MG11, you never did say at what distance the shot was. And broadside or quartering? If broadside, at a reasonable distance, liver area should have been an easy pass thru, or at the very least, some kind of exit wound. The Rage should have done just that. You stated you think you hit the liver. Did you look at it to see any damage to it. I always try to see what damage was done and to what. It's kind of like evaluating your broadhead. You might want to start doing that, it's helpful to know. Hitting the liver can be a quick kill with in 50 yds., or 150-200, or as much as 300-400yds. The liver has some large arteries in it. If one of those are cut it's as good as a heart shot, and going 30-60yds. If the outer lobe of the liver is cut, it's a slow bleed. It could take an hour or so. With this slow bleed hit, the reaction is kind of like a gut shot, they will want to lie down, if not pushed. If it was quartering away, and you hit liver, I would think you should have had more than 10" of penitration. I'd be curious to know why only 10" of penitration. Then there is always the "wired or relaxed" factor as to how far a arrow shot deer will travel.
The longest shot I ever made was a 33yd double lung, pass through that went some 80yds., with 58lb. setting, with a very sharp fixed blade that I self sharpen. Thats why I question only 10".
never say never
