    Ulmer broadheads

    Recently purchased some ulmer broadheads to see how they fly, which is great, but wondering how they have
    performed as far as penetration and overall head performance on live animals such as elk. Has anyone had
    an oppourtunity to harvest a deer or elk with this head, would appreciate hearing how it worked out.

    I shot a mule deer buck with mine. 45 yards it broke the offside shoulder and buried in the dirt on the other side. I was really impressed.

    Congrats cooper, sounds like a good shot glad to hear that broadhead can break bone, did the broadhead come through intact

    I've always been a huge fan of the rocky mountain gator head, been shooting them for like 20 years and deer sized game. When I saw the Ulmer I new I had to try them out! After doing some testing and seeing others test results I decided to take them with me on my archery hunt for elk down in Wy this past fall!
    I ended up taking a bull I thought I'd only dream about, cutting him and his herd off and getting a 26 yard broadside shot!
    I was shooting an Axis arrow out of an Elite archery Z28 bow set at 60# and 29.5" draw.
    The shot took him high lung, the Ulmer had to bust those big ribs going in and coming out "THWACK!" The axis shaft was buried up to the vanes and when he turned to blow out of there I could see the Ulmer sticking about a foot out his off side and I knew he was in big trouble! He ended up running down hill and piling up only about 60 yards away, he was dead in seconds!
    The broadhead looked to be in perfect condition, not bent or chipped up. I could definitely use it again.
    So I have to give it two big thumbs up!
    Look for my story in an upcoming EBJ!

    Love those gators too. I gave a buddy of mine a broadhead to use after he lost a doe and a nice buck using expandable Tru-fire heads.

    He shot the 3rd deer at just over 50 yards from the ground, at last light, and cresting a hill. The gators did the job.

    Anyways, I am happy to read folks having success with the Ulmer. I think I'll try them this season on elk and Muleys here in CO.

    Wow nice shot great bull, I have used axis arrows for several years and like them thinking I will give ulmers a try this fall, have been
    shooting them a lot lately. Have always used fixed blades so this will be a big step for me but tired of constant tunning to try
    and get fixed blades to shoot well. Anyway congrats on a nice bull.
