Maybe a liver hit...I'm not sure. Sounds like you may have got him. I know you said it rained but maybe he left some blood on the trees or ruffled up the leaves which may help you out.

Good luck and let us know one way or the other!

good luck, I'm in the same situation, I shot one with the xbow today, watched him stumble up the hill with my arrow in him. it got dark and I couldn't find him so I'm going out first thing in the morning to look. I know the feeling you have, it really has made me have a sick feeling in my gut tonight.

I had a similar issue a few years back some may remember. I shot a possible county possibly state record buck, complete pass through. started tracking and then it stated to pour. Went back out that nite in the rain with a game finder, didnt help much, went back the next morning and 2 days after that. we searched everywhere foot by foot. No sign of the deer. Rumor has it, hes still runnning around. I have yet to see him since the shot.I was sick to my stomach for acouple weeks, and still think he might show up again in the same spot and give me that second chance thatI so deserve for not giving up on him.

If you contact the game commission you may be able to use dogs to recover your deer. Even if you do not have a hunting dog, if you can put the dog in the woods and on the trail of blood, that dog will find that deer. Ive done it before. Good luck do not give up. With all the blood you found it is likely that deer is dead, start griding, and get all your buddies to help.

Using dogs for tracking is legal in Ohio. Good idea.
