Get both lungs and any broadhead will work. Don’t get both lungs and the odds are the elk will not be recovered.

I'll be getting the stinger looking broadheads too. I'll figure out what flies best.
400 spine, 2" vane arrows in bound, and checking out automatic lighted arrow knocks. Says adds 20 grains to arrow weight.
Sure hope I bounce back from back surgery to enjoy archery again...

the last elk bulls and cows son and i have shot were with Elmer heads now called Sevr this is an expandable head and works very well ,i have in the past used other expandable broadheads they did not kill the bulls that fast . my 1st bull was with a Zwickey Eskimo 125 gr. that broadhead is a great cut on impact if you shoot a slower bow and have the ability to sharpen a broadhead . good luck , Pete53

Got those broadheads in and sharpness is a bit to be desired.
Took a diamond sharpener to one, and it's better, but not hair shaving sharp.
I think I'll go back to what I used years ago.
A thunderhead, 100gr this time tho.
Those blades are sharp.

+1, no broadhead will make up for poor shot placement. Broadside or quartering away only for me.

Slick Tricks are RAZOR SHARP out of the package, they fly "as straight as an arrow" lol

The arrows I use with them are Gold Tip Kenetic XT 300. I shoot with an older bow a Darton Vaper and FPS is around 290-300. Great Broadhead - Arrow combination.

My LR scope is a Huskemaw Blue Diamond 5-20x50. It's awesome.

Slick trick magnums are the best! And they aren't super expensive. I've killed two bulls with them, and they have performed flawlessly.

Hi firstcoueswas80, isn't it amazing how pure they fly? Never seen a broadhead so accurate, dependable and deadly, with zero spin in flight.
