    Well I will start by saying I finally dropped the hammer on a trophy buck with my bow. Then the bad news I left him for 4 hrs then went tracking great blood but then it was gone, had a tracking dog get on him and lost him at a pond on property I figured he was in the bottom of it we continued to search with no luck. Now two weeks later I decided to go to a nice hardwood bottom this morning and found my deer on the way out. Haven’t had a chance to score him yet but I think he will go in the 160-170 range

    First time I had ever gotten sick when I lost a deer. Literally threw up. Was a bad day
