Default I learned a different technique

I learned from my first gun deer to drop it in the spot I shot it. I kept doing in the same way after that. One gun shot; instant dropping. One deer shot; deer down.

Got into archery again after some years away. Thought I needed to learn the blood drop searching.
Shot my first deer with a bow. Took out my compass, and took a directional reading on the last spot I saw the deer. First search was going to be right on the reading. Assumed it only went fifty yards.
Found the deer fifty or so yards away right in some thick cover; right on the last reading of the compass.

Had learned something gun hunting; learned to look for a whole deer and not some small blood drop.
