Q:
I just wanted to update you guys what I asked about on the 10th, the buck I hit and never found. The buck I hit always hung around with a nice 8 pointer and since ive hit him, ive only seen the 8 pointer without his buddy. Today I checked my trail camera and the buck I hit is back. He has a small white bump where I hit him, but it looks like hes fine. By the looks of it, I had hit him in the shoulder blade like I had thought. The buck I hit was a nice 7 pointer, a shooter for sure where I hunt, hes the one in my profile pic. He has joined back up with the 8 pointer so its time to start hunting him and the 8 again!

My PSE is 50# pull. It punches broadheads right through the shoulder blade. How far away was this deer and what kind of pull weight are you working with?

60 pounds and 20 yards away. Not sure how the arrow didn't do what you described, but I'm glad hes still alive so I can keep hunting him.

If he is truly ok and not injured at all, you should give him a pass and take the other buck. Afterall shouldn't that deer you hit be rewarded after having survived an encounter with a hunter?

Actually I have thought alot about this. The other buck with him is bigger but will not give any shots, which is why I shot the one I did. He is still on camera and he is healthy. The wound has healed and can hardly be seen. He still goes by my trail camera day and night but I have not seen him. I have been thinking alot about letting him go if he shows himself again. I know for a fact he would be a great deer next year.
