congrats Cm! awesome to see a buck still fall as it is getting later. Charles I think I would go out tomorrow and wander around looking. you still may find that deer. look along any creeks or ditches. bedding 50 yds apart is very close. sounds like gut shot to me. check out about 75 yds from last bed and grid search from there out. gut shot sometimes takes 24 hours or so. the key is that she feels like she would rather lay down than run or walk. she will be dead in the morning someplace. it's not over unless you want it to be. if you don't find her tomorrow then call it.
