Well I jus got back from my out of state trip and while I had a great trip it also had a downturn. I know that each year there are alot of "I can't find my deer" threads and now I am included in that category. While I have lost a deer or two in the past it has been years since I had been in this situation. Long story short I had the opportunity to harvest the biggest buck of my life and a possible booner at that and I ended it with a less than perfect shot. I had spent the last 2 days searchin and retracking w/ no luck. I feel that the shot was fatal but the hit was high and slightly quartering to me. My shot was at 25yds. I was 23ft. high. The shot entered all the way up to the fletchings w/ a 100gr. 2 blade Rage right on the back of the front shoulder and about 3'' from the top of the back. No exit hole so trailin was very tough. We finally lost blood after about 200yds and about 50 possible ways he could have traveled. He was headed towards some VERY THICK! stuff. I am hopin that the landowner and the 2 hunters hunting on the neighboring piece will spot buzzards during the warm weather this week or possible crows. All the neighbors are aware and are gonna be on the lookout for me. I have never been so sick about anything as I am this. I would have much rather missed him than been in this situation.
