"Slick Tricks"

Anyone use slick trick broadheads on elk? If so how were your results? Thanks in advance for your comments.

I have shot several elk, two of them being bulls, and a few deer with Slick Trick Mags. All have died quickly with two holes and good blood trails.

I really like these heads. Tough, thick blades. It usually didn't take too much tuning to get them to fly as I wanted them to.
My only little complaint is they are a touch loud in the air, but so far it hasn't affected me negatively yet.

Harvested two nice blacktail bucks this year with the four blade slick tricks. Heart shot one a 90 yards, both times hit bone (ribs) and had solid penetration and massive trauma. I feel extremely confident with them and any fixed blade is going to give you better results than an expandable in my opinion as long as your accurate with them. Especially with a big animal like an elk.

I really like the regular slick tricks. I have had complete pass through on every animal I've shot and have not had an animal run more than 20 yards after being shot. They fly well out for distance also. I practice out to 90 yards and hit pretty consistent.

Last year shot a bull from 44 yards. Complete pass through with both holes big enough to put your thumb though. They also shoot as accurate as field tips out to 60 yards

Thanks for all the feedback. I am hoping to put them to the test in a few weeks on my first archery elk hunt. I agree with the comments from 82nd. I can see no difference at all shooting field tips versus the slick trick broadheads. I am using the Magnum 1 1/8" blades. They work great on deer but I have never bow hunted for elk.

Thanks!

Standards are way easier to tune, and fly truer. Shot a dozen or so elk and deer with them, everyone I hunt with shoots them with great results.

I got a great buy on some magnum 100's and have been shooting them the last few weeks. They seem to fly comparably to the viper tricks in 100 grain That I have been using. I shoot an Elite Energy 35 at 62 lbs so im not pushing the envelope on speed. I had no problem getting them to tune.

I shoot the Slick Trick 100s' ,I have killed 2 elk and 2 mule deer, all 4 were complete pass thru. These broad heads fly like darts , they are by far the best I have ever shot , I switched from Rocket Ultimate Steal heads after a blade broke inside an elk I shot...As long as they make them I will never change, that little bitty broad head is absolutely devastating!

Thanks again for the additional comments. I am comfortable shooting these broadheads out to 50 yards. I will be hunting elk for the first time in September and hope to put the slick trick Magnums to the test.
