I own 88 acres low fence here in Henderson County. That is where all of my hunting will take place.

Buck last night my buddy shot looked to have been gut shot on exit. I found a small pond on an aerial 400 yds from shot and he went there this morning to look. He found him bedded on the edge of the water ALIVE. He backed out and headed to his house for his bow, range finder and binos. Buck looked at him while he was there but didn't move. He is headed back shortly and will take a closer look at him. Looks like he will get to 40 yds or so and hopefully finish him off!

Glad he at least found him. My dog did jump a deer 100 yds from here and I'm almost certain it was him. Good thing we backed out.

I'll update as I receive info!

Realistically this deer is closer to 140" than he is 150" but still a toad of an 8pt.

Don't think the dog could have bayed him up last night?

My dog is a stray that showed up last fall. I put out a flyer and Facebook post for found Bloodhound. Nobody ever replied so I took him in. I don't know his level of tracking and it was just a try. I honestly think he was on the trail knowing now where the deer is. He went exactly to this spot and we turned around because my buddy didn't think he went that way. Ends up we were 100 yds or less from the water hole. That is where we heard a deer jump also and backed out the second time.

No sign of buck again just yet. He is set up on the opposite side of the water just waiting.

Still sitting and waiting. Thick cover around the water. I'm sure he is just bedded there and possibly already expired. If he doesn't see him again he wants to wait until morning to walk to the exact spot he last saw him.

If hes gut shot and its been almost 24 hours now I bet he's dead. If not very very weak and ain't gona go far...id be trying to put him out of his misery or recover some meat and not let him go to waste over night.

I was excited to see him work. Head down and nostrils knocking! When he smelled the arrow and then the ground he was off. Pulling him away 300-400 yds in was a tug a war match. He acted different everywhere else after that.

Been 20 hrs and as of 5 hrs ago he was still alive. I bet he is very weak. He is sitting over the water hole watching for him. It's 50 yds Diameter so any struggle or movement from the deer he will see brush moving.

Yes unless he comes out more. Earlier all he could see was face and throat patch.
