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.


It will be fine. The blood trail will not scare the deer. I have killed deer two days in row in the same spot. The gut pile or disturbance of the area sometimes doesn't matter.

Hunt and have fun...... \:\)

Sorry it didn't work out right for you this time Ben, but these things do happen when bowhunting. Don't let it get you down too much, and hit it again as soon as you can. From your texts, it sounded like you would find her within 100 yds for sure, but there's that odd instance sometimes when they zig or zag and throw us off the trail. It'll happen for you, just don't get discouraged and remember you're definitely not the lone ranger when it comes to losing a shot deer like this. ;\)

Congrats on your first shot deer. But I feel your pain on the lost deer. That has to suck being the first deer but just remember that there are TONS more deer out there.

Sorry; I understand the feeling, 100%. Disheartening, but learn what you can from it, and you will be a little better hunter tomorrow. Wish I could have been there to help.

Thanks guys, I came home and wife said that she didn't want me moping around the house. She washed my cloths and hung them out, told me be up at 5:30 and try again. I had a friend drop off some rocket sidewinder 1 1/2" broad heads mechanical. He said to double band them and if it makes contact I would see blood forever. I don't know if he knows I shoot a titan crossbow and I am worried that it might not open or open in flight. Then again he could have been messing with me. My wife joined on here and is awaiting approval, Mrs Deer Repellent lol. I told her that everyone is supportive and she said that since she is hunting next year she needed to join and start educating her husband lol.
