total garbage, shot at a beautiful high tined 10 point buck at about 15 yds broadside standing still, the broadhead broke off about and inch into the deer, it rolled the o-ring back onto the shaft (BTW- they were carbon express arrows) and broke the broadhead clean off, penetration sucks, I seen this buck spotting afterward and he had a noticeable limp :sad:, did not see him in rifle season so I am hoping someone shot him, I was using crimson cudas 100 grain's, i would not recommend the crimson line no matter if its the cuda or raptor to my worst enemy, I shot at a nice 8 point earlier in the season, I know I made a good hit and could not find my arrow, blood trail, nothing, another bad instance with this line of broadheads >:(. Why is it also that no pros endorse or use the crimson line, I'll tell you why, they are junk and nothing more than marketing hype, I would not trust these for the hunt you are going on.

BTW- here are some pictures for proof, you can also see the hair and some meat in the broken off portion of the arrow, that pisses me of daily looking at that >:(

Dude, that suks... >:(
If you're like me, I know that just makes you sick. I shot a doe last season in the hind leg up thru the gut. This was at about 30 yards. I don't know if she jumped the string or I had the fever (first bow deer) but nevertheless, it was a bad shot. She ran about 30 yards and  bedded down. I new it was a bad shot so I gave her about an hour. I went out to get her and that's when I kicked her up. She gave chase for a good mile before she got tired and laid down. That's when I snook broadside and stuck her good. From the time I shot her the first time to the time I drug her was about 3.5 hours. But i was determined not to leave wounded game out there.....

any gut shot deer should be given a mimiun of 8 hours if possible over night she probably would've been right there

if the gut was punched it was gut shot  smell the arrow or look for greenish or brownish matter if the arrow smells like guts don't track it for a minium of 8 hours they usually don't go over 200 yards and lay down have a better chance of recovery gut shot is gut shot
