    Default Neither

    Neither. For moose I switch to a cut-on-impact Magnus 125-150 grain. If I was to use my ST's, the 125's.

    For moose I would also recommend the cut on contact Magus. Last year I shot a spike fork with a 125 gr. slick trick and did not get a complete pass thru. It was just under the hide on the offside. Did not hit any bone other than ribs. Shot him a second time in the same place with a 100 gr. Magus Stinger and got a complete pass thru.

    Default Magnus

    I have trouble using any other broadhead for moose or griz. In my experiance with them they loose alot of their energy really fast.

    I have to agree. The ST's are a chopping cutting action as opposed to the slicing action of a Magnus or other cut-on-impact broadhead due to the angle of the blades. More energy lost and more energy required to penetrate the skin.

    Wink Slick Tricks

    I've used the 100gr Magnums for various animals including moose and they have provided plenty of penetration and lots of blood to follow, even though they usually fall over before they get out of sight!

    Default slicktrick help

    Shot a nice bull last year with a 100 gr slicktrick (standard, not magnum). He went over 100 yards double lunged. I think I'll use 100 gr mags this year for moose. Get them off their site and get them early as they tend to run out closer to hunting season. Good luck...field point accurate and super strong!
