Re: What do you make of this ?
Thanks guys for your thoughts !
That artwork is just great HAPPY!
I'm sure the hit is in the mass of the body rather than around the edges. My justification of this is I believe the deer would have been spine shot if the bullet had gone higher on the impact. Anywhere in that top 4-6 " and I think he would have dropped like a rock.
I dont believe he could only be muscle hit as there isn't anything in that area to support that. If it was in the legs that would be different but a high body shot with bright red blood without foam suggests forward of the paunch but it could be in rear of the lungs high or liver.
I feel that given 14 hours before we were in there looking gives us every chance for him to have bedded eventually and expired, maybe not far out of the current search area which is only about 400 M square currently
With each step in the bush, you are a step closer.
