Beautiful drawing. Your arrow should be in the "V." (Note: the V is sideways, made by scapula and humerus). The closer to the vertex of the V, the faster it will drop (basically). Broadside or quartering away, if your arrow is at the vertex of the V, you're going to watch it fall. An arrow there will generally go over the top of the heart, transecting the aorta and pulmonary artery as they leave the heart. Other than decapitation, there is no more rapidly fatal injury.

Lewy that is an awesome image 👍
:yeah: you can see the bone structure in the far calf as well. Great photo.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Congrats to you guys on your successes.   :tup:
Might need to post up that Korean BBQ recipe...  :EAT:

Store bought sauce of your liking. I cut the loins to a size that would marinate more of the meat and cook faster to not dry out. Put the meat and sauce in a bag in the fridge for 3 hours because that's all the time I had but over night would probably be even better. I cook on a webber and always half coals half indirect heat. I cook over the coals for my color and char liking then onto the indirect side with the lid on til done to temp. Pulled them off and rest under foil for 5 or 10 minutes to finish. They were a huge hit.

Noticing some thin ones as well on the coast.  That dry May weather didn't do them any favors as the summer forage hasn't been great.  Hopefully we have a mild winter.
