I ain't even got'n tags this year. Just no real time. Was thinking about the ML season but gotta work opening weekend. Oh well I always got the duck season and I do have a guided duck/ goose hunt coming up in Dec.
I've been getting out some but haven't been seeing anything. Got good spots just been unlucky I guess. Went out this evening and sat in the rain, thought they'd come out when the rain stopped but I was wrong. I'll keep tryin though.
I took a mature doe on the evening of the 8th. I made a good shot on her, but she run off through tall grass which made tracking very difficult in the dark. She ran 140 yards before expiring and it took me 1.5 hours to find her.
You are looking at the entry wound. The angle was very steep. The arrow exited through the lower part of the front leg on the other side. I got at least one lung good. I believe because the exit wound was through muscle she did not bleed through it as well as if the exit would have been through ribs. I always have a couple mini flashlights with me as well as a bright flashlight. I will place a mini flashlight where I find blood, and then the second one on the next blood. Then I leapfrog the flashlights as I find more blood. That way I can have a sense of direction the deer is going when blood trailing. This seems to work well for me, and those little LED lights are only $2.99. This deer ran through tall grass so I did not find much blood on the ground, mostly on the grass stems.
