Edwin Harpole’s a lifetime hunter 1st and an outfitter 2nd. He owns Extreme Hunts in Pike County, IL and does a tremendous amount of bow hunting. So do his clients. But there is always a question mark that comes up before his hunters head for their tree stands where they are looking for beautiful Whitetail bucks.

Edwin there is a little bit of a controversy on broadheads. Discuss that. We get asked that a lot when guys come in do we allow expandables or fixed broadheads and which are best and that type of thing and I actually shoot and expandable broadhead. I think they are a good tool but you just have to make the right placement on the deer with either one you should. The proper broadhead is the properly placed broadhead. Most expandables do a great job if you don’t put it in the front shoulder area. You can not penetrate the front shoulder area with most expandables. A fixed head will go through the front shoulder area but if you get back behind that area the expandables will do more damage internally to the deer so the deer will run less distance that way but you do have to have proper placement. It is not the broadhead itself it is the placement. So both have positive features? That’s correct and they both do a good job if they are placed in the proper place and that is what it all boils down to whether it is a muzzle loader for a shotgun for a broadhead, it is shot placement.
