This is what you should not do.

Not exactly my definition of lucky. The deer does seem healthy though. Deer are amazing animals.

I also would like to see this deer put out of misery. Also, think about all the tree huggers who may drive by and take pictures of her and use them against our hunting rights. This video should be taken off line also. People like P.E.T.A would love to use it in their propaganda against hunting. He should call a game warden NOW . Or he should take it out himself. SSS ....

What a shame ...

Although the wound looks healthy and the deer appears to be eating.

Depending on the shot distance, the deer could have reacted to the bow noise and caused the bad hit.

If the broadhead was a Muzzy instead of a mechanical, it would have been a pass thru ...

Another thing to think about. What happens to this poor creature when it gets warm out and the ''black flies'' start hatching? What about ''blow flies''? It will be then that this unlucky doe will really start suffering. Those little pest will eat right through her muzzle. Another statistic for ''black tongue''.

Not sure where you found those pics but Last year a deer in North western Ct was tranqulized by the DEP and the arrow was removed . It was the same situation .

I did see that same story. To bad they could not do the same thing in this situation.
