I've had deer do that to, where you shoot and think man he didn't even move must have missed , then watch him walk 30-40 yds and collapse. I've also noticed some years the deer just disappear for 7 - 10 days. Usually during the last week of bow season leading into the beginning of rifle. Making that second week of rifle season a little more rewarding. Of course thats here and I believe your rifle season starts during the peak of the rut, so that is a little odd they were laying low that first weekend. None the less a deer like that keeps your hunting fire raging for many years!

I've also taken a particular deer out of a group.....the shot deer runs off and the rest stand there wondering what just happened. I think they just can't tell where the shot came from and often if it's later in the season, they get used to hearing gunshots once in awhile.

You just never know when a nice buck will show up during the rut. Cool story.
