[mention=9835]TheHornHunter[/mention] have you tried deer search? They might be able to get you on that deer in spite of the rain..


Nope. The people’s whose property the deer went on to are fairly anti hunting and very protective of their land. I’ve built a good relationship with them and they let me retrieve deer when I need to but they would be pissed if I brought someone on they didn’t know

On a small ridgetop since 7am. Foggy and dripping. Oh and that white stuff by the log IS NOT snow. Never fails. Good luck out there today!!1e0889d513b832ef56383d09993b0741.jpg&key=6c5a37bde8baeb6c0db51d4504ab6a9c6ad438cb9d519ff4c570eb1ad23ce0e4

A piece of bone indicates a leg hit most all of the time. Question is, if it passed through some part of the deer to break the offside leg? If so, the deer could be dead within a couple hundred yards from where you found the bone. Likely in the thickest cover available. And will likely not survive.
If just the leg was hit, it could survive, but won't move very far for awhile. Even if bumped. Sometimes with a leg hit, if you can get them up and moving, the blood will start to flow again. Even after 24 hours.
I hope you find him, or at least see him again.
Good luck.


Thanks for the input. The leg opposite to me when I shot looked broken after the shot. He ran in front of me with that leg facing me so I got a good look at it. It’s possible I went under his cavity and only hit opposite leg but I would have expected to that to basically blow his leg off and to have way more carnage at the hit site. I only found two small fragments and little hair or blood initially. Plus I think that would have knocked him to the ground initially. I think I went through the cavity and out the opposite leg but either high or low. He was quartering away pretty good. I found one spot on the blood trail where I had two pretty good sized blood pools about a foot apart and slightly offset. I figured he stood for a little with two holes leaking

Still hunted for 3 hours today, saw a few does that I chose not to shoot. Went onto the neighbors as he gave me permission as he is done for the season. Saw a ton of sign at the middle and bottom of his ridge. I’m going to ask him if he would care if I put a ladder stand there next year. He is 75 his house is at the top of the mountain and he only hunts the very top close to his house. He doesn’t bow hunt so I think I’m going to ask if I can put it there and only hunt it during bow

Boot fail.. the creek is flooded so I had to Wade through higher water than I anticipated. Not sure if it went over the top, or through the boots, but I took on water. Tried to load a video of me pouring the water out of my boots but it wouldn't load. Hope my buddy gets one. I put him in the best stand for these conditions.

Little snow this morning up here. 36 and wind picking up. On another small ridge on the edge of the pines. They don't have a fighting chance today if they walk by. 3f54673994ff0b18c31a6522a6a17196.jpg

I’m truly impressed with the weather report.  Forecast is for west wind.  When I checked before going out, it said west winds, but the windicator arrow was pointed north.  So I setup in a spot for W and N winds.

 

The wind had been at my back all morning.
