    Default expanable broadhead trouble

    I have both expandable and fixed blade broadheads and I am trying to decide which style I like better. Unfortunately the only time i get to shoot an expandable is when I shoot an animal, so I dont have a lot of practice with them. I have a 3D target, but shooting an expandable broadhead into it is not really an option. I have tried this before, as well as into a bale of hay, and it just gets stuck and I have to dig it out. Is there a better way or a certain target to use for expandable broadhead practice?

    I don't understand why you have to dig them out unless they lock out. If thats the case, get a box and fill it with rags, you'll still have to pull things apart but at least you won't be tearing up your target.

    Wrap some duct tape around the blades so they cant open. I have also used small zip ties.
