A blood trail Ray Charles could follow. Coughing up massive clots. Bubbly blood.

Trail petered to nothing. Shot looked a bit low.

We tracked it by tracks alone for another 200 yrds, never bedded.

That will make 3 deer not recovered. Ten or twelve pts. Tough to tell

Is one season or a lifetime?

Lifetime. Both survived, this one could go either way

Nowhere else to look now.

One of the nicest deer I've seen. Might have been bigger than my biggest ten pt.

If I didn't recover three deer this season, I'd quit. Lol.

I hope you can find him. I hate pushing them and I wait as long as possible, and if no sign of blood and I know I hit them well, I back out. The problem here when you push them to soon, they head for rough country and you never have a chance for recovery. Lot different then flat lands.

Here is just a few pictures of my arrowed bucks blood trail yesterday. He traveled over a half mile and was still alive and trying to get up when I finally got to him. It is amazing how much blood this deer lost and had not expired after 3 hours. This trail was like this the whole half mile. Where he was at bedded the blood was massive amounts.

Sounds more like a flesh wound you start with good blood then it peters out. Double lung shots will go 50 yds give or take. High tree stands give poor angles and single lung hits they typically bed within 100 yards though if you kick them up again and they usually start pumping more blood and die. Best thing is 4 hour wait before pursuing

Hmmm, I don't know the details, but you've still got 3 hours of daylight or better.

If it was me, I'd take my flashlights for the walk back out and stay on it till dark.

You sure the deer you tracked the last 200 yards was the same one? I'd start where you lost blood and circle around a little bit. It's possible he kicked out another deer.

Tough call sitting here 1,000 miles away, I hope you find it. But I'd stay on it till dark anyway.

Ya snowy , but I always hunt if weather is coming. Gonna snow tomorrow.

Otherwise I'd have looked in the morning.

Blood trail was awesome, with clots the size of a deck of cards every so often. Slowly tapered to nothing.

Probably went two miles after giving him two hrs or so. Didn't find one bed


I was going for heart shot, but might have been a touch low. We figure one blade nicked a lung.

You could see an entry and exit, and the arrow sounded good when it hit. Man that sucks.

Made a real satisfying thwack sound

Yay
