Shot a 11 point at 9:10 this morning. 111 yards from me immediately dropped all 4 legs straight out and death kick. Watched a spike walk out of the field took it 4-5 minutes deer not moving went to pack all my stuff and recover. Looked up once everything was put up and the deer was gone. All kinds of hair but found 0 blood. Did a back and forth search over the hill where I would've though it went to and didn't find no sign of deer. Lesson learned for me, I just hate hunting this many days and first time I switch the safety off all season and couldn't find it. I killed a coyote a few days ago that was 125-130 yards. No clue what happened. I guess I'm hanging it up till next year.
