Well, we're off and running! 2 posts about hitting a big buck before recovering said buck or taking every measure to find it and so far, 2 that haven't been found. Here's a little tip, if you shoot a deer, stay off the site until you either recover it and have hero pics to post or exhaust all avenues of recovery and are certain the deer won't be found. The curse is a bad one and it seems to happen all too often to people who come on here and let everyone know they hit a deer but haven't found it yet.

I did just that last year on a buck I shot in Ohio. It does take a little will power to stay off of here because misery loves company. During the 4 hr. wait I had before I started looking for that buck I stayed off AT and low and behold, I walked right up to him only minutes after starting to look. All despite the rain that started after I left the woods, not finding my arrow at the impact site and no blood to follow.

So.........BEWARE THE CURSE!!!!!!!

I'm trying to remember if I've ever read one where they actually found the buck?
I managed it three years back...had to wait for morning cause my hunting b uddy was too drunk to help...couldn't sleep...posted...found it on the other side of the bush where I shot it the next morn. Either you are or aren't gonna find it AT has nothing to do with it.

It didn't work the following year though..:tongue:

I've only been around for little more than a year and 1/2 but I've seen way more threads like this turn out for the worst.

,,,,,,, and you will more than likely see a whole lot more.

Untill the deer is bagged and tagged, AT is off limits... I aint taking any chances.
