have a ? for anyone to answer
i shot a doe at like 15yds and my arrow was missing a fletching and i had some brown hair on my arrow but no blood on it and had a good blood trail most of the blood had bubbles in do you think she is down or i nicked her

The brown hair says not a low shot. With bubbles in the blood I don't know why the arrow was clean??? Sounds like a possible single lung hit, but clean arrow is a puzzle. I still check the area really well.

I agree with HM
brown hair & Bubbling blood should be a decent hit
hope you sat for awhile before looking but I would spend the time looking for her untill you are sure she is not fatally wounded
how much blood was there?
