    I think we need more info on why people take such offense to others besmirching #bonegobbler products? Why so sensitive? Let’s answer that question and then we will all gladly get back to “if deer will die when you bullseye them?”

    Probably above the spine. The spine runs much lower that people think. I shot a buck once and couldn’t find it. A week later l hoot the same buck and it had the broad head and four inches of arrow still in the back. It was as perfectly between two vertebrae right against the spine. It was green but looked healthy otherwise.

    If and only if you used a #bonegobbler approved product....the deer would simply have died from fright. It’s pretty scientific

    Buddy of mine took a quarter size chunk out of the top of a deer's back with a slug gun a few years back in Indiana breaking the back bone. A half inch to an inch higher he would have missed. There was no possible way to shoot any higher over the back bone without missing. This was on a real life deer not the cartoon anatomy deer that so often gets posted. I wish I had pictures because I'm sure this isn't believable to you either. A deer has the same basic backbone layout as a dog and rubRis right here next to me and through her hide and skin I can feel her vertabrae of her back. The void you are referring to is actually between the lungs and the back bone. Sorry to bust your bubble on this as well but it's true.b

    I wonder why so many outfitters won't allow their clients to use these heads. Maybe that should be the next poll lol

    You fellas ever seen a deer get hit by a 1998 Ford Ranger? You know what happens?

    $1850 worth of damage and I still ain’t happy about it all these years later.

    So, you fellas keep on shooting them deer. Let’s keep the farmers and the insurance companies happy.

    Son you aren’t as smart as you want us to think. The void you speak of is a complete fallacy. The lungs go higher than the bottom of the spine. If you are below the spine you must hit lungs. Maybe you need to talk to your buddy Joe again. I’ll find some evidence for you though. Give me a minute. You can see that the spine sets low and leaves a lot of room to hit non vital over it.

    Here’s a video that shows the non void.

    Where are the back straps located at. And what are they attached to. Spinal column. They are just under the hide at the top of a deers back. If you hit up there you are hitting the spinal column and will drop a deer in it's tracks. I promise you this guy would have had a 140 inch deer walk away not hit had he been an inch higher but somehow even though according to you it can't be done hit the deers spinal column and paralyzed it.

    But did the deer die? Direct hit or glancing blow?

    Did you watch the video? The blackstraps set on top of the ribs. The spinal column is below that. Look at the cross section picture and see how much meat is above it.

    I’m not doubting he killed it. However, the slug has a shockwave that can damage the spinal column without severing it. The cord that runs through the column is what drops the deer. Not the actual vertebrae.

    Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can be more like the “waddells?”

    No such luck, she bounced off and headed south. I got stuck with a body shop bill and no back straps to show for it.
