For all of you who read my wounded deer thread last month: Well at least I have some closure. I went back to camp for gun season and this morning after two inches of snow I shot a nice eight point. Later this morning I was putting on a drive and found my deer that I arrowed. He was all chewed up and rotten. The worst part is that someone cut off one (why only one?) of the antlers so I can't even mount the rack. I found him about 40 yards from where my blood trail ran out. I bet I must have waked within ten feet of him about five times last month and just couldn't find him.
The worst part....the side that was still there had EIGHT points on it. The other (missing) side had at least five that I counted when I arrowed him. Why on earth would someone cut off only one side? I would have been ecstatic to at least be able to do an antler mount. Now thanks to some goober, I can't. Oh well, at least I have some closure.
