Here is a nice cow elk Mike Yancy took with an Abowyer Brown Bear broadhead on the end of a Wilderness Custom arrow. Mike found both lungs and arrow was a full pass through. Nice shooting Mike, congratulations!
Here is Joel Turner with a bull he took during a 5 day bivy hunt back in some tough country. Joel took this bull with his A&H Archery ACS long bowand Abowyer Wapiti.
Joel Says: "He went about 20 yards and fell over, the Abowyer had cut off the top of his heart, smoked both lungs and lodged in the far shoulder. All of the equipment performed flawlessly in the back-country. I have yet to have a bull go over 20 yards when struck with the Abowyer Brown Bear!!!!!"
Nice work Joel, Keep them coming!

Matt Peterson with his first bow elk. Matt writes
"I want to thank ABOWYER BROAD HEADS for making this hunt possible. I don't think without the setup I had that I would have recovered my first elk taken with a bow. I took this bull with a ABOWYER BROWN BEAR. This head is amazing. As you can see in the picture the shot placement was not perfect thanks to hitting a small twig. The shot went right throughout the thickest part of the shoulder blade and it went through the other shoulder blade and was sticking out the opposite side. Truly amazing. I had this same hit on the first ever elk hunt I went one 8 years ago and only got 1 inch of penetration. Needless to say I never recovered the elk. This will be my new setup for some time. I used to think that speed kills. Boy was I mistaken. Weight in your broad head and arrow makes the kill. This bull went 70 yards and expired. With an amazing blood trail. My hunting buddy that was hunting with me on this trip made a trade with me for 6 of these heads and paid for all the gas on our trip. I made him a believer. Thanks ABOWYER BROAD HEADS for making this hunt a success."
Thanks for the kind words Matt. We are certainly glad to be a part of the memory of your first bow elk.
Here is Russell Thornberry with his elk. Russell writes:
"Thought you might like to see the bull elk I shot this season with your fine 175-grain, single bevel broadhead, shot from my home-made, 46-pound-pull, sinew-backed Osage longbow. Shot completely through him. Clipped a rib going in, took both lungs and the top of his heart.
He went 15 yards and dropped in his tracks. Thank you for your part in my success."
Thanks Russell and congrats on a great trophy!
Here is Chris Wison with his Elk he took with his Abowyer broadheads. Nice work Chris.
Calbert Martinez with a nice looking New Mexico Elk. This bull ended up coming within ten yards and presented Calbert with a shot. Calbert took the shot, complete pass-through, and this bull traveled a short distance before expiring. Congrats on your successful hunt
Here is Alan Palic with his bull he took in Wyoming. He took this bull with his custom ground Abowyer broadheads.
Here is championship elk caller Joel Turner with his Washington Roosevelt Bull. He took this nice bull with his longbow and his Abowyer broadheads at 15 yards. Nice work Joel!
Bjorn Ahlblad shot this Utah Cow Elk at less than 3 yards-she stopped momentarily on the other side of a bush he was using for cover. His Elk set up is a 64" ACS CX with cedar arrows and Abowyer Brown Bears. The Elk never stood a chance; the broadhead went right through the heart and she was down in 25 yards
Adam Ahlblad took this beautiful Bull Elk in the Cache Valley Utah using his 64" 50# ACS CX and Abowyer Brown Bear broadheads and Douglas Fir Arrows. The 18 yard shot cleanly penetrated both lungs and the Bull went about 35 yards and left a great blood trail
Here is Phil Hiestand with a bull that he took on his first ever elk hunt in Wyoming. Phil was using a 145 grain Abowyer bone head with a 100 grain adapter to have a total head weight of about 250 grains. The arrow was a Carbon Express Maxima 350 and it was shot out of a Bowtech Destroyer. The elk only traveled about 40 yards before collapsing. Congrats on your first elk Phil
Larry Hanify with a nice Wyoming cow taken with a 145 grain Abowyer bonehead with a 100 grain screw in adapter for a broadhead weight of 250 grains. The arrow used was a 340 full metal jacket so combined broadhead arrow weight was about 620 grains. The arrow broke ribs on the entrance and broke the ribs and scapula on the exit. The elk only traveled 20 yards before expiring. Now the real work after the shot begins
Here is Adrian Farmer with a big 6 x 6 elk he took with an Abowyer brown bear and a total arrow weight of 665 grains which worked great as he achieved a complete pass-through breaking ribs on entry and exit. This big elk only traveled thirty yards before quickly expiring
Here is Brent Hahn with his Wyoming elk taken with a screw in stainless 260 grain brown bear. He shot this elk at about 30 yards. Nice shooting Brent

''To make a long story short, I ended up calling in a weary spike bull to 30 yards broadside. Im pretty sure he knew I was there but still uncertain to what I was. Had he known that he would have ''bolted'' much sooner than he did. I had already pulled back when he came out from behind a tree, broadside. I loosed the arrow and I am certain had he not jumped the string, the arrow would have struck right behind the shoulder where I was looking. However he really jumped the string and by the time the arrow arrived at the spot I picked, he was already facing 90 degrees away and his belly was practically dragging on the ground as he tried to gain some footing to launch. but launch he did not, for the arrow struck him directly into the center of the vertebrae that attched to the skull. Once the arrow stuck him, he folded up instantly and crashed to the ground without moving. I ran up to him and immediatley sent an arrow behind his elbow taking out both lungs and heart, which I believe I successfully accomplished. The bull expired in less than 30 seconds
