How high is your stand? Unless you have a nosebleed stand or you were shooting way down into a gully, I say you don't find this deer.

At 30 yards, the trajectory will flatten out pretty good sothe white hair indicates a verylow hit. I say that you hit him forward and low in the brisket and thearrow did not pass through and when he ran away, his front legs snapped thearrow shaft in half.This shot bleeds good for 50 to 100yards and them dries up really quick.If it's the hit that I think youmade, this deer will be chasing does again this afternoon.

It sounds like you put your 20 yard pin on him and did not account for the extra 10 yards?
