New York legal mechanical broadhead

Postby alpha32dude on Mon Sep 14, 2009 9:20 am

Hi everyone, new to this forum. Hope someone can point me to a mechanical broadhead that is legal in New York. It seems if the broadhead does not lock open it would be legal. The following is cut from the NY DEC website -

"Barbed broadheads are illegal for hunting big game. A barbed broadhead is one in which the angle formed between the trailing or rear edge of any blade and the shaft is less than 90 degrees. Broadhead examples on the right compare one that is barbed to three that are legal. Broadheads with retractable blades are legal. Broadheads with mechanical blades are legal if the blades DO NOT form a barb or hook when the arrow is pulled from the flesh of a deer or bear."

So do any mechanical broadheads fit this requirement?

Thanks,
Sal

Alpha, I instruct Hunters Ed for NYS DEC.....ALL mechanicals are legal as long as they don't lock in the open position thus creating a barbed head...I use Rockets myself and love them..hope this helps!! Welcome to EDER'S!!!!! Let us know what head you chose.. ;)

Widow and I have easily taken over 100 whitetail with Rocket heads, not saying there the best, just saying they don't fail and leave rediculous holes and blood trails. I tried a 3 blade Rage on pigs (my proxy before deer) and have had deployment failure, so you may want to stay away from them. I understand the 2 blades seem to work fine.The spitfires work well also. hope this helps. DFA

I think the rage 3 blade head has had some issues with the blades not being able to close, so I think many states consider them a barbed head. Just the 3 blade version, not the 2 blade.

I don't know about how NY treets the 3 blade Rage, but it does have opening up issues. If your a Rage fan, try the 2 blade. DFA

Somebody did hear something about the Hunor Silver broadhead?
it seems they are similar to the well known "German Kinetics" but quite cheaper.
If someone used it, please I would like to know his opinion

Hello!
They are tops of incomparable quality - price.
The used material, steel ... it is stailess steel of the first quality.
I have proved them and am very satisfied.
They fly so well as the field and cost less than other tops than low quality.
For the price that they have it is worth proving and judging them if they are what is looked.
They are very very robust.

Best Reguards
