You know it's a done deal on a bow hunt when you see that much blood.
Broadheads these days are incredible. They're just so sharp, creating great penetration with their huge, cutting diameters. The deer really don't stand a chance. Obviously, with a good heart shot, it doesn't matter what you use--a field point would suffice. But with a good broadhead and great shot placement, you get something that looks like this video.
It's remarkable. The nice whitetail buck whirls off after being pummeled with an arrow and the following scene is something to see. Blood begins to pour out as if someone turned on a water faucet from the deer's vital cavity.
Safe to say this would be an easy buck to track.
We got a bleeder! #beararchery #hewontgofar #bloodymess

He goes on to say a it was a heck of a management buck, but that would be a heck of a buck any place, any time to me. When shooting at a deer that close, pinpointing the heart region like that can be extremely effective. Now all that's left to do is follow the red leaf road of devastation.
As Pigman also mentioned, check out how much all of those deer jumped the string after the shot. Dipping a couple inches before the arrow made its mark. Always something to think about while bowhunting.
With deer season approaching, I wish you all luck in findin blood trails like this one this season.
