Well brother glad to hear you didn't give up. It is part of it. At least you had the opportunity to draw back on one and fire. Some folks may go the entire season and see only 1 or 2. Good luck out there today.

Catman we walked all over the water, but my friend says he thinks it was a gut shot? I know when I squeezed trigger it was on chest cavity middle way. Any way I couldn't get up this morning because I was up all night mad at myself for not finding it. I was really depressed about my first deer. So this morning I went to Lowes to get some locks and ran into a friend. I tell him and show the pictures of the blood. He told me with that much blood it is dead and lying where I have overlooked it. He said he has done this before and his dog will find them 90 percent of the time. I know the meat is bad but I am gong to give it one more try with his dog. If I do find her at least I will learn. The bad thing is, my father will probably kick me off the property if it is dead and wasted because of the anti hunter living in the rental above his garage. Next year I am going to find me a hunting lease with some good and minimal hunters. My friend with the dog isn't hunting because of his back. I told him if he wanted to shoot one I would come and drag it out. This way I can watch him track, gut, and process it.

also thanks everyone for your encouraging words of wisdom. I will get back at it in a little while. I should have prepared more and done more research on tracking.

You might want to carry a small spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide. Blood will fizz when sprayed with hydrogen peroxide. You can use it to find or confirm the next spot of blood.
