Shot A Doe Friday Evening!!!!!

Friday evening at last light I shot a doe with the bow. From what I saw I had a high lung shot and the doe was quartering towards me. I got down and saw decent blood but not great blood. I decided to back out and get on the track first thing in the morning. I figured with all the snow down and the cold air the meat will be ok as long as the yotes don't get her first. I will post an update and hopefully pics after I find her.

Sorry to keep you guys in

Sorry to keep you guys in suspense for so long but I have been crazy busy. Here is how it went. Well the shot must not have been as good as I thought. The first 50 yards it looked good. Then the blood turned really dark and slowed way down. I gave her over 15 hours. We tracked her a little over 1/2 mile then lost all blood. Did not see one spot where she bedded down. I think she may have survived the hit.

Darn - sorry to hear that

Darn - sorry to hear that MOTF. I had a major tracking effort recently as well. I took a friend hunting for muzzleloader this past weekend but luckily it ended with me finding his Doe 2 hours later. Attached is a pic of the Doe. Shot was high but did take out 1 lung.
