    Nice deer guys, congrats. I'm all for any razor sharp,cut on contact head. I've been using the old style Woodsman broad heads for years with great results. When they eventually get bent, or worn from repeated sharpening, I file them down and use them on small game. I get a lot of mileage out of them.

      Jason, that "cull" deer in your pic, would be considered a pretty nice buck here around home. If a buck is lucky enough to live to his third year around here, somebody shoots him out the truck window at night before season opens.

        I made some bleed crest woodies for my Blackwidow MA2 back in '88, when 3 Rivers was in the basement of a house (I lived in Ft Wayne then, was not far away).
        Stumping with buds I broke a couple, sold them the rest of my wood arrow making supplies and have not shot them since.

        Went aluminum, and when Gold tip came out, with internal weight adjustment system, went that way and have never looked back.

        When I shot 3D I shot from the compound states, sometimes the MBR (which was out to 45 yards). Sometimes I'd skip off the belly. The carbons were still good. Aluminum would have been trashed and wood.......splintered.

        I think they look pretty good on my black metal Widows

        Yup..............searching for the "one" bow. Easier to find a smoking hot wife that can cook and isn't nuts.

        I have never found the perfect recurve, have had some good ones. The HS is heavy, the grip decent. It's as close as I have found. Could blow a lot of money continuing the quest.
        Figured I'd just stop here and adapt

          CD2 I went the same route and settled on Gold Tip traditionals, myself. The only problem I've had with them is hitting the off side leg bone on a deer a few years ago. It hit hard and made a heck of a crack when it did. I found the arrow minus the head about 20 yards down the blood trail. It splintered in to a whole bunch of thin, long strands to within a few inches of the nock. I found the deer about 50 yards further. When I butchered him, the broad head was buried in the bone. I shoot year round, almost daily, including a lot of stumping/roving and the only thing I've had to do is replace feathers once in a while. I'm sold on them.

            SingleShot and CD2, I agree with both of you fellas as to the wood arrows being so damn fragile, have replaced many in my day, more than a few from splitting the fletching shooting groups. I just went trad all the way and never gave up wood, they do have a few drawbacks, but what the heck, so do I !

                Thanks for that info CD. I will be out of the country in June, sure would have enjoyed the Cloverdale shoot ! I see they have a class ‘modern trad., that makes no sense, what is modern trad., trad is trad ?

                  Modern Trad............I dunno, maybe allow cushion plunger or short fletching?

                  Just checked:

                  IBO says bump the nock and 4" or longer fletching in reg recurve.

                  Stringwalking is allowed in another class.

                  Checked both links and really didn't see an exact breakdown of terms/classes.

                      There's also the I.B.O. traditional nationals.............dunno if one signs up for that or has to qualify at other shoots.

                      Buddy goes to E.T.A.R. (Eastern Traditional Archery Rendezvous).

                      And of course there's always Compton.

                      I've only shot Cloverdale and that was yrs ago.

                        I shot a few IBO shoots, haven't in about twelve years though. I shot with a compound so it was a little different than the traditional stuff

                          I avoided trophy shoots and the nonsense, but when buds and I went, I'd shoot from the yellow compound stakes, and sometimes the green
