    I'm getting ready for the season (can ya tell!)

    Can I shoot my real muzzy's for target practice if I sharpen them before I use em out in the woods or is this a no-no? I've always used the practice blades or tips I wasn't taking out in the woods but does it really matter?

    I got a couple of real ones that i use just to make sure all is well....but i take a pc of sand paper and take the sharp edge off them.seems like the practice blades bend easy.

    Personally I don't use Muzzy, but that doesn't matter. When I get replaceable blade heads I use the ones that come with them for practice. In other words they are not only replaceable, but expendable--not expandable.

    I am too lazy to resharpen them and probably couldn't get them as sharp anyway. Just buy a couple packs of new blades. Change them out the night before season opens and you're set to go.

    Your NOW practice blades are good for many seasons.

    I have practiced with and then sharpened by hunting heads before. But now I just buy replacement blades.
