Don't matter that the deer was alert. He hit him where he was supposed to. His arrow isn't heavy either. 470 Grains My arrow is right around 500 and I'm thinking of going a little bit heavier myself. That flimsy mechanical is what saved that deer's life.I see the broadhead in the video. I also remember reading that he keeps two broadheads on hand, shoots 80lbs, and shoots a heavy arrow.
I doubt a rear-deploying broadhead cost him a buck. It was a poor angle on a very alert deer. I put more stock in that than on whatever piece of steel was on the end of the arrow.
But hey...#hEAvyArrOws! Nobody shooting them will have a sad story to tell this year on the contest page.
