Yep Billy found it on his own. There were 4 doe and one spike buck. When I shot it was a flurry of deer everywhere. I saw one flailing on the ground and then it jumped up and jumped the feeder fence and took off. I lost it behind a tree and decided to look for it without crossing the trail it took in case it was not behind the tree where I last saw it and I wanted a fresh trail for the dogs if needed. Not to brag or anything, but the deer I shoot rarely run very far if at all, but I was shooting my wife's .243 that I had put a new scope on in the summer. I sighted in the gun and I knew where it hit, so I was upset and concerned when I saw the deer run off and then not to be found where I last saw it.

When I checked the spot of the shot, I found a small amount of blood and that was it. So Jacqueline and I headed to the house. When we brought the dogs back, I had them go to the feeder to show them the blood. Both dogs jumped in and I proceeded to show Lucy the blood. I then looked for Billy and he was not to be seen. We all looked around and then we saw him off to the rear and right of us. He was on the deer!

The deer was in the opposite direction of where I last saw it. This was the deer I was aiming at. It wasn't but 30 or so yards from where it was hit. I have come to the conclusion that the deer I saw flailing on the ground must have got knocked down in the commotion and then just got up and ran off.
