I'm got back home in SC from my WV trip today. Well, I'm sick. I hit a big buck last Thursday evening at 17yrds and he ducked and the arrow hit high right behind the shoulder and the arrow was sticking out of him. The buck ran about 50 yards and the arrow broke off and I recovered both pieces of the arrow, the arrow did exit the off side. I had bright red blood but very little. I waited 2.5 hours before starting the track job. We trailed it for about 200yrds and decided to go back the next morning. We picked up the trail the next morning and with very little blood we were able to track it another 125yrds up a steep hill from where we left off last night. We looked for a total of 6 hours doing a grid search from last blood and found nothing. Could the deer survive this shot?
