Intermittent issue of vanishing blunt arrows.
Usually occurs when shooting a bird: hit it, it falls unconscious, run over, kick it in the skull. And the arrow isn’t there. Not before or after skinning/butchering. And ‘v’ log doesn’t show breakage message, neither is there broken arrow to be found around or on the bird.

It's a known issue. Arrows that break on/in the target disappear. It can happen with pointy arrows as well, but that's a lot less common.

Honestly, disappearing broken arrows seems better than useless broken arrow items. I didn't think it was a bug!

Well, with broken items you know you don't have to look for that arrow no 30 of the ones you started the hunt with...

You can still shoot those broken arrows. And the broken arrows can break even further. And yet you can still use those... at least for practicing during the coldest winter nights inside your cabin. And they’re usable as kindling for starting the fire on the pile of inferior paddles and rough birchbark boxes...

Ah, then I don’t mind too much. Just found it odd they vanish, when missed shots sometimes break and leave broken arrow behind.

Yeah, it's not a bug per se but simply a message about breakage and/or broken arrow left behind missing from creature based arrow breaks.
To avoid further confusion I'll see about adding it.
