Anyone use Rage Broadheads on Elk.

7 posts in this topic

I have had very good luck with Rage Broadheads on deer. Just wondering if they will have same results on elk.

I have seen people use them and the G5 tekkens on elk and have not had a problem,with that said most of my friends and me will not shoot mechanical heads for elk or moose,I will not use them anymore at all for anything exept turkeys.

They can work well, but check because some western states are banning mech heads for big game.

I would stick with a fixed head for such a bigger game for penetration issues

I use the mechanicals for turkey because of the bigger cutting diameter and the small vital area and bone structure. As far as I know most everyone will say to use mechanicals on turkeys.

    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!
