Default tonights bowkill after long night of tracking

Little bit of ground shrinkage but a good ending to a very long evening of tracking/searching. Hope the picture works(first post from a cell phone)

thanks guys.

He only went about 200 yards give or take but I shot him quartering and caught some gut on the exit. Some intestine came through the hole and plugged him up. Not one drop of blood past 30 yards so it was hours of walking up and down a deep hollow. My buddy found him at about midnight.

It was stressful. I had the pass through at about 7 yards and I just couldn't believe he wasn't bleeding but it was obvious why when we found him.

Funny story. He ran right under me after I shot him and when I got down I noticed the ground was all wet under my stand. I started to reach out to put my finger in it and smell it and I remembered I took a pee right before I came down. I was about a split second from sniffing around in my own pee.

I had some great help. I even had a guy get out of bed about midnight when we found him to come help drag him up out of the very bottom of the hollow......and he had to get up at 4AM to go duck hunting.

Good friends are a very valuable asset I reckon.
