I hunted on both days this weekend with my muzzle loader and on sunday morning we were setting up a drive. So I was sitting on the drive and just got to my spot. Immediately there were three does coming to me so I sat down and waited til they got with in 20 yards and let one fly. I hit the biggest doe in the front shoulder and she jumped the fence. I stayed on post til I seen the drivers because I had no doubt that she was down. Well we start tracking her with great blood and end up going two hundred yards. We let her go for an hour to give her some time. Got back on the track and she was crossing a river about every 50 yards. Just zig zagging all over and still losing lots of blood. eventually she ended up jumping off a low head dam into the ice. From there not a trace of her. I tracked her from 930am-3pm ended up going home really upset. Finally at 4pm my son and I went back to look. I had one more area to search. Well to my surprise we see a deer head pop up out of a brush pile and go back down. I thought there she is finally. Anyway I shot it but it was a buck with shed antlers. I got it checked in and hung it and found a muzzy sticking out of his neck. Also what looks to be a broadhead in his rump anyway the whole deer is infected. I am glad to put him out of his misery but I just do not think this is the deer I hit. So back to square one and still cannot find any sign after she jumped into the ice. Sorry for the long story but has anyone ever lost a deer that had jumped into ice covered water or any ideas what she might have done?
