Huge shout out to my family for helping me track this deer last night, over 400 yards through some pretty gnarly terrain.
All that effort was not in vain, as this morning, only 50' from last blood and on the opposite side of the channel that hindered our search last night, my first buck taken with traditional archery tackle was found.
This deer has catapulted itself to the top of my list of harvests, and I'm glad you all were there to share in the tracking.
I have trail cam pics of this buck, 1.64miles away from where I shot him back on October 15th. Just goes to show you, how deer will travel.
This is also the first buck I've drawn down on, with any weapon, since November 10th, 2010. I've taken dozens of does but never had the opportunity at a buck until last afternoon. I'm still giddy as all get out, especially considering this was a new spot. I drive by this spot daily, and Wednesday I decided to give a quick little scout, and Sunday afternoon the wind was perfect. I'm glad I waited. Would have liked a better shot, but, meat is still in great shape and will be spending many-o-days in my crockpot and on my Weber.

This was my first venture into this area this year. Did a quick scout and sit.

Found out the reason the channel was so deep because of an impressive beaver dam.

I was able to cross the dam easily only 100yds from last blood the previous night. My deer was laying half in the water on the opposite bank directly across from last blood.

The saturated river bottom, shoulder high grass, shadows from flashlights, it was a tough track.

Way to get it done! The first is the toughest, it provides the confidence needed for the next XXX that you will take.

Congrats!

That's a great entry.

Hopefully the first of many!

Congratulations. Nothing like the surge of thankfulness and relief that wells up at that first sight of white (or antler) up ahead after following a trail.
