    I did not end up kicking him up again. However if he was still alive first thing this morning then he was jumped by a guy that had his son out for youth day. The owner of the property gave me permission to track knowing that his friend was out there with his kid. We passed each other and I apologized for ruining his hunt. He told me that he saw the blood trail. I said okay thanks and we carried on. The dog tracker, the dog and myself searched about 200-300 yards in each direction of the last blood and couldn’t find any other sign. My watch has GPS and it calculated that I walked 4.2 miles from the time I started tracking him from where I jumped him last night. From the shot spot to last blood was 2.1 miles but with all the extra tracking I doubled that making sure to look in all places I thought he could possibly have went. I slipped and fell really hard in a brook at one point. Ended up hurting my knee, hip, shoulder and tweaked a muscle in my neck. That deer is one resilient bastard. It’s not the outcome I wanted and it’s gunna bother me for a while but I know I gave it my all.

    Yeah I definitely learned my lesson this time around. This is definitely going to bother me for a while but I know I put a lot of effort into looking for him.

    Here’s the last blood we found. Absolutely no more blood in the area. About 50 yards from where we had the last blood there was a guy hunting this morning with his son for youth day. Unfortunately I ended up ruining his hunt which I felt terrible about but I have gotten permission from the landowner two track. The blood stopped and we could no longer get any trails. The only good thing that came out of this today is that I ended up talking to one of the landowners and he offered to let me hunt his property. So I now have another small peace to myself. All he asks is for a couple pounds of meat per deer I shoot but he definitely wants me to take a few dear off his property.

    Well guys we’ve tracked a mile from the shot area. Found more blood 300 yards from the last bed. Just had to deal with the cops. Back to tracking

    Just left my house I have an hour drive. The same dog tracker from last night was very adamant about meeting me out here this morning to find this deer. I will be meeting with her at 7 AM. I’ll keep you guys posted.

    Yeah I was thinking I’ll walk ahead of the dog this time just in case. When we jumped him I heard a bunch of branches breaking after a couple of minutes. Could of been him walking away or hopefully he crashed. There’s definitely coyote in the area so that was a concern. With the amount of blood loss he’s had and how cold it’ll be tonight I doubt he will make it through the night. Hard to tell. The tracker and I agree with what others have said and we think I got liver. We will see what the morning brings. I doubt he’ll be far at this point being that he bed down 3 times within 125 yards and blood in each bed. He’s hurt bad just needs the time to expire.

    So I had a dog tracker meet me at 6:30. We tracked the deer for close to a half mile. Within the last 125 yards the deer bedded down three times. We ended up jumping him with him Bed down 20 yards from us. We backed out and are going to go back in the morning.

    Yes the entrance was on his right side. There’s noticeably more blood coming from his right side but there’s also blood coming from his left which I believe to be from the inside of the far shoulder/leg hence why my bolt broke in half and I have not recovered the second half (broadhead half) because I think it’s stuck in the opposite leg.

    Here’s a quick video I tookof the blood leading up to where he was laying down. I’m going to go back at dark and trac. 25FE3416-334E-4FDF-A47D-8287628E6DE8.MOV

    Shot was 20 yards from my knee. He was quartering awaypretty hard. I honestly think I entered behind the rib cage, hit liver and 1 lung and ended up in the opposite shoulder.
