Q:Just moved back to IL and am hunting deer with my bow. I stuck a beautiful 10 point but was told I can only shoot 1 buck with bow, the 2nd must be during gun season. I read the regs differntly, basically I believe I can take 2 buck with my bow and forfeit my shotgun buck permit. Is this correct?
Q:well i am not sure if this is the place to ask this but i couldnt find where to ask on the blogs/posts stuff so here it goes, been shooting a bow for about 2 seasons, pull back 70 pounds with a rage broad head. Well this nice buck was about 30 yards broadside. I pulled back and let it go, i heard a very loud knock and saw the deer walk/trot off with the arrow in its side. The shot did look a bit low but also the thing was that the arrow just didnt seem very well "in him." it looked as if actually the arrow was barely in him. I waited for a bit and set off to look for blood, there was not a drop, atleast from what i could see and i mean i looked very vigorously, i searched for a bit that evening and ran out of light so i came back in the morning round 10 and looked even more, combing the **** out of the area, no kidding and didnt find a dam thing. i did this till about 4, so literally one full day of searching non stop. As you could tell i wanted to find this deer. At this point we are hopefully waiting on buzzards or some type of sign. Any ideas of what couldve happened? maybe hitting the shoulder blade missing vitals? he was a very mature buck and didnt look like one to go down on some petty ****
