The opener came and went. Just wondering if anyone went out, and if so where and how you did?

I think that is a good idea. I did read a survey that estimated only about 50% of the deer that are arrowed are actually found. That might mean a poor shot-or non fatal hit (maybe a leg was hit) or possibly a fatal shot but weather conditions (heavy rain) or poor tracking sklls on the part of the hunter never allowed the animal to be found. Other reasons might be something like a gut shot that the intestines plugged enty and exit holes after a while and the deer continued a good distance before dieing leaving no blood trail (in my mind that is poor tracking skill as well though). That generally means that a great many (maybe as high as 50%) of the deer that are arrowed are left wounded by a non lethal shot..or left to rot in the woods because of poor arrow placement, poor tracking skills, or weather issues removing all tracking signs.

What do you guys think about that as bow hunters? What do you think could, or should, be done to change those percentages. Remeber guys...I was a bow hunter for many years and still target and stump shoot a great deal.

I would much rather you didn't arrow the deer. But..if you do then you at least have the responsibility to make a clean and quick kill.

So...what could or should be done in your mind to change those percentages?

Along with better shot selection how about using a mechanical broadhead like a Rocket Aerohead Broadhead....

I know most of the old school guys don't like them but a good friend of mine invented the Rocket Aerohead....

PB: What are the advantages of a mechanical braodhead over the norm? Just wondering cuz I'm new to the sport and as I sit now, I don't like them as much as I do the fixed broadheads. Granted I haven't shot either yet, since as previously stated I'm brand new. Thanks!
