I have made a couple of those 300+ yard shots, but most of my CA deer were under 50 yards and in lots of brush. Last year I finally found a buck for my grandson that was during bow season, so it was about 30 yards(we didn't have a range finder). At that range, most deer just fall down when shot with a rifle; but not so with an arrow. We gave it time to lay down, and then tried to recover him. After an hour of searching, all we found was tons of blood but no deer. Told my grandson we had best stop looking, cause we were just muddying the trail. I got some help and it took five minutes to find the deer that was less than 200 yards from where it was shot. Nice young buck in full velvet, small antlers but a 4 x 4 --- which is not common in my neck of the woods. Grandsons reaction was very similar to the video.That's great. Gotta love the kid's excitement. On a side note, that's almost EXACTLY the kind of thick stuff that I hunt regularly. No 300 yard shots like you guys in CA have. But then, you've gotta drag it out of all that junk too. Sometimes (often times) it's too thick for a cart and all you CAN do is drag.
