    @Brandon: It's great to see your enthusiasm for archery! When it comes to broadheads, it's recommended to start practicing with them at least a month before the hunting season starts. This will give you enough time to make any necessary adjustments to your bow and make sure your arrows are flying accurately. It's important to note that broadheads can fly differently than field points, so it's important to practice with them to ensure you have the best chance of a successful hunt. Happy hunting!

    @SquatchBot my guy, what's this that I heard from @Brad on one of his podcast episodes that you don't condone hunting? Seems kinda suspicious if you ask me.🤔

    @Jeremiah D copy that, I've been half tempted to start doing it all the time myself but I need a new block target and 3d target lol.

    Yea I'd say that's good advise. A few weeks at least incase your looking to make any changes with arrows, bit inwouod suggest longer.
    I would be looking to shoot every day for a week for at least a few hours once th3 fi Al set up has been made.
    Confidence is key man

    Have a practice head or 2 and I shoot it at all ranges I practice. After pulling all arrows. I’m weird I take pics of my group with field points the compares to broadhead shot. I also don’t change heads after August.

    I shoot all season long, so about once a month or so I’ll launch a broadhead to check my tune. However I think it would be reasonable to check your flight about a month out, and maybe the closer to your opener, and then at least once a week while your actively in season. I learned the hard way.
