What I would do is go to the last place you saw blood and begin doing circles from that area. Since there are no blood signs left, just keep circling around. The funny thing about deer is that they hardly EVER go in a straight line after being hit. I've heard many stories about deer being hit and running one direction and ending up 200 yds in the opposite dirrection. That's why I suggest the circle thing. Check leaf piles or places where the ground is lower than normal. Try brushy places too. They sometimes like going into thick thorn areas or weeded areas for cover because they know they need to lay down. I've also had an experience where one crawled up under the exposed roots of a tall oak on the side of a creek. Took me FOREVER to find her, but there she was and she was camoflagued in well.

Noah, I meant to keep on trying to find the deer until you can honestly say that you've tried like heck and did all you can to find him. I may have worded my previous post wrong, sorry.
