Bitter sweet

Recommended Posts

A week ago I went back up on the hill to revisit a tracking job I had on a buck I lost last bow season on my property. I spent half one night and more than half the next day looking for him after the shot. I had a good blood trail for a couple hundred yards then nothing. Most of my neighbors call me when they loose a deer cause most likely I will find it I cause I've been successfully tracking critters for 50years . This one I did not, well I knew it wasn't over and went back on the mission looking for light colored leaves knowing it would be from deer hair scattered we're he layed. That's what I found at first then 40 yrds away there's the head and he's a beauty I had him aged he's deemed to be at least 4 1/2 . IMG_20190428_112051144.jpeg

Subject title is dead on.  Had to really suck at the time but pretty cool to finally find him.  Special deer.

Glad you found it. Good thing coyotes don’t eat antler. I lost a doe this fall that I 10 ringed with a perfect shot. The neighbor found her 500 yards away.  Arrow must have found a gap between vital organs and did not cut enough. You do this long enough it will happen

Ugh. Tough to describe the feeling when you finally put your hands on a deer like that in that scenario. Meat was donated, but you now have that head forever and will be something to share around the campfire. I admire your persistence !
