It looks to me with a slightly quartering shot that the arrow hit the offside shoulder and probably didnt have much of an exit. I think it is a really good shot but the blood trail might not of been as good as it could have been if this was the case. I would definitely take that placement, but prefer it to be a little more forward.

Is the exit on the leg?
Nope. It was back of the off-side leg (slightly). That green dot is on the deer's shoulder if he's standing and his leg is back in line with the off-side leg. Exit (if it did exit) would be through the deer's shoulder (if the entrance was on that green dot).

Is that the exit or entrance? If Exit I say to far back, if entrance I say right on the money.

You said slightly quartering. I didnt know you meant quaterting by like an inch. If it exited behind the shoulder it had to have been just about broadside then right? I mean just ever so slightly quartering?

Yes, TeeJay....this is the entrance.

And Greg....your sketch doesn't show the ENTIRE makeup of a deer's shoulder......only the skeletal structure.There's more to the shoulder than that.....and your sketch is misleading to new hunters. There's a lot of cartilage in the plate that surrounds the shoulder socket that can be avoided on an optimal shot. But you know that.

If that is all he is quatering then it looks like it would be a perfect shot.
