Steep Ravine Thanksgiving buck (part 2)

A few years ago I posted my best buck taken to date and noted the great effort required to extract a deer after dropping dead at the bottom of a steep ravine. Fast forward, below is my 5th challenging recovery when hunting this honey hole. It is expected they will turn downhill when hit. Patti and I...

Re: Swat X mags!

The 2019 SWAT Vector is an over the top 4 blade in and out, with a adjusting collar that can vary the cut from 1" to 1.75".

This adjustability feature is worthwhile for moderate to fast crossbow users.

Re: Swat X mags!

The X Mag has a total 3 3/4 " total cut and I suggest using them only out of hight KE/ speed bows lover 380 fps to drive that head hard .

Low KE bows might be disadvantaged penetration wise using the X Mag ,the way I see it..

The A4 Mini would be more suitable for bows shooting less than 360 fps.

Re: Swat X mags!

I have launched the SWAT X Mag and Vector over 480 fps and they did not open on launch. SWAT provides a military derived rubber duty strap that withstand temperature extremes better than simple dental bands with longer life expectancy without decay or cracking. Extras are included. I will have them ...

Re: Recommend Me A Reliable 100gr Expandable

The SWAT X Mag or the 2019 Vector, both in 100gr. They leave beer can sized holes in deer. Unlike NAP and a few others, SWAT is 100% US made and manufactured with .036" 440 SS blades. Low profile and print groups like field points. I might add, that I carry these exclusively for Canadian customers. ...

New for 2019 , the SWAT Vector is a quality 4 blade mechanical with a true 1.5" x 1.5" cut.
I shoots very accurate like the SWAT X Mag.

Re: Spitfire FOC 170 Broadhead

I used the 170 FOC for many years , taking 8 or 9 deer with them. Not one deer made it past 50 yards after being shot. Looking over my notes, I only broke one .039 blade and bend 2 or 3. The rest of the blades were reusable and closed easily. The actual performing cut is 2 3/4" and 3 " at its widest...
