    So this morning I had a shot at a beautiful western Oklahoma whitetail buck at about 400 yards. After the shot the deer seemed to be hit but he jumped the fence and went out of sight the moment he got shot at. When I got to the spot I noticed alot of hair on the barb wire fence. Directly over the fence was a very small drop of blood with little bubbles in it. I followed drop for drop and sometimes it was specs of blood for about 40 yards. But it always had little bubbles in it. My question is did I hit this deer or did he cut his belly on the fence because I can NOT find him.

    Any pics of the blood? Bubbles in the blood usually means a lung shot. Was the blood bright red or darker?

    Bubbles on the blood definitely means lung hit. But, if you only hit one lung the deer could stay alive for a long time. Do you think your shot could have been a little too far back? What color is the blood? How far have you tracked? How long did you wait before beginning to track?
