Default Doe still alive...

I copied this from another forum. I'm combining some posts but here is what was posted
Quote:
my brother in law shot this doe 3 weeks ago and we never found it. Finally, his camera took a picture of her...
We can see the hole in her....
This is the exit side. He was 10 ft in a ladder and took a 30 yard shot with a Spitfire broadhead.
Deer are tough critters. This must have been a meat hit.. killed the backstrap for sure. Just over the spine if you ask me.

to me the shot looks high. kinda in the no man's land zone. right under the spine just over the lungs. also the wound looks like a slit indicative of a two blade not really sure though. i wondered had that been a 3 or 4 blade head would it have caught the top of the lungs and been fatal?

was that the entrance hole or exit hole we are looking at? hard to guess what is on the other side. that could lead to more conclusions.

Can you show me where there is a no man's land? If that deer was hit with an arrow and it penetrated it would have caught lung and would be dead. There is no void between lungs and spine. The shot was probably taken at an extreme angle and the wound you see is where the arrow deflected. Maybe? Who knows? But definately not a so called no man's land!

just look at what they say happened, 10 feet up with the target 30 yards away. Unless you are hunting the edge of a cliff How dose an arrow go in above the spine and come out where that wound is? Looks like a magic arrow if you ask me.

Think about the trajectory of the arrow. If you are ten ft up and a target is 30 away the entrance would be 1-2 inches above the exit depending on the velocity of the projectile. The only way to hit above the spine and have the arrow exit in that spot is if the deer is 0-5 yards from your tree.

Also anyone else notice that the hole is most likely 3.5- 4 inches left to right. I have shot most of my deer with spitfires and they do make a big hole but i have never seen one like that.

The spine dips down quite a bit over the leg, and that was the exit wound. I think it was above the spine.
Although I doubt the "void", that pleural space can get full on a inhale or with a full stomach, or may not fill the rib cage if not. Im not sure if the lungs are suspened just from above or front. ????
