Why didn’t his arrow penetrate further? Is that common in moose hunting or was his arrow just dull? Bet it took a while for that bull to die?

To get good penetration at a very close distance, one must have an extremely well tuned bow and even then an arrow has not had time to stabilize so penetration can be greatly affected.

Plus this is not a deer, it is a much tougher animal that is much tougher to penetrate.

That was one of my thoughts and the other was, I am getting the hell out of here.

up close and personal , what maybe 2 yards , not a "chip shot" by any means the shooter has major skills , being 2 yards from a couple thousand pounds of pissed moose and making that shot through that thick brush is very difficult
