Let me explain a situation and then I would appreciate some feedback. First, Sunday eve I was hunting a 5 acre soybean food plot, which happens to be the only standing agricultural food source for 3 square miles. It was 0 degrees and wind chill was somewhere between 25 and 35 below zero. I was in my ground blind at 3:00pm, which lies adjacent to the south section of soy beans, 50 yds from the west border. At 4:57pm I notice 1 deer (it did not have antlers but I swear it was a buck) about 100yds to the Northwest of me in the soys eating then 5 minutes later I have 4 bucks come out of the woods and get into the soys approximately where the doe /buck was, one of the bucks was the deer I have been waiting for all season long (a 150”10 point, which I have multiple pictures of), so I decide I’m going to take this deer when an opportunity presents itself. He stands to where I could only catch a glimpse of his back when he has his head down in the soy beans due to him being on a downward side of a slope. The other deer start moseying towards the south but he remains in the same location. Fast forward, I have 3 minutes before legal shoot time expires he has made a little progress towards me with almost ¾ of his body exposed to me. He is quartering away from me (pointed to the southwest). Mind you, my hand has been on my gun, exposed to the air since I first seen the deer at 5:00pm, now it is 5:10, so my fingers are burning at this point and I decide I can’t wait any longer. I put him at 70 yds, put my cross hair on his left shoulder, ¾ quarter of the way down his body, which again was slightly quartering away. I am shooting my 50 caliber TC, 100 grain pyrodex pellets, with 295gr XTP bullet. At 60 yards I was 2 inches high a 1” to the left when sighting in. I shoot, smoke starts to clear and I see the deer make an abrupt 45 degree turn, and then he disappears, the other deer run back to where he was running, which I believe is the same spot they came out at. I immediately back out of my blind with my Kawasaki mule, which I hunt out of because I’m paraplegic. Make a beeline to the spot I shot him at. No blood or hair. I look back into the woods and ¾ quarter of the way through I see all deer running through. I decide to start looking for blood…nothing. I drive back into the woods scan the woods and look for blood… nothing. Go back out in the field and look for blood, nothing. I can’t believe I didn’t hit that animal but no evidence of blood or hair and searching to about 200yds from the point of impact. I am really frustrated at this point. The deer I have waited all season for finally shows up and I get impatient and make a poor decision to shoot. My question is, will he come back after being spooked like that, and for that matter will the other deer? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
