No closed season on these guys considering they aren't supposed to be here. Lol

    Hey great post. I tried a 5/32 bolt with a 1" washer as a blunt, from 15-20yds same point of impact, didnt try and further shots, but free and accurate is great! love this forum.

    I've meant not to shoot the cats with these arrowheads - if you miss their skulls i don't think the impact would be deadly enough. However the groundhawgs will be a good target .... unless Someone up there decides that it's not cool to kill in one of His homes on Sunday (and i don't mean the pastor)

    I agree, cats should only be shot with broadheads. Too hard to head shoot consistently.

    Pretty sure that this will do the job on a feral cat. Which, by the way, are eating the local quail population, as well as tree rats. any bunnys, and so on.

    As long as the cat isn't armored, that thing should go right through it. I'd think you'd have as good of a pass through as a judo point, and I have shot several rabbits with those and gotten clean pass throughs. Sharpen the wings on the nuts, and you might have something that would even take down a coyote. A friend of mine used to use adder points, but turn them around so the "legs" were pointing forwards. That really put a whallop on small game.

    i just picked up some new field points last night. they're for carbons instead of aluminum arrows. they have a longer shank on them. so i put 2 and 2 together,came out to 3 and ended up with this.

    It seems like all these would blow right thru a small animal and end up destroying the arrow once it hit the ground?

    not so far. theyve been shot through a metal tool box and metal coffee cans into the ground and no damage to the head or shaft yet. ive been playing w these since early spring and no issues. i also shoot from my roof at soda cans,gatorade bottles,etc for practice with these heads. they work awesome.
