    Bummer I’m shocked that you guys couldn’t find that deer based on the blood sign.

    Didnt find my doe last night after losing blood about 100 yards, recovered arrow didnt pass through. About 12 to 15 inches of penetration. Looked like a good shot. Back at it this morning. Cant find any new blood. Search in direction blood was going. Found her about 30 yards farther then we stopped last night imagejpeg_0(2).jpg FullSizeR.jpg

    Holyshit! Congrats one and all.

    I was in the stand 14 hours yesterday and another 8 today and didn't see a deer.

    If that ain't enough to dispel the cold front theory I don't know what is. :rolleyes:

    I’d say we have done our due diligence. After 400 yards with tons of blood and 400 yards with a few tiny blood spots, at least the buck was still running. Probably another non-vital hit. We did hear ravens and smelled deer blood scent. However the dog couldn’t pick up a track after blood drops disappeared.

    My 1st year of bow hunting. Lots of lessons learned :( Having lost two beautiful bucks, hope I’ll at least get a doe in the coming rifle season.

    That certainly a once in a lifetimer but not the one we are after he’s still on the hoof as far as we know and IMO no one around would keep it quiet if shot its bigger then that one
