Default I Made a Poor Shot on an MMR Spike...


It wasn't ideal shot placement, but I got lucky and was able to find the deer. I hesitated to share this video at first, but the reality is sometimes things don't go exactly as planned.

That should have caught the descending aorta right at the iliac. Very fast kill if hit there.

That Traverse would have worked through that "Indian" issue and curved it around to the double lung via pure mojo!...


Seriously though glad you found it..Congrats!...Love the spin slomo on the arrow. Must have hit the artery just under the spine, huh? I'll take luck all day long.

Cant make a perfect shot every time, but a shot that leads to a dead animal is still a "good" shot. Great video as always, thanks for sharing.

Top notch all the way around! Your video skills are proven over and over and this is just another example. However the REAL work comes in on the production, and you're gettin' pretty good at that too sir! My congratulations to you on the deer and the video production! That stuff in "National Geographic" quality stuff right there!

As far as the shot, it wasn't really "that far back"... Looked like the quartering was pretty severe, especially at arrow impact. Looks like you should have centerpunch of the liver and the angle of the exit tragectory was down. Notice the arra hit the ground very close to the deer because as the arra was going thru him, he was wheeling around which allowed to arra to exit quite far forward, and up a bit... might have even got a bit of the offside lung.


How far did he go, and did he die where he went down the first time? Sure would like to see a video of the dissection to see what the arra hit and the broadhead cut.

LOL! Not usually. I had shot a hog earlier (note the arrow behind the spike ) and honestly wasn't planning to shoot the spike. Peer pressure from my group text buddies got the best of me!

Dead deer found = good shot.
But showing not just the shot but how to handle it is good to do.

When your nocking arrow your one vane looks folded over in the video at the 1:12 mark. This could've caused arrow to fly erratically. Even at 1:27 during draw back you should be able to see third vane but it's not visible.

Don't make excuses for him!


Sometimes you shoot'em in the middle.....happens. I hit myself in the leg with the lower limb and shot the hog behind the hog I was aiming at right in the ***. Must have hit the femeral (sp?) artery, because he leaked a steady stripe of blood about 65 yards a fell over dead.

Michael, you can also see in the video when you are at full draw, the vane appears to maybe even have fallen off. It is not visible in the video of you at full draw...


Also a petty good testament to the tune of your bow... the flight via the slo-mo is pretty dang good for a whopsided arra!!

That's a velcro cable wrap (like you'd use to wrap computer/phone cord) that I use to attach the release to my bow when it's not in use.

LOL! As I said, I gave into peer pressure from my buddies. No reason to save this one for the future There were two more spikes that came into that same setup that afternoon.

I have a hog video from this trip that is in the queue for next week.

Thank you! Im really pleased with the quality of this camera, and I love the slow mo capabilities. It shoots 240@1080 and 120@4k! Obviously I love the 240fps for the money shots!

Thank you. The arrow appeared to be just a little sideways (vanes to the left) when it entered. There were only two vanes on the arrow when I found it, so I'm guessing it was loose when I nocked it and I didn't notice.

Michael, do you record the whole video sequence of the deer at the 240fps speed or switch it at some point before the shot. Or maybe use 2 cameras?? That high speed stuff eats up some card space!!

I typically record 24@4K (sometimes 1080) and capture as much footage as I can and then switch to 240fps when I'm ready to take the shot. The S3 has a custom mode dial on the top that makes switching easy. M1 is set to 4k/24 and the "S&Q" setting next to it is 240fps. Shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings are stored for each, as well.

OK, that makes sense and what I thought you probably did... I have a small high speed camera (240 at 720p) and a 128 gb card fills up pretty quick when just videoing with it set that fast... I've never used it to video any hunts, but mostly use it to record air gun shots through optics mounted on the guns... it's great for slo-mo shots for that... Almost no recoil on the air guns so I am able to get the pellet flight pretty clearly to the target, whether a dot on a piece of paper or a sparrow/starling/ or other vermin... Think i'll get me a gimble mount and try it this next season...
