This was my thoughts on page one and the first picture. Wasn't shot, just a freak accident of an arrow lost on the ground.


Clean traps,tight lines,straight shooting

I am sure if it doesn't fit the narrative they have created in their mind , it just can't be.


if say an archery hunter was close enough to make a shot into the leg intentionally that archer would have been say 30 yards away or less

if the archer had a bad release drawing back on a deer the arrow would have sailed in maybe 150-200yards arrows jut don't travel that well


it's been a while since I was on a trail ride through the Kettle moraine about 35 years and maybe the kids now carry speakers and blast music on horse trail rides , it seems strange that you wouldn't have noticed an arrow falling from the sky into the horse you are riding or the noise from the bow , a guy in a tree something.

If I made that shot intentionally with my hunting bow at 30 yards, that arrow would be sticking well out the bottom of the hoof.
