Making meat part two.

Recommended Posts

    What can I say fellows?

       I am a meat eater and making meat is what I did this season. A nice big bodied deer but just was not carrying much for headgear. Look at It this way. I left the big deer for the kids this weekend and trophy hunters that want a big racked one.  Funny point coming out of his skull below the normal base. Mrs. BilletHead is mad :) . She says you go out three times and kill two deer. She went out morning and Evening yesterday in that cold wind. Does would not give her a shot and two sub legal bucks came by.

Way to go Marty. I had to put a hold on the deer for a bit. Put 4 in the freezer by the second week. Will chase turkeys/ walleye till the end of the month then try to put a couple more deer in the deep freeze.

Don't even get me started on this statement Duane!

It's just the jealousy talking. Congrats to both of you!

What BH's do the BH's use?  LOL  Curious on how they performed and what recovery was like.  I'm using 2in Schwacker mechanicals... Still untested, but came recommended from a friend.

          I use the same thing you are using. The doe was liver into back of lung. She went maybe 45 yards and I heard her crash. Got down and walked right to her. Buck double lung and he went maybe 50 yards into a bean field slowing down until he piled up. I watched it all happen. One thing I like about the Schwacker is the blade thickness. I am all about sharpening heads and or blades. Up until three years ago when I had to give up my selfbows  I shot zwickeys and could sharpen them to scalpel sharp with files and then diamond hones. Then a strop on leather. That was when I was not using stone points. So I can take the Schwacker blades out of the point. Grab with small vice grips and work them on diamond hones. Then strop on leather. They will be sharper than factory when I am done. If you hit bone they will bend some but not break. If I cannot get them flat for sharpening they go into trash. Here is where this mornings point ended up. Had to saw it out and then brake the wood around it. It is now apart, washed and drying. Later or tomorrow it will be ready to go again :)

     You can see in this photo the blades are partially closed. The exit hole in the buck is a great gash and it had fully opened. All I can figure is as the arrow exited the other side is was slowing down some and the quick slow down allowed the blades to swing forward some before entering the punky wood on the out side of the log?

Good deal!   Takes away any hesitation I had about the mechanicals.  Glad you found your arrow too!  Little suckers are pricey by the time you get a broadhead on there.  Thanks for the info sir!

Nice picture BH. I also shoot Schwackers 100 grain. Shot probably 25 deer, 10 coyotes, few turkey with them, and have never had a malfunction.  The yote the other day succumbed to it in a hurry. Shot Rage for years before that, but im a huge Hank Parker fan, and chatted with him afew years back here at Bass Pro. He convinced me to try them, and now thats all wife and i use with our compounds.
