I think the key word is "hits," as opposed to "falls in," or "lands in."

If you shoot an arrow, and the arrow "hits" the apple, you worry that something might have happened to the apple.

If you shoot an arrow, and it "lands in" the forest... -- You're probably not too concerned for the forest.

Maybe I'm just a stickler. -- I think it could be easily misunderstood, though.
