That's from one hunter...technically, there was 660" between three hunters on that day!

That doe was definitely on alert, and I'm sure that played a factor in making what looked like a rushed shot. There wasn't much arrow penetration, but given the angle and leg position, I don't think she could have placed it much better. Always sucks to lose a deer. I'm glad you showed it as part of your series. It's hunting, and it ain't always pretty.

It sucks to lose a deer but that happens sometimes, my opinion is that it was not a terrible position for that shot just was not ideal. Enjoyed the video.

As always...great video Michael.

Bottom line, your analysis is spot on. We could all spend 3 pages of what if's that might all be helpful/informative, but quartering-to shots are ill advised on deer, and especially on what seems to be a low poundage set up and not one tuned for maximum penetration.

I've just started watching your video series and I am getting motivated!! Thank you sir for taking all the time to do this. It is obviously a passion for you and you're pretty good at it!

Thanks for all the feedback and comments!
