msbadger - That is actually a pretty good story. Another example of anything can happen during the rut. Hopefully you did not ruin your safety harness.

Take care.

dtlund, That's a nice looking buck, you did well sir. Can I assume it was firearms? We like details around here. And welcome to the forum.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Thank you! I took him with my Browning A-Bolt 25-06 at about 50 yards in hardwoods Sunday afternoon of opening weekend about 20 minutes before the end of shooting hours. I was in my climber on a tree that's let me see a lot of deer over the years. It's thick and hilly enough that's any shot I get from that tree will be less than 100 yards. I took the shot just as he entered my shooting lane, or maybe even before since I was a little too excited for proper thinking. He made it maybe 75 yards before falling over. There is pretty heavy hunting pressure on the surrounding properties, and I suspect he was spooked into moving around. We don't bait, but the neighbors do, so that makes the take a little sweeter.

My friend and butcher said he looked bruised all along one side, even back as far as the hindquarters. Said he might have been hit by a car. Or could have it been fighting? I didn't notice any external injuries. Anyone have any similar experiences?

Indiana shotgun season 2012. I saw 24 deer opening day including 3 bucks. I got a shot at this one about noon Saturday but I only wounded him in the hind leg. I didn’t finish the deal until about noon today(Thursday-Thanksgiving Day)It took the efforts of four different neighbors who allowed me to pursue this guy across their properties. I saw him twice when I didn’t have a shot. Today the high winds allowed a close approach while he was bedded on the neighbor’s place.
