really dont hunt geese with my bow but ive taken a lot of diffrent game (2 or 3 geese, deer, squrriels, rabbits, possom, ground hog, and a raccon!) with my Muzzy 4-blades, they are killer, just about any fixed blade should work, not that stupid expandable crap

my goal for the year is to get one with my longbow and a stone point. i have some metal trade points a buddy of mine forged for me though so im going to use those first and see how hard it will be before i go and possibly trash some of my stone heads. i would guess any fixed blade broadhead would work on a goose though. when i shot my compound i always used 100grain thunderheads, i bet they would do some damage to a honker. anyone here ever try getting a goose with a bow before? i think im going to use my powerhunter blind instead of a coffin blind for it and have the bow right across my lap. then i should be able to just sit up and draw on the birds before they land in the spread, in theory haha.

IMO they are a 1 time use deal if you miss, and you got to be damn good to use them! personaly i dont trust those heads over 30 yards to hit anything, just the sheer size of them will effect accuracy greatly, they are a cool idea but just arient worth a dime hunting. if you can hit a gallon milk jug at 40-50 yards you should be able to smoke a goose with a bow and kill it before it flys off with an arrow. ive got one goose ever with my bow at my nighboors lake and i pulled a sneak from behind some cedars and was able to get about a 35ish yard shot and it flopped around for a bit before i was able to run it down and break its neck :grooving:

I'm going after them using flu-flu with a "snaro" tip. Available from Cabelas, http://www.cabelas.com/p-0027604412354a.shtml.

Will be trying both pass shooting and decoying from a laydown blind. Been practicing on clay pigeons, they are dang hard to hit.

Hopefully I can get a video.

:yes: :thumbsup:

Clipped broadheads work well on any birds, geese included. Just take any cut-on-contact tip broadhead and cut (clip) the tip off so it's flat. This will hinder penetration, which is a good thing when bird hunting. Plus, it makes things a heck of a lot safer when you start flinging arrows into the air :thumbsup:
