    No luck this morning. We tracked blood for over 3 hours, and the drops got further and further apart, till they stopped entirely.

    Dangit.

    Sh:t. Sorry to hear. I have shot a few deer where you could clearly see that they had been hit in the past and healed up.

    Nice rifle. I recently got a 94 that rolled off the line the same year I did, 1978. Will put up pics when I get around to it. My best friend shot a nice buck last year. His rifle was on a bipod, the deer was standing broadside, and we had a good blood trail to follow. We searched for two hours and finally concluded that he made it off the property.

    I shot a big doe once with a 270 she was a quarter shot facing away i hit her just a bit low just behind front shoulder. Whe it came out other side it blew out other shoulder and got one lung. She ran like i missed her as i was about to give i found on spec of lung tissue on a leaf. We tracked that deer about 1000 yards. We could see a couple times were she laid down a poured blood. I woulda never thought with a shot that good with a 270 a deer would go that far.when we jumped her once on top of her she jumped and ran again and buckled in the creek bellowing swinging her neck. I put another in her then she was done.

    It's eating me up. We followed blind trails. We made circles looking for blood. We guessed and took short walks just looking for evidence. Now I'll have to watch for turkey buzzards over the next couple weeks, and see if they lead me to him. :facepalm:

    Just throwing this out there, but if you know anyone with a drone cam you could see the area from a different perspective. Might help. If it is bedded down.

    Problem is, he was following a ridge that's full of hemlocks. No drone is going to look down on him from there.

    Here's a Google Earth view:

    They always go( down hill ) to water, ( correct it will be in the creek ) Might be a mile, but it will be in a creek! or water.

    Take along a dog. Put him on the blood with a leash. I've found a half dozen with my shorthair leading the way
