Tracker

To shoot this 10pt. buck I was leaning out as far as I dared, on my treestand platform. He was behind me, checking out a scrape and getting ready to leave. As I released I heard the loud "crack" of a shoulder hit and he was outta there. I waited for 30 min. and started tracking...very slowly.

Nothing but scuffed up leaves for 40 yards, then some spotty blood for another 40 yards, then some bubbly splotches of blood for the next 120 yards. The blood slowed down to drops as he exited the woods and headed across a cut bean field. Still tracking very slowly, the blood drops went over 700 yards across a cut bean field and into some standing corn.

This was at the 2 1/2 hour mark. I noticed some eyes staring back at me from the corn, so I left him until in the morning.

The next morning found me picking up the blood trail inside the corn field. Another 180 yards of blood drips and I found him crashed. A single lung hit deer can run a ways.

Getting this one mounted, as it's a larger 10pt. buck than the last one that I shot with my recurve.
Good hunting, Bowhunter57

I used to be addicted to the Hokey Pokey, but I've turned myself around.
