Two deer with one arrow.............
But that's as far as that thought went. While it was an amusing daydream, even though I had two doe permits, it is far too unethical to even attempt such a shot.
I did send an email to the editor of the newspaper, voicing my dismay at their decision to run the article. I haven't heard back at all. Big surprise there!

Sunday morning I had a 20-yard broadside shot at a doe standing still. My bow is tuned to about 265 fps - in the .23 seconds it took my arrow to cover the 60 feet, she ducked under it without it touching a hair (aim point was heart). This is not the first time I've had a deer duck the arrow, and my bow is not very loud.
This guy claims that he felt confident taking a single shot at two deer. I guess he only shoots at deer that don't duck or bolt.
Also, I happen to know a guy that developed one of the expandable broadheads on the market and they tested it on rib cages and it only had the velocity to go through 3 ribs apparently. It would be a good one for Mythbusters to test out with the ballistics gel.
I shot two deer with one arrow once. About 2 weeks apart, though, with a fresh broadhead after the first one.
I would also add that the shot would be unethical and one I wouldn't take myself just to go on record. Sorry about the small print.
