The blood on your arrow can tell you a lot about your shot placement, but you have to know how to read the signs.

Knowing how to read the blood on your arrow after a successful shot on a deer can be the difference between a successful tracking and a deer that you never find. Take a look at the video below to get some great descriptions of exactly what to look for on your arrows and see just how well placed your shot was.

If you are new to bowhunting, the ability to read the blood on your arrow and then the knowledge it gives you of how long to wait and what to expect when tracking a deer is vital to a successful conclusion of a deer hunt. There’s no worse feeling than knowing you’ve hit a deer and then not being able to find him, and there’s not one better than managing to track down your harvest.
