Yes, it is. After the shot I didn't think he would go 50 yards. Instead I spend all night looking for him and he has simply disappeared![:@]

Well, I honestly don't think anyone will believe it because I can hardly believe what happened. 15 yard broadside shot. Arrow hit exactly where I was aiming, which admittedly may have been a little low for the shot angle. However, the entrance hole was 4" or so above the sternum and probably 2-3" back off of the crease of the shoulder. Hit him with a Rage 2-blade, which when I recovered the arrow was open. The arrow was completely soaked with blood, zero fat on it. The blood trail was solid to the point that I could follow it at a walk and I am colorblind. We followed it out of the area, across the beaan field, and at the far side of the small strip on the other side of the bean field he simply quit bleeding. This was 15 feet from a puddle of blood that would make you sick if you were sqeamish! I am telling you he absolutely has to be dead and there is just nothing to go on. I walked the entire field that he virtually had to go into and there is nothing. I don't know what else to do but try a dog at this point.

Oh I wish I could remember the site Rob/Pa had where you can locate a
tracker in your area. I am going to do some digging around here and
see what I can come up with.

Peak, I looked there and everyone is literally from the exact opposite end of the state. They all live in the far NE part of the state.

I am at an absolute loss. I just can't belive he went so far!

Do a wide circle to the right from the last place you seen blood to where you took the shot. (Some dang reason they seem to run to the right on me when this happens.)300-400 yards out.
Any water to the right by chance?
Mature bucks do amazing things and I am assuming it was one.

Yes, there is a creek that I figured he was going to. I walked it this morning with no luck. I am just waiting now for my dad to get down from his morning hunt and then I will be back out there. I might try one of my dogs just in case, but they haven't been very good in the past.
