While I was skinning my buck today the kids kept asking me what this bump was about 10 inches fron the front leg and 5 inches from the top of the spine. You could feel a protrusion on the hide but no visable hole. Well when I got to it I found about 5 inches of a carbon arrow and I pulled it out but no broadhead, There was no hole in the hide so it must have been from last year When I got to the opposite side backstap I found the broadhead just past the spine. Yep it was a mechanical broadhead and it never opened. Don't know the brand but I am now a firm believer of fixed blades. Why leave it to chance, this deer had its right main beam broke (2 pts)and the left had 5 pts and field dressed at 205#. I am sure it was a nice buck then and I know what it feels like to lose a deer so I am taking off the mechanical broadheads I have and they will be for groundhogs.
