Beaches like Puerto Galera, Boracay, and the various beaches in Cebu rake in tourists from around the world all year round because of their pristine and cool blue waters and fine, white-sand shores.
Waiting a couple hours only gets you more excited, but rarely hinders your recovery. If he was being pushed, and the hole was stopping up, you may drive him a mile or more. In fact quartering away shots give you the most margin for error.
I think the only time you push a deer is with a pure muscle hit because you want him to keep pumping blood, and keeping him on the move does that. I'd go to the nearest water hole (pond creek, etc.) and begin to scout around the edges. My 13 year old daughter is going hunting for the first time this year. I did tell her to be patient and wait for it to turn broad side, but she understood what was going on with the different shots! justin ive been reading and have added to your site for over a year and i enjoy the stories which have been posted i think you have a great site keep up the good work may your blood trails be short and your venison be never over cooked bill These pic's are a excellecnt teaching practices for shot placement for youngster's and older beginers, it was a great tool to have my son and my fiance. Never turn advice down always listen, I talked to a guy at TSC for 30 minutes and learned alot of good tips! it wasn't easy, but I learned that you have to stick it out. Do you think my broadhead could penetrate the front shoulder and hit the vitals on a 20-yard shot?
The Bomba Beach, located in barangay Bomba some 2 kilometers away from the city, is also a good area for swimming and fishing, with a bomba bridge and natural coral reefs.
The Muricay Beach is located further away, at 4 kilometers, but the white sands and clear seas more than make up for the distance.
After you have established the direction the wounded deer went, they usually head for water, or low swampy areas. I heard a big whack, he jumped straight up into the air and took off like a shot.
They will try and hide, make sure you look under small clumps of evergreens, fallen logs, etc. I needed to know how large the lung area was for shots over 175 yards as some ammo manufacurers claim 200 yard accuracy on there products box. He crossed the field, over a road, through a small wood lot, across another field and another wood lot.
Having said that, the red dots on some of the trail cam pics are gonna result in a log tracking job. We tracked it to another cross road (large amount of blood) into a field where we can't locate the blood because of course it rained last night. Also remember that from a stand, you need to aim where you want the arrow to COME OUT on the opposite side.
At normal stand heights of 18 feet (avg)this will normally put your aiming spot a bit higher.
Understanding the anatomy of whitetail deer, mule deer, elk, moose or other big game is important to making a quick and clean harvest.
