What Happens When You Shoot a Circular Saw with a Compound Bow?

Shoot A Circular Saw

If you’ve ever wondered what happens when you shoot a circular saw with a compound bow, you’ve come to the right place. 

Incidentally, Tim Kjellesvik (also known as The Thinking Woodsman), was wondering the exact same thing. So, he decided to shoot a circular saw as part of his “Will It Kill It” segment, where he shoots random things (like this fire extinguisher) with his bow to see what happens.

To make things even more interesting, he made sure the saw was spinning at full speed when he shot it with his DirtNap Gear DRT broadhead.

Watch the video to see how what happened to the circular saw:

I’m really not sure what I was expecting, but I was still impressed with the results. Punching through a spinning metal plate like that is no easy feat!

That is the same arrow-and-broadhead combination Tim used when he took his massive 19-point Missouri whitetail in the Ozarks earlier this year, so it’s clearly a pretty awesome broadhead for deer as well as circular saws.

Only one question remains: what will Tim shoot next?
