Yeah, Dr. Grant Woods is an awesome resource. If you havenít subscribed to his YouTube channel I highly recommend it.

Yep. Exactly why I don't shoot at deer over 20 yds. I have in the past, mostly with bad results. Too big of a gamble on what the deer is going to do before contact.

Interesting stuff especially after listening to a podcast with Lee and Tiffany talking about taking 50+yard shots. I will stick with my 20 yard shots.

Now I know I never made a bad shot. Just the deer dropping.
Good info

At the longer ranges a deer will cease to react to the sound of the bow because the sound level has decreased below their sound threat threshold. I do some photography out of my pop up and have noticed different deer react at different ranges to the shutter. Generally, I'm good at 20-25 yards, some deer won't react at 15 while others will spook as far out as 30.

The big problem with long range shots is flight time. A deer could easily take a step or two forward during a 1 second flight time and that double lung shot turns into a gut shot.

I stumbled across this video the other night. Good stuff, I've watched several of his videos, but still haven't subscribed.

Thanks for posting, makes me feel better about some of my shots I thought were bad.
I will certainly keep this in mind going forward.
Great Video and research!

Test would've been more accurate with a hooter shooter.

Hunter might've been off on his shot, showing diff impact.

But..... I do agree with the results that deer can drop farther at 40 than 20 and that a faster (and accurate) bow "helps" to cover that gap.

I use a rangefinder and aim at the top of the heart at all distances. If they don't drop, I'm still good. I rarely shoot past 40.

I agree a hooter shooter would have been better, but pretty good info on there non the less! I did notice all the extreme droppers were doe. And never thought about the head down vs head up advantage... or disadvantage

I’ve noticed traveling deer are not a 10th as jumpy as feeding deer (plot, feeder, oak tree) they are always on guard. But a deer walking a ridge or scent checking sometimes never knew they were hit and the deer in group just stand around clueless

Awesome video. Thanks for posting

My 18 yard shot on a doe from last weekend (sorry quality isn't the best but I videoed my computer screen... I do have better quality but I forgot the card at the lease). But either way, you get the idea. She barely moved until the arrow was through her and she was on pretty high alert when I shot (@33 sec in the video). Watch it in slow motion or you miss the minor flinch right at arrow impact...

The "head up" versus "Head down" theory is very intriguing and I would like more information on this.
