    Default She must be a Zombie

    I went out on the 16th of this month in hopes of shooting a doe for my neighbor so they would have some meat for the winter. I shot this doe about 5pm that afternoon after waiting about 30 minutes or so I started tracking good blood for 200yds then nothing. I was confident in my hit, I even shoot lighted nocks so that made me feel even better when I saw the pass through. I go back the next day walk for several hours and find nothing so I gave up very bothered by it none the less. Fast forward Christmas eve last minute card pull and low an behold here she is. You can clearly see the entrance and exit on her hide this I will never understand. 100gr Muzzy was the head.

    She still looks healthy and even fat...she must have been eating 4 leaf clovers that day for breakfast.

    Two words I never use when talking about deer, which are "always" and "never"! They are amazing animals!

    And all the "experts" vehemently deny that there is not a "no mans land" between the vitals and the back bone. I shot one exactly like that once with an arrow and it survived. I killed it later and as we were skinning the deer there was the tell tale sign on the inside of the hide entrance and exit. My brother shot one with a 30-06 also and we never recovered it that day. A couple of months later he shot and killed the deer and again while skinning the deer there was the tell tale sign. On that one we also found that the lung had grown attached to the inside of the rib cage at the site of the wound.

    To all those hunters who I tracked shot deer for, the ones that I either scolded or cussed for making a bad hit.
    I will now APOLOGIZE.
