Re: day 2...12/27/14
Hit one yesterday right at dusk. She dropped, rolled around some, then got up and took off. Good solid blood trail, even on the leaves. Found some lung material. Went back this morning, followed the trail for over 1/2 mile. Blood was heavy in places, nothing in others. Gave up after two hours of tracking. There was a twig cut in half by the ball right in front of the deer, so I think it deflected the ball into the very back of the lungs. The deer went a long way and climbed several very steep hills, so whether it expired or not is a mystery to me.
A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!
