  • That’s a awful feeling when you know you’ve got one wounded and can’t find it, but it’s going to happen but it always sucks when it does lol. Good Luck on your next hunt!

    Had a very similar situation with my daughter Avery when she first started hunting. We had a nice little buck dead to rights at 10 yards from the blind. She took the shot and all we heard was the all to familiar sound of an arrow thwacking into wood and the lightning fast retreat of a buck. There was one limb between her and this buck and her arrow found it. Tough pill to swallow and a hard lesson to learn but your shot has to be clear and you can’t force a shot with a bow. I’m pretty sure I was more upset for her than she was for herself. The hard knocks come with hunting but those make good stories to laugh about down the road. She’ll get another chance and she’ll be all the wiser next time around. Good luck to you both this season. 👊🏻
