Re: Whitetail Hunting: Trouble Recovering the buck

I finally got a chance to hunt Illinois for the first time a few weeks ago and I had a great 10pt quartering away @ 30 yards. I squeezed of the release and pulled my shot. Instead of hitting the buck in front of the rear quarter to angle the arrow into the chest cavity, I hit the buck right in the ham. I instantly knew I had wounded the greatest buck I'd ever seen and doubted I'd ever see him again. Well my story ends a little different. I happend to clip the femoral artery and claimed my buck a

Re: Whitetail Hunting: Trouble Recovering the buck

I had something similiar happen last year in MO. I shot a buck on the move at 25 yds. I tried 3 times to stop him, but was unable to. I just went with him and shot and hit him high dead center of the body. I let him go through the night and returned the following morning. I searched for two hrs before I found any blood in a bed. Then I followed the blood to the 2nd bed and the 3rd bed. Then I lost the blood where 3 trails fork. I went down each trail, but couldn't find any blood. Down t

Sooner or later it happens to every hunter. Never take a shot for granted. That said, I recommend using a dog when the trail goes dry but you're sure you killed the deer. It's not legal everywhere, but it works. A dog's nose is a heck of a lot better than a human eyeball for finding blood. Let them sniff the arrow so they know what they're after.

I feel your pain, literally. Lost both a buck and doe last month. Part of my problem was poor broadhead choice. The rest was me. It just makes you sick inside to know that you wounded an animal. Practice and better broadheads and hopefuly next hunt will be better.

Re: Whitetail Hunting: Trouble Recovering the buck

just happend to me on sat. I shoot a buck at 8am great shot he went down 40 yards away. A doe came in about 30 min later i rushed the shot on her as she was walking at 20 yrds. Got the buck out but could not enjoy it becouse i had a bad feeling about the doe. I looked the rest of the day no luck. A high and low in about 30min. Also this is the first deer that i have ever lost after 15 years of bow hunting.
