I am pretty sure I just not meant to get a deer this season.   Sat in stand 2 minutes doe comes in from field behind me.  Walks directly under me and I let her get about 6 yards . Pull trigger....click...wtf....cycle bolt a shell comes out and she is gone.   Miss fire. Just can't believe this season. 

That happened to me with the buck I shot opening day. Same exact thing, pull trigger, WTF, cycle action, he starts to run but I yelled and he stopped. May I ask what ammo you are using? Mine was a Remington Corelok in .308

Cynthia, if you found bone fragments, I'm 99% sure it was a leg hit. Definitely bullet could have gone to chest cavity before or after taking out the leg. Wish I felt a bit better, I would come down to help with a dog.

Don't give up. That sounds like a dead deer. Sending luck. And thanks to Bill for being a great stand up guy, and hunter\sportsman.

Sorry Cynthiafu but you did all you could. It happens to everyone and if it hasn't it will. That sick feeling just shows how much respect you have for the animals you pursue.

That stinks Cynthiafu sorry to hear you haven't been able to find her. That's a hell of a track record you have first one in 30 years lost that's awesome. You gave it a GREAT effort you and Bill.

Stayed on stand until 9:00, then still hunted/scouted until 10:00, before tapping out. Nadda… Giving the clothes a fresh wash, grabbing lunch, then heading back out ~2:00.

It truly does, but you gave it a great effort.  Also impressive that @blackbeltbill was in on the search both last night and this morning.   Both things are a sign of a true sportsman!

Cynthia, I just had this happen opening day.  I saw a doe crashing through the woods with a buck with a bummed leg from an arrow.  I tried to put her down.  I shot the buck first of course and then changed gears to take her as well knowing she was injured.  After I tagged my buck.  I looked over two hours for her up and down mountains, replaying the shots and the entire 5 mins of craziness.  No blood to follow but I knew she was hit and hit bad because of the way she acted.  I called friends and even had my daughter out with me the next day to grid search the entire area.  I put about 6 to 8 hours into the search.  Looked in brush, crawled on my knees through spots I never thought I could get out of.  The other day (3 days later)after it snowed, I walked around my property to look for scraps, rubs, and other deer activity for Muzzle season.  It was over 2 miles away from where I shot her.  The doe with a bum leg was under a log in a stream.  If I didn't almost step on her, I would have never seen her.  I was upset, disappointed and asked myself what else I could have done.  I think some would have given up after the 2 hrs and the next day.  Don't be hard on yourself, you are doing all the right things. Like someone mentioned in this thread before, you will lose one throughout your time hunting and IT SUCKS, but knowing you did everything to find her is all you can do.

You gave it a good effort. It does happen, but it looks like you had an impressive streak! Good luck today, get some redemption.

Make it happen. Even if you see nothing, still better than work.

Ballz.  Heard foot steps off my left shoulder.   25 yards to Then 20 in super thick stuff.  All I could see is a foot , nose and throat patch. Deer stood there for 7-10 minutes not moving. Still couldn’t make out what it was. Rifle hanging in tree. I slowly grab .44 out of chest rig. Wind  blowing perfect. Cmon , step out and let me see what you are. Takes one step sideways and jumps , no tail up. Huge body and big rack.  No shot.  I grunted but he’s gone. Dang it. Here’s pic of crap he was in.

See any state troopers, black helicopters or a certain 17 year old white male?
