Congrats on the find, where did you hit her? Just curious with her getting back up.
The arrow went through the front of the thigh, angled up and entered the abdomen just in front of the udder and exited midway up the far side just behind the ribs. I have no idea how that could have happened with a downward shot angle. She was about 35 yards away so I didn't see whether she jumped the string or whether the arrow was deflected, or whether I just made a crappy shot.


Whatever the case may be, congrats on finding her before the coyotes and everything else that would love a dead doe!

Now that I think about it, the arrow was stuck in the ground at an angle that would have pointed back toward my stand. She was on the alert because another doe was blowing at me so maybe she somehow kicked her back legs up and got her body into an odd angle at the sound of the shot.

Im glad you didnt give up even if it ment coming vack the next day for a doe. I know alot of people that wudnt have come back and thats a reason I dont hunt with them. Thats our responsability as soon as that arrow/bullet leaves us. I will follow a yearling from here to BFE if I shot it. Congrats to you hope many more are in your frying pan before years end.
