Finally got some fresh venison! Check out the performance of the new NAP BloodRunner
on a big Wisconsin doe. This is a 2-blade head that starts at 1-1/8 inches in a “fixed”
position, then expands to a 2-1/16-inch cutting diameter on impact. The trail was
short and very easy to follow. What impressed me the most is this head was razor sharp
right out of the package.
The only thing to keep in mind when shooting an expandable of any type is to be aware
of your draw weight. I had tuned my bow down to 64# this summer, and — although I
got a pass-through — the arrow stayed in the deer for about 30 yards after it took
off. Hence, there was little blood at the hit site. After that, however, the trail
was one of the most impressive I’ve ever seen.
