The arrow entered in the upper right gluete and mostly hit guts. The broadhead passed about half an inch from a major artery (femoral?) just as the artery forked. I messed up the left lung when removing it and couldn't tell if it got pierced. This was my first deer that wasn't lung shot so I am very happy that I was lucky enough for it to bed down nearby.

I've heard it said that Christianity is a crutch.  To me, it's a walking stick to use on the path of life.
