What I heard is that he stepped in front of the bow as it was being shot and it didnt get a full power stroke which is why it didnt penetrate very far. I dont know how true that is. It looks pretty dang nasty!!

A rage would've zipped right on through that skull cap.
lucky it was an aluminum shaft with some real old wide, heavy tipped broadhead.
well.. maybe lucky isn't the right word..if he was lucky.. it would've been a suction cup arrow..

This is gonna give bow hunters a bad rap. If that was an intentional head shot, that bow hunter should have his bow taken away.

It happened in Burlington, VT in 2001. Here's the story. I saved it for teaching safety.

BURLINGTON, Vermont - An Underhill man shot in the back of the head with an
arrow while bow hunting is recovering slowly, according to his family members.
Ron Derouchie, 24, was recovering at home Friday, Oct. 12, 2001 after his brother,
Brian, 22, fired an arrow into the back of his head.

The arrow penetrated Ron Derouchie's skull and pierced his brain, stepmother
Wendy Derouchie said.

The family is worried about whether the arrow caused lasting vision damage.
Ron Derouchie is having trouble sleeping and not feeling well, but his outlook
is good, she said.

"He has a lot of headaches," Wendy Derouchie said. "He gets really tired."
The brothers were hunting deer at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Underhill when the
incident occurred, said Lt. Robert Rooks, acting chief of law enforcement for
the Fish and Wildlife Department.

Police are treating the incident as accidental.

When Ron Derouchie shot, he bumped his brother, who had drawn his arrow back and
was preparing to release it, Rooks said. The bump caused Brian Derouchie to
swivel as he was shooting, and the arrow hit Ron Derouchie in the back of his
head, Rooks said.

The fact that the brothers were standing close together prevented the accident
from being worse, Rooks said.

"The arrow wasn't able to gain the momentum that it would, had it actually been
released," he said.

Ron Derouchie remained conscious and walked from the woods with his brother, who
was shaken by the incident, Wendy Derouchie said.

"As they came out of the woods, Ron was calming Brian down," she said.
Surgeons spent three hours removing the arrow.

The thickness of the skin accounts for this, Stupid. The scalp is actually a lot thicker than most people think and this was a big 'ol boy, so it's even a little thicker on him.

I can only imagine a big ole boy carrying his passed-out brother out of the woods with an arrow hanging out of the back of his head and explaining it the the EMT's who were standing by.

Hopefully they were in a crew cab truck. It would have been difficult for the dude to sit in a truck seat and have to turn his head to the right, roll down the window so the shaft could hang out and drive. I guess as long as he only made right turns.....
