sorry I was thinking PM. Not sure why.Te
texas gulf coast. 6:41 AM. I think shooting light was 6:20 or so.
there was fat. It wiped the arrow pretty clean. The blood on the arrow was lighter red, not pink but not dark.
it didn’t stink, when I saw that he wheeled away I was worried about guts, but it smelled like normal blood.
That’s why after talking with the dog handler and reviewing everything. We think it went in behind the shoulder and maybe came out his front. That would explain the fat.
it’s certainly possible when he ducked and dropped back it opened a window to do just what you described.
my money is on hitting him above the spine based on all the information gathered. But obviously way too much unknown for that to be a useful opinion.
Good luck going forward and thanks for sharing with everyone. Hopefully you guys get good intel in the coming days. Let us know if any thing comes up!
