Are Ramcat brand broadheads legal in Idaho?


Ramcat broadhead have a more than 90 degree angle to the back of the broadhead, but the manufacture told me that because the will pivot forward if the arrow come back out the entry hole they are then less than 90 degree angle and are legal.
Here is a link to manufacture web site


To Whom It May Concern:


I have copied and pasted a section from 76 of the Idaho Big Game Seasons & Rules 2012 that explains what  arechery equipment is unlawful to use.  There are two aspects of the RAMCAT that make it an unlawful device.  Expandable broadhead and the ferrule angle is greater than 90 degrees.
