Default Oglethorpe County 10 point

I shot this buck Saturday before last running a doe in Oglethorpe county. I had to holler at him about 80 yards through the woods to get him to stop. I was sitting on the ground and he mule kicked with the shot. 3 of us looked for a hour and never found a speck of blood. We then made circles just praying to find him. I was all but sure I hit him but the lack of blood or hair made me think it was a clean miss. Yesterday afternoon I was going in the same area hunting but from a different direction because of all the standing water. I smelled him and he was just off of one of our acces points in. Only thing I can figure is that's he was quartered away and the bullet didnt exit. I'm thankful to have the rack but disappointed to lose the meat. I rough scored him at 126 2/8ths last night. Short beams and a 13 inch inside spread hurt his score. I'm still very happy with him though.
