This deer was shot several years prior and when they dressed it out they found this!

Take a close look at this, absolutely amazing! This deer was shot with an arrow years ago. Lucky, the shot was not fatal, the deer survived. The shot broke off some off its ribs and the arrow head remained in the body. Amazingly, the deer’s body used the arrow as a splint. The bones almost grew around the shaft of the arrow. The arrow head is clearly visible.
