I’ve whacked a few dead in shoulder and can’t remember losing one.On 2 occasions there was very little blood because on no pass through but the deer didn’t go very far.One time I shot one right on the shoulder and it looked like my arrow barely penetrated but after recovery it had hit the other shoulder and bounced back out.Deer didn’t make it 60 yds but very little blood.

But that isn't hitting the shoulder blade there I don't think. So that's a good placement. It's hitting that bone that isn't a high percentage shot with most archery equipment.

But everyone is shooting 700 grain arrows with 200 grain 2 blade single bevel BH that bury 12 inches in the dirt after blowing thru at least 1 shoulder with modern archery tackle. So I need to disagree with ya on your assessment

Not with a bow. Every single time with my 30-06.
