Got out for only the third time last Saturday. Arrived at one of my stands that has been a proven hot spot many times. Initially wasn’t going to go but, knew that it was prime time! Arrived about three and settled in. Wind was pretty strong, but manageable. Right about 4:10, I caught movement off my left shoulder. As I turned, I had a beautiful 10 pointer approaching very slowly from about 25 yards out. He was moving pretty cautiously. His direction of travel would take him directly behind me, but right at the base of the tree. As he walked under me, I was in his blind spot so I was able to grab the bow from it’s hanger. After done by so, I turned to my right to see his progress. He locked up at my 5 o’clock and started scent checking. I hunt pretty high so I knew I was okay to that extent.

After lingering for what seemed like an eternity, he continued on, and then circled in front of me at about 7 yards. He paused behind some scrub which allowed me an opportunist to draw and hold. As he moved forward, I had a small window of opportunity to take a shot. After settling the 10 yard pin on his shoulder, I let it fly. A good shot with the arrow getting excellent penetration up to the fletchings. Time to let the Rage do its work.

Off he went! After waiting a reasonable time, I got down to start the trail. Much to my dismay, no blood trail! I knew the shot was good, so plan B was to scan the area in ever widening semi circles based on last direction of travel. Searched for about 20 Minutes before I found him piled up about 50 yards away! Ended up being a really nice 10 pointer with a large body! He wasn’t the biggest I’ve been lucky to take, but a gorgeous Buck too nice to pass! I can send pics to someone via email for posting!

Congrats!!! I shot a deer a couple years ago and I never found a drop of blood. I went to the last place I saw him and I found him about 20 yards away because I could smell him. Perfect heart shot but no blood. It's crazy how hat works sometimes.
