Years ago I had a whopper get my wind at about 30 yds. Must not have got a good wiff cuz he just froze. The bow I was shooting was only about 200 fps, heavy 2219's with bear razorheads. That deer was facing east when I shot and the arrow passed over his hips and he had turned completely around heading west.
Now days, i'd have just waited him out. If I didn't get a shot, well he won this round, Mebey next time.
In 40+ years of bowhunting that was the only real non typical I've ever had a shot at. Not just a rack goofed up by an injury, or a small drop tine, nope, big, gnarly, points doing up, down, sideways, and lots of them.
2 weeks of rifle season is ruining the flintlock season
