What happens when you take seven mechanical broadheads, two experienced hunters, 18 hours and wide-open spaces on Colorado’s high plains? A killer field test gets filmed, and a lot of fun is had. By fun we mean holes punched through thick cow bones, fingers cut (oops) and lots of fresh-squeezed juice is made.

The outdoor industry is chock-full of sweet must-have gear, and many bowhunters are tackle fanatics. There’s one small problem with this equation: It’s not always easy to cut to the chase and get down to what really works for hunters. For the most part, manufacturers make and test great products. But how do those quality-control measures really look and feel in the field?
