I was out this morning hunting with my bow, and i have never killed a deer with my bow. An 8 pt came out around 9 and i poped him with what i thought was a cleen shot. I was using the new blood runner broad heads with my mathews legacy . As soon as i hit him he ran off out of site. I was for sure that he was dead out in the field and it wouldnt be long. I waited 30 min amd then began to trail him. There were loads of blood and i thought he would be dead around every corner but nothing. About a 150 yds down in a dried out creek bottom i jumped his ass..he took off and i cant find any more blood. I know i broke the number one rule of hunting, dont push the deer, but how do i find him?
i dont agree with "mightyfofaad" at all!
the point a dont agree with is...
""#2 where I surmised that a deer that was able to get up & run more than 30 minutes after being shot ... was not hit with a killing shot""
maybe you meant that it isnt a "vital" hit instead of "fatal". i say that because we all know how long a paunch shot deer can live before dying (well over 30 monutes), and though it will die, it isnt hit in the vitally.
in addition, i've used bloodrunners. they're decent heads. theyre fixed blades heads that expand by piston force. its a great concept. i just quit using them because i couldnt get them to fly well.
so, where's our update? was the deer recovered?
