The wife took a 20 yard shot at a doe while we were in the ground blind tonight. I watched it hit the deer right on the shoulder and the deer dropped right there. After about 30 seconds to a minute, the deer stumbled to it's feet and went 15 yards then back down. Then off in the woods. Found the arrow at impact site, broadhead(G5 Montac) broke off inside. I suspect one lung hit. How long to wait? It's been over two hours already since the hit.
Oh we had good blood. There was a puddle the size of a dinner plate where it was laying in the field after the shot. Going back to look now, its been 3 hours since the shot. Got a couple of good lights. Let you know if I find her.
Found it stiff as a board. The arrow actually passed through both front shoulders. I have no idea where the broadhead is? It's not on the arrow.
As a bonus tonight the game warden gave my wife a ticket for an un-tagged deer. She started to have a panic attack in the dark and in the middle of a thicket that I had to crawl through. My main concern was getting her back to the truck and they were waiting when we got back. I told them i still had to tag it and what happened with her and they didn't want to hear it at all.
Well that was a quick hunting career for my wife, only took 10 years to get her involved in hunting and the GC one night to end it!
i agree they sure do know how to make people stop hunting. Tell her not to get discouraged theres butt heads everywhere. ive had a few run ins that were pretty funny. and both were just checks. Tell her Great Job and GOOD SHOT!!
