Thnx. Feels pretty bad.

First one i lost was a result of a deflection. 120 yd shot, 30-06.

Hardly a blood trail. Assumed buck made it.

Next was a big six pt. Montec g5 broadhead slammed into shoulder blade and penetrated about an inch.

Found one drop of blood.
Assumed he made it.


This one hurts

Maybe I'm missing something but have you stopped looking?

Sometimes it takes more than a few hours and a blood trail to find them.

Helped a guy look for a buck one year great blood then pettered out. We looked hard found where he went between 2 bushes and it was like he got carried off by space creatures. It was me the guy i was helping his son and the guys new wife. The kid had to take a leak and walked 10 yards behind us around the bushes we had just pasted even had blood where we were at. That buck had jumpex or when he tipped over ended up behind that bush back the way he'd come from. Just keep looking and good luck.

Just got a call. Buddy of mine checked a crossing out and found buck tracks with a few drops of blood every so often a mile from where we lost it

I have a guy if ever needed whose dogs are 100% on gut shot deer. Theyíll either find it dead or bay it up for the hunter to get another shot. You call and tell him the time you shot and heíll tell you when heíll be there.
Good luck man. No worse feeling in the outdoors world than losing an animal that may not make it.

I hope you find him also but sounds like you didnít hit an artery. Arteries donít throw clots if the deer is moving. Clots to me are a sign of vein hits( low pumping pressure and clotting). If you can stay on him and push him long enough he might lose enough blood and go down. If he stops and rests it will clot and stop bleeding. He probably live.

Lol.

The natives also didn't have a bunch of beuracrats telling them they could only use a bow

Issue is I don't know where to look anymore, no more blood.

Id follow forever if I could. Plus a long shot here with a rifle is 60 yards. I know people who have stepped on dead deer before they saw them

I sat overlooking a dry flood with my wife last weekend on the last day of rifle and we filled her tag.

Got a fawn at 160 yards. Shot across the dry flood.

I hunt with a guy who has been hunting here for forty years and the longest shot he can recall making or seeing was 180 yards.

18 yards seems like the average
