In case anyone is interested in the autopsy, the arrow entered mid neck, and exited the offside shoulder. While skinning it in the field, it appears the Simmons cut through a fair bit of cartilage and bone in the elbow. I am shooting a very high horsepower rig. 70 lbs at 33" draw, with 700 grain arrows.
The arrow achieved about 18-20" of penetration, and the back end snapped off on brush as the buck turned to run. The other half of the arrow exited 15 yards down the trail, falling out the offside, as far as I can tell.
I put these pictures in the BH pics, Holes They Leave thread, but here they are in case the other thread drops off the page.
