If that were true then you'd never be able to shoot into a practice block without messing with the spine. Zipping through a deer and hitting maybe a rib is a lot less destructive than the sudden impact and abrupt stop of a target.

You need to aim between the ribs if you can.

I've never bothered to keep track of the arrows I've killed deer with. If they're still straight, they just go back in the rotation. However, I've not had much luck with reusing broadheads. Those gravelly ridges around here are tough on them, and they're not that expensive.

Flex test the arrow, make sure BH isn’t bent or damaged, resharpen and shove back in quiver.

Most times the BH doesn’t do well. Like Hobbs said, If you get a pass through or miss, you got layer of leaves then rock.
