    I wounded my target buck and did not recover. After two days of tracking including a tracking dog and over a mile across several properties. Thought it was good but apparently it wasnt.

    Sorry to hear that. Sounds like you did all you could and at that point he’s probably got a pretty good chance of surviving. Second chance could be coming your way

    Hell if I had all the big ones I missed in my life Id be in the 800 club. It only makes my drive stronger.Its kinda like golf, its not the last shot its the next shot that counts.

    That crap happened to me all the time vertical hunting, which is one of the main reasons I switched to a crossbow.

    The 1st buck I had mounted, I had to let down my bow 2 times and 1 of the times the arrow came off and fell to the ground. He never ran off and was able to knock another arrow and put it in the boiler room.
