Legacy -The 2020 Season-

Recommended Posts

Looking at your arrow and a slightly quartering away shot, i would say you hit just behind the shoulder with the entry, and hit the opposite shoulder blade (and as he took off he broke the arrow off with his shoulder on the entry side).  Looks like you got lung, and even better the arrow was still in there doing damage.  I agree that he's dead, but take your time!

No dice. Just.......unreal. Found someone else’s nice 7 point. Sickening. 
I couldn’t be more upset with myself 

Sorry to hear that but it happens.
I as well would be back out in the morning.
We all have horror stories of unsuccessful tracking jobs.
I once found a big section of intestine in a tree branch and never found the deer.
You may find him in the morning, unfortunately this movie will play over and over in your mind for a while.

Yah, you work so hard for the opportunity snd then you hurry the shot. I just have to be better. I will be better next time, but I’m done with the bow for the year. That just takes all the want out of me. Here is a pic of the 7 we found. It was a good deer and yes I believe it was tripping the dog up. Searched for over 6 hours today and covered almost all available areas within a mile. Grid searched, never had good blood really beyond the arrow

I was in your shoes on the 6th man! It sucks hardcore!! We searched every square inch of property i was able to, with no luck. Unfortunately I was not able to get a dog to help, but very busy time of year for those few guys that choose to track over hunt. Takes a lot to get back out there but we have no choice! The next few days are when the BIG boys are their feet big time searching for their next does! As wierd as it sounds i wish I was going to work in the morning with my bow tag wrapped around the deer i shot's rack,, but instead I will be in a tree swaying and freezing on another all day sit , but this is what we wait for all year! If this hasn't happened to everyone, well they just plain out haven't been doing this hard and long enough!
