interactive animal 'xray' views
« on: December 11, 2004, 01:24:00 AM »
I think that the best thing that could happen to a bowhunter/hunter of any persuasion would be to have a web link that would allow us to view "internal" views of all the differant game animals.

the way I picture this is...having a 'search' feature for whatever animal you want, say 'black bear' or 'kudo' or whatever, then you can move the 'xrayed' animal around however you want (like a 3D drawing or something) to persieve shot angle/kill zone.

the kill zones are so differant on all the differant animals that I think it would be a nice thing to be able to access.

this thing has been brought on by watching the african game animals, that always seem to be shot "too far forward" and then always die post haste.

I would like to KNOW the anatomy of whatever I want, whenever I want.

Good point, MPS. If you shoot a blue wildebeest in the same place as a whitetail you're gonna be tracking for DAYS. I think there is a video like that in South Africa, and there used to be a set of cards that showed you where the heart and lungs of African species are located.

If there is enough interest I'll get my father to send me some, and I can pass them on to any interested Tradgangers.

yes african animals the heart lungs are way forward and also they have a lot more tenasity tio live .
African antalope you come up front leg about 4" above the body line and place arrow right there on broad side shot .
here in NA we try for behind back leg  on whitetails in the little pocket on African game as Windnot said that is a gut shot and in Africa if you  draw blood you just bought it    :D  so you need to know shot placement !!

Dano,

Wouldn't that be a canned hunt?

Haven't found them on-line, but there are books that show the position of the vitals, skeletal structure, etc.  I have "The Perfect Shot, North America" that has everything from antelope to walrus listed, and there is a version for African game too.  The one I have is written by a rifle hunter, and he mostly discusses shot placement and calibers for guns, but you can see the bones and vitals just the same to know what would be a good shot with a bow.

Calvin, I sent you an e-mail with the pics I've got.  I'm not sure they're exactly like you're talking about....the 3-d feature would be way cool.....but this is a good start.  I can't remember where I picked these up at but I can take no credit as a source for them.

Try on the NBEF site.   I know we get supplied with a lot of anotomical "layered" acetate artwork that shows bone structure, circulatory, respiratory, guts, etc. of most N. American game animals.   They may have those available on-line (especially since they are trying to get the course put on-line).   Not quite 3-d, but very useful.

Those are good, would like to see some of the same for NA game animals. If a person could see that while trying to make a shot, might make a difference. Still have to pick a spot.

So where is the scoring rings on these animals.  Of course there also should be an x-ring right???  Just joking.   Do you need one of a squirrel MPS????
