These guys are the real deal, cream of the crop, and absolute killers with a bow. They may not be the flashy guys you recognize on the big screen and they definitely are not the guys seeking out the infamous title of "Pro Staff". These guys are on Team Annihilator because we noticed them being authentically awesome. They are the guys that are putting in the reps shooting, have bowhunting on the brain 24/7 365, and ultimately are those that have the tags filled to show it. These guys are an extension of our team. They each have personally witnessed and can speak to what the Annihilator truly accomplishes once shot out of a bow.

Favorite animal to hunt: Deer and Turkey
Why Annihilators: I was initially intrigued by the design and appreciated the 3 blades with the ability to sharpen on a flat stone. I picked up a set and was immediately impressed with the tuneability of these heads. I was able to shoot further then I have with any other fixed blade head I had shot in the past (100 yards).
I have now taken over a dozen animals with the 100gr Annihilator, spanning from large pigs and deer down to turkey. The way the head is designed has saved me on several marginal shots. The internal damage created from this head is unreal. One time the Annihilator caused enough damage on a liver shot I was easily able to slip in a second arrow to finish him off. The blood trails have been great, even when needing to follow animals through brush. With a properly placed arrow, I watch the animals drop in sight.

Favorite animal to hunt: The majestic whitetail
Why Annihilator: I choose to shoot the Annihilator Broadhead because there is not a tougher, meaner, more destructive head on the planet and I want to shoot the best. I'm an ethical bowhunter, and I want clean, quick, ethical kills....and I want them to go down in sight. This broadhead gives me that. I've tested more than my share of fixed blade broadheads, and the Annihilator has consistently risen to the top and has become and will continue to be my go-to broadhead.

Favorite animal to hunt: Axis Deer
Why Annihilators: I shoot Annihilator Broadheads because in my opinion they are the toughest head available. I have harvested over thirty (30) animals with them. They always fly good and are extremely lethal. I am confident that with the Annihilator at the end of my arrows they will hit their mark and make for a quick ethical harvest as long as I do my part as an archer.

Favorite animal to hunt: Elk
Why Annihilators: Whether I’m chasing big or small game, the Annihilator is my broadhead of choice for several reasons: solid one piece design, extremely durable, excellent penetration, can be resharpened to the original edge and is one of the truest flying broadheads I’ve ever shot.
I’ve competed with the 100 grain Annihilator this year and took 1st place at the California State Broadhead Championship with it!
Hometown: North Texas
Favorite animal to hunt: Elk
Why Annihilators: Did not grow up hunting but grew up learning the land and the ways of it from my father down on the old ranch our family used in Mason, Texas. Stalking, tracking, observing, moving on the wind, moving against the wind, and thermals were some of the few things we went over. I was the youngest out of 7 total, though unexpectedly, was really the only one who took to it the way I did. I started hunting once I was able to leave home to work a family Ranch/Outfitter on 30k acres near Devils Tower in Wyoming. Rodeo, ranching, hunting, and sports occupied my life until 2006 when I entered the military for the better half of a decade. Deploying to combat in 2 different theaters during my time in USMIL and then more once out with the private sector. Hunting became my oasis in what was now my life. Killed my first elk after my 4 deployments in the Military and have been hooked ever since.
Growing up the way I did, with the teaching from my father, we don't take more than we need and we respect it and the land to the fullest. So it's an easy choice for me on broadheads across the board. For over the past two years I've been using Annihilator Broadheads because I've seen the top tier perform to my own standards of terminal ballistics. Black Bear, Elk, Mule Deer, Feral Hog, Turkey, and Mountain Lion are a few of the one shot one kills I've had with these broadheads and some with the same broadhead. For those reasons, I go with an Annihilator. Respect the animal to the highest, treat the land well, make a precise and ethical kill.

Favorite animal to hunt: Whitetail Deer
Why Annihilators: In September of 2019 I picked up my 1st set and I couldn’t believe how good they flew with hardly any tuning or sight adjustment. That same year I dropped two deer back home and that’s when I saw the absolute knock down power of the Annihilators, harvesting my biggest deer with a bow to date.
I was truly amazed with the internal damage they caused so much I gave my Dad and brothers some to try as well. The first time my Dad tried one he put it on his number 1 arrow before getting in the stand and dropped a big Missouri 12pt that didn’t run 20 yards. Needless to say, my whole family is shooting nothing but Annihilators and have had the best success with them for the last two years, with 9 deer harvested. I am honored and proud to be apart of this team and family.

Favorite animal to hunt: AZ Elk
Why Annihilators: September 2019 I called in two bulls on the second morning of my hunt. First bull came in at 42 yards broadside, but a steep down hill shot. I had full confidence the Annihilator Broadhead would perform perfectly, and it did. The arrow impacted a touch high and passed completely through the elk, exiting at the back of the ribs on the far side. The bull walked 25 yards and bedded down. Ten minutes later, it was dead. The Annihilator did the trick with an exceptional amount of trauma around the wound. It looked more like something I'd expect from a rifle than an arrow. That damage along with the great penetration, is what I look for in a broadhead. Thank you for a great product!

Favorite animal to hunt: Mule Deer
Why Annihilators: I have tested and shot a ton of broadheads throughout the years and none of them have delivered like the Annihilator. The accuracy and results are unmatched. I have shot several mule deer with the Annihilator and they produce massive wound channels that are absolutely devastating. These heads are simply the best there is. Period.

Favorite animal to hunt: Roosevelt Elk
Why Annihilators: The Annihilator is a solid one-piece head with no interchangeable parts that break. I have personally taken 3 mature elk with these heads and witnessed my family and friends take down 4 other bulls with Annihilators. My first bull I shot with Annihilators I got a complete pass-through a big bodied Roosevelt Elk at 104 yards! I definitely recommend the Annihilator to anyone.

Favorite animal to hunt: Whitetail Deer
Why Annihilators: I'm 40 years old and I grew up fishing and hunting since the beginning. I started out gun hunting then switched to the bow 20 years ago. My memories are always with me gun hunting with my family but love the challenge and high that bowhunting big midwestern whitetails gives me! I have used a lot of equipment over the years and probably one of biggest questions people ask is what is the best broadhead! This can be answered in so many ways! I myself have used a lot of different heads out there and have had success! From my personal experience the Annihilator is superior to others out there for several reasons! These include flying straight right out of the package like a field point, accurate at even longer distances, impact creates a wound channel that stays open allowing the animal to expire faster and within sight! You can also reuse these heads kill after kill year after year, resharpen on a stone and literally beat the hell out of them! It's unreal how these heads do everything you want them to and that's performance in every aspect!!

Favorite animal to hunt: Mule Deer Freak
Why Annihilators: I’ve been shooting Annihilator Broadheads since they hit the shelves in May of 2019. After witnessing test after test annihilating the competition, I decided to see for myself. I train to minimize any error on my end of the shot, but build my arrows for the unknown. With Annihilator leading the way down range I can be sure that the wound channel will be devastating! I strive to give the game I pursue the quickest passing possible, and Annihilator is the broadhead I trust to do just that!

Why Annihilators: I've been blessed to have harvested a lot of animals with a lot of Broadheads, but I have never experienced anything like the Annihilator Broadhead. It is a vicious killer and the only one I will use from here on out.

Favorite animal to hunt: White tail deer
Why Annihilators: I started using Annihilator broadheads after I shot them through a car door at seven springs total archery challenge. I was initially drawn in by the solid head, and the ability to resharpen on a flat stone. After shooting my biggest buck to date with an original 100 grain, I will never use another broadhead again. Dropped in sight with a large wound channel like I’ve never seen before! There’s no better feeling as an ethical hunter than to see an instant kill. It’s remarkable how lethal the Annihilator is for its size, which also allows it to fly like my field point. So glad I came across this incredibly well designed broadhead!

Favorite animal to hunt: Whitetail
Why Annihilators: Whenever I saw the Annihilators for the first time, I was intrigued by the unique shape and design of the head, so I bought some to try them out. Those three heads lasted me throughout the season and I was able to stack up 5 or 6 Texas hogs as well as 6 deer, all with the same 3 heads. I was amazed at how accurate they were, but my favorite part about them was that all the animals I shot with them never made it out of sight. I also witnessed these heads break through deer and hog shoulders with ease, never failing to leave a carpet of blood to follow. Annihilator Broadheads are just flat-out deadly and I save a bunch of arrows because the heads consistently punch through both sides.
