Default Found my Doe from last evening

I had a complete pass thru on a doe last evening. Bright red blood soaked arrow. No Blood trail at all from what we saw last night. Had a good visual on the way she ran. We looked with a spot light and decided to come back this morning at first light. I came home all the way back to De and will return this morning. Had to call out at work, not good, don't like doing that but you gotta do what you gotta do. So another 160 miles to recover a doe that I hope we find and is ok with the temps, 60 degrees right now at 4:30am. Will let you all know how it turned out later today.


All right found her 200 yrds away. It was a tough track with the first drop and I mean drop of blood 100 yards away. Just a drop here and there and none the last 60 yrds. Just a good visual marking after the shot was the cause of finding that first drop.Took me and my partner DaveH an hour and a half but we got it done. Now the not so good news, foxes got to it over night and feasted on the rear end and hind quarter. The rest of the deer was fine. Weighed 95 lbs. Shot entered other side in the pic and got liver and exited the gut on the left side. All bleeding was internal. The blood on the arrow was bright red, thought a liver hit was dark red.



And the fox damage:

Just curious why you would say fox, I normally would say coyote around here. Did you see fox prints?

We don't have too many coyotes in Central MD.

I see em out west MD, and some on the Eastern Shore. But never in that area where he shot that fawn.
