Best Cheap Broadheads
One of the most important bits of bow hunting equipment is the broadhead. Why is the breadhead so important? No matter how good your bow, how well sited in it is, how good of a shot you are: the broadhead does the killing and if it’s not sharp or of poor quality, it will only injure the animal, which will be able to run away far enough for you not to find it. The animal will eventually die, after much suffering, AND you will not be able to harvest the meat. A high quality, sharp broadhead will allow you to make clean, ethical kills when hunting and be able to efficiently harvest the animal with minimal tracking.
Humans have come a long from the flint arrowheads our ancestors used to hunt their game. nowadays broadheads come in different sizes, weights, shapes, blade counts, point styles, etc. Each different combo of weight and style is meant for a different type of hunting. there are also broadheads specifically for hunting turkey (that won’t work so well against deer or other game with 4 legs).
Along with all the advancements in boardhead technology came a large spike in the price of broadheads. Some boradheads sell for $10-20 A PIECE, meaning you will be paying $30-60 for a pack of 3. However, you can get identical or similar performance from broadheads that sell for half the price. many are available for about $3 a piece that will get the job done just fine ($10 per 3 pack or $20 per 6 pack, sometimes $30 per 10 pack). Decide if you want fixed or replaceable blades, 3 or 4 blades, and make sure you get the right size and weight to work with your arrows, bow and whisker biscuit.
