So on my way to my spot I'm running kinda late the other day only to find deer already there and I decide to see how close I can get when one good size doe breaks off and heads my way. I get behind a big Maple and start trying to put on my release, finally getting it on and while nocking the arrow the deer is already 15 yrs away and spots me. I freeze and the deer just stomps her feet and trots back the other way, stalk is over so I continue to my tree and the six deer scatter, oh well, they might come back.
Come back they did an hour latter but not before they picked up 3 more "friends", with eye's all around it was hard to set and draw but I did manage for a 25yrd shot. The arrow flew two feet right of where I was aiming, when I climbed down and noticed one the three blazer fletching were gone, so I guess the cold had a hand in that. I have never had a vane just fall off before, I build my own arrows and only ruin them by shooting at my targets and hitting deer.
Anyone ever have a vane simply fall off?
