A couple of years ago, I shot a nice six pointer at 25 yards that was slowly walking along, and lost him because I hit him too far back. Sick as I was about it, I learned some important lessons as a relatively new bowhunter. One thing I realized was that even when they're walking at a slow pace a short distance away from you, that arrow is going to hit at least a few inches back from where you were aiming when you release the arrow. I realized an arrow is not a bullet, and you must make some sort of sound to stop that animal, or wait until they stop on their own. It got me thinking, you rarely hear of someone accidentally shooting too far forward. That's natural, of course, because everyone is aiming at the area behind the front leg, and that deer isn't going to walk, run or jump backward, so most mi****s are going to be toward the rear. Taking this into account, and not wanting to make that mistake twice, last year I stopped a decent buck, again at 25 yards, and aimed right at the top center of the deer's front shoulder, just to make sure I avoided the guts. Well, as luck would have it, I hit right where I was aiming, and with a 60 pound bow and 100 grain G5 striker, that broadhead blew right through both shoulders. Granted, the blades were roughed up, but intact, but they did their job, and I heard that deer crash in less than ten seconds. He made it no further than 80 yards. The blood trail wasn't the greatest, but his lungs were filled up with blood. I have to tell you, knowing I'm shooting a broadhead that will do that, I think I'm going to keep aiming a couple inches forward of the proverbial "pocket" that everyone aims at. I figure that even if I do miss rearward, the "mi****" will result in a perfect shot anyway. I guess you wouldn't want to do this if you're shooting a mechanical head, but with a reputable fixed blade, is my thinking flawed logic? It sure seemed to work last time.
