I shot a nice buck this afternoon. Not quartering at all should have been a pass thru shot. Can't find arrow but trailed him 50-60 yards bright red blood couple puddles. About the last 25-30 yards had 2-3 drops of dark pink along with bright red then to nothing. Any thoughts on this?

likely wasn't as broadside as you thought - shots happen the way we think they do, but they really happen another way .... I don't know if its because our mind's eye is so set with a mental picture of perfect broadside or ???

anyway .... remember this .... I shot a buck last weekend - full penetration. Literally he didn't start bleeding good for 100-125 yards and he ran at least 250 yard ... maybe 300. Double lung hit, and he ran THAT far

don't give up - keep gridding the area .... hard hit deer should dies withing 100-200 yards, maybe a bit farther even
