Re: A miss or wounded deer?
All of the deer I have shot, each 1 up ontil Saturday had tucked thier tails after the shot and I searched high and low till I found them if there was no blood..
The 1 on Saturday, at the shot, took off on a FAST Run, Faster then I have ever seen a deer run after being shot at...it's tail was straight up in the air like a deer does when it is scared from the area it is in....
I walked over to were she had crossed the tractor trail...saw no blood, my buddy then shot at the second doe I saw... I walked over to him, found the blood trail and his doe and then told him to come help me make sure I had missed...
When we walked back to were the doe I shot at, had crossed the Trator Trail...he and I both started looking, took us maybe 3 minutes to find blood on the other side of the tractor trail were I had not looked....
Always, look around, you did the right thing by getting your Dad involved.... my Buddies and I always use each other to help make sure it was a clean miss or a hit that did not leave blood till a few yards from the spot of the shot!
