If you hunt long enough, some weird stuff will happen. What is the oddest thing to happen to you while bowhunting?

Mine stands out like a case cold Bud.

I shot at a small 5X5 bull elk-18 yards. Since I was looking at the antlers, thatís where the arrow went. Arrow bounced off the forks of the left antler, took a sharp right off the right antler and buried to the vanes in the heart of a small 6X7 I didnít even see.

Constipation has ruined many a good day. Not as many as stupidity, though.

I can't remember what number she was, but one of the first does I shot was found with the arrow sticking out of her right side. Pinned to her side by the arrow was an oak leaf with a perfect three blade cut made by the broadhead. I don't remember any vegetation being in the way when I made the shot.

It was just a weird sight to walk up on.

I shot a doe with one shot/one arrow and put four holes in her.

Entered slightly quartering away with her head down. Somehow turned while inside her to exit between her front leg and passed through her neck.

I had a slip knot tied on my rope that i pull up my bow with, and i had a cowhorned spike come walking up the ridge. Well he walks right under my stand and is sniffing around. I was stood up by this point. He never winded me or smelled me or even acted like he had the slightest clue i was there. But when i let my rope down there was quiet a bit of slack in it. This spike put his head IN the slip knot, all the way down to his horns, I was almost laughing to the point that i wanted to yank on my rope and see if i could pull him up with me. He smelled around a little more and walked off. Pretty kool experience.

In my younger days, (high school(, I shot at a doe one morning just as light was breaking. She ran off and I had no idea if I hit her or not.
As the morning progressed and it got lighter I heard something
scratching around in the leaves and noticed a deer.

It was a fawn that more than likely was feeding at the time, with
an arrow just above the eye.

Don't know why I continued to hunt after this incident.

I shot a doe , and the arrow glanced off the back of her shoulder . The arrow traveled lengthwise and exited the lower quarter on the far side . But somehow as she ran off , the arrow broke in 3 pieces .
The fletching end was broke off on the entry side , the middle part of the shaft was in the deer , and the broadhead with a few inches of shaft traveled the full length of the deer and exited . She didn't travel far .
