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?

Congrats for the harvest and dilligence (spell) for looking and finding her.
