(North Leflore Co.)Wounded him last Sunday 12/28/14. Hit him low in the front shoulder/high leg. We looked all over woods Sunday evening with no sign. I left town early the next morning and was sick thinking of the wounded buck suffering because I made a poor shot. I got back in town Thursday January 2, 2015 around 10:00 at night and started looking for him the next morning. I walked about 2 miles and looked for any sign but found nothing. Fortunately , I remembered my son, Steele V, telling me he thought he saw a deer limping right at dark that Sunday evening. I went to that area again and headed 100 yards further south than i had previously looked and jumped him in a thicket 1/3 mile from where he was originally shot and I was lucky enough to complete the kill. Very lucky and grateful to find him 5 days later. I feel like my Late grandfather was helping me.
