I don't care if your Robinhood or Legolas from LOTR but find it completely asinine to shoot doe and immediately trailing buck and have no idea of status of first shot. Two blood trails spells disaster . They are first time archery hunters to boot. A good shot or not doesn't matter.   Never heard if initial doe recovered but that buck supposedly shot twice now. He's not a pin cushion ! 
I'm going to play devil's advocate here and bear in mind I'm not trying to derail or personally assault anyone. I would shoot 2 deer in one sit, and I have. I find it a bit asinine for you to stand on your high horse after only starting bowhunting recently yourself. Everyone makes mistakes, you too are going to lose deer in your career and does it really matter if it was a week apart or the same sit? No. I've lost a deer before I thought was dead and I've found deer I never thought I would. It's a shame there wasn't a better outcome but it's hunting. I'd be willing to bet 90% of hunters on this site would shoot a doe then shoot a trailing buck if the opportunity presented itself, without knowing the first shot was "perfect." To keep criticizing the young hunters or their elder isn't helping anything but throwing unnecessary shame. End of rant.

If its a marginal hit, dont shoot another deer. And when youve done this long enough you know a marginal hit when it happens. Jays point is that one blood trail can be tough enough

Shot two deer one time. Followed the first blood trail and found the deer. Went back, followed the second blood trail and found the deer. Wasn’t very confusing.

The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!"

I agree. Ive shot two deer in one sit many times, but only when I knew the first shot was good. Ive passed deer when im not sure of the first shot

I'd say the high horse is actually a concern about starting young hunters on the right path. I'd venture to say that TF has passed on and will pass on opportunities that are marginal, and he's as young a bowhunter as the kids shooting trailing bucks.

Chris, if you were mentoring a young hunter, would you really have him send a second arrow on that deer ?

Stop making it out to be any more than a concern about mentoring the young hunters and trying to set them up for success today and in the future.

It's apparent who's on the high horse.

At 7 am this morning I was texting one of my buddys I look up and have a doe staring at me at 16 yards the crossbow is on the hanger she licks the air and bounds away. After a few more hrs of no action I text the wife and ask if she wants to meet for lunch. I was gonna for a latke over an hr check the cam when I get back and 20 min after I left I had a doe at the base of the tree ho figure lol

I’m not into starting or perpetuating arguments and I don’t have to defend anyone’s choice to take a shot or pass. We can all make our own decisions on that. Discussing our own opinions and thoughts is a part of the hunting fraternity but name-calling is unnecessary. Jumping to conclusions and condemnations doesn’t benefit anyone. 
Hope all are successful in their hunt exactly the way that they want to be. Let’s get’r done!

If there were any adult with the youth and could clearly see the first deer wasn't hit very well then I hope they would restrain them from shooting again, yes. But let's not forget who we're talking about, youth's. TF can pass on whatever he likes, so can everyone else. He wasn't there to know what actually happened or what was going through the kids head. If he had killed both of those deer then everyone would be congratulating him without a word being said about shooting 2 deer. I'm on my high horse? For defending a youth and his mentor that I don't even know?? I'm saying give the kid a break. He messed up, we all have. Learn from it and move forward. Let me ask you.... You shoot a doe, shot looked alright but you just aren't sure. Minutes later the biggest buck you've ever seen comes by, do you shoot? I already know the answer and so does everyone else. So where does TF logic apply here? After all it most likely was the largest buck the kid has had an opportunity at...?

I'm not going to clog up a good thread with this. If someone wants to start a new one I'll continue. But quite honestly, there's a clique on here who will agree with each other no matter what. To the guys out hunting tonight, good luck!

i'm not in this fight one way or the other but there is the problem if the bigger the rack makes you choose to shoot different than the smallest scrawny doe that you would shoot. If its not a good enough to shoot one it shouldn't be to shoot the other. Just my .02$

Had it happen to me the same way too many times. In the second pic looks like she was looking up in the trees for you.

I shot two deer with the bow and both fell in sight, but the first time I shot two deer in one sit with the bow,  the damn things took the same trail, I tracked the first one That’s was a pass through and wound up at the second deer with my arrow still in it. I found them both eventually and the blood continued from where the first one fell.

How would 2 trails be that difficult? I doubled once with gun. 2 different runs. Even if it wasn’t they’d either split or one would stop and you’d gut and then keep tracking
