Default RE: lost 2 in 2 days

ORIGINAL: fullcircle

Was the first shot a pass thru?the second must not have been ,if feathers were dry.Take your bow in and get it completely tuned.You don't seem to be getting the most penetration with it.what poundage are you shooting.what's the setup?you shuld have stayed with the buck over as many properties as needed.IMO Good Luck
The first shot was not a pass through, (spike) slight quartering away, seemed it hit the opposite shoulder, it buried to the fletching, I could see it clearly as he ran off so I know where I hit.
second shot was a pass through, seemed a bit low, nfeathers were not soaked, but way to much blood on the ground, I waited an hour on that shot, but the more I think about, I think I pushed him, because of that huge spot of blood 30-40 yds away, it seemed way to fresh when I got to it, because an hour later when we walked passed it again it had soaked into the ground and looked a lot older.
I think I should have waited 4 hours and I bet he would have been right there.
Bow is a Bear TRX shooting 278 fps. @70 lbs.
