Has this question ever been asked on HuntingPA? It might help newbies and vets understand how far the deer are actually running for the PA archery hunter.
The answer would be illuminating since PA has so many archery deer hunters.
last one i trailed went close to a mile with a high double lung, quartering away shot. we had to pull the broadhead out of the opposite shoulder with pliers. i wouldn't have beleived it if i hadn't seen it.
last one i shot went 75 yds on a very poor shot. down within sight. guess that makes it a good shot?
shot 2 doe this year... first one slight quartering towards shot, hit tight against shouler to compensate for angle, she ran about 40 yards, stopped, looked around and rolled over... 2nd doe perfect broadside, 20 yards, heart/lung shot. ran approx 60-70 yards stopped and fell right over... If you double lung a deer, it'll go down within 100 yards. Imagine not being able to breath while running flat out for 100 yards... ya can't do it..
