I hear you on that, I have been seeing deer as well but nothing to my liking...its been a pretty crappy week on my end to...we have decent buck in the area, the story goes like this, my dad insists that it was a non-typical giant...(4 good point on one side with multiple points on the other, including a drop tine... so he shoots and is convinced he missed and hit a twig, this occurred at 745.. I had to work at eleven so we continued to sit out the morning...at 950 he calls and said he hit this buck! I walk up and see the arrow was a complete pass thru and blood is everywhere...Now its been 2 hours, so we get tracking, within the first 100 yards no deer a blood trail like you wouldn't believe....he explained the shot it was a slightly quartering to...we found lung blood so figuring the shot, I told him probably 1 lung and liver...(no stomach contents).. after that 100 yards of very heavy blood I said we better pull out and try later. All of the sudden the heavy rains start, in a panic he decided we would track more...another 200 yards I insist we get out of there, he still tracks yet another 100 yards....heavy blood all the way. Finally after 400 yards we get out...we return at 3 pm heavy blood until a creek bed, we find two smaller pools of blood, but no deer...tried walking the area today no deer...I have 5 guys together for sunday Soo will see... while tracking the buck I did find last years kill from someone a 22mpg inch wide 9 point, with thick bases...id bet he goes 140, I will add him to the trophy room, but I am hoping to find this guy my dad hit... tons of blood didn't see any signs of bedding or laying down...I'm thinking he just kept walking, no leaves kicked up as if we booted him...Dang what a nightmare..
