Lungs/heart shots changes to body shot.

Postby LeffePeffe » July 12th, 2018, 2:55 pm

Hi first of all i tryed to search if i could find any all ready created.
But I did not find any that where related or "new".

So if there is some moderators maybe can move or merge it.

Location:
Settlers creeks

What happened?
Well i shoot a Feral hog from quite close range from a tree stand with the Compound bow "Parker Python" - Camo
With The standard Arrows.
Bow equipped with the 5-pin Range finder bow sight.

Got a Lungs/heart hit but the hog ran away.
I thought well it will be quite close even if just hit one lung they use to die "rather" quick.
But I had to track it longer distance than i thought from the place it where shot.
But the problem where that after around half way it changed from Lungs/hears to body shot and it where roaming and trotting.
And no more blood tracks whats so ever.

When find it it where hit in the left lung.
So it should at least give me more blood tracks.,

It has happened before that it changed a few days ago when shot a bear.
But did not bother then, but this time i thought i would report it.
Im where in a competition and this waisted to much time ;)
Specially after give no more blood tracks what so ever after it changed to body hit.

Seems this "bug" is 7 years old... Weird mule deer kill with crossbow

It was explained once by Daniel G. why it's not a bug. (I can't seem to find it). But essentially, it's working as designed.

Here it is: Re: Lung/heart hit..?

This sounds like a bugged design flaw,..
this makes no sense to say it's a heart hit track and then turns into a lung hit track that has a body hit..... ;)
I've had it happen and it is just plain misleading from this type of hit.
Needs to be corrected to do what it says it does, or take away the heart hit track when it doesn't hit it IMO.
