harvey lee Posted September 18, 2012 Share Posted September 18, 2012 Went out to the stand at 4:30 and at 4:45 a 8 or 10 pter came strolling by. Took a shot and hit a small branch but stuck the arrow in the buck. Shot was a bit high but at a steep angle as the buck was inly 14 yards from me and I was 20ft up in the tree.Waited 30 minutes and got down to see what I had for blood. 2 yards from where the deer was shot, there was good blood on the ground and the corn leaves as it was traveling between the woods and the corn. Followed that for 40 yards and then through a small swamp with grass about knee high but could still find blood. After aboot 50 yards deer took a left into the thick woulds with the arrow still in the deer.I backed out to let the deer die and went to the truck and called my son and his buddy to come out and help me find it and drag it out of the woods.Went back to the last blood at the edge of the woods again and into the woods 30 yards, we found the arrow or what was left of it.Deer is now bleeding hard so we went another 40-50 yards and back to the corn field only this time, he went into the corn. He had stopped 4-5 times the last 80 yards or so as we could see more blood in some of the spots. Went into the corn and jumped the buck. he crashed about 30 ft or so stumbling in the corn and went down again.We decided to not push it any longer and wait till morning. Hopefully the yotes do not get it is my only concern as the nightime temps will keep it ok after it is dead. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
