Follow existing deer trails from last loos - I've seen deer tend to stick to their travel routes, ad often head for water or real thick cover. Don't just look on the ground for blood, if the deer stopped bleeding there will still be some blood on the fur by the wound, and any plant or stick or sapling the deer rubs against will leave a streak of blood. Don't give up, you may have a dead deer nearby.

May be a late post but. Get to the last spot of blood. Stand there and look around. Look for the thickest cover and down hill. That's where it will be heading. I'd bet lunch on it. From what you said. A lot of blood but little bubbles. I'd bet he's single lunged. I've had tgat happen before. But almost always. They will head for the thickest cover they can find. I literally had to crawl on my hands and knees to find one one time. Don't give up. He's dead. Just gotta be persistent.

I looked and went all over and cannot find any more blood. I went up/down and through some stuff I could hardly get through but still no luck. I wished I could have found her because I only have two deer on camera, I shoot one and cant find it. I have a friend with a dog but said I would be good til 7 tonight, shot her at 10 or so this morning. I think if she is dead the meat would be spoiled. I still wish I could find her because it was my first ever deer and was looking forward to the meat.

I hate that for you DR. Losing the first one is super tough. \:\( Keep you head up and either go back and look more... or go hunt!

Don't get discouraged as this really is one part of bow hunting.

Sorry to hear that. It's tough to lose one let alone the first one. But don't let it keep you down. Get back on stand and git'er done again.

Thanks everyone, its a lost cause. He brought the dog up and it marked its territory all over the trails. I am debating giving it a rest for a week due to this is the only location I have to hunt, other than driving to craborchard (1.5 hr drive). I don't think other than the one shot they have been pressured. They haven't located me nor have I been pointed out by other deer. I just don't know because of the blood if they will avoid the area.
