Default Odd Muzzleloader Buck

kinda hard to believe but back in 2005, I shot a buck at 50 yards in about 6" of fresh snow. It was a perfect shot, double lungs. It was a complete pass through and the buck ran about 60-yards. For the entire distance and where he fell, not a single drop of blood. Not one. Take a look.
Even for the trophy shot, no blood. Maybe it was because it was -17 degrees.
BTW- If you are new to mzl. in extreme cold don't take your gun inside. The condensation in the barrel can cause problems.

Great looking Buck. No Blood though? Are you sure it didn't die of a heart attack, after you shot and missed hitting it?

Might have had a heart attack but the heart looked healthy. However, both lungs were a real mess. he was Full of blood inside, just didn't have any make it outside. had I not heard him fall and followed his track a little ways, he might never have been found.

That is exactly why I exhaust every effort in trying to find my deer after the shot.
I truly cannot imagine the deer that are lost due to a half hearted follow up! I shotgunned and double lunged my buck this season to find no blood but specs of lung tissue... I thought I missed, further inspection...tissue and small amount of hair kept me going.

Nice buck! Saskatchewa?
