Not a pool, several dime sized drops
Problem is only gun I have back at the truck is a single shot 223 and the wind isn’t in my favor to trail him. Sure I’d like to save the meat, but if I push him I know I’ll lose both. As long as the coyotes don’t find him I’m hoping I can salvage some of the meat in the morning
Are you in campbell co?
Like others have said if you go look take the.223 with you...you may need it.
I think looking in the morning is ur best option. Really. I know it will be a long night. BUT, u know it's gut shot at the least. He will be dead in the morning for sure.
I agree... unless it rains. Then he’ll likely need a dog. Tough call. The meat will be fine in the morning... its cold enough and he likely wont die for awhile anyhow.
Honestly I'd rather look for a dead deer after a night of rain, than jump him up in the evening. I've shot a couple deer in the gut over the years. Sometimes it takes them a while expire. No def amount of hrs when he dies. It's a deadly shot no doubt. But that's just my opinion. I hope he finds it whatever he chooses.
Again, thank you all for your tips. I truly do appreciate it!! I know there’s no black and white in this scenario
Where are you at in nky
Or a g5 montec.
And I’m gonna give into my paranoia and wait till morning and bring a shotgun with slugs just in case. If I need a dog, so be it. I’ll try to get a hold of one when I get home if he’s not in the general area where he was last seen and there’s no blood trail. I’m not holding my breath on there being a good blood trail even if I were to look now according to what little I’ve seen in the first 20 yards
Good luck, probably the best decision.
That's some crazy stuff and a testement to the toughness off a whitetail.
