    Muzzleloader Season
    You won't believe this one.
    I was hunting out in Sidney this past weekend for my
    muzzleloader buck.
    Well I got him... I'll make a long story short.
    First off, Mike kept telling me he saw a buck with an arrow
    through his head.
    I thought he was full of it, but he kept telling me he saw it
    again.
    Saturday evening we saw this buck jumping around going out of
    control from about 350 yards away.
    Mike told me it was probably the one with the arrow in its head.
    The buck was with another one that night.
    The next morning I sat up in the tree stand and waited, all of a
    sudden at about 10 minutes after sun up, there were two bucks that came
    right to the side of my stand, 30 yards. I saw the arrow instantly and
    didn't know what to think.
    Anyways, he ended up giving me a shot and I took him.
    Looks like the arrow was in there probably at least a couple
    months or more.
    No blood or anything and you could move the arrow.
    Now check out the pics!

    yeah I saw that... I really can't see how this would have happened. I don't think there is that much room anywhere on the head of any animal that an arrow w/ broadhead could pass through without doing massive damage.
    No I'm not dead

    Looks like the arrow missed anything that is vital. Of course, since it was still alive. I'm guessing it only went through some soft tissue and through the nasal cavity. Would hurt like hell but obviously wouldn't kill you.

    I have taken 1 head shot and I will never take one again! I had a doe at about 10 yards, downwind looking away from me with her vitals behind a tree. Well, I was just dumb enough to try to take that shot, as I released my arrow she whipped her head around and the broadhead caught her in the throat just below her jaw. I thought for sure she would drop within 10 feet, I could see the blood from my stand. She slowly walked to the edge of the woods and took off faster than I have ever seen any other deer run, she went over 100 yards and into a creek. Then she managed to cruise upstream about 75 yards against the current. By the time I reached the river following an enormous blood trail I was beyond amazed and frustrated, and the landowners dog (Jack) started barking wildly, so I ran over to see why Jack's was barking and there is my doe, in the creek trying to keep her wound underwater STILL ALIVE. By the time I nocked another arrow she laid over and let out an awful sounding groan, I was mad at myself for being so stupid, thinking I could ethically take that shot! Like i said I will never take another HEAD shot, I learned my lesson.
