    My daughter decided to hunt my farm tonight.
    I hunted my lease.

    About 515 get a text she shot a buck. So tell her to wait I'll be out in 30 minutes.

    She said when she shot it crumpled on its front end. Got up and faceplanted again. And staggered in to the timber. Thickest part.

    I get there find blood trail in field and where he faceplanted. Then no blood in rest of field to timber. Figure he went straight line. Get into timber find blood but it' everywhere. Trail plus puddles size of paperplates.

    Follow it runs out. On hands and knees as it' under cedar trees. Mark spot head out. Away from way we came in. Found blood up the hill some. So I think he did I circle.

    Gonna go out in morning first thing with the sun and see if we can unravel where he went.

    If not grid search whole timber.

    Best of luck to you. Hopefully he won't be far from where you left off.

    Woke up to rain this morning.

    All blood even at the marker was washed away.

    Made circles and criss crossed thru that jungle. Never found any sign or the deer.
