i have read a few threads saying how the the shot deer was "bleed out" is this saying one of the main arturies was cut prior to the gralloch to expell the blood? or just expelling the blood from the shot deer via the gralloch.
I normally H/L shoot deer and by the time i get to the shot deer (5-10mins) and start the gralloch the chest cavity is full of blood is there a need to still "bleed out"?
i can see the need to bleed if the animal was still alive or head shot and you were there straight away as the heart would pump out the blood for you, but if the animal had been dead 5 mins plus the heart has stopped and cutting arturies would make no diffrence
i look forward to the replies as this question has bugged me for some time , just on a lighter note the wife is working late tonight no school for me tomorrow the kids are all tucked up in bed i am nursing a good Rioja with beer chaser after a good venison dinner
