This buck has been hanging around like this for about 2 weeks. The Game Warden has been out a couple of time but this fellow is gone by the time the warden shows up. It doesn't appear to be in a vital spot but an infection is very likely . Just a reminded to be careful about your shot.
Wait for the right shot. It the broadside photo it almost appears to be an entry or an exit wound.

Sad deal, but deer pretty dang tough. My guess is he will survive and the arrow will eventually fall out.

Sad situtation indeed, time to put down the camera and pick up a rifle.

Can't pick up a rifle, we live in a subdivision where everyone only has a acre or two. There is a ranch next door and that probably where the buck came from.

Bad shots happen with both gun and bow, I wouldn't post a picture of it though. Guess that's just me.

"Bad shots happen with both gun and bow, I wouldn't post a picture of it though. Guess that's just me."

I agree, and thought about it for quite a while before posting. I just wanted to remind everyone that we have a responsibility when we go hunting. Make sure is a good opportunity before pulling the trigger or releasing an arrow.

Update : In spite of his injury I watched him chasing a doe this morning across my yard and across the street to a neighbors and still going.
