Tough to say as each animal and hit is different. Most of mine drop within 80 yards. I had one go literally 10 ft and drop dead. Only one has gone beyond 80 yards. It was a nice 4x4 whitetail. Big deer, probably 200lbs. Shot straight down on him from a tree stand. I hit him where his rib meets the spine, smack in the middle of the rib' which is thick bone where it joins the rip. Didn't "spine him". The broadhead broke the rib, but only traveled about 4 inches into one lung. Since the entry hole was on top of the animal, very little blood came out, which made tracking near impossible after a point. I found him by running a grid pattern of the area. He died about 300 yards away.Bow n00b question:
With a G5 Montec... if I make a decent shot and let's say hit at least one lung... but don't hit heart... what's the typical amount of running away yardage the deer might do on average, in your experience?
I think the penetration would have been the same. The arrow needed to break the rib to continue. After that is super soft tissue. It wasn't going through the rib, as in putting a hole in it. Given both have solid tips, they're pretty equal in how they would break bone. Ensuring you have a heavy enough arrow has a greater impact on penetration.bughalli do you think the slick tricks would have had better penetration after breaking that rib than the Rage did? I haven't taken enough game with broadheads to be any kind of an expert but I do shoot the Magnus Stinger. They are very accurate for me and get decent reviews.
I shoot the original Rage 3 blade broadhead but was thinking of the 2 blade for my son. I know a slick trick will have better penetration for the low poundage bow but I figured the 2" rage will have a more forgiving shot placement for a 12 year old.I didn't take pics of the wounds and generally hide them for the grip'n grin pics. But we often joke about the holes these leave as the deer looking like they got hit with an ax.
