    Entry lower then Exit

    The past two deer I have shot I have noticed that the exit hole is higher than the entry hole. I am clearly getting some deflection but not entirely sure why. I am still getting pass throughs but not getting the vitals I would like due to the change in direction of the arrow once it hits the deer. I decided to change my broadhead to see if it makes a difference. Looking to see who else this has happened to and what changes were made to correct it.

    That's really strange, I assume you're hunting from a ground blind? Were the deer uphill from your position? How much higher was the exit than the entrance?

    No I forgot to mention that I am in a tree stand. The difference is about a inch to two inches.

    I have seen mechanicals do that.

    I've seen/experienced significant lateral deflections many times; but only slight vertical ones. Approximately what angle degree was the shot? You can figure the angle by using the number of feet up the tree you were vs. how far the animal was at POI.

    Deer drop on the shot loading their legs to flee, could your arrow be hitting the deer as they're rising up to run. As the broadhead hits a rising chest cavity the angle of the arrow looks to now be deflecting upward through the cavity. I've seen this angle on some of my shots, generally on deer jumping the string at 30 or more yards and this is my theory.

    Thanks for all the possible answers. I am at a bit of a loss on what is really happening. The first time the deer was at 18 yards the second time at 27 yards, both times from a tree stand at around 15 feet up. I was shooting fixed bladed Muzzy's. Both times got good placement mid body right behind the shoulder standing broadside.

    I assume you have shot your broadhead tipped arrows through paper to be sure they are flying true? I'd switch to mechanicals, those fixed blade broadheads are junk and cannot be trusted.

    Switch to muzzy trocars I've have great success with mine if your bow has a low tear through paper that could be why your exit is higher than entry wound key to shooting fixed blade broadheads is to paper tune your bow get it close as possible to a perfect hole with no of tears and almost all fixed blades should fly tru another good fixed blade is slick trick they are tough as nails

    This is just a "theory" ... but I would go with the "jumping the string" theory. I have now recorded on video multiple kills of deer being shot on high alert. In every instance that they "jump the string", they always drop the off side shoulder faster and further than the side facing the hunter. They try to do the drop/spin to go away from the sound. This leads to the deer's body not being square or level to the ground. The result I am finding is an arrow entrance that is often equal to or even lower than the exit. I would have never believed it if I had not now shot this type of footage on video multiple times.

    That being said ... an arrow can deflect too.
