January 20 last season I stuck a buck and could never find him. I felt the shot was a little forward and high and I know I didn’t get good penetration because it looked like most of the arrow was sticking out when he ran off. To make a long story short, I tracked him 800-1000 yds that day and searched the area for several days following only to find my arrow about 800 yds from where I shot him. Two blades were broke off and not much blood on the arrow.

Well…Just pulled the camera from that area that hasn’t been checked since last season and that buck obviously survived. Pretty surprised and happy. I think I hit his shoulder blade.

Given the area of the wound on this deer, do y’all think it was probably a shoulder blade hit? It was a 30ish yd quartering slightly away shot.

Sounds like you hit that one spot on the shoulder even the “Ranch Fairy” arrows won’t penetrate.

Same thing happened to me on a doe 2 years ago...now I have pictures of a doe that look like her shoulder blade is sticking straight up. Her nickname is sharkfin. Shot her with a muzzy 3 blade 100grain. I'm debating on just letting her live...she still comes around my feeder.

I can't believe that RamCat broadhead didn't blow straight through.

I couldn’t believe it either. I went to get some new broadheads Monday and almost didn’t buy the Ramcats. I’ve had great success with them, other than this time, so I’m giving them another try.

The result would have been the same no matter what broadhead it was.

High shoulder and probably just glanced off the shoulder blade since it was quartering away.

It stuck in him and he carried it roughly 800 yds. Had good blood in the shot area but the blood trail got spotty as it went on. Just a drop here and there every 20-25ft.
