    So this is my first year hunting with bow and i was wondering if anyone knew the best place to buy fixed broadheads and if so how much are they there.
    And if anyone knows where to get free broadheads please post the link.

    OK, so it's a PSE Spyder, arrows are ?sportmans? (who makes them) with Blazer vanes. What lbs is the bow, 50-60, 60-70? What draw lenth is it? Are there any numbers on the arrow shafts? Like 400, 340, etc? What kind of a release are you using? Wrist strap Index finger? Using a D-loop? Any fixed blade broadheads from the manufacturers I listed should do the trick. They all have a heathy track record. I'm just curious on what your set-up is.

    Your draw lenth is 46? Typo? How about 26". So 40lb draw weight, and 26" draw lenth, with an index finger realeas. Thats helpful. I would recomend the Magnus 2 blade Stinger. Then it's all about location buddy. Accuracy really matters, as does being patient and waiting for broadside or slight quartering away shot. You need to get both lungs or heart/lung to put them down quickly. Tuck a Stinger right in that crease behind the front leg and you should hear him drop.

    Thunderhead 100 grain. About 35.00 for 6. Replacement blades are about 15.00. I only destroyed one out of the 6.

    40lbs and 26" DL, thats why I suggested a 2 blade. He needs to get full chest width penetration, I'm not sure a thunderhead will get him that. I doubt he'll get a pass through, but at least if he can touch ribs on the far side the critter will be DOA.
