Finally my patience go off after see a lot does in the last week with no bucks around, have almost 10 does to shoot in the 15 and 20 yds in the last 2 weeks, just have 3 more full days for hunt , family come from spain for christmas so when I see a big doe I shoot it .
My spot have does around all mornings and afternoons whit some spikes and 3 points buck but the body smaller than a doe , I was little disapointment with my shoot , my broadhead was open 1mm on the left before the shoot of course I did not think it would affect me much but was , the doe was 20 yds I point on heart and I hit in the center of rear legs 2 yds left, the broadhead make 4 inch hole entrance and 6 inch out and cut the stomach I can see the intestines drop off the doe run and crash with down tree and broken rear leg , get 15 min and go check no blood trail for the next 80 yds then I find the most insane blooding trail I ever seen while hunting, I follow her almost 600 yds and I need to shoot again a fixed broadhead at 25 yds in the brush this time shoot in the lungs and die 25 seconds.
Im dissapointed with the rubber bands from swacker I thin with the warmer days in septenmber and cold days rubber lost some tight so left knife have some play, off course Im happy with broadhead performance this swacker 150 gr 3 inch cut is insane, I never see someone recover a wounded deer in back legs insane pics too.

Thats the diference between swacker 150 gr and dead ringer trauma almost same cut but dead ringer have better ruber band, first pic is the broadhead before shoot i have 2 in the quiver both same problem.
