Been thinking on it more and trying to envision the shot. It was just high of center (I was thinking that at the time of the shot when I saw the arrow in the deer).
I’ve been looking at deer skeleton pictures and I’m betting I did catch the shoulder blade. Between the high of center and everything else I bet I was just left of ideal as well (they look a little different in real life vs the pictures your trying to use to learn shot placement).
The blood was probably from it just bleeding down the arrow instead of actual penetration.
Thanks for all the help and kind words.
