The question by Shutterbugbowhunter about 3 blades broadheads brought up some thoughts I’d like to run by other hunters. Over the years I’ve used quite a few different 3 bladed broadheads. Different weight snuffers, Rocky Mountain razors, G5’s, just to mention a few. In many situations, using the vented heads has caused me poor blood trails because they had a tendency in my experience to pull fat and tissue through the exit wound and plugged the hole. Especially on shots from above where the exit wound was low. I can’t say that I left game unrecovered, but many times this was just because I knew my area so well after hunting there for many years and knew where to look for an animal that was mortalily wounded. I’ve never had that problem with any 2 bladed head. Someone told me years ago that they thought it was the fletching that pulled fat and tissue through, and I suppose it can be true some times, but I don’t think it’s the major cause.
Please share some thoughts.
