Default Which is better?

Pass-through completely or to have the arrow stuck in as the deer runs. The only deer I ever shot w/archery equipment ran away w/ my arrow, he ran 80-90 yds and fell over stone dead. The problem I had w/ that shot was it was a little far back. I could here him grunt as he smashed through the heavy bush that I hunt, and I thought I heard him crash. I waited 30min beforeclimbing down my stand and walking to where he was hit. My heart sunk...... no blood, I left him alone fo about 2.5hrrs and went in.This deer went at least 50yds w/outa single drop of blood spilling..... then it was a constant stream that any fool could follow. I was elated my first deer w/ a bow. But what can I learn from this experience?I am assuming that when you get a pass through the blood starts almost immeddiatly or does it? SOme of my hunting friends say that its better to have the deer run w/your arrow sothat more damage is done as they run through the brush as my deer did, but its almost a guarantee that your shaft isn't going to be used again? ANy thoughts to help the new guy?

I like the double lung pass through shot , I seem to get a great blood trail with that shot and it gets better the farther the animal travels!(not that they go very far!)

I always want a pass thru....2 holes. For me it's always better.

If the arrow is placed in the boiler room, I don't think it's going to make much difference. You'll find your deer and he won't be that far away.

The through an through is better. Far better blood trail, nd yes it's almost instant and usually a blind man could follow it. Iv'e had both and definatley want the pass through..

short blood trail means dinner stars sooner
