Elk Hunts

By Jason Abel

One of the big questions that comes up year after year is what type of broadhead I should use for that particular animal. That is a great question; you don’t want to take a knife to a gun fight.

Big Game: Elk & Moose

So, let’s start off with big game when you’re hunting elk or moose. You’re going to want to use a broadhead that is made for this type of animal. What we recommend and from years of hunting elk you want 3 blade, fixed blade broadhead or a mechanical broadhead that’s been purposely made for this type of animals. Examples are Ramcat, Muzzy, slick trick, Trocar or Grimreaper.

Deer & Antelope

When you’re going after something a little bit smaller like deer or the great Wyoming antelope you could use a two bladed mechanical. Example might be Rage or G5. But, just remember one thing placement is very important with any broadhead and that goes along with practice, practice and practice. You owe it to yourself but most important you owe it to the animal. It shows respect!

Hunt Practice

You spent a lot of money on these trips you need to be ready and prepared. I recommend joining some type of archery club and practicing at least once a week and when the season gets closer try to get 2 to 3 times in a week. Practice at further distances for example, at 60 to 70 yards this will help you in the long run and you will become a better shooter at closer distance. I hope this helps and until then, aim small miss small.
