Default That's why it's called hunting....

Sometimes you will lose your animal, it happens. The pools of blood were where she layed down until she sensed pressure and she got up and moved. We probibly have all lost a Deer or will during our hunting career. It sounds like you tracked it as far and as long as you could. Something ate it don't feel bad about it. I personally like to follow the front leg up 1/3 into the shoulder and shoot the Deer there. That will break the shoulder and anchor animal.
