As it turned out the shot was perfect but I too thought that I'd hit a bit far forward and penetration had been compromised. In fact, I had about a foot of penetration and the arrow stopped on the far shoulder. Shockingly there was zero blood for the first 80 yards and I never thought we'd see the bull again. At 80 yards it looked like someone was throwing buckets of blood on the ground and the bull was quite dead at 100 yards. I really thought I'd messed up but this picture tells the story. Yup, blue wildebeest are tough!
