Just curious to see how it all shakes out.
pass through, fixed blade (Muzzy MX-4)
Boy, more people shoot Fixed so I wonder how this will turn out. This is another tread to start some bashing.
Yeah, I probably opened yet another can of worms here. :doh:
What about pass through mechanical (spitfire) dead deer?
The one I lost this year I shot in the backstraps. I had an entry and exit hole but the arrow was still in the deer. I put that down for no pass through. To me a pass through is arrow on the ground. Is that everyone's opinion?
Lost Deer This Season
That's my opinion as well.
Epek all the way.
heck i have not lost a deer this year, but all 3 i have shot with my bow was with slick tricks and i got 2 pass throughs and one non pass thru and still he didnt run 20 yards
Guessin your thinkin of that kansas deer?
An entry hole in and an exit hole out equals 2 holes whether the arrow stuck in the ground or not. If there are two holes, the killing end of the arrow passed through the animal... not much damage done by the shaft or fletching that I know of.
One could argue that a arrow left in the deer could prevent some bleeding by applying continuous pressure to the wound.
Of course you can kill a deer without pass-thru. When talking from a treestand the exit being low on the body helps for a good blood trail. High holes usually equals poor blood trail. That is the one problem I have with ground blinds. Even with pass-thru the holes are higher on the body. It dont mean you wont find the deer but it sometimes makes it a little more difficult.
Do you think the arrow might hold the wound open to some extent?
I lost my first deer ever this season mid October. Complete pass through double lung shot with rage 2 blade that left a HUGE blood trail. Waited a little over an hour before getting down from climber so my buddy's hunt wouldn't be disturbed. We found the blood trail of the big fat old doe that I shot. Followed trail about 200 yards and found where she expired but she was gone. Just leaves all pushed away and huge blood puddle soaked in the dirt. No deer, 8 yards away was a neighbors ground blind on the common property. I'm pretty sure he took the deer but that was never confirmed.
