    I told you if you don't believe contact Joe lacefield and ask him yourself but you are so set in your beliefs that you don't want to swallow your pride and be proven wrong.

    Most times a wounded deer won't go to far till they bed down and most of the time if they are fatally wounded they won't moved very far from that first bed unless pushed. I gut shot a doe a few years ago and waited 6 hrs before taking up the track and I found her bedded about 200 yards from where I shot her. She was still alive but she stay bedded while I eased in and put another arrow in her.

    Waiting until morning is your best bet. I gut shot a doe a few years back with a bow just before dark, its insides were hanging out from where the arrow slit it open....didn't think it would go far. I jumped it up and lost it in the dark down in a deep hollow covered in thick brush and thickets. Went back the next morning and didn't find a trace from where it jumped up. If I had backed out and waited, I would have found it the next morning no problem. Good luck!

    Has nothing to do with pride. It’s has to do with biology and physiology. Plus the burden of proof isn’t on me. It wasn’t my story.

    Then simply ask the man who sent me the story first. Since it has to do with biology what better person to ask than Joe lacefield the biologist himself who did the autopsy. Please do and show your findings once you get his answer. I'm sure you and the rest of the people on here will be mighty surprised at what your research uncovers.

    Hope you find him. It’s a sick feeling no one likes to have, but part of hunting for everyone at some time.

    If I did t have to get my annual FAA medical today I’d offer to come help.

    First off I already have and posted what he has said. You and your childish ways still wants to disagree because you can't bear to be proven wrong. Until you ask him yourself grow up and stop making yourself look like a 5 year old on the playground with your sarcastic remarks about what you don't have any facts about.

    Could you all take this pissing match to a separate thread? Every time you two get into a thread like this lately, it’s the same ol’ thing.

    Also, to the OP, good luck in finding your deer. That arrow looked like it had decent blood on it to me. Probably liver.
