Where was the entrance? The neck?

I don't see any signs of "explosion". I see trauma, and trauma kills..
The problem is that trauma does not kill (quickly nor humanely) on the shoulder. Penetration kills on the shoulder. Neck/head shots are not the best choice for general purpose hunting since they are not easy. After that trip I switched to barnes LRX and Nosler partitions and problem solved.

Ok. I don't see a problem personally. I see a dead critter, which is the goal.

You did not shoot it in the shoulder correct? So why reference it? You shot it in the neck and it expired.
