They are giant heads and they leave good holes but very little blood for some reason maybe it was just a coincidence with these two deer.

Did you get pass throughs? where did you hit them? I was struggling to get them killin sharp for a few years and that helped my trails..

First went from guts to liver. I wasn't expecting much blood form that but that was a pretty tuff track job. We would go 20 yards before finding blood again. (pass thru)

Second went from 3rd to last rib to right behind the shoulder almost a textbook shot (pass thru)

third went right through neck :smiley_armscrossed: good blood on that one and dead within 100 yards. (pass thru)

We get these heads scary sharp with our wheely sharpener.

yeah that is what i started using too. you have the one on a grinder or buffer right? that is kind of the bitch with 2 blades at times. clotting or debris in the wound channel can stop the flow up some.

Ours get pretty sharp with the wheely and a piece of cardboard or leather.
Have you taken any deer with a simmons?

Holy shit. I use the same sharpener when I'm in a pinch and don't have time to do it on a stone. We keep one of those down in the skinning and quartering cellar. Gets a knife razor sharp in only 3-4 passes.

A snuffer will do some serious damage to a deer I don't like shooting them out of my 46lb bow though.

Jack last night i had my knife sharp and ready to help skin dads deer in less then 5 swipes with that thing
