i've shot many deer w/rage bh's. almost all have ran between 80-200yds, but had gaping wounds. the many animals i shoot w/muzzy fall w/in sight, but muzzy's don't fly true for me, while Rage mirror the flight of my field tips. sunday the 7th i shot a 5 1/2 yr old nine pointer w/6 kickers! 28 yards, center of body above the front legs. Looked like a great shot, it jumped, ran out to 50 yards and started looking around. i could see the blood, though minimal, and expected him to fall over. well, after 2 minutes the wagged his tail, looked left, right, left, and walked away. I snuck out an hour later and returned 9am the following day. found my 3 blade rage, arrow full of blood, 2 blades bent up, just a few feet from where i shot him. minute amounts of blood to the tree he stood at for 2 minutes. i have bled more from shaving with an old razor than from what was puddled where he stood for 2 minutes. i looked for him everyday for 4 days. no buzzards/crows/coyotes. well, i checked some other game cameras 3/4mi away, and he showed up on the 12th!! have 5 pictures of the exit side, center of the body, in the 'V', just an inch or two behind the shoulder. instead of a "Y" exit, there in a 'V', which means one blade did not open at all, the other two might not have opened until they hit the opposite side rib cage. i feel sick!! i know i'll go back to muzzy/fixed blade bh's, but don't like the deviation from fieldpoint zero. Wow, what an emotional roller coaster... if i get this guy i'll post all the pics. can't believe he's alive, he has lost ALOT of weight in those 5 days.
