Default Another “What Happened Here?”…an Odd One This Time

So, by “odd” I am referencing what happens to the arrow.
What caused it to act as it did? I would have expected a pass thru. Or did I hit bone? Did it slap him on the side because he was moving forward? What’s y’all’s take?

My bumping the camera on the shot, sure didn’t help.

The usual questions for y’all to answer based on what the eye sees or what the eye may be tricked into seeing…

Is he dead or still running?
How far he make it?
Catch lung, heart or any other good stuff?
Big blood trail or did it suck?
Where’d the arrow end up?

Thanks for watching and…GO!!!

not sure I saw anything "odd". Looked like a good hit, just stopped at the offside shoulder. Definitely hit bone on the far side. He's dead in 40.

Dang that arrow took a long time to get there, looked like it was in slow motion.

Is he dead or still running? Dead
How far he make it? You didn't find it.
Catch lung, heart or any other good stuff? Looked like lung/good stuff, not much penetration.
Big blood trail or did it suck? Sucked, no exit, injection plugged the hole.
Where’d the arrow end up? Probably broke the tail end off that injection.

What do I win?

Hit a bone, no penetration. No recovery. The arrow didn't go in far enough for a kill.

Arrow went in and hit the opposite shoulder. He's dead somewhere not sure if you found him for lack of a blood trail.... Dang sure isn't worth getting a blood trailing dog out after him!!

To high for heart but got left lung. You didn't get a lot of penetration which makes me think like Dusty Britches that you hit bone on the other side.

I'm going to guess dead, hit opposite side bone and stopped. Plenty of penetration to kill him, they don't take much.

Surely that thing was slicing and dicing when he was running away. Lungs and wouldn't surprised if it cut other good stuff too.

Lung
Poor blood trail
Arrow fell out....

Question for you Jeff....is your feeder usually that low to the ground? Or did it sink in the mud some?

i paused it at about his second step, and you can clearly see a bright red spot heading towards the ground. Cut the top of heart and he died in 26

I think his front side leg articulated back when he flinched and ducked low and loaded to run. I also think you hit his “elbow” or shoulder blade and didnt get much penetration into the front side lung and he ran off with your “arra” and he will be back at the feeder at 7:45 pm in 3 days

Looks like a lot of arrow hanging out of him. I think the broadhead clipped a weed, or the bottom of the shoulder blade and deployed a little early. Still enough penetration to get through the ribs enough to wiggle around and cause a lot of damage to the left lung and part of the heart. Dead less than 50 yards with a decent blood trail after the arrow fell out 20 yards from impact.

Lol! well it has to do with hunting and it's not controversial enough I guess.

A few of you nailed this one.

So, this pig was never found. Neither was the arrow. I trailed weak blood for almost 100 yards until it just ran out. What I thought was odd(to my eyes) was the arrow and the way it acted upon impact. Someone touched on it that maybe offside leg and when he reached to run, it caused the arrow to kind of lay flat on his ribs.

When I left the stand, I thought it was a 30 yard run and done. WRONG!!

I had the same thing happen to me in April. I found the arrow but tracked the pig for over 100 yrds till I lost the blood trail. I'm guessing I only got one lung and yours looks to be the same.

Arrow did not penetrate the shield. Was it a flopper or fixed blade BH?

Good video Dude. Looked like a decent lung shot even though penetration wasnt as desired.

The most frustrating thing about shots like this is losing the arrow and not knowing what happened. Nothing like watching your Nockturnal streaking away never to be seen again.

I’ve personally never seen a shield on a pig this small. I’m sure they exist but I’ve never seen it.

You forgot to mention the 8x10 of Fishndude is him in his shorty shorts.

I think the left shoulder blade came down into the path of the broadhead as he dropped to run. I reckon it rolled down onto the arrow shaft as the broadhead was digging in. That would explain the low tail kick of the arrow anyways.

That was my iPhone mounted to my ladder stand. I had forgotten to pull my Sd card for my Canon Vixia HF G20, out of my computer at home so I had to improvise.

Looked high to me and hit offside shoulder resulting in a light blood trail. He certainly is dead, but as thick as everything is right now it would be hard to find him.

You probably were covered in ticks and chiggers.
