GRAPHIC PIC. woodchuck

Recommended Posts

Been using some of my Rage Hypodermics to shoot woodchucks.

Been doing a number on them as in this pic. 

None have moved a foot. And all have been a bloody wreck.

Yet none have had a drop of blood on the arrow.

Have had reapers doing the same thing. Makes me scratch my head how either broahead can get through there without sign in the arrow.

 

But happy to be cutting down the number of chucks here . Still a few more left

Believe it or not the 22-250 makes them explode like this.
Anyway I am glad you posted this. It happened to me once but with deer. I shot a doe at 15 yards, crossbow/rage, and she went 30 yards. Blood allover the place but nothing on my arrow. I could not believe it. Very hard to explain.

Luny I had that happen a few winter bows ago with a 2" reaper, def hard to explain.

 

I have shot 6 chucks in the last month ( 4 with Hypos and 2 with reapers) . and everyone has not left a smear on the arrow.

Tonight I even wiped the shaft with a paper towel to see if I just wasn't seeing it. No stickiness, no smell , no blood.

No sign of the shaft going through the chuck,. '

Just weird

Weird is right. Maybe sometimes the arrow on close shots passes through so fast the bleeding simply does not happen fast enough? :shock::headscratch:

Im using them up on wood chucks, no sense in them sitting in a box.

Funny thing is they have been holding up pretty good even after going through a few chucks.

All I have had to do is change the snap rings, im liking that

I'm going to have to switch to broadheads.  I shot one right through it's head with a G5 Small Game Head and it hardly did any damage.

Hypodermics are the only heads we shoot with the crossbow for deer. Devastating. :up:

Finally - the perfect match of suitable game to the BH...   I would feel perfectly comfortable hunting gophers with a Rage anytime, anywhere.

I never shot the hypodermic. I use rage with cut on contact tip. In my mind it provides addition cutting surface but as I said I don't know the other, hypodermis, side.

The only problem is the cost:-)

So, how many shots do you get out of one rage broad head?

Hunting deer I have killed up to 3 deer with the same Brodhead. It all depends on what you hit, including the ground on the other side. I also change individual blades when they get damaged. I know some on here will change to  new head after one kill but I find this unnecessary.

I have shot 3 with the same head. But also had two missed with that same head.
