You guys out there chasing the Gray Ghosts...what is your head? I prefer a good expandable on Mule Deer because our shots out west are typically a little longer than back East in the heavy wooded timber.

My Choice:

G5 -- T3
Trophy Taker -- ULMER EDGE
Trophy Ridge -- Steelhead XL

Those are my heads to choose from personally.

I'd like I try the Trophy Taker Ulmer Edge but can't in Idaho... So for me it'll be the same I use for everyrthing. Either the Trophy Taker terminal-t or shuttle-t. Leaning towards the shuttle tho...

I'm in Idaho, too, so no expandables, so I'm shooting the 100 grain Rocket Nitro by Nap. Killed 2 bucks with it. Tunes easy.

Have never tried an expandable, like a good fixed blade for Mule deer. I have shot them with mostly Magnus heads.
Currently use Magnus Buzzcuts and VPA's.

I really like the looks of the Ulmerhead but untill they come out with a 2'' cut I will probably stick with the rage. I know, Hate on, But they are flat out lethal. Just wish the would step up their QC.

I wasn't aware that RAGE had a QC department!!! jk I think that they have made some necessary improvements over the past 2 years but I have been burned by them in the past and I have 0 faith in them now personally. I am assuming that you are using a 2 blade 2"...same head on elk??

Are you running the Steelhead or the Steelhead XL??? I had really good luck with both in my expandable test this summer and had GREAT results with the XL on my KS doe. 34 yd shot ... 10 yd recovery!!!

Both. Been running those steelheads for a very long time. I still have some old ones in the box along with the new XL ones. I don't think I've killed anything yet with an XL. I think they just take quiver rides.

Can't tell ya how many deer and elk those steelheads have blown through. Love the super short head, flies really accurate.

Evan,

Unfortunately I didn't take any pics of the entry/exit due to running low on light and needing to make quick work of him. You can see the size of the hole on the entry in a few of these pics. If I remember right, you could've easily fit a golf ball in the entry hole!

If I was to shoot my compound this year I'd like to try the Ulmer Edge. Interesting head! Gonna go with either a Muzzy Phantom or a Woodsmen Elite outta my recurve this year.
