Somebody had asked that I re-post this story because they had just lost a buck they thought should have died.

Last year, I shot this doe with the bow. There was very little blood, and I never found the arrow. I looked and looked to no avail. I thought it was a good shot but didn't know for sure until I got these trail camera photos.

I saw this girl later during rifle season. I almost shot her just to do an autopsy and find out why in the world she didn't die. But I was askeered it might tick her off, and she might climb up my tree and murder me!


ENTRANCE WOUND







EXIT WOUND







A COUPLE WEEKS LATER - HEALING UP PRETTY WELL







THESE PHOTOS ARE FROM A COUPLE MONTHS AGO, A LITTLE MORE THAN A YEAR AFTER THE INITIAL SHOT. THIS GIRL IS COMPLETELY HEALED.

BOO!

As always, good stuff Gil and definitely something 99% of all hunters can learn from. Thanks for sharing.

I was wondering about that deer this year. I bet you got one lung and she somehow survived it.
