Finally was able to put down a plump doe this morning. Hit her a little high and rearward, plus the broadhead deflected off a rib and pushed the arrow even more towards the rear, missing the heart and lungs entirely but dead center through the liver. I imagine the entire arrow was inside the deer as it passed through, coming to a rest only after sticking into the ground. I was shocked that I never found a single drop of blood more than 3 feet from the place I shot her. The area I hunt is densely vegetated, so I lost sight of her within about a second, and due to hearing loss the woods fell silent very quickly. After a few hours of searching, I located a 1" long bit of a piece of tubular shaped tissue of unknown origin some 200 yards from where I shot her. Still no blood to be had. After another hour or so I found her with less than a cup of blood on the ground where she lay, gaping entry wound side up. I flipped her over and saw the reason there was no blood. Apparently the fletches pulled a baseball sized wad of internal matter through the exit wound, leaving it tightly plugged in the process.
