2.What are some tips for storing my broadheads?

There are a few things that you should keep in mind when storing your broadheads:

  • Sterilize the blades before you put them away. This will help prevent rust from developing on the blades over time. You should be able to find an appropriate sterilizer at your local pharmacy or sporting goods store. 

You can also use alcohol or nail polish remover to clean the blades, but be sure to let them dry completely before putting them away to avoid rusting during storage.

  • Use a hard plastic case that is free of dents and sharp edges for storing your broadheads. Avoid storing your broadheads in material cases, such as cloth cases. The fabric can trap moisture and cause rusting.
  • Place your broadheads in the same case with the cutting tips pointing towards the top. This will keep them from being accidentally stabbed or cut by an arrow or other object when you’re on the road.
  • Make sure that your case is not left in extreme temperatures for extended periods of time, since doing so can cause damage to the plastic casing of your broadheads and make them brittle over time
  • If you are storing your arrows or broadheads in an arrow case, be sure that there is sufficient space between each arrow to avoid damaging the broadhead blades while traveling.

3.How should I carry my broadheads when I’m traveling?

To store your broadheads for travel, check with the manufacturer to see if they have a method for storing their broadheads. Some broadhead manufacturers recommend placing a bandana over the blades to prevent the blades from getting caught in a seat belt or other objects. 

You may also consider carrying your broadheads in a zippered bag or tackle box to avoid losing them if you have to take them out of your case temporarily.

4.Who should use this information?

This information is intended for anyone who stores their bowhunting equipment in a case or bag during travels. It can be used by bow hunters, shooting enthusiasts, marksmen and anyone who carries a case with them on outings.
