Losing Their Heads

If you're eating right now, you might want to let your food digest a bit before you check out this next link. Sent to me by OL's well-rounded fishing editor Jerry Gibbs, this video showcasing ArrowDynamic Solutions' Gobbler Guillotine is as graphic as hunting footage gets. The air-foil technology makes this arrowhead "fly like a field point and hit like a meat cleaver," so the video says.

It's no lie. As hunters, we are all used to the byproducts of death, but man, slow-motion footage of... Well, I'll let you check it out for yourself. Suffice it to say that Braveheart didn't have jack on these guys.

If you like to hunt your turkeys with a bow, this may be something you'll want to check out. But if you try one out, just a word of advice: Tote along some duct tape, you'll need it to reattach the head for photos.

Oh, and on a production note, I have to hand it to the guys at ArrowDynamic Solutions, the musical score and film editing of the video are most Oscar-worthy. The ghosted image of the hunter drawing back while still showing the strutting target before him was a nice touch.
