Default First Bow Buck!!

]This buck was chasing a doe and would not come to the feeder so I shot him the first chance I got. I shot him with a two blade rage perfect quartered away double lung shot. I saw him run off and I heard him crash about 80 yards away. I stayed in the blind for an hour and then went back to the camper to get more cloths. When I stared tracking him I went straight to where I heard him crash and he was no where to be see. So I then went to where I shot him and found my arrow but absolutely no blood. I started to second guess my shot and was getting worried. We finally started to walk in a straight line where we thought he might go and 4 hours later we found my deer. the coyotes had just got to him but all the meet was still good I looked where I had shot him and it was a perfect behind the shoulder shot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rE15Sk5dTIM

Great buck. Was it a head you had shot before or practiced with? A Rage in the cage is usually a really short, profuse, blood trail.

Anyone else having troubles with the video? I get a message that says the address isn't understood or something like that. Get it whether I click on the link or copy and paste it.

Congrats, nice buck and good video.

I couldn't see any entrance/exit wound in the video, did you ever determine where you hit him and the internal trauma?
