Thanks man! I really appreciate that from a TBH brother. IT certainly wasn't easy and I definitely had the deck stacked in my favor with sun position, wind and stupid deer lol

I'm not sure I could have pulled it off with that many pairs of eyes 30 minutes earlier or later.

Heavy arrows work!

560gr total weight Day Six 300 spine with 50gr aluminum insert/outsert with 125gr Magnus stinger after blowing straight through my deer and doin a swan dive into an underground rock.

The arrow seems fine but I think I'll retire this one.

If you set the knock right you could shoot over hills with that thing? Nice work on the shot. I'm considering switching to a single bevel (that looks like a single bevel).

Congrats! I may try a DIY hunt next year. Looks like hard work, but fun and (hopefully) satisfying!

Lol! Good idea! Perfect for use with a spotter drone to lob over hills

This is a Magnus Stinger double bevel. I've heard really good results from Cutthroat single bevels, I plan on trying them once this season is over.

Shot was about two inches back farther than I would have preferred but he was quartering to a slight bit and uphill above me so it must have taken out a good bit of vitals and exited high. Blood trail was pretty weak but he only ran about 50 yards total in a circle and layed down maybe 50 feet from where I shot him
