A quick prayer for those that do for either good blood or a clean arrow would be awesome.

He is a stallion going to push 145 as a massive 8 with split 2s. He was with a scorching hot doe. Only shot I had was quartering at 46. I am not sure about the shot, I feel good about it but I didn't have the reaction I wanted and didn't immediately find arrow or blood so I backed out. He kind of hunched and scurried away which I know normally means liver gut. Will keep you updated tomorrow hopefully with pics of a monster tn deer.

I'm very comfortable and killed many deer at 60. Not saying 46 is a chip cause its not but well within my effective range

Good luck finding him. As I learned with my buck, always check water sources if you run out of blood.

Good luck, and congrats.

As catman529 posted, pay particular attention to creeks and small streams. Every time this has happened to me, they were found next to a water source of some kind.

I'm on blood for around 50 yards until he hit an enormous broom sedge field. I just got some lunch and am starting a huge grid search momentarily.

Question.. He is likely still wearing my arrow but I have drops of dark red blood. Liver or muscle?

Liver blood is dark red but a good liver shot usually bleeds real good unless there's no exit and the arrows still in him.

Can't really say since he was shot yesterday. Blood darkens when it dries.

Could be either as its many hours old now. Dont be discouraged with limited blood however, as if theres no exit hole and the arrow is still in the likely high entry (treestand shot) he may bleed mainly internally, atleast for a while. Good luck again.

Any update? Scour that broom sedge, I know what it's like. Not fun really. See if he found water because that's what mine did. 450 yards worth of broom sedge, dead forbs and briar thickets and he still made it to water.

I'm sick about it. But I looked for 8 hours yesterday with only a small blood trail leading out to a crp type field to show for it. I walked all trails and grid searched for hours. First time in many years I have lost one. I will be looking for months to come but obviously meat and cape are lost. I'm putting all trail cameras on this place to see if he is still kicking.

Thanks for the prayers sent and thoughts from tndeer. Hopefully I can find him eventually and honor him with a euro mount and this board will be the first I share it with. Good Luck boys
