    i did a little looking in the deformed leg and found a bullet frag that weighed 3.7 grains, no lead attached as far is i can tell and jacket thickness was .021'', i didnt do a good thourough search but there is a roughly .284'' hole into her leg bone with no exit...... I will do some more searching later.

    You'd be surprised the percentage of elk I cut that have been jacked up in the front end and healed.
