I have been shooting 100Gr 3 blade muzzy for about 20 years. I don't always get this result but it was a good clean heart shot that did this. I have had at times very little blood but have no problem on recover because of bleeding out inside.

I've had similar experience with minimal blood trails on broadside double-lung shots - bow and crossbow. Here's a crossbow bolt from a recent 30 yard double-lung. I was shocked at how clean it was! No blood trail the first 30-40 yards. Deer made it about 75 yards.
Oh, and I shoot 100 gr Muzzys on my compound and crossbow.

The deer was found right away, he was running dead.
I have had about the same results you have with good placement deer found right away and an arrow that looks just about like yours and no blood trail to speak of. They just bleed out inside.
Man, we gotta figure out how to avoid those "no blood" scenarios. I just posted one in the Elk/Arizona forum about a bull I couldn't find for 6 days. Good shot, maybe 2-3 inches high (tops from "perfect"), but double lung for sure. Bloody arrow, no trail at all.
