There was no hole in hide and archery season was month prior. Bone was starting to heal earlier.

I would agree. Seems like something would have rusted, my STs have discolored over the years.

That's wild, elk are tough like that. When the bulls fight they can get stab wounds from the horns of their adversary.

I had a buddy shoot one in Kansas one year they never found it, the next year his son kills a big eight point and when cleaning the deer he found his Broadhead.

Seen Michael Waddel shoot one with his bow. He dropped it off at a local processor. The processor later called him and said he retrieved his arrow for him. Mike was like "What are you talking about. Mine was a complete pass thru". So he goes to the shop where the guy shows him a broadhead and about a 1/4 of the shaft that he pulled out of the elk's chest cavity!!!
Crazy!!!

I'd say that happened this archery season for a couple of reasons. Hide can certainly heal in a month. Bone would be long healed if if were from last season. A year old foreign body would likely be encapsulated in scar tissue.

tough animals for sure! Have heard and experienced too many stories for archery elk and finding broadheads inside elk. But there is nothing greater than to call one inside 30 yards!

My dad killed a cow elk in Co one year that had about 10" of an aluminum shaft and a broad head parallel to her spine along the back strap

my buddy shot a bull this year in New Mexico on our hunt. They found his arrow and 2 others in the bull he killed. One was lodged in the spine.
