my passion for almost 5 decades. We are a few days from...

    Suburban bow deer cull, what I've learned

    Ive been flinging broadhead tipped arrows at animals for 45+ years. Ive loved every minute until now and I have myself to blame. If I told you that killing an 8 pointer with a bow and arrow would leave you with feelings of regret, you might find it an odd statement but that’s where Im at. The...

    Hung my 2019 Idaho Bull

    Another rainy Sunday so I hung my Euro mount I did of my Idaho Elk from a couple weeks ago. I had to move 5 other mounts to another location. Im running out of wall space and its a great problem to have. Not having vaulted ceilings makes it challenging to hang an elk.

    Thinking of having my own broadheads made

    Ive been slinging arrows at animals for 45 years and in that time Ive taken my fair share.
