Gregg Family Talks Toxic from Flying Arrow Archery
by Capt. Ted Lund
Licensed To Kill TV’s Dean, Floyd and Chase Gregg have only been using Flying Arrow Archery’s Toxic Broadheads for one deer season, but what the Indiana-based hunting family has experienced in that short time has mightily impressed them.
The father-and-sons-trio document their hunting adventures — as well as those of 25 prostaff members — on Licensed to Kill TV, appearing on Dish Network, the Pursuit Channel and 24HuntingTV.com. So far the whole crew has been impressed with FAA’s Toxic Broadheads’ ability to take down animals quickly, cleanly and ethically — even in the event of a bad shot.
“These things are incredible,” says Floyd Gregg. “They’re fixed blade broadheads that you can still shoot like a field point. As ethical hunters, we owe it to the animal to bring them down as quickly as possible. Flying Arrow’s Toxic Broadhead does just that.”
Toxic features several unique characteristics that are taking the archery world by storm, says Gregg. First, they’re field-point acurate, thanks to a compact, fixed-blade design with no set screws or moving parts. Secondly, Toxic incorporates Flying Arrow’s proprietary “Meat Worm” technology. With nearly 5 inches of cutting surface on impact, Toxic is changing blood trails for ever — and turning bad shots into kill shots.
“Most broadheads slice, and the animal will bleed, but it could fill in or clot over leading to a lost animal,” says Gregg. “But the Toxics, they actually cut a hole out of the animal that can’t close or fill in. The animal is going to bleed, leaving a clear trail and really increasing your recovery of animals.”
That ability to help archers capitalize on even bad shots is what stands out to Gregg the most.
“On one of our hunts this year, my brother dropped his bow on the way into the stand,” says Gregg. “We checked it out but everything looked fine.”
His brother Chase, though, said he knew something was wrong as soon as loosed the shaft.
“We checked when we got back and the site was off by about a 1/16th of an inch,” says Gregg. “We didn’t notice it,
but it didn’t matter. The Toxic brought the buck down, even with poor placement. These things are awesome. We just don’t lose any animals to bad shots since we started using them.”
This season the family used Toxic on all their archery hunts, bagging a number of Indiana does and big bucks. But they’re looking forward to getting to try out the Toxic range on some other animals this year.
“We’ve got some hunts for bear, mule deer and elk scheduled and we’re really looking forward to seeing how Toxic performs with them,” says Gregg. “But what we’re really excited about is getting out in the next couple of weeks with some of the new Tom Bomb arrowheads for spring gobblers.
