    Here's some pics from my deer season so far this year. TreeSharks are pure deer devastation.

    Wow!!!!......and I thought my SOB's did a lot of damage. Are all of these full pass-throughs. Does the convex blade work just as good with a compound/higher energy bow, or do they work better on lower KE bows. I know that sounds like a rhetorical question , but in reading how some of you have had marginal shot placement that literally gets kicked back into the vitals (because of the design), I'm wondering if it has the same effect if it was going much faster or would it deflect .

    All but number 6 was a pass through. I got a slight deflection off a small tree about the size of your thumb. It killed the penetration, but the broadhead still made it to the offside leg. I shot alot of deer with a compound bow and Simmons heads before I switched to traditional. They worked just as well at higher speeds.

    Thanks for the info..........do they resharpen easy or does that convex blades make it difficult?

    Great pics BTW, can't stop looking at them. Reminds me of Rage entry but with an actual passthru.

    Yes, they do sharpen easy. Here's a video I made showing how I do it.

    Default Tree Shark for Crossbow???

    Has anyone shot these out of a crossbow? I'm looking at several fixed head options. THis TreeShark is interesting.

    Do you think a sharp quartering away shot could get a deflection if the back end hook area hits the game first (since its so wide)?

    I hit this one on a sharp quartering away angle in 2009. I shot low, and just made a grazing shot. The arrow didn't even enter the chest cavity. One of the advantages of a concave blade is that it prevents deflections on grazing shots. When the back edge of the blade makes contact, it tends to make the head "bite" instead of glancing off.

    So, if I understand you correctly, the broadhead just ran along side the deer, busted a bunch of ribs, dug into some fatty tissue and muscle, and caused massive bleeding. Is that correct? How quickly did that deer expire?

    Yes, just a grazing shot on one lung. I shot the deer in the afternoon, had good blood on the trail, then jumped it out of its bed. I came back the next morning and recovered it. When I saw it from a distance, my first thought was the coyotes had beat me to it.

    Number 7

    Shot this one today 4 feet from the base of my tree. Ran about 50 yards and crashed.




    Blood over 5 feet high, 5 yards from the hit. My 62" longbow is leaning against the tree for reference.




    Arrow entered the top of the back, just behind the shoulder blades, and exited between the front legs. I didn't shoot it with a single bevel, it just happened to be the one I grabbed for the picture.
