looked like a good shot i guess you never knowI don't post here much but I read a lot and thought some of you might like this video. I tried to embed the video, but could not get it to work.
I shot this buck last Monday evening, the shot was around 10-12 yards and I was approximately 35 feet above the deer (yep, too steep of an angle). The shot is only that steep in one place and if I would have waited a few more yards, the angle would have been much better.
At the shot, the deer ran about 40-50 yards and stopped, I watched (waiting on him to fall) as he stood still for a couple of minutes, he then proceded to walk up a steep hill and out of sight. I could my arrow laying on the ground and not "stuck" in the ground, I climbed down and the arrow had meat on the broadhead and the fletching and fat smeared on the shaft, no blood and a little hair.
I climbed back up and ended up seeing the buck right before dark and he appeared fine and it looks like he is fine.
Anyway, you can clearly see the exit wound and that the deer appears OK a week later.
I would have thought this would have taken aout his offside lung, but I'm not sure. I know some people believe in a "non vital zone above the lungs and below the spine" and some don't. Either way, I wanted to show how tough deer are and show an interesting video.
