My fault /Grim Reapers fault. Bad springs not designed for 300 fps with the longer blades. I also grabbed wrong arrow it had been test shot in foam once.Im not saying its ok to tickle anything. I want to stay out of the gut either way. Which is why I'm asking. Based on the angle of the deer, from what i can tell, depending on placement of the shot, the angle at which the arrow go through the deer. Inside the shoulder it should stay out of the guts and through all the vitals with a shorter path through. Outside of shoulder smaller area of the vitals being hit longer distance through the deer and guts.
But based off past event you choose your shot placement. I understand why now. That brings more to the table than someone saying its stupid and telling someone they are wrong for taking. Thank you.
Having a head open up in flight sucks.

What happens when you hit 1" to the right and hit the leg bone?
Bow hunt simulator. Pretty neat app. Definitely a shot you can take if you’re familiar with deer anatomy. Most people will shoot behind the shoulder and hit one lung and liver. Still fatal but a much longer track job.

Shooting behind the shoulder when they are at that hard angle is a bad idea...its a gut shot.I guess im having a hard time understanding why 168 is placing it behind the shoulder.
I had almost this exact situation. I took the shot, hit him just behind shoulder and arrow poked out back side just in front of back leg, did not like the amount of blood so let him lay and I did recover him next morning within 100 yds from shot he had bedded twice
Behind the shoulder? That's liver at best.That little white spot behind the shoulder is my arrow blasting through him
