I tried to setup a poll, but don't see an option here confused I'm leaning towards the G5 Strikers, what is your vote (fixed only)?

Magnus Snuffers

G5 Striker for me. I've never tried the others.

I've shot a buck and a doe with the Strikers and both were complete pass thrus and awesome blood trails.

I'm with you on the G5 Strikers. Just started shooting them this summer. Haven't hunted with them yet, but man, do they fly nice. No reason to shoot a mechanical head anymore. Moving parts and broadheads never made much sence to me anyway.

Only other fixed blade I've shot for the last 15-20 years or so have been Thunderheads and they've always performed well for me.

As far as I'm concerned you picked three of the best fixed blades on the market to pick from (Muzzy makes a darn good product too). Last year I narrowed my choices down to: sharpen myself = Snuffer SS or replacable fixed blades = Striker.

For me, Snuffers. Or magnus 2blades, depending on the bow, but primarily it is Snuffer 125, I only trust blades I sharpen myself.

100 grain Montecs for the last two seasons and this year will be the third. They can be resharpened easily and actually killed two deer with the same head after a sharpen.

By far best cut on contact broadhead that I have tested is Steel Force. Otherwise Muzzy would have to be my next Choice. I know most are reading ths and probally have hardly heard of Steel Force but take a look at them once, Best overall Head.

G5 Strikers for me. They are replaceable, but I resharpen them when I get the time. A very solid head that is wicked sharp right out of the package. I also like how the ferrule locks in the blades. Several deer have met their demise from the striker and my bow.

All great suggestions so far... I'd put any of those in my quiver. I'll toss out another great head - the Shuttle T-Lock From Tight Point (Trophy Taker.) Fly like darts and very durable w/ replaceable blades.

G5 makes good heads but my favorite fixed blade is 4 blade slick trick or whack em. A 4 blade cut forces the tissue to pull apart better and deters closing or blockage of blood. They're killer.

    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.
