It’s probably been eight years since this has happened, but tonight I lost one after trailing blood for 98 yards (measured on HuntStand app from first blood to last blood). The shot looked good in my scope, light was great, and it was an easy trail until it wasn’t. I trained my dogs to blood trail, and one of them did very well, finding tiny blood drops past where I stopped seeing anything. I trailed for two hours. The only thing I can think of that could’ve happened is that I pulled the shot and grazed him. I’ll look again after I hunt a different spot in the morning so that I can search in the light of day. It’s cold so if I find it it’ll be fine. I’m mostly posting because I spend so much time here talking about successful hunts that when I fail I think it’s important to own it so that new hunters know that we all screw up now and then. Still sucks though.
