    After watching the review of Iron Will Broadheads posted by @Bowhuntr64 I’m seriously considering ordering a six pack of the 100 grain single bevel heads with a little custom engraving on the back bevel.

    Not sure I can justify the $280 price tag for six broadheads though. $25 of that is for the engraving, but still.....

    Aw c’mon man! I’m not old yet and I was 19 years out of high school in 2000.

    Also, the last time Adam and I hunted together we figured out that he is about the same age as my oldest son. Now THAT is a bit depressing. :lol:

    I'm not old either, but takes a few moments like that to realize I'm not young anymore either :lol:

    They will last you a lifetime, even with all the kills you make each year!! Bought 3 of the wide blades 1st, made noise as they flew, then the single bevels came out, bought 3 pack , burned 1 as a practice head, super impressed with flight and the pass thru on a 3d target, no shots on deer yet. Practice head is still sharp.

    What worries me the most is the extremely rocky terrain I hunt here at home. Almost every full pass through results in a destroyed broadhead or at the very least destroyed blades. These are awfully high priced for that.

    I thought maybe I could go very heavy up front and slow the arrow down a bit but then the momentum would still blow through the deer and the result would be the same.

    I got them back in 2017 for a elk trip. Amazing head, but I don't feel they are worth the price. Just wait til you lose one in the woods after shooting at a deer. That $40 head really hurts when that happens. But other wise very sharp and durable. Though there are better deals out there.

    Never seen so many rocks! I could've shot at a turkey last year down there and I knew I was kissing that broadhead goodbye if I did. Glad I never got a great shot at any of them actually.

    I shot at a buck in my valley about 9 years ago. He ducked and the arrow went above the spine. After it went through the deer it center-punched a boulder.

    All I ever found of the arrow was a 4” piece of the shaft with blood smeared fletching.

    Last season one of my arrows passed through a deer and deflected off a boulder. I saw the nocturnal sailing off into the forest never to be seen again.

    The Ozarks are broadhead killers AND arrow killers.

    Did some scouting this evening and found a good one summering in the same spot the buck I killed 2yrs ago was. Gonna set some cams to see if he’s traveling where I think he is. Should finish out a solid buck. Here’s a grab from the video.
