Default My buddy lost one

He shot a little buck at dark last night. He missed the first shot and he got the second arrow out and droped his quiver. He thought "Well, I may as well not even nock this one, he is long gone."
But that little buck just stood there. He shot and it was a quartering toward shot that entered in where the neck meets the body at the base of the neck. The buck high kicked and ran about 30yds and nearly went down but caught himself and took off. He said it was the loudest hit he ever heard. Said it sounded like someone took a hammer and smacked a chunk of wood. We went to his house to make some phone calls and to tell people that we were gonna be late getting home. We found great blood, HUGE pools of blood all along a trail. He hit the creek and up the embankment on the other side and there was blood EVERYWHERE. We found the arrow at the field edge ajoining the creek and it was covered from broadhead to nock with bright red blood. We trailed him through the bean field, ziggin and zaggin the whole time. Blood slowed down from there and then on a small trail through the beans we followed tracks and found small drops of blood. The last drop was 400yds at the least away from the stand. We quit looking cause I had school and he had work.

He got home and got his brother-in-law to go help him and they checked every thicket and water hole in 300yds and still never found that buck. He feels like $#!%. That is only the second deer he lost in 17 years of hunting. THATS LONGER THAN IVE BEEN ALIVE! In my opinion, he did all he could to recover that buck, he has nothing to be ashamed of or feel bad about. Am I wrong here? All of the blood he thought the deer would be like under 100yds away and then we were over 400yds away and still no deer. Man what a disapointed, discouraged bow hunter<img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle> Sad sight<img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>
