    I recently shot a doe at a sharp quartering to angle with my muzzel loader. The bullet went in the near shoulder and exited the far shoulder like she was standing broadside. When I skinned her out out to butcher there was green stuff and plant material between both shoulders and the outside of the rib cage. What happened to cause this?

    sounds like the bullet did a magic number on her/ probably deflected through her stomach

      Sounds to me that the round found its way through the deer's esophagus while the deer was swallowing some browse.

        I think Cgull has the answer on this one. You can always find a little green stuff still in the esophagus. The slug most likely ripped through it and the deer, in her death throws, most likely dislodged more into the esophagus and into the chest cavity... no sweat, just rinse it out and happy eating.
