shot a buck at 5:30 this eve..not the best shot angle quartered too bad put it right in his armpit 7 yards..ran off like a bat outta hell, blood everywhere first 75 yards..backed out after that will return in the morning..killed many with this shot and would take it again. im pretty sure he's dead before the creek..but i've done this a time or 2 and if he's dead now he will be dead at 7am..no worries bout coyotes here nothing but deer bunnies and cow's..

Why you would gamble to risk seeing if the AT curse holds water is beyond me....

Good luck with your search!

In for the recovery! I beat the curse with the buck in my avatar. I'm confident you will too!

if its right behind the armpit, likely you got at least 1 lung and or liver. with that shot and you giving him overnight, you'll find him not too far.

In for the kill

If it was me and I knew the shot was good he would be butchered and cooling before sunrise. Just saying.

Congrats!

This overnight thing is getting out of hand. Get a good light and go recover the meat.

^^^There are times when you should go look right away, but with cold weather and a marginal hit going after that deer tonight would be out of hand.

Thanks man. Good luck and be sure to post pics.

No thanks on the meat. Now if it was Elk, I'd pay the shipping.

Oh it's unbelievable. My dad and brother took a couple cow elk this fall. That meat melts in your mouth like butter. And has an awesome flavor. By far one the best wild meat flavors out there. I've had that opinion for years now. We stopped eating northern MN whitetail years ago. Nasty tasting stuff.

It must not be as dark there, at 5:30, as it is here. I can barely see the ground at that time.
