If it was a high hit above the spine the arrow would have passed thru some tallow that would help wipe off any possible blood. Was there any hair on the ground or arrow?

x2 There are some pictures out there I know. But I still do not believe in the "dead space"

Very very small speckles of blood on one of 3 vanes, also arrow seemed to be very slippery although no hair or talo / fat on arrow.

Must of shot low and a little far back...who knows. :shock: Once I harvest this deer i will inspect (CSI... :lol: )tha deer for any such wounds. :|

Robert, sucks about the hit....... but as others have said already there is no void area or dead space above the lungs and below the spine.....You either hit backstrap, spine or lungs, there is no area of nothingness......I would bet there was probably brown hair at the shot and if the arrow was greasy with little to no blood, I would guess you blew through backstrap. Was the blood that was on the arrow bright red? But not frothy? Bright red usually = muscle hit. Get back out there and put one through his lungs so we can end the debate. :lol:

I don't understand this "dead space" what would be in there a vacuum? then it would suck the lungs up against the cavity and it wouldn't be "dead" any more. Or do we have "air" in the dead space? and every time the lungs expand it needs to be compressed.
In fact if air were to get in the thoracic cavity it would collapse the lung or lungs(pneumothorax).
My vote is nope, no dead space.
