success but what did I hit ?
had a nice size doe come in quartering towards me at 4:45 today. she stopped at about 25 yards and turned and quartered away. I placed my dot just behind her front shoulder aiming towards the opposite shoulder, took the shot and had a solid hit. I watched her jump and walk about 10 yards to a hill side and lay down. after about 5 minutes I watched her head fall to the ground. I waited another 10 minutes got down and slowly walked up to her. to my surprise I saw no entrance wound anywhere near my shot placement. as i rolled her over here I found my arrow went in about a half an inch above her bung hole, and exited in front of her left rear leg. The only thing that i can think is she bolted from string noise ? I know with a shot like this things could have went horribly wrong on so many levels and it wasn't intentional, but is there a major artery that I hit back there that made this such an easy harvest ?
