3 Types of Bowhunting Arrows & Their Advantages, Belleville, New Jersey

Whether you’re a serious game hunter or simply want to get some target practice, each bowhunting arrow serves a specific purpose. As an archery enthusiast, choosing the right arrows for your needs will help you develop your own shooting style and fine-tune your technique. Bullet Hole Annex has a large inventory of archery equipment at their Belleville, NJ, store and wants to help you get familiar with the variety of arrow points available.

Simply refer to the following guide to the strengths of three of the most popular arrow points for bowhunting:

  • bowhuntingBullet Points: A top choice for both game hunting as well as target archery, this arrow has a dome-shaped head that resembles the bullets from a firearm. These aerodynamic arrow points are especially effective for hunting large game, such as deer, elk, mountain goats, and even bears.
  • Blunt Points: Made of plastic, rubber, or steel, blunt arrow points are ideal for hunting small animals since they kill by blunt force rather than penetration. These flat-headed arrow points have a wide surface for striking, exceeding the shaft in diameter — a quality that makes them ideal for hunting squirrels, rabbits, and birds.   
  • Bowfishing Points: Most often made out of steel, bowfishing points have sharp-tipped heads that are particularly useful for catching fish, such as gar, carp, and paddlefish. The arrows have retractable barbs that can easily penetrate the tough scales of fish. Using a clockwise motion, they are easy to remove from the fish and may even be reused.

To pick up arrows for your next bowhunting adventure, head down to Bullet Hole Annex. If you need to brush up on your skills, they also offer archery classes as well as an indoor range. Give them a call at (973) 759-8800 today to speak with a helpful customer service representative about their available gear. Visit them online to view their calendar of available courses.
