    Sorry for your loss. Same thing almost happened to me. Shot this doe perfect broadside. Was using some random fixed blade I received in the mail. Reason for using it, I got a little lost on the way in and ended up climbing a random tree. When it got light I saw too much brush for my mechanical. I saw the arrow hit and dona 90 straight down. Deer ran 30 and stopped. Waiting for her to fall a buck started to come in hot on her trail. This was going to be my first double. Well she ran off and he followed. No blood just brown hair in the broadhead. If I would have shot both, I would have dragged each of them to the trail I knew was to the west then went to the truck for the cart. That would have been exhausting. Technically it would have been the end. The next day I did not feel well and had my son call 911. 90% blocked artery. I call that doe my guardian angel doe, for not dieing on a perfect hit. Again sorry for your loss.

    Very sorry for you and your family on this loss. I read this last night shortly after you wrote it. Was thinking the same as many others were also. Wild Things thoughts were the same as mine. Again sorry this happened.

    Hunter S. Thompson said: “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

    Though it is small consolation now, I have to believe your Brother-In-Law arrived with just that much excitement because he was engaged in his happiest of moments when he left. My deepest condolences to you, and your Family.

    That's awful, Steve. So sorry to hear the terrible news.

    I hope you can find some peace and comfort thru your friends, family and in the fond memories of your brother and the time spent with him.
