Why do you need that?
Well, I am a bow technitian by trade, so analyzing what went wrong, and helping hunters prevent episodes such as this in the future is sort of what I do everyday. What I don't understand is how your arrow could be covered in blood, and the deer did not leave any sort of blood trail. I have seen deer shot with buckshot do this, but buckshot punches small holes that are easily plugged, broadheads don't really work that way. Sometimes if you hit a deer in the paunch with an arrow, you'll have intentinal coils cover up the entrance and exit holes, which effectively stops most of the bleeding (or at least stops blood from leaving the body, which is what a blood trail is). But, if you hit the deer too far back, your arrow likely wouldn't be covered in blood, it would be covered in gut and smell like... gut. I was just trying to figure out where you may have hit that doe. The equipment question is just part of the overall equation. In essence, I was wondering if the problem was the user, or the bow. I know that sounds a bit coarse, and I appologise, but I don't know of a better way of putting it. Sometimes when you come up short of something, I've found it helps to have someone else look at what happened and give a little feedback... isn't that all that message forums are about anyway?

I get what you mean....about the smell...the arrow didn't smell actually.The Broadhead had blood and Hair on it and you could see the arrow at 20yds from the blind(After I staked it in the Ground.

Well Guys..I'm filming a guy after school...I'll get to hunt either Thursday or This Weekend!

Well I did NOT see a deer while I was bow hunting, but it was only because I did NOT hunt. I did the videoing for my buddy. We saw lots of deer and I did get video of him punching a Muzzy through at 100lb boar! I had a great time!

I'm going to my lease this weekend and I'm on vacation all next week so I'll be up there by my lonesome. I'll be able to put in some serious time in the woods.

Well guys..my buddy called me up and said he could go hunting..so we went out.It was too late to get in a stand so we hunted off the Deck of his Cabin.Its about 10-15 feet up.We sat up there for 45mins.We heard something on the Backside of the cabin..so we walked back there and 2 does ran by...well another one got into his shooting lane and he stopped her......Well she was about 35-40yds out.SWAP.....there she goes...We stoped her at 60yds.He turned and said "I missed" then he showed me his hand and he was shakin so bad It looked like he seen a Ghoust.We went back to the other side of the Cabin and seen 4 more does.Well they never came in.We headed out to get his arrow..Clean miss.So we looked over the film.He missed her by inches when she jumped.

Go Get'em Guys!!

Went out tonight. Too warm yet. 75 deg. today. Had a doe at 15 yds. but got busted.[:@] I couldn't get a clean shot with all the brush. Just one more step.[]I think the smell of the charcoal in the Tinks bag I keep my stuff in spooked her. That odor is strong so I washed all my gear and put it in a different storage bag now. It was wierd the way she acted. She wasn't spooky or on alert. She just stopped, looked at me, and stared for about a min. doing that head swaying thing. She then just turned and walked away. I've never been busted like that before, but then again I've not used one of these storage bags. I think that if I can smell the charcoal smell the deer can really pick up on it. It may not trigger a flight responce but it can make them a little weary. We'll have to see next time. I watched a good show, Deer & Deer Hunting the other night and they were saying the rutshould be a little early this year due to the moon phase at the end of this month. They might start chasing a little earlier.
Good luck guys & gals.
