I use the 4 blade, 100 grain Magnums and they punch beautiful holes in deer. Last year was great... my deer had TWO blood trails, one from the entry wound and other from the exit. It worked out good... gave my hunting partner something to do while we tracked my deer.

Great heads and they fly just like your BH's but I got a terrible hiss from them, so I had to switch. That hiss drove me nuts.

they are great heads, but definitely practice with them before going in the woods. i had to make some minor adjustments to my rest to get them in tune. but they do fly great and are killing machines.

1.They're by far my favorite BH
2.They'll fly like fieldpoints if your bow is properly set-up and tuned
3.Blood trails are more a function of shot placement than BH type.With good shot placement,you shouldn't even need a blood trail the vast majority of the time.

I also get a hiss but have never had a deer react to it.

I myself have never noticed a hiss, ill have to check that out the next time i practice. I just switched to them this year and all i know is that they are the best flying heads i have ever used.

I've shot two bucks with them and neither bled all that much. However, neither made it more than 50 yards. I was able to see both deer fall from my stand. My buddy also shot a buck with them last year and hit too far forward and hit the shoulder. The arrow still penetrated to the opposite shoulder and the deer was down within 100 yards. They fly great and I've never noticed the hiss.

I've killed over 30 deer with slick tricks.So far,only one has made it out of sight and it was hit way too far back but still recovered.Some bleed like crazy and some bleed very little.Blood trails are more a function of where you hit them,what you hit and at what angle.Any sharp broadhead is going to produce hemorrhaging.

There is an archery only area with a lot of dmaps for sale where he lives, plus the regular tags and licenses. If you kill 5 or 6 deer a year, it doesn't take long for them to add up. I think I've been using slick tricks for 5 or 6 years now, maybe longer

Slick tricks were introduced in 2000 so 30 deer is not outlandlish even for a non traveling bowhunter

I started using ST's in 2003 when you actually had to buy them directly from the guy who makes them.He wasn't set up to market them commercially until the last few years.

I usually kill between 4-6 deer a year with a bow.I killed 10 in just the last two years.In all honesty,it's actually probably closer to 40 because I left out some Ohio kills.

This post made me curious about when they were introduced so I emailed the company and they replied that the slick tricks were introduce in 2000 at the AMO convention. In my opinion a good choice of broadhead

I first read about them on Archery talk and decided to give them a try.Back then,you'd call the owner of the company on the phone to place your order.The original blades weren't very sharp so I would have to touch them up before using them.The new blades are a huge improvement.
