MD Lease- I have been using the Rage broadheads for a couple of years and I have different outcomes after shooting a deer. The first deer I shot was at 15 yards with the triple blade Rage hit a branch and sliced across the deers stomach, it cut so well that the deer spilled it's guts and it traveled a short distance and collapsed. I was able to recover the deer in a short time. The second time I shot a deer, I hit it in the shoulder blade at 35 yards. It was near dusk and the deer jumped the string and I found the arrow laying on the ground where the deer was. There was hardly any penitration into the deer and barely a blood trail. JIMO, from my experiance the questions you brought up are both true, and talking to other bow hunters I know they said that with the Rage, it might be better to aim/shoot a bit further back in the rib cage than try to place it behind the shoulder. Placing the shot further back probably do more damage and leave a better blood trail to follow therefor not wounding the deer.
