How Projectiles Kill Game
A bullet kills game differently than shot pellets or a broadhead-point arrow used in bowhunting. It is important to understand these differences in order to select the best shot placement.
- Bullets kill game by causing massive tissue damage and shock to vital organs.
- Shot pellets need to penetrate through the animal’s hide or bird’s feathers into a vital organ. The damage created disrupts the functioning of the vital organs.
- Broadhead-point arrows kill game by cutting through blood vessels or vital organs, causing massive blood loss.
