    it seems 1000K times more with archery. New bows but folks dont practice and use crappy or dull broadheads and have no outdoorsman skillz. i agree archery loses way too many.

    I can't answer that. I just observed over the years that there are a ton of threads in the bowhunting forum about lost deer.

    There is a reason the Indians lost the war, woodsmanship, courage, heart, discipline etc......can not overcome superior weapons.......

    It is really part of bow hunting, no matter how much you practice and how good your equipment is you are probably going to lose a deer in your lifetime. It sucks when it happens but it does happen. If it has not happened to you yet, then God bless you, but it probably will. Even with a clean pass through right in the boiler room you could possibly lose a deer.

    I had a buck run 3/4 mile and I shot him right through the heart. I found him because the blood trail was 3 feet wide, but he could have plugged up and run into some thickets and I could have easily lost him. Where I hunt has some extremely thick undergrowth that is all but impossible to go through without a Machette ( Yes, I carry one on my wheeler).

    Hi my name is "Mike" and I have lost deer. It happens! All we can do is try to do our best to hunt ethically.

    amazing to me everyone wants to argue with me about using a setup designed for worst case hit .... yet everyone argues they always make great shots and therefore only need setups that works in the best case hits :banghead:

    light arrows and mechanical broadheads are the #1 reasons people lose animals -truth

    it's not the equipment its the hunter. I have lost deer......it was my fault because of bad, risky shots.

    Someone should start a poll on the deer hunting forum to see who has lost deer this year and which weapon was used. I'd be interested to see the results. Just a thought...

    I would be willing to bet there is A LOT more deer wounded by the orange army.

    I would bet that as well and remember not all deer that are shot will die. They're pretty tough animals.

    I like to refer to them as "Wal-mart hunters". They run by Wally World on opening day of season. They buy their license, orange vest, some bullets, a deer block, a 2 liter of Mountain Dew, some summer sausage and a carton of Pall Malls. They sight in their gun in the headlights of the truck and throw the deer block out in front of em,(dont even bother to take the plastic wrapper off). Then blaze away at the first deer that walks up.

    I may be exaggerating just a bit, but you get my drift. :thumb:
