Let me know if y'all are tired of seeing my videos and I'll stop posting here. Another Cull, and decided to leave in a snort wheeze my shooter did just before I shot him.

Looked like a perfect heart shot. Congratulations on a super nice buck.

Please keep posting your videos. They are very educational. So important to understand how those deer move before the arrow reaches them. Interesting on this one cause he didn’t drop much at all. I know they dont always, but could it be cause his head was turned the other way and his ears cupped away?


At some point in life its time to quit chasing the pot of gold and just enjoy the rainbow. FR

I believe that is part of the reason (head turned and listening in the other direction). I also believe that the more mature deer, have slower reaction times and are not as worried about getting bullied. Also, I believe that when a deer has their head down vs up when the shot is taken, the head down deer will drop faster and further. Likely because they can use the lifting of the head simultaneous with the bending of the front legs to accelerate their drop, vs only gravity with the raised. I'll post a doe shot next Monday that I took this weekend and her head was down when I shot, and she dropped a good five inches before the arrow got to her at 20 yards.

I understand and agree with the head up vs down theory but hadn’t thought about the head turn. Of course you may have to wait a long time to get the head turn, so there’s that….

Yeah, so let's see. As a bow hunter, I need to wait until the deer is at 20 yds, quartering away, leg forward, head up and turned away, no other deer around, and in camera frame. Will take patience! smile

Not to me. 'Course, I don't know Jack Squat about bow hunting. Woj is my new bow hunting hero. 'Way better than another guy on here that keeps missing. grin bolt

I don’t bow hunt so I really never thought about it, but after a closer look, the deer on the left had his head down and forced his body much lower than the deer you shot. Good point and nice video!

I liked the far right buck. Is he still standing there? Not much reaction at all to all the commotion.


If you find yourself feeling useless, remember it took 20 years, trillions of dollars, and four presidents to replace the Taliban with the Taliban.

Sometimes the Universe puts you in the same situation again to see if you’re still a dumbass.

Yep, that happens quite often. One (usually buck) sees all the other deer haul [censored] and just stands there looking as if "what the hell y'all running from?". And in this particular video, that one buck still standing there is a buck we call "Vegas". A 3.5 year old 11 point with split brow tines. He has a pass for at least another three years.

I’ll say again how much I like and appreciate your videos. Video work is great. Your shot selection, shot placement, actual shooting is all top notch.
