I was sitting there watching a smaller buck and another deer im not sure what was, when ol big boy ran straight down the hill out of no were and actually stopped in my scope. I pulled the hammer back on my ol 30.30 he was facing me i so i put the cross hairs right in the center of his neck, pulled the trigger and he warped the ground. He then got up on his front legs went a few feet and rolled to the bottom of the hill and he went up the other side on the edge not straight up. Small amounts of blood TONS of hair which i know is not a real good sign. Found drips and drops of bloods for roughly 150-200yds. ANY IDEAS!!!

My guess is you just grazed him and he's fine.

put your lab on a leash and put him on the trail again

Did you let the buck lay before sending the dog?

I bet your dog found him so I'd see if you could get your dog to lead you to him. Good luck
