sorry for the delay. It was recovered from the ground, she was standing on the side of a ridge. shot was somewhere between 60-70 yds. She was slightly quartering to, entrance was in the right shoulder exit was just behind the shoulder. hit scapula going in and rib coming out. Pretty impressive. oh and it left a 6 inch gouge in the ground, had to dig another 4-5 inches to find it.

Almost forgot it was a 2 1/2 year doe whitetail I'm guessing 120-130 lbs
