Well, I dropped my first deer of the season. I hit her at 24 yds with my recurve. the arrow hit her a little high bc she dropped when i shot but it passed all the way thru. I found the arrow about 30 yds from where she was shot. No blood anywhere except on the arrow. Not one drop. 4 of us searched for her. I finally found a little pool of blood about 60 yds away in a bedding area. then....no more blood...at all. All we could do is comb the area. 2 hours later and exhausted; we called it. I was not happy. We covered a lot of ground and we were about half a mile away from where she was shot. As we;re walking out; I see a white belly in the woods. Its her. She wasn't the biggest doe....only about 65lbs; but she'll taste great. Im just glad I found her.
