    Wanted to start a thread where people could show a picture of the blood trail left and the broadhead used to cut it.

    I am wondering what you think it would show or prove? I mean you can two identical heads and vary the shot placement by 4 inches and the blood trials will be polar opposite.

    I think a pattern would show itself over time with enough entries.

    Just something to post. Sorry wasn’t trying to start a scientific study. Obviously it all depends on what you hit...

    I suppose your the type of guy that has to always be proving something. With all the arteries and differing shot angles and all the variables that take place during a shot on a wild animal it should be obvious that you couldnt pattern any real results, I just thought it would be a fun thread.

    I know it wasn't a pretty shot but she was at like 12 yards and she had me pegged and ducked my string. I was using a 100gr rage. And it was actually a Chinese knockoff rage that a guy at work gave me to shoot a doe with just to see how they work. Cut the spine clean in half and through 1 lung. 20191009_172106.jpg 20191009_173459.jpg 20191009_173455.jpg 20191009_194937.jpg

    I used to support using a mechanical but using a knock off to shoot a doe, because if you fail no big loss right? Not preaching and you did recover the deer but that shot was a disaster. When a deer has you pegged and she is that close not much good will come out of that shot, sometimes you have to let them pass.

    First pic is where she ended up dying but second pic is where she exploded after the shot. She took 2 hops after she was hit arched her back and blood exploded everywhere. Never saw anything like it before!!! Total carnage!!! Must have hit the sweet spot. Muzzy trocar HB

    Yes...I clipped her shoulder on the entry so the arrow never made it completely out. I think the arrow movement while running then kicking on the ground, took that broadhead and tore up her insides.

    This was a Cape Buffalo with a Bishop Scientific Method. Biggest blood trail I’ve ever seen. The PH with me has taken over 250 Buffalo and never seen such a blood trail either—including with rifles. There were puddles and streams of blood for the whole 50 yds he ran before collapsing. Amazing what a single bevel head can do. Shot placement trumps everything else when it comes to blood trails.
