Rarely lost an arrow

Recommended Posts

I told you about my first coyote ever this year but it came on the second shot despite aiming an identical shot to the first one. I recovered the kill shot arrow but not the miss until this weekend. The coyote did a complete backflip but at 305 fps and only being 15 yards away I couldn't believe he just matrixed the shot off and then returned 10 minutes later. I couldn't find the arrow and was beginning to think it had a strawberry blonde twin but I finally got answers this weekend. 

The arrow broke on launch. There was a fraction of the head left on the shaft and no bright green feathers between launch and impact. The broken piece likely landed near me while the rest propelled just shy of the animal into this hard buckthorn. So lucky I didn't get a piece in the eye.
