Congrats on the great deer! Don’t give up on me just yet. The first part of the season wasn’t too great and the dog hunters take over the public land I hunt, hopefully the weather and work will cooperate a little and I can help y’all out a lil’.

I blew it! It’s been a long time since I missed, crippled , or failed to find a deer, but I did it Friday evening.

I haven’t gotten to hunt much this year and finally got in the woods again Friday afternoon. I had been watching a doe and yearling since about 4:45 and was ready to get down. With just a couple of minutes of legal time left, he stepped out into the plot. Not a monster, but a good 8 point.

A little background before I go any further. This has been my go to spot for several years, but this year they clear cut 150 acres on us and the gorgeous hardwood bottoms on either side of this plot are gone. I thought I would be able to see deer moving through it, but it turns out it is all chest high weeds and knee deep hedge along with all of the stumps logs and tops. You can’t even see your feet walking, or should I say falling through it.

Now back to the story. Light and time were almost gone. Knowing I didn’t want him to leave the plot, I decided to shoot him in the shoulder. Looking back, that was my mistake. Shot through the shoulders with a 300 WSM, deer don’t run. Playing it back in my mind I realize he had turned quartering away from me facing the doe and yearling.

I looked for blood, but didn’t see any. Knowing the rain was coming, I backed out to go get my son’s bloodhound. He is young, his first year trailing and works them slow, but he has found 3 this year already.

Just as we got back the rain started. We turned him loose and he went in right where the deer went and went straight down the hill where I had heard the deer go. The rain got a lot harder. After a few minutes of rain he didn’t act like he could smell anything anymore, but kept working hard.

After 1 1/2 hours we gave up for the night. After raining all day yesterday we went back in there this morning hoping to find him. My son jumped him out of his bed about 75 yards from where I last heard him. He said his right front leg was busted and he wasn’t moving fast, but he felt like he will survive. Of course, neither of us carried a gun, or he would have finished him off.

Hopefully he will be ok and give me, or someone else another chance later in the year. Now I wish I had missed.

I think he will be good. There was very little blood in the bed he got up from. I think the bullet went through his shoulder and came out in front of the opposite one. I will stay out of that spot for a couple of weeks, but I won’t give up. He is only one of several I am after. Thanks for the encouragement.
