Ill tell ya I have taken more deer with arrows than bullets. I have never had a deer go more than 20-30yds after a pass thru with a arrow,and some not go 20ft.I have had perfect rifle shots and had to track for 100yds.My point is only belieave half of what you see and none of what you hear.In all the states Ive hunted it is illegal to hunt deer with a 22lr
