Here are some pics of the 2 animals I shot yesterday. The warthog was spined and dropped where it was shot (17m shot) and the baboon only managed to run 35m (21m shot). Sorry about all the blood on the baboon, there wasn't any water nearby.

Baboons are pests and can do huge amounts of damage. They're a fairly tricky animal to shoot as they're very alert and have amazing senses.
I used a 125gr 4 blade Magnus Stinger, hit him in the center of the chest about 3/4 of the way up from the bottom of the chest plate. No pass through but got a measured 11 inches of penetration. It was a HUGE hole and he died within 10 seconds. It was the biggest blood trail I've ever seen. If I can get the video onto the computer I'll post it over at 430gr total arrow weight, 70lb Ross @ 28inch draw.
