I am near dulles airport.

Mitch -

This is only my second deer that didn't drop in its tracks or drop where I could see it from the stand. I had a doe last week (we have an earn a buck program in my county) that ended in a long track job. Other than these two deer, they normally drop dead when I use my rifle. One that I shot with a pistol went about 20 yards.

If I didn't have my friend help me, I don't know that I would have found the blood trail. We would have found the deer eventually because he was so close, but I didn't want to walk in the thick stuff and disturb the beds there unless I was sure I had hit something.
