    I always enjoyed when Foxworthy called him Marvin Wafflehouse on the Real-time videos.

    I watched the video. What about when the deer exhales and the deer’s lungs deflate? I personally had an injured doe walking my property for weeks that ended up dying in my yard from infection. She had a hole shot below her spine through and through. I assumed dead zone but if not she lived for weeks from a high double lung shot.

    Yeah there is no dead zone ever. The lungs don’t deflate on the exhalation. They are always inflated. I’m wondering if the shot was above the spine. The vertebrae actually sticks up and an arrow can go between them and seems like it’s below the spine.

    I just know not all shots are what they seem.

    Im hoping Im not the only person with you on this. IF a deer cant breathe it isn't gonna survive. Not sure how people are saying that a deer center punched through both lungs with a broadhead will live.

    I can't take anything you say serious from now on. Its obvious you know nothing about a deer if you think 1 inch below the skin is the actual spine on a deer.

    You are lucky you walked away from it. Dodges don't live long after a grill hit.

    I don't give any credit to this video. 2 reasons. First is the deer he is using is laying on it's side and lungs are like Jell-O. Second I've never seen a deer use an oxygen tank to breathe and 100psi of compressed air.

    So a screenshot of a text message is better evidence than a video reproduction of an actual deer. I sure hope you never have to defend yourself in court.

    In a person, not a deer, this is how the spine is constricted. You have a column of bones and housed within the bones is ur spinal cord. In us it starts with 7 cervical bones, 15 thoracic bones, 5 lumbar bones, then ur sacrum. Each spinal bone consists of a vertebral body, a spinous process, and transverse processes (one each on the left and right). The part that stick out that you can feel down a persons back is the spinous process. I would assume it is similar in a deer's anatomy. Breaking a spinous process does not necessarily mean a debilitating injury to most. Painful yes, debilitating not always. Damage to the cord, which is held within the hollow cavity located in the vertebral body is debilitating. The cord is the nerves that make things work. If it is damaged, things no longer work. I have personally butchered more than one deer missing chunks over there back bone (spinous processes busted or missing in part) and they were still on their feet as I or a family member killed them.

    I voted no because if a deer can't breath it can't live. No offense to anyone but there are exceptions to everything and the case of say even 5 deer surviving a wound like this is still right at 0% compared to the number that don't survive.

    Of course you don’t. The guys only an expert and been studying deer anatomy for years and years. So you think the jello lungs would withstand 100 psi of air pressure? He simply put enough air in to inflate them.

    There’s other stories and articles and pictures of this myth. Google is your friend. Do your own research.

    Screenshots from a biologist with kdfwr who ages and studies deer. If you don't know who Joe lacefield is you might want to do some research.
