Default 20 Trad Kill shots

With all the posts recently of Compound bow kill shot compilations.... I figured we would all like to see one of Trad kill shots.

20 of my kill shots all taken with:
58" Palmer "Trad Slam" Recurve Bow
50 pounds @ 27"
Easton Axis Traditionals 400 spine (29.5" with 75gr inserts)
Palmer Extreme Cut Broadheads (160 grains)

enjoy

Confused about the shot at 2:45.

Arrow hits appears to pass thru and lay on ground and it runs off with what appears to be an arrow in it.

Optical illusion or 2 shooters or arrow wrap ???

The best one was the squirm on top of the feeder surrounded by metal! I would have lost an arrow if I was shooting my longbow. Very impressive!

I missed a previous shot opportunity 20 minutes prior at the same pack of Javelina. The arrow buried in a root. When I shoot the second time the Javelina to the left of the one I kill breaks the arrow that was stuck in the root as it runs off.

Thanks for all the kind words guys, GOOD LUCK THIS SEASON AND SAFE TRAVELS TO ALL!

I have some pretty lofty goals of taking 3 whitetail Bucks at three different places and whatever other exotic makes the fatal mistake of walking in front of me will be a bonus.

"THERE WILL BE BLOOD"

Let the games begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've got two pigs on video but both compound kills. I will have my camera this weekend but not every set up is conducive to using it.

If I can video my shots everyone can, it just takes a little practice. I probably have another 20+ compound kills on mini-dv tape. These were all filmed with a $150 camera. I do it so I know For sure where my arrow hits. Tracking is tough enough but it is a little easier when you know the exact spot you hit.
