Shot my first buck today but can't find him. He was quartering away at 20 yards. I thought it was a good shot, a little high but snuck it in behind the front shoulder. I knew i didn't get a pass though and saw him run with the arrow. I gave him 2 hours before taking trail because i could not find much blood at the shot site. My buddy and i follwed the blood trail for 3 hours but it suddenly stopped. We found some areas of really good blood but most of the trail was tough to follow. One area had a 2 foot puddle. We follwed for about 300 yards. Never found the arrow...so i know i got decent penetration. Is there anyway it hit under spine and stuck in opposite shoulder without touching a lung? Don't you think i would have found the arrow if it was just a Flesh wound. I'll be out first thing in the AM to keep on looking. What a dissapointing day.
