I shot a good buck this morning and found good blood. After tracking him for 50 yards I went back to the truck and waited an hour. I was using a 300 wby so the deer shouldnt have went 5 yards. went back and found more blood but this time with lots of bone busted up. still no deer after 400 yards. Were in the world could i have hit that deer and can he be found?

Busted bone plus running 400 yards after been hit with a high powered rifle sounds like a leg shot to me, most likely non-fatal, at least in the near term. Best of luck in your quest to find him.

Maybe you took out the bottom of the shoulder blade, had this happen before. I was going to offer my beagle to help track him, but I am in Blount County right now

If you still don't find him, send me a PM and maybe I can meet up with you. I will be hunting Dandridge this afternoon and tomorrow and can easily zip up the interstate to meet you.

Leg shot.

I doubt shoulder blade given you were shooting a 300 Weatherby... it should have still done enough damage at impact to cause severe trauma.

Slim....Unless you track him and finish him off. Now he is going to the safest place he knows, to either bed and die or bed and recover.

Go to the nastiest thickest place on the property and look there, if there is a place like that near water even better.

Did you run out of blood after 400 yards? I think that I would still be looking. It sounds like a leg hit, but you never know.

10-4. Good luck. I think that I would take up the offer for the beagle though.

Leg would be my guess. Backing out and waiting is the mistake. Leg shots can be recoverable but youhave to keep them moving. Running is even better. If it is a high leg, better chances that a low one. By letting im sit, chances are slim.

Go with either the beagle or Catman.
