    I managed to take this old battle scarred Impala ram today at 22 yards, he was quatering away when the Excalibur Firebolt tipped with a 4-Blade 130gr Muzzy broadhead passed through him, breaking the far shoulder. He only went 68 yards, but what is even more amazing is that I actually found a part of the lung on the blood trail, it seems that it was severed by the shaving sharp Muzzy's and fell out of the gaping entrance wound about two thirds of the way along the trail the ram took. This is the first time I have seen this while bowhunting, I have seen it a few times when hunting with a high powered rifle but never with a broadhead tipped arrow. Incredible.

    That's a big chunk and the piece looks intact, basically just cut off...
