Losing streak broken
« on: November 23, 2010, 09:07:00 AM »
After many years of waiting I connected with my Black Widow on an 8 pt Friday Nov. 19th at 1630. This is only my second traditional deer.

I was using a 160 grain snuffer and carbon arrow.   :goldtooth:  
 

The next evening I shot a 9 pt but made a poor shot and didn't recover him until the next morning.   :confused:    It was one of those shots that makes you say, "what in the world happened?!?!?"
 
 

I think it was the large amount of damage that a big sharp broadhead makes that made it possible to find him at all.
