After opening day and losing a 7 point which I thaught was my fault and bad shot. Well that was not the problem. I shot a doe friday evening at 20 yrds and she ran off with the arrow sticking out. This was at 4:30. Well at 5:00 I heard something coming from behind me and it was a 6 piont, 10 point, 2 8 points and a 4 point. Before long they where all under my tree eatng acorns. I could here them breating and crunching on the acorns. Wathed them for awhile and then 4 does joined them. All deer where with in 30 yrds of me. I am CRAPPING on myself at this point. Then the biggest 8 point starts acting funny and then I looked up and saw why. It was a huge 9 point 18-20 in spread comming in. I said to myself that this was a shooter and if I was able to stand up, grab the bow, and draw that was his A##. Well the unbelievable happen.I was able to do all that with 9 pairs of eyes looking around. The shot was at 15 yrds and I was about 25-30 foot up.Look beautiful Until he ran off into this little tree and there my arrow fell out!!! WHAT THE F@#$!!! Watch him run off and stop after 50yrds,look around and then trot off wagging his tail. I am still sick!! NO BLOOD from either DEER. Don't under stand it!!! All I can say is to STAY AWAY FROM CRIMSON TALONS!!!! THEY F!@#ING SUCK. It was a hunt of My lifetime and they FAILED to do the job. Going to Cabelas tomorrow and buy some new broadheads. P>S> I do have video and pics on the cellular phone for all u none believers!!!!

Are those things fixed blades? Kinda hard to get a good shot on a deer that is only 15 yards away while you are 30 feet up. Why are you hunting so high up. When I bow hunt I try to only be 15 feet are so up. Lot better angle.

Try the rage broadheads they do the job. If you want to stay with a fixed blade, you can't beat the 100 grain G5 Montec 3 blade- it's solid and easy to re-sharpen. Hope your luck changes.

Thats bad luck right there. Maybe you need to hit the gym and boost your draw weight up a little. I do agree with papa a little. 30 ft. up at 15 yards is a very small kill zone. But I know you have done it before, don't give up. Trust me, I know how you feel. Been there a couple years ago. Lost 3 in one year with the last one being a wall hanger.

I was hunting in Miss. with my brother-in-law. I like to get high because it was windy and they can't smell you that well,I also practice that high and close shot so I was confident in it. But I was useing my new sentlock suit. It realy works. I have been looking at lots of broadheads.Just need to make up my mind. Papa they are fixed blades but the blades are curved. I think that they must lose power are something when they hit and have to screw in???? Thanks.
