Whatever came of this? I just found out 3 Rivers does not have the Hunter Head now and was ready to buy more. If this were revived I'd buy a couple a dozen for sure.

It seems to have fallen by the wayside.
If it were to come to fruition, depending on the price, I'd be willing to buy 1 or 2 dozen.

I talked to Johnathan Karch of 3Rivers Archery back then and told him we would order 10K broadheads. He said they will not make them however if someone wants to buy the machine, ferrules, and blades, they would sell it all for 12K.

The problem with going into the broadhead business is, unless you have the ability, equipment, i.e. hydraulic presses, heat treating ovens and etc. you have to farm it out to someone that can do that work. That is expensive. When the Wensels made the Wensel Woodsman, they farmed it out to Magnus, Gene told me they made $2.00 per pac of 6 and they were required to purchase all of the seconds that didn't pass inspection. I realize this is old info, but it gives you an idea of how long it will take you to pay for your investment before you start making a profit, if you can call it that.

The opportunity is only golden if one has the wherewithal; space, equipment, and capital, to dive into said venture. And, unfortunately, the Hunters Head is a niche market application that faces stiff competition on multiple fronts.

It is not new, nor “revolutionary”, technology and I doubt it would make an impact with the “in crowd” compound shooters/hunters. And that, my friends, is where the lions share of the archery market lives.

So, return on investment would be nil.

Tim,

You must have missed it... these broadheads are no longer being made and there is no way to get anymore produced unless someone takes the initiative, buying the dies and machinery, and starts producing and marketing them to the masses.

Andrew

PS. Just trying to clear up confusion.

They (3rivers) still have a Steelforce head on sale, buy three ( pks of three each) at sale price and get a fourth pk free. Turns out about $45 for the dozen.

Kinda similar style broadhead.

Unfortunately all your going to get for your 12K are dies to stamp the blade and ferrule, and jigs and fixtures to assemble them, along with the rights to the head. If you don't already have presses to stamp the parts and heat treating equipment that's another investment, or you farm that out, huge another cost.

Bob, Andrews not interested, I was just pulling his leg.

He’s to busy to hunt, much less moonlight.

Tim,
I knew you were pulling my leg.
I am a busy man but I try to make as much time for hunting as possible. Some months are more conducive to getting time off than others. And then there’s the ever present “Honey-do’s” but I can sneak away every now and again. I have a block of 4 days off coming up this weekend and then another 3 day block a bit later in December. I’d gladly come and try my luck at skewering another pig on your ranch.

Andrew
