interesting. I could turn this into a bash thread in 2 seconds but AT is full of those.

Hard to say. He appears healthy. Not a fight scar, to early. Hard to tell. Maybe broadhead that didnt penetrate? The wound looks really fresh.

Well its hard to say but it kinda gives you a target on his body when his big azz walks out 20 yards from you!

A insert name of hated broadhead hit there and didn't work.

Not bashing but after saving it & blowing it up it looks like a hit from a Rage that didn't penetrate. It's not the classic Y wound from another 3 blade head & the size of the wound fits a Rage head. Well after I posted I seen the other pic of the exit wound but it does still look like a Rage hit.

if it was a rage it was by a youth bow or a very low KE bow to not get into atleast one lung.

The Mathews Kid

there is actually two spots..the big one and a smaller one seperated by skin right below it...so a rage shot I believe is out of the question...but bash away I guess..ha ha

Look's like a rage to me. had the same thing happen 2 year's ago got picure's of the buck 2 month's later look's just like that in the same spot.and before you strart on bow poundage it was a 30yd.shot bow was 70pd. pull:wink:

September 7th, 2009, 05:46 PM
thats not a broadhead wound, ANY TYPE OF BROADHEAD!! it coulda been in the shape of elvis and somebody woulda said "yep, classic Rage wound, i've seen it a million times over the last 30 years" i think thats just somet type of injury that deer get sometimes from living in the wild. maybe tried to jump a fence with metal posts...came down on the top of it or something...but for that to have been a broadhead, it would have basically just had to bounce off the deer. that didn't happen.

did it ever occure to some of you that this wound might have nothing to do with a hunter ?????? and then you can say what did it ,then name a broadhead!
you are better than i thought or d.a.h.
i'll say a crome strip from a '72 buick.....green one ....with black vinyl top..
and it had goodyear tires on it.:confused:

September 7th, 2009, 05:54 PM
No, no. Someone actually threw an axe at the deer to see if it produced a Rage wound channel. :set1_rolf2:

You guys have it all wrong. There is no way that was made by a broadhead. Its clear that that deer is into S&M and is into suspension.....what the pics don't show is the matching wound on the other side. Probably found a nice barbed wire fence to satiate his sick sick pleasure.

:P

(If you couldn't tell the above was an attempt at humor.....go have a few beers and read it again)

Im with ya man, Looks like ole chuck over estimated the pentration abilty of his axe. Guess he thought with that big 2 inch head he could take that 60 yard throw.

we can only "assume" what happened. It could be a broadhead hit, but maybe, just maybe it is something else?? Barb wire fence possibly?? There are lots of possibilities.

September 7th, 2009, 06:16 PM
I do agree that it looks like it was shot with a broadhead that opened in flight and was either a very poorly tuned bow and the arrow was porposing badly or the bow was like 40#. The hide appears to have been penetrated but thats it. It's a miracle he didnt get an infection or gangrene or something.

September 7th, 2009, 06:17 PM
Check out the used bows in the area he came from probably find a cheap bow for sale and a mad hunter, even though I would say it wasnt the bows fault.

Or any other expandable produced like a vortex, but no it has to be a rage. Funny people.

Yea, it just has to a Rage right? Why do you people hate that head so bad? Good Lord, let it go. Just because you don't like the advertising for them doesn't make it a bad head. I don't understand peopple with this issue. I bet if you got them for free you would use them.

too bad we dont have a pic of the other side of him, my guess is that if that was a hit from any kind of broadhead he would be in the freezer and not on the hoof, unless indeed it was a directly vertical shot, just use it as a target, and let us know what it really was :darkbeer:

thats a wound of some hunter who took a shot at him directly below his stand and missed the mark to the left or right(depending if he was coming in or going away). Seen it before. My friend killed a buck last year with a similar wound that another of our friend made when he to the shot at the deer below him. The buck was shot 3weeks later. As for broadhead, could have been any.

sbunnylove
September 7th, 2009, 11:12 PM
no, no no people lets not look to far into this, we already know that it's a well placed "rage" shot which did what they all do "nothing". but what we need to figure out here was it a 2 or 3 blade:wink:

and it had goodyear tires on it.:confused:

The factory Good Year Polyglas tires really weren't that good for handling. Going with your thoery, the driver would have weaved just slightly so as not to lose control, thus hitting the deer as it was quartering toward the vehicle. This angle must of caused the chrome strip to pull away from the body of the vehicle and a corner cut into the deer, causing the injury. But, due the extreme angle and bumper trajectory the chrome strip deflected off a rib meaning that it didn't get a full pass through, just a hide wound because both corners of the chrome strip didn't fully bend open...and the very end is dull.

Conclusion? If the driver had been riding on a newer tire instead of the factory Polyglas that everyone thinks is so great, the chrome piece would have fully penetrated the ribcage and possibly have gotten a double-lung pass through.

I'm still going to try out the Rage heads and see what they do for me. But, you've convinced me that hitting a deer with a Buick isn't anything like throwing an axe at one. So, I'm going to go with a Dodge or other Mopar for all of my deer hitting needs from now on.

not with a rage, it cuts the first layer of flesh "DEEP" then bounces off, or just gets stuck under the fur trying to open:)

when chuck norris hunts he doesnt shoot the deer, he makes the deer shoot itself.

but anyways it "is" a rage wound. looks like a 2 blade prob 100gr---but on the plus side they make good paper weights

September 8th, 2009, 12:14 AM
Haha.. Some people are rediculous.. It does look like a rage wound, but the only problem is, if a RAGE caused a wound like that, that deer would be on somebodys wall..

Barbed wire sounded alot more on track that anything else..

All the deer ive killed hate my "paper weights", let me tell ya.. They must have just been so scared because they look knarly, that they just fell over dead, cuz surely no Rage head could kill a deer..

uh what other weight would it be? Rage only makes 100gr broadhead.

September 8th, 2009, 12:20 AM
It is quite coincidental if this was not inflicted by a hunter (or pre-season poacher). When one considers it's location.
I won't venture a guess as to what or who could have caused a wound like this but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that it was a poor hit from a low powered bow or failed expandable broadhead.

That isn't a broadhead wound. I would guess he ran into a branch or tree that didn't want to move or he got into a fight with something that didn't like him very much.

daweasel
September 8th, 2009, 12:27 PM
I would say some type of post or object from the bottom if you look at the way the wound is small hole on bottom and large tear at top. I fit where a hunter he would have to have been under the deer. Just my 2 cents:embara:

Somebody shot that deer twice with a Rage 2-blade. The first shot the blades failed to open. Fortunate for the schmuck, the deer thought it was a fly that bit him and did not go far, allowing a second shot in which the Rage 2-blade failed open and the deer decided to get out of Dodge.

Thats my story and I'm sticking to it...

Or maybe is was a magic arrow aka JFK's magic bullet????
