well, here in PA archery is in and i was out for the night hunt today and put a shot on an 8 point at 16 yards. i never saw the arrow, but i know i didnt miss because i found some blood in the immediate area of the hit, but what troubled me was that there was no sign of the arrow (my last 3 deer in archery have been full pass throughs) and there was no blood beyond the immediate area of the hit, and it was only a splatter and a few drops. i looked for more blood for a good hour but didnt find any so i decided to resume in the morning so i wouldnt push the deer any farther with a continued search.
what should i do in the morning? i plan on taking an hour to look then if nothing shows up ill take my dog (labrador) out to track. (she's a damn good tracker).
does anybody have an experience with a deer not bleeding much after a hit? im not really sure what im asking ns for but theres got to be somebody?
