That mount turned out great! I had the same thing happen to me in 05'. I shot a long tined spike and after a couple days, gave up. I was out rabbit hunting the following January and found him 100 yds from where I had shot. He was laying in tall cattails mixed with thick bushes. I must have passed him 100 times!

Just one more step.....please!

Terry, WOW, that thing is a beauty. It hurts when you don't find them right away, but finding them later at least gives you some closure. I had the same thing happen to me this year with my 2nd Illinois buck of the season. Did not get an exit hole and only got one lung. Took like 16 hours to find him, and when I did, the coyotes had taken their toll. The mount will still look nice, and I feel good knowing I did the best I possibly could.

I hunted pigs with Gene and Barry one time in Texas. I have never seen so many P&Y class bucks. I think I saw more P&Y bucks in that 5 day hunt than I have seen in my life, and I live in Illinois! Never saw any really big bucks though...just lot's of nice ones. That one you shot looks like a really big Texas buck.
