Not exactly, Troy. The ‘starburst’ cut is common in intestine hits, but not the lungs. With lung hits one often sees “homogenized’ lung tissue; tissue all mushed up. I can’t take credit for the ‘homogenized’ moniker; Ray Hammond came up with that after looking at the lungs of hogs he’d shot with the Grizzly. The other unique cut often seen with single-bevel broadheads is the “L-Shaped” cut, often seen on exit wounds and on liver, heart and kidney hits.
Congratulations, Dave, on a fine, clean kill, hunted and taken fair and square, and with a unique rack to boot.
