    How do you guys feel about reusing expandable broad heads that have been shot at a deer and passed through cleanly or missed and hit the dirt. Also there is no visable damaged. Specifically rage 2 blades.

      I have personally harvested three deer with the same Rage 3-blade broadhead and arrow. All three were broadside, double-lung, pass throughs that buried several inches into the mud. All ran less than 100 yrds and the broadheads performed perfectly.

      New is always the best bet, but so long as they are not damaged, you can get more than one kill from each head.

          I don't see any issues, as long as there isn't any visible damage. Though you always want to try to kill a deer in the most humane manner (which means having sharp broadheads) it isn't like a firearm where there could be hidden dangers underneath the surface.

            By broadhead, I meant blades. There is no scientific evidence that says broadheads are more effective than mechanicals...

              If there is no damage they should be fine and as long as the blades are still sharp I say use them. shots in the dirt can ding up blades pretty good.

                Alpha, Google Dr. Ashby reports. He provides a lot of data about broadheads. It is very interesting, in-depth and covers years of work.

                  buckhunter, you may try to impress me with your "facts," fancy "science," and "indisputable evidence," but I'm a hunter and fisherman and I stand by my snake oil, lies, and hunting advertisements.
