Last night I had two does come through and the bigger of the two cam just close enough for a shot.
I thought it looked to be 25 but ended up being a little over 30.....

She was eating acorns and at the shot she took a step forward and then dropped a bit right as the arrow got there.
The result was a high hit behind the ribs and under spine.
No passthrough so likely hit part of spine.
Upon further inspection there was decent blood about 30 yards into the trail but still thought it best to wait till morning to look for her.

Blood at 30 into the trail

 -


The Boys and I with the help of Bianca were on the trail by first light....


She went a total of about 300 yards with decent blood most of the way.


Happy crew!!!


 -


The arrow was broke about 4 inches from the broad head and still in her, no exit.....

The shot did hit the lower part of the spine right behind where the liver ends.
No guts were hit.
This is the pic of the trauma.
Top of Liver is Right in front of my hand

Very thankful for a quick recovery on this one, could have turned out much different!
Thank You Lord [pray]
