I am not surprised at the result. Granted, this was ridiculously close range, but there is a tremendous amount of force in the point of an arrow. Just ask medieval knights.
I am even less surprised by the crossbow result – Pope Urban actually banned their use against Christians in 1096.
From Wide Open Spaces:
The compound had a Muzzy broadhead, and it appears it would have only poked the skin. I’d consider that a success.
However, the crossbow had quite a bit more penetration, and in fact, it could have been potentially fatal. Without a bulletproof vest, both shots would have been a clean passthrough at that shooting distance.
