Thanks guys! We played that one strictly by the books. Only reason we went so far on the initial trail was because we knew he had circled back and I could show my buddy how to track and get a better idea of what we were dealing with. Still eventually ran out of blood and came back the next morning after rain washed everything away and started scouring the area staying close to water and heading in the same general direction he was headed. Luckily the land owner was nice enough to let us track him over there. Found him on a trail coming from the creek headed to a pond. Never laid down one time, looked like he just plopped over while walking. Based on the sign we saw I kept saying I think you clipped liver and lung, and sure enough after gutting that is exactly what it was (along with stomach)...still went probably 6+ hours before expiring, which goes to show when it doubt back out!
