The arrow did not pass through and there wasn't really a loud impact sound. He ran off about 20 yards and than just walked the rest of the way. He looked hurt, but was not limping at all. The shot looked low and frontal, so I guess it is possible it was a leg shot, but he didn't limp at all. I think maybe I caught the lower part of the rib cage and the arrow deflected. I don't know!!! It just really stinks. Hopefully he survived. Anyway, I'll be back in the woods Friday about noon and than I'll break out the 30-06 for Saturday. Good luck!!
