    The clicks I've experienced have all been cam bearings, and the limb pocket may be a different issue or the source.

    Both need to be addressed.

    5" is a fair amount of penetration, but on a big buck, it's less than a lot. If you had hit the spine, he would have gone down, but if not, there's a lot of muscle there, and not much lethal.
