    Ok, after following a few lead I went back to the collar, where I also found the nock. Looking at where they were laying, I figured the end of the arrow would have had to have hit the tree meaning he must have gone on the other side from which I had been looking.

    15 yards later I found the arrow. I'm guessing I hit hit front shoulder...

    Looks to be only about 6" if penetration.

    At least I have the direction down now.

    Just had a doe walk within 20 yds. Would seem much cooler under different circumstances.

    Stay positive Fitz. Was he perfectly broadside or quartering away slightly? Seems like there should've been enough penetration. Be patient and upbeat bud!!
