I knocked it out of the park this year and shot this huge 8 pointer at 7:18 am opening day with my crossbow still hunting state game lands. I shot him at 45 yards with a schwacker Broadhead. He ran about 1/4 mile but it took almost three hours to track him down the blood trail was sporadic although his lungs were jelly. His brow tines have a neat hook to them. This is the biggest buck I’ve gotten. It took 2 hours to drag him 1.5 miles. .25 miles was through a briar patch over logs and tree tops the logged it a few years ago and left the tops. I think I prefer does for meat:work ratio. He was freaking heavy.
