Best broadheads for elk in Montana

Recommended Posts

I'm going to Montana on September 1 to an Outfitter to bowhunt elk. The outfitter recommends fixed broadheads for elk. I have always had great success with 2 mechanical blades such as rage chisel tips, hypos, xtremes, and killzones. He said that the G5 Montecs is what most people use there. Will I be good with the expandables or should I go with a fixed head? What kind, if so? I looked at the shuttle, the tricks and the Montecs. What is the difference? I'm shooting  a 70-pound bow with approximately 340-355 Ibo at 27 1/2 "dl and Easton fmj 340s with 50 grain of bronze inserts in the front.

Unless you're like my buddy who pulled one out of the quiver, hit his string and exploded the bow while 25' up in a tree.  😂

I'm curious why you wouldnt take the advice of the outfitter in Montana over the advice of fishermen in MO.  Welcome to the forum by the way.  Good luck on your trip.

Agree that fixed blades are without question the better choice.  Make sure you tune your bow and practice with the fixed blade heads only!  Make your practice the first shot, and make it count!  Reps are just for building muscle memory and endurance...

I would add that in this world of speed heavy is good with arrows, your aluminum jacketed carbons with a 125 head and full helical fletch are worth consideration.
