Found my buck 6 weeks later
Hunting Trip Update/Kill
I was really disappointed that I didn't find him sooner, being that he was only 150 yards away, but I walked by this location within 20 yards several times. There was fresh snow the night after I shot him, and I did not think I hit the deer. I watched the deer walk off with no sign of being hit and no fresh blood where he was standing. Never did find the arrow. He didn't show up on trail cam and we started looking for him a few days later.
I found my buck and unfortunately good meat was gone to waste, but the varmits and birds ate well.
