Never did figure that out!  The arrow shaft broke off squarely behind the broadhead.  I searched the area the next day with a borrowed metal detector and never did recover the broadhead. 

Guns have triggers. Bicycles have wheels. Trees and bows have wooden limbs.

For all those that tell you that a deer in rut is "gamey"...this buck's neck was bigger than my chest!  Ate ever' scrap of him.  For those that say hanging a deer won't "age" them because that only works with beef, ever' bite was fork tender or it was my own fault for talking on the phone while making dinner! 

He was sure pretty...both in the field and on the plate. 

Just realized that if I had been able to take the shot right away, I would have been in the "Pappy zone".  Ever see anyone harvest more deer at spitting distance than him?  Venison Whisperer!
