    Put me down for a high shot with the bow. Good news is the deer is still alive and well and feeding in the same area.

    right in the shoulder blade...i think it was caused by a light arrow and broadhead combo ( 4'' Penetration):banghead: speed aint all that matters!!

    I haven't lost one but I voted for the little duckhunter. He shot an 8 point in the leg with the 7mm-08. The deer is alive and visiting the feeder regularly unfortunately with a broke front leg.

    I have been very fortunate in my deer hunting career to have never lost an animal. I figure it will happen some day and Ill be sick.

    Haven't lost one this year. Of course I haven't shot at one either. :biggrin:

    But in my 30+ years of Bowhunting, Gun Hunting, and ML hunting for deer I have only lost 3. One with a gun, and two with a bow. My ML record is perfect! :up:

    If you hunt long enough, and shoot enough deer, you're gonna loose one sooner or later. I've lost more than I care to admit, but it ain't from lack of effort. Mostly just lack of patience. I'm working on that though. Killed over a hunerd deer in my lifetime, lost one with muzzleloader, two with a gun (both buckshot) and 9 with a bow.
