I know that all too well at Panola and in basically the same spot he is hunting. Very first hunt there I shoot a doe right at first light. I see her run 40-50 yards and fall. Get down and walk over and can't find blood. A grown up field looks very different from the ground. I did find her after doing circles for 10 minutes, but it is amazing how hard they can be to find in that grown up stuff. She didn't bleed a drop even though her insides were mushed completely.
