I shot this nice 8 pointer last night...and after 90 minutes past light I was really worried. Pass-thru shot, arrow nicely coated in blood, but could not find blood on the ground ANYWHERE. Called in family/friends....had 6 people searching hard problem is this place is very dense with several deep gullies.

One of the friends, a girl, was meticulous finding a spec of blood on a leaf - 60 yards from the shot. When I say spec I mean maybe quarter size of a dime spec...another 20 yards she finds another. Over the next 90 minutes she's plotted the trail with toilet paper...we're 150 yards from the shot and no blood droplets bigger than a dime. We're now down in one of the deep gullies with a steep embankment...I would have sworn on a stack of bibles this buck did not scale this - especially injured. Mid-point up embankment, another spec. I'm literally climbing with my hands and knees....on top nothing. Then incredibly 30 yards in a dinner plate size blood spot where he obviously fell, got back up and went another 30 yards and collapsed for good. Amazing 250 yards including scaling a deep gully. His rack was marginal, I only took him because of the brow tines but man what a stud. He'll look good on my wall... ;-)

Yeah I lost a decent 10 pointer 3 years ago...we found only after the buzzards showed up he had circled back and crawled under a cedar no more than 100 yards from my stand. I was depressed for a week over that one....

Last night I started questioning my shot...I remember perfect double lung, evidence said something else (little blood trail)...turns the shot was solid.

Keep that one on speed dial. She could probably make a few bucks during the season too. flehan
