I TOOK THAT SHOT LAST SEASON AND ONLY GOT ABOUT 5 INCHES OF PENETRATION WITH A SNUFFER.  NO EXIT, NO BLOOD TRAIL, NO DEER.  DON'T CHANCE IT!

I passed on that shot last weekend.  I decided that It was just to chancy.  Next time I might feel different but I will alsways think hard about it.

One of the things you can do in your situation is to reroute the deer  by obtructing their trails with brush and cutting them another trail that would give you a better shot angle. the deer will use the new trail if it is obvious and easy to navigate.

The trail thing works really good too. I've cut trail in places where there never had been any and the deer were using them within a week.

If it's as thick as you say, you would be better off with a ground blind. Trim no more than 2 shooting lanes, make a fake scrape where you want him to stop. He will check it out. Again, if it's that thick, blind does not need to be real elaborate. I use tent stakes to tie saplings and brush down to help conceal my spot. Good seat is important to keep still, hunt the wind.
