BOW vs GUN Kill on Deer

So if you take a deer with a bow giving the hemorrhaging vs taking with a gun where its more of a impact wound. Have you guys detected any difference in the meat bleed out kill vs a impact? I have not still think how the animal is processed is more important. I do my own processing.

Re: Whitetail Rut 2017

I may be wrong but in my neck of the woods early to mid bow season I don't really consider the rut a factor. More food source and cover. But then again my bow season is my main freezer stuffer.

Re: Sound suppression

....I have heard that the deer hear the noise from the incoming arrow approaching them...correct or fallacy? Anthony :) I'm convinced this is the problem, when it's a problem. I sound test my arrows. Quietest yet: SK200 & 300, Schwacker or FOCs. Vented fixed broadheads are fairly noisy. Some expand...

Re: Micro suppressor vs micro 355 vs 335

My matrix 355 works very well in the woods and thickets of the mountains of East Tn, USA and popup blinds (why anyone wants to put 3pple n bows in a 3ppl popup blind I don't know, its like having a 8person tent and "REALLY" trying to sleep 8ppl and their gear....right). Plenty of speed/accurate/quie...

Re: 20 inch bolts

I shoot 20" BEE out of my M355 very accurate at all ranges to 60yds. Probably would be farther out also but 60yds is my imposed limit.

Re: Micro vs Matrix

I got lucky and got to handle the micro 335, matrix 330 and matrix 355 all in one shop at the same time. Before that I was set on a micro 335. But after handling, shouldering etc I settle on the matrix and finally the matrix 355. Matrix line just felt/fit me better (I didn't even consider the cockin...
