So the other evening I shot a nice little buck but recovered the arrow and found that he was either gut or liver shot. the whole arrow was covered in very dark blood and brown matter. I noted where the arrow lay and which way the deer ran after shot. after seeing the arrow I knew I had to wait till morning to look for him so I wouldn't jump him. Well I have been looking for days everywhere I can think of. trails, around water sources, heavy cover, and still no sign of him. no blood or matter anywhere. I feel so disgusted and I can't even explain it. This has never happened to me and I feel horrible. I want to at least find him although by now the meat is no good. How far does a gut shot deer usually run? I have circled around everywhere and no signs at all. He must have ran a good ways because even my dog can't sniff him out. any ideas?
