Exactly what I’m thinking. He lost a ton of blood today and was very weak when we saw him in the ravine. That’s why I didnt Want to push it anymore. Hopefully I can Sneak in tomorrow morning and either find him dead or kill him in his bed. 

Good luck tomorrow! If you have extra help tracking and know the lay of the land at all ,maybe you could post up a watcher or two at a likely escape rt..

So I closed the weld shop at 4 today. Something in my gut was calling to me, and as a firm believer of doing what my gut say, I left for my ground blind.Its now  4:15 . I dont have long but its going to be kinda uncomfortable. just a tarp on cold wet ground , no chair. my  shop bibs and a dirty sweatshirt. Oh well. Things a starting to wind down, no deer sightings and im starting to think about winding things up for the evening, figured i got about ten minutes max. I look over to the left  as far as i could see and i see a deer. now im thinking right away its a doe.Well let me tell ya ,that thought quickly left my mind.Now I passed and a small six point yesterday at 80 yards in an open field. I wasnt about to do that again. so i pull up my trusty smoke pole and size him up. He is just standing there looking around eating on soybeans. plenty of time to put a good shot on him. So thats what I did. I didnt see him run but I heard crashing, so I figured he split. Nope. about sixty yards.I walked over to where I shot and im looking around for hair or blood,I dont see anything. Im starting to panic instantly.then I see it . the  Soybean Buck. Not much of a blood trail when you drop them on the spot.its more like a blood puddle. So thats three deer in two days. I think the butcher shop is about to be open for business. I called the guy I left at work. he said but you havent even been gone an hour. I smiled.

Last update for the night. I got Permission from the landowner to continue the track. He has a large property and allows no hunting, so my buck should be safe from people in there. We pushed him a long way today and after watching him in the ravine, I really Think he’s gonna lay up and die if we leave him be. It’s gonna be a sleepless night, but I’ll be back after him in the morning. 

You should def find him even if he isnt dead with that injury he will def stiffen up and you will catch up to him quickly. Blood in the snow is so deceiving as a little bit will spread like paint. But if he is falling and bleeding along you'll be on him right away.  Good luck and would be great to track down the first buck on the new property!

If he hasnt stopped bleeding by now the he's not gonna.  I bet he's expired.  Sounds like you have a good chance of recovery.  Good luck!

Good luck finding him John. Thankfully, it's plenty cold enough to preserve the meat. Hope those damned coyotes don't eat much!

Is anyone down in 8x / Hornell area this week? In changing locations from 8A and am curious about snow..

I live and hunt in 8x. (Work in hornell). Snow is around 10 to 12 inches and is starting to get really heavy/wet. We got probably another 2 inches or fresh stuff today.

Thanks Tracy. I have access to some property in the hills south of town off 36. That's an hour and a half drive for me on a good day though so wasn't sure what to expect before I show up on Thursday. Forecast just calls for cold.

Out back for a morning sir
Put my nephew up in the tower. He shot his first deer there a couple years back. It’s had some upgrades. I’m sure he will like the buddy heater! Hope he sees something. I’m down in the far stand. Snow is still noisy as all heck. It’s basically a sitting game till this crunch leaves which may be April lol

Back at for more in 3g. Kicked up a doe / button on walk back yesterday. Played cat and mouse for a bit as I tried to figure if she was a he. Eventually whatever it was scooted out of dodge.

Posted on a rock wall this am. Saw some movement ways out while still dark and a headlamp on neighboring property. Hopefully something gets pushed to my side of the property line and not vice versa.

35°, drizzling and light west wind. Good luck all.

      Hello,
      I am in the process of purchasing my first rifle to go hunting deer for the first time.  However, I have received contradicting information regarding the types of rifles that are legal.  Based on what I have read, it appears that I am able to use a bolt-action rifle with a pistol grip and a detachable magazine which holds 10 rounds.  However, I have been told that this is not the case. I can't seem to find where this is stated.  Can any one here provide me with some insight into this? I'd really appreciate it.
      Thanks in Advanced,
      Alfredo

      4.Get neccessary equipment for processing my own deer in the garage(needs a good cleanin before opening day!!)
      5.See the smile on Jay's(turkeyfeathers) face with his first bow harvest!!!!
      6.Be blessed and thankful to be able to spend time in the great outdoors.cherish every moment of the woods coming alive at day break(g/f doesnt understand it!!!)<<but im ok with that
