As hunters, we should know how to quickly and cleanly kill the animals we pursue. Not just how to choose a bullet or broadhead. Or how to place a projectile "in the vitals". We should understand the animal's physiological systems and how to affect those systems to cause death.
In this episode, we speak with Hornady's Lead Ballistician, Jayden Quinlan, to understand how, exactly, animals die. We eventually work our way into talking about the performance of projectiles — such as expansion and penetration — but the primary purpose of this episode is to provide a foundational understanding of physiological systems and how to affect those systems to cause death.
Whether you hunt with bullets, broadheads, or both — you will find great value in the information shared in this episode.
