Good job Rabbit. Way to go on your buck. I have been having a tough hunt here in Wisconsin. Nothing to show for two visits. I am being a little selective on my hunting but this last week has been a little tough with all the rain - 20-30 mph winds and more rain. Shot a large 8 on Saturday but never did find him. Hit him in the shoulder and surprising the arrow only penetrated 5 inches, found the arrow with it broke off. Blood an additional 4 inches of the arrow but 5 inches were in the deer. I truly thought the deer was done but not so. Waited for 4 hours and looked for him. I was certain that I had him but it turned out that the blood trail was not good. We did find blood about every 20 to 30 feet but only spots. It finally disappeared down in one of my valleys. We walked thru both valleys but never did find him. Darn. I really thought the shot was good. With my bow at 70 pounds and 31 inch draw I have 405 grain arrows traveling at 326 ft/sec. I am surprised I did not have a complete pass thru. Actually my elk that a shot two years ago was a complete pass thru. I must have really hit something hard. I do have one more hunt coming in two more weeks so we shall see. But I am really going to have to get my act together as the pressure is really on now.
