While attending the 2017 SCI convention this year Bob Summers of Deltana Outfitters stopped by the GrizzlyStik booth to share a fantastic moose hunting story that made him an instant believer in GrizzlyStik tapered arrows and our razor sharp GrizzlyStik cut-on-contact broadheads.
This story is a perfect example of the increased shot opportunities you'll get when you set yourself up for success by shooting the right combination of heavier, high FOC (forward of center)arrows and the right single bevel broadheads. Even on big North Amercian animals like the Yukon moose.
"I was guiding a bowhunter for moose in Alaska. He was shooting GrizzlyStik arrows and broadheads.
As I recall his arrow set up was pretty heavy. When we got to within about 35 yards - the moose was quartering to.
My bowhunter was behind me and I was saying to him, 'Don't shoot, not yet, it's not a good...' As I was saying that - I heard his bow go off!
He had taken the shot.
My head spun around to check his bow. Yes - he had taken the shot. I snapped my head back around to the moose and I said, 'Shoot again! Hurry! I think you missed him.'
As the hunter spoke I turned back toward him and he said, 'I don't think I missed.'
When I turned back to check on the moose - he had already tipped over! In a matter of seconds that big bull moose was down. When we got up to it I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
The arrow went through the point of the shoulder, broke four ribs, and came out the hind quarter. We looked for the arrow but we could't find it.
I've never seen an arrow that could produce so much energy - to go the whole length of a moose - I've seen bullets not do that.
Because of that moose hunt, now when anybody comes brown bear hunting with a bow they have to use GrizzlyStik arrows and broadheads or I will not take them.
They're the most fantastic performance arrows I have ever seen in 26 years of guiding." Bob Summers, Deltana Outfitters
