It's a big secret exactly where he was hunting. He's got exclusive rights to some great ground around here. My only hope is that the next time I go help farm, his Dad will tell me that he went back and found it later. Maybe he just didn't want anyone else stompin' around "his" woods.
I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now.

!2 yrd broadside was most likely a high hit. Deer might be dead, good chance it's not, not within a hundred yards anyways. If he hit the shoulder he hit it high and a g5 isn't the kind of head that slices, more like punches a hole, thus no blood.

Tell the guy to stand as far away from his target as he was from that deer and see were the arrow impacts. I missed a deer earlier this year and after doing the same thing I know why. Changed my sights and killed the next 2 who were also close.

You guys need either a good tracking dog or find someone who has one. Used my untrained hound dog on the last one, simply amazing. I pity the creature that thinks it can eluded that dog. Even with all kinds of critters to distract him, he was full speed ahead with only putting his nose down every so often. I already knew most of the story before getting him, just didn't know the last part. Dog did in five minutes what took me an hour.

A deer of that caliber isn't going down easily. Got a be some of the toughest animals on the planet at taking a hit and surviving.

Does sound like he could've put in a better effort.

Very well said. Couldn't agree more Rob. There are a few "hunters" out there that don't realize the responsibilty they take when drawing a bow back on a live animal. This post is a classic example of a slob hunter.

When i shot the young doe in the leg she bedded down and igot downto get closer to get a closer shot. She was to far and behind a tree so no shot from the stand. i got within 40 yards and moved around to get a side shot. She gets up runs away. I followed her but she just keep running. I figured If i keep going I would push her till she ran off and died from running with awhole in her leg. I knew i would not catch her.I stopped and felt bad about stopping so soon. But dam get down look at the arrow and give up. heck i missed one last week the arrow was clean i still walked the same trail to make sure. I saw the deer with no blood i knew i missed but i made sure. SOunds like the deer is dead and he should find it.If i where you and knew where he was i would find it myself.

There is no debate here. He shouldn't be allowed to hunt. If he refuses to go and find that deer and you know where he hunts go get that deer. I'd go with you if I could. The deer, and our reputation as hunters, deserve better.
