Default Omg!!! Now I need positive thoughts for my 10 year old

Shot a big 8 tonight with her compound. Shot was back and high. Hoping liver. Troup is on the way again!! Most expensive day of hunting in my life but worth every penny. Please keep us in your thoughts. This is a pretty big 8 for my lease

How high and back? I shot one 2 years ago that was just below the spine and just in front of the rear hind quarter.

It was a bad shot because I dropped the bow too quickly to watch the shot but I clipped an artery and he was dead inside of 150 yards. No blood trail. The blood stayed inside the body cavity. My arrow looked exactly like that.

I let him sit over night and found him the next morning thanks to Mexican Eagles that were on him that flew away when I got close.

Troup is going to give you the old cocked head look and think, didn’t we just do this earlier today?

Be a good story for many years...hunt ‘em up Troup!

Does the arrow have any "stink" to it? Bright red blood is good, but it looks a little watery
