Discuss Bloodtrail Challenge 30
Pat I love these. I have a suggestion though. Can you "spot" me 9 points on 'em for bein' colorblind? LOL
You forgot to mention the no whining rule.
as long as we don't have to find the deer in one of the multi quadrant pictures, imo those do nothing for these challenges. good to see your in the top 500 Pat!
it wont let me play? it says im registered but when i click on the challenge it says must be registered to play. to register click here. i click there and it says ur already registered!!!!!
there is only one clue where's the rest hah
bowfisher, maybe you're color blind? Pat said that'd make it tough! ?LOL
no whining yet...just grunts
if we let him walk in question 1 does that meen we are done and therefor have a perfect score?
I answered question 1, how do you get to question 2 and so on?
Typically one clue is posted per day. If something is happening on Pat's end, the time may get extended a bit.
OMG ... means he missed and that's the end of the challenge!
Seen some double dipping already. Ruling?...Butch
bowfisher - no soup for you. Can't be the end... good blood on the arrow. hehe
impatiently waiting for clue 2
So what makes b a worse placement than a?
I think b is worse because if the deer jumps the string you get shoulder or above the spine. With "a" you still probably get top of the lungs or spine or a clean miss. Took some thinking, but I actually got it right.
Im aiming at d all day long even if it says its the worst shot option:)
I would say A is worse than B. I have seen deer get away from high one lung hits.
Jarod, D is considered the best option. They are rated worst to best.
well guys, I'll argue that D is the obvious best shot deer on high alert can do more than drop straight down left or right of C on a ducking deer is a good shot not a great shot but good, right of D is going to be a bad shot
We know ont thing its not ct no snow .STEVE
yep read the question careful i tried best to worst and when i received my big fat 0 i went and reread the question. live and learn
On question 2 understand the deer drop but with a Bowtech 350 destroyer with a crono hunting set up of 336 ft/sec, he would not move that much before he was dead! I have shot to many deer just like this and placed it in the middle and he goes 50 yds or less right where I put the pin.
No way you could convince me that B is worse than A for an AIMING POINT... Oh well, atleast I got partial credit.
I must be doing something wrong, aced the first question (as all must have)but can not get to the 2nd.
Why is it the aiming points on these challenges are at the perimeter of the best spot. The best spot is the center of the 4 spots. If this is meant to be a teaching tool, especaially for new people getting into the sport I would never tell them to shoot where any of those 4 spots are. 'B' is too close to the scapula, 'D' is too close to the leg joint, there's no room for error if you'r a little to far to the right or low. 'C' is way to low from an elevated position, and if the deer doesn't duck you are exiting out the bottom of his stomach in the white hair area. 'A' is actually allright because a high lung hit is better than 'C' any day. 'C' is actually the worst place to aim if the deer doesn't drop.
I never anticipate a deer dropping, that would be like saying you are going to lead the shot a little, in case the deer desides to take a step as you are about to release. I've only had 1 deer duck my arrow in over 25 years of bowhunting with about 50 harvests.
I've said it in other posts, what would be the 10 ring on a 3D target is not the best place to aim on an animal standing broadside, it's too low and too far forward. You need to give yourself room for error: high, low, left or right. You aim at the center of vitals. BTW, this has nothing to do with the challenge and what my score is, I know where Pat likes to aim. I'm trying to get people to re-think the proverbial heart/lung shot.
K2S, I agree totally. Aim for the center of the vitals all the time. Always results in a good blood trail to your deer.
im A dumb A**...I went best to worst. Got me Pat!!
I disagree with the order, those of us that shoot a Hoyt don't have to worry about deer jumping the string! LOL
2 for 2 you just have to answer them like your PAT .
The answer choices gave this one away--If you look, the 4 choices of worst to best started with either "a" or "b"- so, if one was obviously the worst, the other has to be next. Only one answer has both- B-A-C-D.
I wish I could hunt the deer where you are. I've killed 9 deer with a bow in the 10 years that I've been bowhunting. I have yet to shoot at one that has not dropped considerably. I have missed 2 at 20 yds broadside. I aimed right in the middle of the lungs and have 2 muddy broadheads to show for it. Even now on the deer I kill, I aim right at the bottom of the heart and have spined 2 of them, and no I'm not shooting that slow. Hunting set-up 296.
Well Dave I feel your pain failure to read instructions has always been my downfall.I read them but its like im tuning them out when I read them lol!!
Confusing a little but I think the order should be A,B,C,D.
" I'm trying to get people to re-think the proverbial heart/lung shot."
Good idea! You might want to start telling us that we live in the matrix, too. Heart lung is best and this worst to best was spot on.
I think that those shots next to the shoulder blade are way too close to it, to be the best shot. I've lost a few deer from shoulder hits and would rather hit lungs than bone.
Theres no crying in baseball! Love that saying from league of there own! I accidenylly hit the wrong button and presto my answer was submitted! Doooh : /
I guess Pat wants us to pick a gut shot spot over a high lung shot spot.... because every single buck ever shot here always drops when on alert! Sorry, I'll be shooting a touch to the right of D (thanks BB) all day long..... Pat did say no whining- this one is going to be more Crystal Ball, mind reading, than reality- maybe I'll do better than I usually do?
I was suckered on #3... I assumed that looking for the arrow meant getting out of the tree and walking around... DOH!!!!
Yeah, he got me on #3 as well...LOL..that is why I like these things! furstrating but fun!
I don't carry binocs..... "grunt"! LOL
I'm with you Willis5, I thought we were getting down.
Boo on #3 even if you can see the arrow and it looks good, technically you still are not sure of the shot and with the ground as open as it is out there, once you get down you can be seen from a long way so it is best to stay in the stand so as to not potentially spook your buck if it is bedded nearby or spook other deer that may run and kick up the buck as well!
The arrow isn't going anywhere....so it doesn't matter if you check it now, or wait 30 mins!
If you know that it is a pass thru already (in description)will looking at the arrow with binoculars tell you anything more?
I agree. I thought these we to be used to learn and improve our tracking skills. Instead they are turning into word games. Give me a break.
Looking for my arrow with binos from the tree tells me NOTHING except where it is located.
lol..... some fun eh fellas ;-0)
Talk about a sucker punch on question 3! Should have realized anything referred to as "OMG" we gonna have teenage logic behind it!
And the discussion thread kills the validity of the contest. I will start waiting until the last day and answer all the questions. Can't miss then. Everyone has provided all the answers.
Lame answer just to make people get it wrong.
"And the discussion thread kills the validity of the contest"
yes it does, thats why I always "play my hand" for the day before clicking on the discussion. If you enter these things with a competitive mindset, you will end up frustrated, angry, disappointed.
If you use them like I do, to kill time at work, they are fun. ;-)
Then please start telling us which category it is going to be in advance. LOL
Ah, suckered on 3. . . I specifically don't look in this thread 'til Ive played for the day. I have nothing to prove by winning, I have yet to kill a deer. . . :D
Good times Pat!
lol..."OMG edition" was not a clue as to category?! ;-)
Pat, you accomplished your goal - I was screaming at the PC by question 3... The answer was obvious, but not what I was thinking of. LOL
You seem like a nice guy. You do real good things for the hunting community nationally and locally in CT... and I find your blood trail challenges infuriatingly frustrating! How can you do good things for hunting, yet drive hunters to prescription medication and counseling like this :)!!!
How long to look for the arrow? The answer should be based on actually getting down and looking at the arrow. If you said it was a pass-thru already in the into, what more are the binos going to tell you?
I am a big fan of the blood trail game, and even some tricky wording... but this odd use of the word "look" is similar to Bill Clinton twisting the definition of "is".
Question #3 is the best, I read the answer and laughed my coffee up all over my key board! I got it wrong - of course right away!!! BC
I am with fuzzy, who carries binocs when you can't see 60 yards past the thick trees. As for shot placement, C has to be the worse shot placement. Unless he jumps the string then A would be worse.
Lame A$$ trick question so soon? Why not just tell everyone who answered with the standard response, "Yep, that's right. But I'm taking 6 points away because I can. Bwwwwaaaahhhahhhaaahhhaaa." (best evil laugh I could spell out)
This has more to with diction than teaching good ethical behavior. Previous versions of this game actually inspired careful thought. This question should be thrown out because it goes agianst the grain of what is ethical.
Pat: You may need to rethink what you are trying to do with this....
I am still going to waite 30 minutes just in case I have a doe tag as well. GRIN! Like someone siad earlier: There is no crying in baseball even when the umpire is blind.
Nasty question on 3..... I saw the reference to binos and should have known better with your past trickery. I almost picked right away and thought you wouldn't do it so quickly..nahhhh not Pat :) LOL
Seminole, I beg to differ, the issue is semantics, not diction.
Pat is from Ct so his diction is always bad. ;-)
right away......yeah right away. Even though I did answer correctly and would be looking from the tree. In the real world, when I KNEW that it was a hit, and by the response of the animal after the shot. I would know that It was not a gut shot from his reaction. A gut shot would have hunched up. This animal jumped, which is typical of a frontal hit. Sorry, but I would have got down from the tree after listening for a crashing deer and if no sound, I would have walked over to the shot area and looked around for the arrow. A pass through would have told me how lethal the hit was when I found the arrow.
Lesson learned: READ THE QUESTIONS CAREFULLY! I totally blew 2 and 3 because I didn't pay attention to the words!
Best of Luck, Jeff (Bowsite Sponsor)
Got number 3 wrong also, but will still wait 30 minutes anyway, to look for my arrow and my deer. Waiting all day for a shot at a deer I don't want to take any chances of spooking it if it had layed down near by.
Lighted knocks don't require you to look for them on a pass thru! LOL
I would have got down and looked but answered wait 30 minutes because that was the right answer on the last blood test - oh well
What the F...It takes me 35 min to pack my crap up..so right now isn't possible! You are a tricky man Pat.
How long should you wait to look for the arrow around the shot scene, implies that you are getting out of the tree to look. Excuse me, but your CORRECT answer has nothing to do with how you would actually handle this situation. Of course you would look for the arrow with your binos immediately. You're already scanning for the deer with the binos. If this is really a challenge to encourage hunters to think through their response after a shot, then ask logical questions with logical answers. Otherwise call this game bloodtrail trickery.
PT2.... Same for me. You implied to look for your arrow.. IE get out of the tree. Clue 3 was a stupid question with a deceiving answer.
I got JACKED UP on #3...of course you look for your arrow with the binos:) DOH +1,,,You got me Pat.
#3, sigh... 'nuff said on that one. One thing is obvious for sure - had he used a Rage, that deer would have been cut in half with no need for a blood trail. (probably why he doesn't use them - there would be no challenge) lol (sorry guys - couldnt' resist)
how could anybody who enjoys one of the most difficult and sometimes miserable activities known to man expect a game about it to be anything other than tricky or unexpected??
stars should be droppin for whinin.............
question 3 was BS! even if it was a trick question, there should have been two right answers. right away with binos or wait 30
I agree. The attempt to be tricky was dumb. Just to throw that in there is BS. I know a lot of Bino's that won't focus at that range.
You can't tell what's on an arrow with binos past 30 yards. No way in Hades!
If last contact was 60 yards then i would assume the deer is 65 and within sight of stand. I got it wrong but i would not get down for fear of being seen for at least 30 minutes unless i heard him crash.
#3: really? with your binoculars counts as an answer?? Pat....revenge is ours @ PY Convention.
these are fun though...
#3 was some tom foolery trickery,, but a true no brainer that slipped by me,,Q@%^&^%^^%Q^#Q#@Q!!!!
Geez, guys, some of you need to lighten up. Pat titled it "OMG Edition" and said this one would really give people headaches. He was admitting from the get-go that this particular challenge wasn't for educational purposes, it is for "torture" purposes. ;-)
If you go into it with that understanding, it is a lot of fun! I knew the 30-minute answer was just too obvious for this bloodtrail, so I went back and read everything again on that clue. When I noticed he went out of his way to say something about "even with binoculars" it hit me that he was slyly giving us a clue. The answer was then obvious to me. I'm sure he is going to nail me in an upcoming clue or two. :-)
I look forward to trying to beat his evil mind.
#4 is out there. I picked double lung, based on the deers reaction and the angle of the shot. I also saw little circles of blood on the arrow that looked like popped bubbles, along with smears. I know that isn't pink lung blood on the arrow, but when you hit a deer that far forward, the arrow usually exits out through a leg muscle on the other side of the deer. I chose my answer based on the circles.
After #3 I'm done with these stupid things until Pat can start giving some realistic answer choices. How do you show me a picture of a bloody arrow and then states it means nothing because the bloody arrow tells you the deer was hit. Which is it? Blood trailing is not rocket science and If you have to make if difficult by not giving the right answer then the only OMG is OMG we need someone that actually knows how to blood trail to make up these quizes.
Same here Knife2sharp. Sometimes when you make a great shot on an animal, you don't find any sign until you get down the trail aways.
I'd like to see a blood trail challenge that is like a "choose your own adventure" book. You are given a series of suggestions on what to do next, then you go down that road. One or two bring you to the same outcome, but one may be quicker and there are one or two that bring you down the wrong path. For example, getting down to soon, you may jump the deer, or waiting over night it might rain or coyotes may eat part of your deer.
THIS IS JUST A GAME!!! Don't play it if you don't want to. They have already found the deer. Yes I got stumped on #3 too, but it made me laugh when I got his answer. Truth be told I have actually scoped my arrow out with binos before climbing down before. I just didn't think of that when answering the question.
#3 was ??? in my opinion. If you have all day, WHY get out of your tree RIGHT NOW? Also, the question for #4 starts by saying "After waiting in your stand for a while........." I didn't wait since I thought I was supposed to get down right now? I do honestly LOVE these challenges though!
Knife2sharp, that was my exact reasoning well....oh well, I still enjoy em and this is the second one in a row that my wife (AnnieOakley) is kickin my ---!
I got question 3 wrong! It was a TRICK question I didn't have my binoculars with me! LOL1
OFFHNTN, I think you may have missed the point on that answer. He wasn't saying get down right now, just saying to "LOOK FOR THE ARROW NOW"(with/without binos). I got stumped on it but laughed after thinking about it and the correct answer is the one he has. We just didn't think and that is what these challenges are for. Who wants a perfect score when we know it doesn't always happen that way in the field. Yeah, we know we would have all looked for it from the tree but it's winter and he's having some fun. I enjoy it. Thanks Pat.
Thanks doubledrop, I understand. I will respectfully disagree though that the correct answer is the one he has. If I have ALL DAY, what's the hurry? I won't get down right now, even to just look for my arrow, but I do realize there is more than one way to skin a cat! :)
doesnt the clue of #4 at least slightly suggest that you may have possibly hit the deer--you know, bloody arrow and all?
keep em coming...:)
Yep he got me on 3 after I read the answer I wished I had a foot growing from in between my shoulder blades so I could kick myself in the rear end good one Pat!!
#4 is a joke.
There is dirt and debris all along the shaft to make it appear to be a paunch hit, but the thin blood and what appear to be bubbles (dried) indicate a DL.
I took a guess and got hosed.
I don't like lame trick questions like number 3. How can we learn anything from that. You already knew you hit the deer. How long did you stay in the tree, Pat? Probably 90% of the guys on here thought that was the meaning of the question.
Well I got screwed on question #4. I guess i used personal experience to answer the quesiton. I shot a deer this year and the arrow looked axactly like this one and there was no blood on the ground anywhere. I saw the buck go down, he was double lunged but the entry and exit holes were just high enough that it didnt allow any blood to spray out. I said double lunged and got no points. it sucks but I guess I will have to try and not relate these questions to my own personal experiences.
I don't think this one is about experiences - this one is pure fun and games! its all about answering the questions the way Pat wants you to answer them.
Think back to school - Didn't matter how you thought the question should be answered - it's all about how the teacher wanted it answered.
If the answer to #3 is to go look immediatly then why does clue #4 start out with "after some time you climb out of the tree"?
Anytime you hit an animal and it runs out of site, it doesn't hurt to wait at least a half hour for recovery.
The answers to these questions seem to just be selected only to avoid the correct answer.
It looked to me like bubbles in the blood and with the deer looked perfectly broadside it would be pretty hard to hit one lung and not the other. If this is a high lung hit we won't be seeing very much blood in the next few clues. I guess you can tell what my answer was. Nice broad head by the way.
easy one to answer for me. anytime i pick up an arrow i learn nothing from it.
Blood on the arrow is not "absolutely nothing", it means you hit the deer which is far far from nothing. No blood on the arrow and you climb back in your stand and keep hunting.
I got #4 wrong. It appeared to be stomach matter on his finger and watery blood on the arrow. To me it appeared that the arrow passed through guts. I couldn't see the arrow impact on video.
I meant #4. #3 was a little dirty but #4 was just plain wrong.
Question 4 starts by saying "After waiting a while you quietly climb down..."
Going back to question #3, the best answer to "How long should you wait before you begin looking for your arrow around the shot scene" is now "a while".
Like 30 minutes?? :-)
The arrow confirmed a hit not much else. Didn't tell us much but did tell us something....IMO
I looked at the arrow and it looked like bubbles on it so I thought of a lung hit. But I don't know how you would know if it was a single or double lung hit. None of the answered seemed all right so I picked the right answer. Only 3 stumped me so far.
Sure is a lot of whining on here for a no whining rule.
Bou'bound: When I saw the both on the arrow, my immediate thought was exactly yours. I am feeling lucky to have 27 points at this juncture. Judging by the questions I may be there awhile.
like me, you guys are not reading close enough. Also, like 12yards said, bubbles are in the blood but that could be single lung just as well as double lung. The question says 'what do you know from the picture?' Well you know you have a bloody arrow. Not one of the choices so you have to go with nothing at this point. The dirt on the broad head is most likely from the ground, not the paunch / guts as you would have already determined by looking at the video, knowing where you hit the deer, and the way the deer left the scene. As far as 'looking now' and 'getting down after waiting a while'. Pat said he started looking right away with his binos, that does not mean he got down. just good clean fun...
#3 had me yelling at my computer.
Ya got me Pat!
All the stomach matter on the arrow tells you something toooooo! But probably not anything that was stated in the available answers.
I guess all my gripes on the 3-4 answers have been posted.
What they said, X______.
Cripes you guys act like your entire fortune is on the line here! Its a game, no one said it was a fair game, but LIFE'S NOT FAIR! Hike up your pantyhose, dust yourself off, and get back on the horse.
And for the record, I got 3 wrong too!
I don't need to hike my pantyhose!!! Dang things ride up on me all the time as it is! LOL!
Absolutely nothing means absolutely nothing. Bloody arrow tells me what i suspected that i hit the deer and i felt there was lung blood on the arrow.. Thats something. i would have found out earlier but since i got three wrong i guess a while in the tree isnt a half hour. i majorein engineering not semantics.
Could you see the hit on the video? I watched 5 times and never saw an arrow, course I'm blind in the left and can't see out of my right eye worth a foundered shetland.
the sign is what it is , its always going to be the same , if the deer is dead then it is dead , the hunt was early morning , i have all day , why is waiting three hours to do anything a wrong answer , waiting 3 hours wont change a thing with the outcome , nothing will change if i remain in the tree , if you want to score a good score its not always about doing the right thing , you have to do what they did ~
I am on to you Pat, that one didn't fool me after question 3... :)
There looks to be stomach matter on the arrow. If so, I would back back off and give him a few hours to expire.
9-6-3-0 I'm heading in the wrong direction. It sure looked to me like dried bubbles on that arrow and clearly had complete pass through - hence double lung seemed like the right answer... I'm going to resort to eeny-meeny-miny-mo for the next question...
Ok, I saw 3 blood spots and answered "three" and it gave me 9 points??? Figured it was 4 or more, but I only saw three.
Question #2 I hit the wrong button. I was trying to see the options before selecting so I get 9 more points!
txhunter, everyone's a winner now
Pat has bowed to the crybabies and taken a PC stance, no losers all winners
good for the self-esteem ya know
I demand a picture of the blood area sprayed with hydrogen peroxide for all of us handicapped colorblind bowhunters!!
Willis5 I couldnt see the impact either but my hunting skills are so refined that I can tell the exact point of impact by the sound of the hit!!
There is no doubt that he hit the deer dead in the body I love these things!
TXhunter58--I saw 3 blood spots too...Couldn't find more and I got 0 points!!
I need a magnifying glass or something.
I just suck...
I think I counted 9, and possibly could have been more?
I stopped counting at 4 but Im sure there were more spots.
I sprayed my screen with hydrogen peroxide. Now what?!
The last deer that I shot with an arrow only traveled less than 25 yrds to a grove of trees after I shot him. I made the mistake of going and getting the arrow and unintentionally jumped him from his bed while retrieving the arrow. I found him eventually (500 yrds away). I learned the hard way, if your not pressed for daylight, 30 min to an hour before I get up and go walking around just to satisfy my own curiousity about blood on an arrow!
Recovering an arrow immediately after the shot IMO is definately not the right answer. Most of the time you will get away with it, but waiting 30 min to an hour is definately the safe bet!
Go back and read the answer again to that clue. He didn't say to get down and look for the arrow immediately. He said to look for it from the treestand through the binoculars. It was a trick question and he got you (as well as MANY others).
I saw 5 spots. Wonder how many there really are!!
Canuck - I agree to 5 spots, and that 5th one was nearly impossible
I'll tell you how tough this Bloodtrail Challenge......I am under the impression that Pat designs these challenges, aren't you?
His total score is a 36?! (I wonder if this is through the first six questions or if one of his children is taking the test under his name) LOL!!
Jake, up to six and somehow I'm in the top ten, OMG seems fitting. . . . . .
Last one just got me. I thought the deer fell over here then got up and i picked the wrong answer.
Yes Pat, anyone with a perfect score in this one is either stupid, or cheating. It's just for fun guys.
I laughed my a$$ off when I saw the answer for #3. Ya got me good.
Seems like us Kansas hunters are paying attention to detail.
Number 7 scared me. That is the absolute last thing I want to see in the deer woods.
Ok, even after the explanation I still so see what he is talking about. What is a snookie and where is it?
Question 7.... hahahahaha I am still laughing. Good humor right there! LOL
I thought we went to the woods to escape that in the first place? Number 7 is a good one. LOL! That's NOT my Valentines for sure!
laughed so hard i think i peed a little bit
Ya, what the heck is a "snookie" and where is it???
upper right corner of photo...scantily clad adult female homo sapiens
Seriously, if you guys can't see the raven crested beauty in the tree in the upper right corner,,,, you are definitely taking your hunting too seriously!
However, I would argue that a red fence post in the woods would be far less natural than a babe in a tree.
Man, the one blood trail challenge I do good at and you guys are hammering on me. LOL.
Pat, if Snookie is at the end of your blood trail then it's best to come back next week.
Now, going forward you'll need to include a 'where's Snookie' photo for every BTC.
I really want to give you a piece of my mind but so far haven't composed myself after really breaking up. My compliments to the chef!!!!!!!!
How did she get up that tree?
I will return to the blood trail in 20 minutes. I found something a little more interesting...ok, maybe half an hour.
Now I lost all my concentration!
You found Snookie in the tree for question 7 ? Now I am scared to see what you do to her in question 8. Might I suggest "detox" ?
Ok, i'm going back to question 6. isn't that blood on the dead weed (vine?) right at the bend lower center of the photo?? Just a little spot right there looks to me, correct side of the weed as well to go along with the direction the deer was traveling. The kicked up dirt could be from another deer he was with in the group? Could lead in the wrong direction. JMO. love the challenges.
I have to say that the only unnatural thing in that pic is the fence and that chick is definitely all natural, so I can't understand that one. That is of course unless Pat has some inside information on the formation of certain parts of her anatomy. Now if they are unnatural, then yes I can wear that. Spill the beans Patrick
Tanx Pat, now my freakin' hair looks like 'dis:
wow i have never had to search the tree's for deer i was sitting here for a while thinking what is a snookie then looked back to see tarzans whife,what is the white thing behind the tree in c.
To all my fellow bowsiters....I want to be perfectly clear about this...Jersey Shore does NOT represent NJ at all...it represents 'the bennies' that invade our seashore towns every summer!
And Pat...no offense taken...pretty comical.
BTW....what I do find comical is that only 65% got this question right....are you kidding me..LMAO!!
Snookie is a treestand hunter?Did Snookie shoot the buck ,Pat?.:)
perfect example of deer hunters never lookijng up!
As has been said by hunters since the dawn of time:
"The s*** you see when you DON'T have a gun....."
No more of that...I don't want a situation. Capece?
I thought that last one was too good to be true. Was that natural or unnatural - wait - its a trick - no its that obvious - Pat is tricky - no it is that obvious - I gabe myself a headache.....
Its funny what you cant see when your looking for something else! The only un natural thing I could come up with was the fence.
I been hunting joisy for 36 years - i never seen no snookie in a tree. Fuhgeddaboutit!
If the deer looked up he prolly wouldn't be dead! I got the answer right, but I was looking at the White patch to the left of the Red fence post that looks like a dead deer's Arse!
funny stuff i should have asked for my old ladys help on #7
Saw it from a mile away... have those around my hunting spots regularly.
Never saw it coming but I saw her last week on Letterman for the first time and she is quite impressive! C
tricky, i just knew the steel fence post was the only unnatural object, even after seeing the chick in the tree.
NJ has the Beauty and the Beast. Snookie I put in the beast catagory and a girl I went to HS with named Debbie Harry of Blondie goes in the beauty catagory.
If "those" hang around in trees in Kansas, I'm thinkin I need to start scouting that area a lot more....
I bet clue #8 will go something like this: Can you spot Brooklin Decker in the bush? :)
BTW....what I do find comical is that only 65% got this question right....are you kidding me..LMAO!!
I was gonna right the say thing! Guys are trying waayyy too hard.
Where is number 8? I am ready to finish this one! LOL
As a disclaimer guys, I have lived my whole life not 80 miles from where this picture was taken and never seen one of those things. I'm really glad my wife doesn't look at this site and see that picture. She wouldn't let me go hunting anyway probably.
intertaining,Pat thanks,ive checked for clue 8 twice now
I can't for the life of me figure out why there was so little blood on the ground with that hit! I would think it would have been spraying all over and right away!
Thats it..Us Jersey hunters are shipping snooki and crew up to CT..
Small fixed blade cut-on-contact head?
12 yards.....my thoughts exactly...must of used fixed heads instead of mechanicals....lols
So who was she and how did that chick get into the tree??? Was it a PETA gal spooking the deer?? That would be a new twist in a bloodtrail..confronting an anti! Sorry, hope that never shows up.
That was a fun one Pat, sometimes we take everything to seriously. People are getting cabin fever, go outside and shoot some targets.
I scored a 57.
I can't believe you put Snookie in a tree. I actually caught that one (although I didn't realize it was Snookie). Since the wording of the question was "something unnatural" I was actually looking in the trees for another hunter in a treestand or something and went, "Hey... there's a chick in that tree." and then, "check out the rack on that doe."
Nice buck, by the way.
I enjoy all the bloodtrails, even though I might not agree with all the "correct" answers.
Keep 'em coming ...
I have had similar experiences with very little blood on a heart shot. Seems that the heart stops pumping when hit and that is the end of the blood trail except for the drip. Now clipping the aorta is a different story.
How did you do PoorPoorRich?
I was sweating out #7, since the question said "find the un-natural object" I found Snookie, but isn't she more natural than the barbed-wire fence? Oh wait, maybe you're right...
Another fun one Pat. Mike
It surprises me to hear people talk about bad blood trails on heart shots. I've hit the heart on 2 deer and one antelope and seemed to have blood all over everything. In fairness, though, the 2 deer were more like the BH just kinda slashed the top of the heart. The antelope was right through the middle of it - there was a lot of blood right there in the beginning, but come to think of it, he really didn't leave a huge trail. He only went about 40 yards though.
Pretty good game, cannot wait for more of these. Did them in the past, in the way past, and enjoyed them a lot.
Only confusion I have with this one is that in clue 3 you asked when do you get down to check your arrow and you say, right now. Then in clue 4 you say "after waiting a while" you got down to examine the arrow.
great game, guess I`m average at blood trails but very good at spotting snookies in trees
where is the image for the blood trails?
