Good idea getting the dogs! First thing in the morning and know where the closest water source is. They will try and head that direction and bed down.

I was already thinking you might have a hard time getting to sleep. I know I would.

You should find him easily. If he took a while to expire the meat may still be good in the morning. If it passes the smell test it should be OK.

Good luck!!

Good luck on the recovery, OP.
I think you made the right choice, calling in a dog, whether it went 60 yds, or 1 mile. Looking forward to seeing photos of your buck, this morning.

If the dog is going to take awhile, then I'd go ahead and start at the trail track and get your deer. Sounds like he may not have gone too far.
Good luck. been there, done that.

Dogs are supposed to be here at 8. I'm gonna go walk in at sun up and make sure he's not obviously piled up close.

Yes, I've seen him on camera a few times. I feel like I've built this up and he may not be as big to everyone here as he is to me.

Hope it's an easy track this morning and you find him close. I've had the kind of night that you just had and it's no fun. Fishndude is right though. If you already have a dog coming at 8am, I'd stay out of there and not add any unnecessary scent to the track. You've waited this long, I'd just wait another hour or so for the dog.

As someone said the other day ‘Deer hunting is subjective’. A 200” deer on one place may be the deer of a lifetime (or 10), while a 200” deer on another place is a normal occurrence. As long as you’re happy!

Good luck this morning….fingers crossed for you

The he(( with what everyone else thinks. A trophy to you is just that. Some are fortunate enough to chase 180”+WT..... some of us it’s just about the hunt. It’s all in the eyes of the hunter, not the audience.

Thank you for including us, I like the suspense and can’t wait to see your trophy.

I can assure you that it could be a 85” 6pt and that will be way bigger than what I’m going to kill today at the office
