"oh well"

Not the right answer!

You need a dictionary!

Just had the same problem with not much blood and no dog, found the deer keep looking thats such a waste if you dont give it your all. I didnt stop trying last night then got lost, get back to the blood and bring some friends. Make sure to search in the daylight hours. Just a personal experience.

OH WELL, not a very good attitude for a hunter. You have to give it your best effort possible to recover an animal. Give as much after the shot as you do before the shot.
