    Is a pass through or a just regular shot better? because i always thought that the broadhead if it stayed in the deer whenever it moved the blades would slice everything up inside.?? any comments

    I don't know if one is better than the other...the most important thing is placement...if the shot is good and the BH is sharp that's all you need

    Shot placement being equal, I would prefer the pass-through just for a better bloodtrail.

    i killed just as many deer w/non pass through(I consider a non pass thru even if the arrow is sticking out both side)as I have w/ complete pass throughs....

    so I also dont know if one is better than the other......

    Pass-thru!

    There about the same!
    out of all the deer ive taken, only about 50% were pass-thru!
    But they were still dead deer.
    Shot placement is the key as mention by every archer out there!:biggrin1:

    OHHHHH i got another very good question. grunt calls. ive never had no luck..only bad luck. i had a nice 8 coming to me and i grunted because he started turning and he was about 45-50 yards away and he just stopped and like darted away. i threw the call across the woods i was so mad. anythign i may have done wrong. i did a young buck grunt real lightly and quick not a blatttttttttttttttt just a click blat.

    thats true. Though a pass through will help the deer drain faster. Due to no arrow plugging the hole. But as everyone has mentioned. It wont matter if you dont place the arrow in the correct place.

    I like pass thoughs, they dont ruin my arrows then!! ACCs are not cheap, Shot placement is most important i think.

    Placement is most important, but a pass through offers a better trail to follow.

    If you have never had a pass thru, I would bet it's because you are using a broadhead that isn't sharpened to the tip. I know this debate goes on and on, but to prove it to yourself, shoot the broadheads you are using at a foam broadhead target. Next pick up some NAP RAZOR CAPS - a 3 bladed head available from most catalogs like Cabela's etc. Also shoot a field tip or whatever at the same target. You will see for yourself which head penetrates the most. There are several good cut on contact heads out there but the "RAZOR CAPS" are pre-sharpened and they fly exactly the same as field tips, which to me is VERY important. I've been bowhunting since the early 80's and have tried more different tips than I can remember. These are one of the best tips for a complete pass-thru, (even for low poundage bows) that I've seen and tried. You won't be dissapointed. And as pretty much everyone agrees, SHOT PLACEMENT is the MOST important thing no matter what you shoot! A pass thru is nice on a marginal shot because you have another hole in the animal to leave a better blood trail. On a "good" shot it doesn't matter, as the animal will go down quickly anyway, if not pushed too soon. Good Luck to you, and remember - Practice, Practice, Practice! Jeff

    I agree placement is the most important thing, since i have been bowhunting i have only shot two deer that the arrow did not pass through, let them drain out, it helps with a blood trail, especially in thicker brush.

    If you shoot them with field points and hit the right spot you will kill them.
    I prefer to get complete pass thrus for a better tracking job. If an arrow doesn't pass thru it is usually buried into bone on the opposite side, so the broadhead wont be cutting much more anyways.

    Have to agree with every one else...all that really matters is if it was a good hit.Tracking may be a little slower and if you know for sure that it wasn't a pass through,you might want to hold off a little longer before you take up tracking it to give it more time to bleed out.
