    so Friday night the planets moons and stars all aligned for me. It's not that big, maybe 100lbs, not a trophy to many, but a trophy to me. The rage broadhead did the trick, I hit him in the femoral artery, there was a blood trail even a blind man could follow. It was like someone splattered paint all over the woods.

    lol funny story.. I was on a doe only hunt last year to help manage someones hunting land. Noticed this doe running all around my stand. After about an hour and a half of watching I took a 60 yard shot with my rifle (300 mag) and it ran to my stand then died. Being the only one of the group that had a kill for the trip, I climb down to marvel at my trophy...as Im checking out the entry and exit holes my new cannon had made, I thought "thats odd...this doe has balls.." turns out it was about a year old spike..ooops. still tasted great though.

    to be honest with you, where I aimed and where I hit were two different things:eek: I knew I hit "it" because at the time, the light was low and I couldn't see exactly what I was shooting. The deer just stood there and ate, could have easily looked up at me and ran off.....like I said, I got lucky, because the shot wasn't that good, but hit in the right spot. I found the arrow right away, total passthru covered in blood. The blood trail was very easy to follow, which was good. In all honesty, I didn't wait the alloted half an hour, I got down, went to the truck, got my buddy, and it might have taken 15 minutes total to track, not my IMO.
