What Are You Hunting?

 

The GrizzlyStik System Works on ALL Big Game


Bowhunters contact us all the time and ask, "What do I need"? That's why we created this section - it's easy - for our basic recommendations select the game animal you're hunting below. If you want more info - click on the picture or the "Read more..." links and you'll see our in-depth recommendations for the appropriate GrizzlyStik gear for specific animals and animal groups.

 

 

Elephant & Hippo:

Minimum total arrow and broadhead weight - 1250 grains. We’ve had tremendous success on Elephant and Hippo when the bowhunters used GrizzlyStik Safari or Momentum 175 Arrows – cut to the optimum length for their bow and weighted to 1250 grains - tipped with a 315 grain Ashby or Nanook one-piece forged single bevel broadhead that matched the twist of their feathers or vanes.

Cape Buffalo, Giraffe, Asiatic Water Buffalo:

Minimum total arrow and broadhead weight - 950 grains. We’ve had tremendous success on these animals when bowhunters used GrizzlyStik Safari or Momentum 175 arrows – cut to the optimum length for their bow and weighted to 950 grains - tipped with 315 grain Ashby or Nanook forged single bevel broadheads that matched the twist on their feathers or vanes.

Other Really Big Game:

Minimum total arrow and broadhead weight - 650 grains. Dr. Ashby’s tests confirm that 650 grains is the "magic bullet" for breaching heavy bone. Shoot at least 650 grains for really big game like; moose, bison, eland, kudu, the big bears, elk and big hogs. All of our arrows; can be set up to hit 650 grains. All of our broadheads perform well in this category, but consider shooting the heaviest you can. Heavier broadheads increase your FOC (Forward of Center) so they’ll penetrate deeper after splitting any bone encountered on the way in.

Elk:

Minimum total arrow and broadhead weight - 650 grains. (That's to get through heavy bone - if something happens and your arrow strikes bone on the near side.) We know that 400 grain setups work quite often, but... Elk are tough! It's common for a bowhunter shooting a light fast setup to get terrible penetration. It happens all the time, we talk to bowhunters daily who have experienced this, and they don't want to ever lose a nice bull again. At least not when the answer is as easy as shooting the GrizzlyStik system. Read more...

 


 

All Other Big Game:

The heaviest arrow that you can live with the trajectory. We’ve been spreading the word that momentum means much more than kinetic energy but the industry has many bowhunters believing light fast set-ups are best. Not true. All our arrows and all our broadheads work great on smaller big game like deer and turkey. Especially for those shooting lightweight bows, an efficient arrow and broadhead setup can make a 45# - 50# bow perform like a 60# bow. Read more...

 


 

Turkey:

For turkey use the heaviest arrow that you can live with the trajectory. The wider the broadhead the better. It is surprising how tough a turkey can be and watching them fly away with your arrow can ruin your hunt. That's why even for turkey we recommend a heavy arrow - but with a big wide broadhead that will do a lot of damage on its way through and put your turkey down for good. Read more...
