Way to stick with it and find your trophy at the end of the trail.

You mean somebody did actually LEARN something from what they read on here. Congrats you did the right thing and it worked out.

Good deal. The liver is deadly but it just takes a little longer tracking job and a little more time for it all to work. You done good.

Congratulation's man on getting your doe, you did everything perfect. Even If you would of waited till morning there wouldn't of been a problem with that either. Congrats once again!

Great job Littlechief.

I have respect to anyone who loses a trail but still presses forward to find the deer. Nice job.

Do you really think so? This is what I wasn't sure about, so I decided to press on. I assumed that a deer shot at 6:45 pmand left to lay overnight when the low temp was going to be 56 degrees wouldn't have been any good in the morning.
