A spoon I pounded flat with a hammer and then cut into a point with a band saw and creating the edges with a sander and then a file and honing rod. The point is on the broken end of my arrow down by my gut pile somewhere because I forgot to grab it. I will go hunt it down and take a picture of it tomorrow.

Impressive. I love all of the homemade gear.
Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject.

Little!  Are you kidding me. . .   homemade gear, pounded spoon broadhead???   You should be on MI Outdoors and you should do some special mount of that deer- at least a Euro mount!!

I am more than impressed!!

Bears can attack people- although fewer people have been killed by bears than in all WWI and WWII combined.
