Shot this deer Monday evening with one of them. I didn't use the orange collar thing that came with them...maybe should have? Anyway I don't think shot placement was the fault here...this is the exit hole and the entrance was even better as far as placement goes.

Now for the story:

Shot this deer at 21 yards exactly. It was a complete pass through shot. Upon impact the deer just fell down when it tried to run. It scrambled to its feet and took off down through the woods. I watched it til I saw it run into a tree and flip with its back legs going over its head...and it was white belly from shining from there. Made it about 80 yards from where I shot it.

I sat til dark because this was very early in me just getting setup and saw several more deer but not shots. I climb down and go get my arrow. For once...my lighted nock lit up and stayed lit. Haha. Then began blood trailing. Well that's where I was disappointed. This deer didn't bleed much at all. I mean honestly, if I wouldn't have seen the deer fall and knew where it was laying...I would have probably backed out thinking I hadn't made a good shot and came back later. Very very little blood. When I got to the deer the first thing I thought was that my entrance was good but maybe it was angled a bit more than I thought and that the arrow had exited far back...thus the gut plugging a hole. Well that wasn't the case. When I flipped it over and saw the entrance and exit holes I was bum puzzled. When I started field dressing I thought maybe the cavity would be full of blood but it really wasn't that bad. This deer didn't start spewing out blood til the last 15 yards or so from where it lay.

Blood trails can vary a lot ,with similar shot placement and using the same brood heads and scary sharp blades . I have had varied results with all broadheads I have used ove the years . I never judge a broadhead based on one kill .

First and foremost, I am not a Rage hater as I have never shot them or had any dealings with them. With that said, you and your experience of little to no blood on a well placed shot with a Rage broadhead is about the fourth I've heard of this year. Emphasis on this year. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not. Thanks for sharing your story, I sincerely appreciate, and much prefer, unbiased feedback.

Radar -- I certainly agree. This is just the first deer I've had a chance to shoot with the chisel tip. I have a 4 arrow quiver and each arrow in it, has a different broadhead on it. I've got the NAP Killzone, Ulmer Edge, Rage Chisel, and Slick Trick. I always keep a fixed head on one of my arrows. When I get to my setup, I will just reach and grab different ones each time.

The Rage Chisel did its intended job...it put the deer down for the count and within sight of my stand. BUT had it been thicker in there, or if the land lay different to here I couldn't see where it went and watched it fall...I would have been in for a touch tracking job. I am not the best at tracking deer...that title goes to my dad as far as my personal experience. But I am the guy the family and friends call to come help when they lose blood on one. So I ain't that bad at it either I don't guess, since they have faith in me LOL. I've found several that they had all but given up on finding.

Anyway...I will keep on keeping on. Wife is going to use my muzzleloader next week while I stick with the stick n string. She hurt her neck again and doctors orders not to be shooting her bow. But she is determined to get a deer this year and she likes ML hunting. Maybe I will have a field report on the NAP Killzone next.
