What are some good ones just getting started into Xbows,
I also hunt with a xbow here in Utah.I always say this, mostly because I spent a lot of time, and a bit of money, testing arrows and broad-heads. But in my opinion a VPA broad-head can't be beat. I like the 150 grain, 3 blade, non-vented version myself. Super easy to resharpen, and milled from a single piece of steel, everyone is perfect.
You can keep them on your arrows for practice year round, resharpen them and go hunting without changing anything They are the only broad-head I have used to kill more than one animal with. They are also the only head, of very many that I tried, that could make it through a cinder block.
The last deer I shot, my arrow went straight through a rib on the way in, and out through the humerus bone, didn't even slow it down and I never did find that arrow. The deer went less than 25 yards before falling over dead.
I have started playing with a crossbow, don't like it at all, but someday in the not too distant future that will be my only choice. They shoot far better than I can with a crossbow. I always thought a cross bow was cheating..until I got one. Big and awkward to carry, slow to load and shoot, and just a plain old all around pain in the butt. I now consider my bow to be a far better choice. Light and easy to carry, fast shots can be had, and you can even get a second shot if you need to. Not happening with a cross bow, not even close.
Best of luck.
