    I was trying to post on this last night but the site was really painfully slow. Anyways like ranger said take your time and go slow. Try to stay off of the blood trail if at all possible. If you loose blood start doing a grid search. But again go slow.

    Update he was another 40 yards from where we stoped last night ...but I guess someone else needed the meat all I found was the gut pile...they must have been watching we found 2 stands in that area also...at least I know he was down & not wounded...now for a nap & back in the stand tonight..I know this can happen I just hope they have a guilty conscience....thanks for the advice guys I do know its hard tracking dried blood this time of year the leaves can really be a challenge...

    Sorry to hear that. It can happen but I know most hunters are not like that. I guess there is a bad apple in every bunch. Sorry to hear about that. You know that means now you will be rewarded with an even larger buck :)

    Wow.. Sorry to hear that someone took your buck. That is crazy. Those are the type of people that give hunters a bad name. Hopefully karma will catch up to them soon. Did this happen on public or private land? Even worse if all that happened on your private land.

    It was private land that we have permission to hunt from a farmer... there are only 5 permissions signed for the property I get them signed every year so I know its not one of us... the stands we found are no longer there they must have taken them down the next day...like nomad_archer said there might be a bigger buck so hopefully one will come in close enough.. there are 4 new bucks I have never seen on the property before ...so im watching them hoping one comes in if not it wasnt ment to be...its just a great day when you see deer and be out in the trees...thanks guys for your help.
