He came in at 1645 this afternoon. He was calm, I had time, and I let one fly broadside at 20yds. Thwack and luminock disappeared. He spun and ran off slightly hunched up and tail down. Go to investigate after some time. Find hair all over the place where he was and only a tiny piece of flesh attached to some very short white hair outside opposing hoof print. Zero blood, none, not a drop. Followed trail where he went up to point I last saw him - no blood. Never found the arrow either. Given the luminock disappearing and not finding the arrow, I'm assuming it's still in him.

Shooting a Rage Extreme 2-blade chisel-tip from ~65#. I told biologist and she gave me Cooper's card. I emailed him a pic of the deer in case he's found later.

I expect he'd be in the vicinity of 7-16, 7-2, or 7-14.

I'm sick - I hate to have this happen! He was a very nice buck. I don't wish this on anyone.
Just had Fred at The Bow Shop fix my peep on Friday. Shot it in his range and spot on. Did I blow the shot (appeared legit to me) or did the Rage head not deploy or did it hit opposing shoulder due to deflection? I wish I knew what went south.

Any word yet if he's been recovered?

21 day still not updated. Guess that means I still have a shot at a buck tomorrow. I tried calling to make sure but didn't get an answer.

Nothing. GW did say he'd let me know if it turned up. Sickness subsiding but frustration and curiosity still strong.

Yep. Had an obligation late this morning, so I had an excuse to sleep in. 24 degrees held from 0500 til at least 0800 this morning.

It's absolutely crazy how TA-7 is still open after 7 bucks taken and a couple unrecovered.
