I got mine.  I have been off doing other things for a few days and didn't see it right away in the pile. 

It's funny, but years ago I started a collection of various bits and pieces from magazines and books.  The collection was partly whole cut articles and partly charts I'd made based on articles.  I lost it in the divorce over a decade ago.  However, by then I'd remembered most of the info I needed. 

Back when I started that collection, I was just getting into the sport.  I'd never seen frothy blood from a lung shot.  I'd never trailed a deer trying to run on three legs.  It was actually several years of hunting before I got one.  However, that little collection of charts and descriptions was drilled into my head. I'd made a point of going through it before every season. 

So here it was back after all those years, neatly re-done in PDF and in full color. What's more, there were several great articles on deer anatomy added to it.  How did D&DH get a hold of that binder from my ex-wife?  It's all there and then some.

Thanks D&DH.

I wish the vital shot deer 360 videos would be slightly different.  Firstly, they are somewhat small on my screen.  I do have my display set to a fairly high resolution.  Secondly, it would have been great if it could be more interactive.  It would be nice to be any distance and any angle away from the deer and then mark a spot on the deer where your bullet or arrow would hit, then be able to exploded the deer or see it by layer exactly what damage was done by your shot.

I understand that the way the 360 shot is now (quick time movie) that wouldn't be possible.  Just a suggestion for next time.

Frosty, try maximizing your screen, you can also do full screen if you wish by selecting it.

ORIGINAL: Patriot

I have my copy boys (and girls)!  Will need to spend some time looking through it.

I popped it in for a few minutes and had some trouble getting some of the video segments to come up.  I'll try again soon and provide more detailed feedback.

 
I spent some time with this last night.  Had to download an updated version of Adobe and Quicktime, but finally got it all going.  Then my Quicktime malfunctioned somehow.
 
The articles are great, but I've seen them all before in prior issues of D&DH.  I was kind of expecting some new information.  I'm not slamming anyone here, but just my honest opinion.  D&DH continues to be the only mag I subscribe to.  Keep up the great work!!
 
I was a little confused by the calculations of how much edible meat to expect from a deer.  Can someone give me a simple formula based 1) on live weight and 2) on dressed out weight?  I saw the chart and everything, and for some reason, couldn't get my mind around it. 
 
I think this is a great disc....full of super information.

In 4 days it will be 1 month since I ordered it and I still have'nt received it. I called last week Thurs. 9/3/09 and the nice lady I talked to blamed it on snail mail. I'm sorry, but it should not take this long. A month? I will wait til the mail comes tomorrow and if it does'nt show up I will call again.
