EASTON BOWHUNTING TV
« on: March 01, 2009, 09:43:10 AM »
Well here I sit in my lazyboy, last 2 days it has been raining (3.5"). I turn on the telly and ole Fred Eichler is hunting Montana with Jackie Bushman.  He has his recurve and is seeing alot of deer, He finally gets a shot at a decent buck at 30 yards and the buck ducks the arrow, next day Fred gets a shot at another buck close and he ducks.  I guess if you have never had a deer duck a arrow this show definitely showed you how they do it in slow motion. 
I think this also shows how important a quiet bow is, both of the deer he shot at I thought seemed very relaxed and they ducked them arrows like it wasnt nothing.
Anyway pretty cool show.

If we all had our hunts filmed we could tell if this is happening to our faster bows.I wonder how many spine shots are deer jumping the string.

bmcs,

most of my deer with a bow have been under 15 yards and just about all of them dropped to the sound of my bow as sound travels at over 700 mph depending on air density, no bow is that fast and even in a split second they react.  i would say over 75% of all deer missed or hit are hit higher than where the bowhunter was aiming.  once i saw this on video and heard the bow fire myself and see the deer react before the arrow was even half way there i have always tried to aim at the bottom third of the chest to counter this effect.  most are then center punched and not hit high.  put your videos in slow motion and see it yourself.  i agree with you, either spined or missed the majority of the time when aiming at the middle or high in the chest depending on the angle and distance away.

Thats why Fred should use a Bowtech 101st Airborne. I am confident that at 30 yards, I could aim at his spine, its all over. But thats just me. %^$^

I also hold slightly low because of deer jumping the string.I would much rather have a clean miss if I happen to shoot under a deer.Than hit that area on a deer just above it's lungs and below it's spine.
I have heard so many stories of deer being hit in this area that are never found.

I also hold low in the chest cavity aiming for the top of the heart area. I am also meticulous about noice reduction on my hunting bows. %^$^
