I have never shot at a moose but I am sure a well placed shot with a good sharp broadhead and a heavy arrow will work just fine... I am not familiar with the razorback broadheads are they a fixed blade head?

Should work fine if you get a good shot placement.

Bullfiddle, the NAP Razorbacks are a fixed 4 blade cut on contact that spin on an arbor

It will work just fine. Big shoulder and big kill zone on these guys. Wait for the foreleg to stride forward to avoid the shoulder and it will go right thru. Oh ya sometimes they like to charge once you stick em so carry your side arm. Guy at my work was driven into the mud last year after he shot one with his bow!

I just can't see how killing a moose would pay off... they are big, slow, and dumb. I could have gotten close enough to stab one last year in Maine and they aren't overly hard to track...

enjoy getting it out of the woods too

Dare ya to try it. I'll film it and put it on you tube . You have to either quarter them and back pack them out or you drag them out with a atv. During the rut they are chasing cows and very aware of the human in the woods. When did you see them in the summer when the knats drive them to the road side for some relief? Go ahead and take them for granted like this guy did.

Just cause you had a bad expierience with a MOOSE... Don't hate...

I've heard hunting moose is tough you wouldn't think a 1500# horse with a truck bumper on his head could get through the thick like they do...
I can only imagine a shot in BOW RANGE would be twice as difficult to get...
A friend of mine said you can smell them before you see them that's how thick they like it...

Good luck, I hope you draw a tag. A moose hunt sure sounds like a good time. Don't forget to take a good bug suit.

Your rig will work fine on moose. I shot a shiras with a 60 lb bow. It went 40 yards and was dead in probably 30 seconds. Shot placement is important.
