venison & arrow recovery

Recommended Posts

BBlizzard18

I acquired some venison Friday evening in the form of a 126lb doe.  I have a ladder stand behind the house, but deer seem to be staying clear of that entering the field.  So, I dusted off the summit climber and was able to pull off an ambush. 20 yard broadside shot, she ran maybe 60 yards. I could not find my arrow, but the blood trail and tracks were obvious. I brought the pup for a walk this morning to grab my stand and he started flipping something up in the air...my arrow, good boy.

I always feel guilty about tossing the hide. I’ve kept a couple from larger deer, but there is only so many deer hides you can hang on a wall.  I tried to find a place to donate, but no luck without driving a half day.

I use lighted knocks on my hunting arrows it makes the arrow recovery quicker  in low light conditions. An extra cost but I think it's worth it. Monster doe by the way.

I use to have some, and have shot deer with them.  I agree, it makes arrow recovery a lot easier.  Arrows are expensive, I don’t like losing them.

Wish I had a lighted nock on my bolt last night. Would have saved me a bunch of time. Didn’t find it till this morning.

Did the tree get in the way? I’ve had an arrow redirected a couple times from limbs.  Frustrating.

How did the broad head perform? Much of a sap trail?

I like pass through shots, but that looks like a good kill shot.
