You could always give the arrow a sniff test when in doubt

I'd say that he passed it up. Probably low.

Blood doesn't know what material the shaft is made of....its NOT the carbon shaft, period. Look elsewhere for you issue.

A shot through the brisket low or very high on the back will do this. Had it happen. Deer is just fine then.

True. This does work for abdominal hits.

Another sign of a hit would be found by crawling around the shot site looking for hair. If you hit a deer with a sharp broadhead there will be hair.

Not on a fatal shoot, shot an elk though a non lethal spot on the neck and there was just one little speck of meat at the front end of the feather and I shot a coyote center mass and that arrow was moist with fur on the broadhead but basically no blood. Everything that hit fatal had a good bit of blood, even the one rabbit I used a broadhead on instead of a blunt and passed through it was covered in blood. He either missed or made a meat hit in my opinion

Various bows, but if you see me shooting, it's probably a Toelke in my hand!

Like Michael said... I've seen a pretty clean arrow on a gut shot. Smell it. The nose doesn't lie.

Obviously, it's the BOW!!! Compounds will do these things...
They shoot SO fast, that the arrow does not have enough time, to do it's job!!! Tell your friend, to sell his bow IMEDIATELY, and buy a traditional bow.

Yes I still agree and any shot that is a pass-through will leave some residue of some kind even a brisket hit.... plus a brisket hit leaves white fur all over the ground at impact....there's no way he shouldn't have been able to find that much white hair on the ground.

Ahhhhh.


So blazing fast the arrows cauterize the wound channel even as they cut it.

Devil's tools.
