“What the # ☠@✴ happened to my target?”
“Calm down. What’s wrong?”
“The stupid thing is completely destroyed after only a few days!”
“What type of arrowheads were you using?”
This is the conversation I had a few days ago with a friend on the phone.
He was raging and calling me names because a target, I had recommended to him, had been torn into pieces in just a few days.
Unfortunately, he was using broadheads on a target that was designed for target arrows only.
Don’t follow that bad example.
Choose the correct arrowhead and you will save yourself a lot of trouble!
Hi, I am Moritz and I am a huge archery fan.
When starting out with archery, you might not really know what arrowhead you should choose.
Every arrowhead has his very specific use.
Make sure you know that before choosing. But don’t worry, I have got you covered!
Let me show you now what the best arrowheads for sale are right now!
Target arrowheads, also known as “field points” are perfect for practicing archery before you go out hunting.
Field points can be used on almost every target. (Only some targets for kids can’t be used with them. Make sure to read the instructions!)
While they are not as sharp as broadheads, do not underestimate them!
They can cause serious injuries or death when used on a person or animal.
Never aim or shoot at a person! No matter what type of arrow you are using!
The very affordable Trophy Taker Tight Point Field Tips come in a pack of 12 arrowheads that can be easily screwed on your arrows.
Their pointed shape makes it easy for them to penetrate the target but it’s also easy to pull them out again.
You can get the Trophy Taker Tight Point Field Tips here on Amazon.com.
When you are done practicing and want to go on a hunt, you’ll have to consider getting broadheads.
Don’t shoot broadheads on normal targets!
Most target can’t withstand broadheads for long.
Make sure to buy a special target if you want to use broadheads on it.
Those arrow tips are very sharp and made for cutting skin and flesh.
Most of them have three razor-sharp blades that form the arrow tip.
I want to recommend the G 5 Outdoors Montec Broadheads to you.
They are made of 100% steel and feature a “cut on contact” tip, which cuts fur, skin, and muscles easily and causes heavy bleeding.
That is very important to take down bigger animals as fast as possible.
Most arrows don’t kill instantly. The cause of death is often shock or blood loss.
Therefore, it is important to have an effective arrowhead to minimize the suffering of the hunted animal.
With a strong bow and these broadheads, you will be able to hunt big game as well es small game.

Small game hunters often prefer to use blunt arrowheads to bring down their prey
Arrows with a blunt arrowhead kill just as easily than other arrows but they do it with shock trauma, causing damage to internal organs.
This is especially an advantage when you are planning on using the pelts of the game, as the pelt hardly gets damaged by a blunt arrowhead.
There are two blunt arrowheads I would like to talk about:
The first is the Saunders Bludgeon Screw-In Small Game Head.
The name says it all:
It is a blunt arrowhead which is perfect for hunting small game like rabbits, squirrels, etc.
Like most modern arrowheads it can be just screwed on your arrow shaft.
It is made of tough plastic and withstands hits that would usually break a shaft.
So if you miss your target and hit a hard surface your arrow and arrowhead will most likely not break!
If you are a small game hunter, don’t wait and get the Saunders Bludgeon Screw-In Small Game Head on here.
The second blunt arrowhead I highly recommend to you is a Judo Arrowhead or “Judo Point“.
The NuoYa001 Judo Arrow Points are perfect for archery practice or small game hunting.
They have a similar purpose as the Saunders Bludgeon arrowheads I introduced to you earlier, but they have a special feature:
As you can see on the picture they have 4 spring arms that will stop them from burying themselves into a soft surface, like earth, leaves, etc.
This makes it much harder to lose or break one of those arrows if you miss your target.
They will also not penetrate the pelt of an animal or the bark of a tree (if you are practicing by shooting at trees).
Like all the other arrowheads I introduced on this page, the Judo Arrow Points are just screwed on the arrow shaft.
You can easily switch between the different arrow types depending on what you are planning to shoot at.
Now, you have to make a choice:
Are you a target archer or a hunter?
If you are a hunter, what are you hunting?
I personally recommend getting a set of blunt arrowheads and broadheads if you are hunting.
You can equip half of your arrows with blunt arrowheads and the other half with broadheads and then can just load the arrow type depending on what kind of animal you are aiming and shooting at.
Let’s sum up the different arrowheads I mentioned today:
Let me know which arrowheads you are using at the moment by dropping some lines in the comments.
I am looking forward to discussing this topic with you and answer any questions you might have.
Have a great day,
