I don't hunt, but lack of broadheads seemed strange. However, as the crossbow had zero personalization marks on it (that I saw) I had assumed it was a snatch and grab thing. That also explains why they were poor hits, as well as several (he may be a tracker, but using an unfamiliar weapon, and sights may or may not be on) can easily throw you off.
That said, it's a show. A fairly well done one, imo. It's one of the few I plan around.
